The new Michelin Anakee Adventure has been type approved for fitment to the BMW R 1250 GS and joins the Michelin Trail range alongside the existing Michelin Road 5 Trail (for 100 per cent road use) and Michelin Anakee Wild (50 per cent road/50 per cent off-road).
This latest addition to the range, which is designed for 80 per cent road use and 20 per cent track/trail use, means it now covers a wider spectrum of trail riders’ needs depending on how frequently they take their motorcycle off-road.
Michelin says the Anakee Adventure stands out for its exceptional grip on wet roads, which is due to its new-generation silica-enhanced compound. It also combines outstanding performance in dry weather with stability and resistance to wear thanks to two Michelin-patented technologies: Michelin Dual Compound 2CT and Michelin Dual Compound 2CT+.
Its new, open tread pattern provides the necessary traction when straying onto unsealed tracks and trails.
The new Michelin Anakee Adventure will be commercially available in Australia from 2019.
