Two ranges for maxi scooters : The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Scooter and the MICHELIN Pilot Power 3 Scooter

To meet the needs of scooter users in a fast-growing market that has more than doubled in size in Europe over the past eight years, Michelin is poised to launch two new tyre ranges during the first quarter of 2016: the MICHELIN Pilot Power 3 Scooter and MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Scooter.

Derived directly from the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 and MICHELIN Power 3 motorbike ranges, they benefit from the brand’s vast expertise in this area and feature technologies never previously seen in the radial scooter tyre market.

These two ranges, which are intended for Maxi Scooters of 400cc and upwards that were originally fitted with radial tyres, complement one another depending upon the desired use.

The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Scooter will satisfy safety-conscious users in all weather conditions* thanks to their ‘full-depth’ sipes.

Another very welcome quality is the tyre’s excellent durability, courtesy of its silica-reinforced rubber.

The exceptional grip levels offered by the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 Scooter are consistent across a wide range of temperatures, from 0°C to more than 40°C, and on wet or dry roads.

The sharp-looking MICHELIN Pilot Power 3 Scooter is intended for scooter users accustomed to a sportier riding style and in search of a tyre that offers excellent manoeuvrability and grip on dry surfaces. It benefits from MICHELIN 2CT dual-compound technology which combines grip and durability.
