Michelin announced its entry into the scooter tyre market in India with the launch of MICHELIN City Pro tyres for scooters and motorcycles of up to 150cc. The MICHELIN City Pro is claimed to be an advanced two-wheeler tyre range that is best suited for daily commute. MICHELIN City Pro tyres are available nationally at Michelin premium dealerships – Michelin Priority Partners, the TYREPLUS network and Michelin retailers.
The combination of MICHELIN Overlap Technology (MOT), three reinforced plies and a layer of rubber beneath the tread makes the MICHELIN City Pro extremely robust, thus reducing the risk of punctures. Its new tread pattern with large circumferential grooves delivers improved wet grip. MICHELIN City Pro is the latest generation of Michelin scooter and motorcycle tyres, especially designed for intensive urban use, subjected to the most demanding of impacts and stresses.

Pradeep G Thampy, Commercial Director, Two Wheels, Michelin Asia, Africa and Middle East, says that the scooters have become increasingly popular in India and emerged as a preferred choice of commuting because of ease of riding and parking in congested areas. He adds that the convenience of push start, fuel efficiency and comfort of automatic transmission are enablers to this new trend, which has also seen more and more women adopt scooters as their choice of mobility and the MICHELIN City Pro will offer daily commuters with a comfortable in-city ride experience.
