The rollout of these six new tyres in 2015 bears testimony to Michelin’s passion for motorsport, a passion dedicated to all motorcyclists. Racing means a lot more to Michelin however. As a longstanding component of the company’s DNA and philosophy, racing is an ideal laboratory for testing new technologies in the most extreme conditions of use. The synergy between racing and hypersport tyre development is particularly relevant today.

Having officially announced its return to MotoGP in 2016, Michelin is gearing up for a new challenge in this premier motorcycle racing championship where bikes deliver up to 250 hp. A continuously evolving showcase of advanced technology, MotoGP is set to adopt the 17-inch wheel size which is the market standard for sports and road motorcycles.

Boasting its 112th world championship across all disciplines, as well as an extraordinary 2014 season marked by two stunning victories at the Spanish and Italian Speed Championships, Michelin has established an impressive record of wins in motorcycle racing. An important showcase of Michelin knowhow, racing has long been a laboratory for technological excellence that has richly contributed to the six new tyre ranges.
