NEW DELHI: French tyre manufacturer Michelin has introduced co-branded Harley-Davidson range of six Michelin Scorcher tyres in India. The tyres will be available across the country at all Michelin authorised dealers in addition to the Harley Davidson network in India.
The tyre maker said in a statement, the Michelin Scorcher 11 and the Michelin Scorcher 31 are fitted as original equipment on Harley-Davidson Sportster, Dyna, V-Rod and Harley-Davidson Street motorcycles.
Michelin and Harley Davidson have been global partners since 2008.
Pradeep G Thampy, Commercial Director – Two Wheels for Michelin Africa-India-Middle East said “We are very pleased to bring the Michelin Scorchers, specially designed and engineered for passionate Harley-Davidson riders in India. With the inclusion of these tyres, today, our motor cycle tyre portfolio covers the widest possible range of leisure motorcycles in India.”
Michelin Scorcher 31
This tyre range was recently type-approved as accessory fitment for the Harley-Davidson Touring range and is fitted as original equipment on nearly all Harley-Davidson Sportster and Dyna models.
These tyres come with the special Amplified Density Technology (ADT) which has a rigid, high density carcass for enhanced agility and feedback, plus effective protection against punctures, claims Michelin.

The first radial tyre intended for the Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow, XR 1200, V-Rod Muscle and Night Rod Special models was the Michelin Scorcher 11 tyre which drew its inspiration from the firm’s Hypersport ranges.
