Avon Tyres has released a new TrailRider tire size aimed at Honda’s new Africa Twin. The adventure touring tire is now available in 150/70R18 rear size, which also fits the recently introduced KTM 1090 Adventure.

Honda’s original XRV750 Africa Twin was one of the most evocative bikes of the 1980s and ’90s, and Honda has brought the legendary name back to life with the latest CRF1000 version. The new Africa Twin offers genuine off-road abilities and celebrated road performance, plus an optional dual-clutch transmission (DCT) automatic gearbox.

“This new addition to the TrailRider line up is great news for fans of the popular Africa Twin bike,” said Ken Warner, Vice President of Marketing for Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America. “The TrailRider combines a comfortable on-road ride with the ability to navigate off-road.”

The TrailRider 150/70R18 70V AV54 provides excellent on-road performance balanced with solid off-road manners, and is designed for adventure tourists who spend most of their time on asphalt, but seek the ability to venture onto dirt trails and gravel tracks.

The TrailRider includes Avon’s trademarked 3D Sipe technology, which uses interlocking 3D teeth inside narrow tread slits to improve warmup and wet-weather performance without affecting stability. In addition, a new tread compound uses a super-rich silica mix for superb wet grip, while giving excellent mileage and wear characteristics.

The rear tire features a multi-compound tread that offers a medium compound in the center of the tire for better wear, and softer compounds on the shoulders for tenacious cornering grip.
