Michelin develops tyre for first electric Harley-Davidson

Harley-Davidson’s first all-electric motorcycle, the LiveWire, will use the newly custom-designed Michelin Scorcher Sport tyre as OE.

The Michelin Scorcher Sport tyre, co-developed and co-branded with Harley-Davidson, is designed to enhance the ride and handling performance of the LiveWire.

The new tyre integrates Michelin’s innovative dual compound technology (2CT and 2CT+), which increases wet and dry grip performance.

Along with advanced compounds developed through years of sport radial tyre innovation and extensive track testing, this technology enables the Michelin Scorcher Sport tyre to provide wear resistance in the centre of the tread with optimised grip on the shoulders, and also features a radial casing tuned specifically to extract the maximum performance from Harley-Davidson’s newest motorcycle.

The tyre will be available in sizes 120/70ZR17 (58W) at the front and 180/55ZR17 (73W) at the rear.

The Michelin Scorcher Sport-equipped LiveWire will also be available this year through select authorised Harley-Davidson dealerships in the US, Canada and most European countries.
