MICHELIN Scorcher Sport Tires Enhance Ride On Harley-Davidson LiveWire

The custom-designed MICHELIN Scorcher Sport tires have been selected to equip the first Harley-Davidson all-electric motorcycle, the all-new LiveWire.

The custom-designed MICHELIN Scorcher Sport tires have been selected to equip the first Harley-Davidson all-electric motorcycle, the all-new LiveWire. The new Michelin Scorcher Sport tire, co-developed and co-branded with Harley-Davidson, is designed to enhance the ride and handling performance of Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle, leading a planned portfolio of electric two-wheelers aimed to establish Harley-Davidson as the leader in the electrification of motorcycles.

The MICHELIN Scorcher Sport tire integrates Michelin’s innovative Dual Compound Technology (2CT and 2CT+), the most advanced compounds ever used in MICHELIN Scorcher tires. These compounds extend the performance of the MICHELIN Scorcher tire range by providing outstanding levels of wet and dry grip. Along with advanced compounds developed through years of sport radial tire innovation and extensive track testing, this technology enables the MICHELIN Scorcher Sport tire to provide wear resistance in the center of the tread with optimized grip on the shoulders, and also features a radial casing tuned specifically to extract the maximum performance from Harley-Davidson’s newest motorcycle.

The distinctive tread pattern and patented velvet sidewall design complement the styling of this innovative Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Michelin invests more than $770 million in research and development annually. For this project, Michelin engineers worked directly with Harley-Davidson for two years to co-design the MICHELIN Scorcher Sport tires specifically for the LiveWire. These tires further illustrate MICHELIN Total Performance, in which Michelin is committed to providing riders with an optimal balance of performances, from riding pleasure to safety to longevity.

The MICHELIN Scorcher Sport-equipped LiveWire will be available in 2019 through select authorized Harley-Davidson dealerships in the United States, Canada and most European countries.
