TRIUMPH CHOOSES MICHELIN FOR THE SPEED TRIPLE
October 22nd 2004.

After testing various rubber, Triumph has chosen the Michelin Pilot Power as the OE tyre for its 2005 Speed Triple.

Triumph says the Pilot Power is ideal for its 1050cc machine because it offers a high level of grip and durability. The tyre is designed for 'hypersports' and sports motorcycles, and uses technology derived from MotoGP. Its compound features a special formula only before seen in competition tyres. C-RAO (Compound-Racing Optimisation) means the softer tread warms up quicker, with no reduction in life.
