    Pradeep Thampy, Commercial Director - Motorcycle & Scooter tyres, Michelin India -

    "Biking is rapidly becoming an extension of the personality for the young at heart, which is fuelling the growth of the Indian premium bike segment. There is a gradual but sure shift from usage of bikes from utilitarian to leisure and recreation. This segment is only going to increase, with industry analysts pegging the annual growth at 25%. Michelin Pilot Road 2 and Michelin Pilot Street Radial will cater to the needs of this growing market and will provide the consumer with a fitting product."

    "With the introduction of these tyres in the market Michelin demonstrates its worldwide commitment to riders to provide new tyres, each of which delivers more performance - taking India to a higher plane of mobility. Over the years, Michelin has constantly demonstrated its commitment to make motorbike riding enjoyable in all situations and to develop tyre ranges that deliver the best performance across the board, in terms of dry or wet grip, feel and steering accuracy, and total mileage. Combining these qualities is the promise that underlies Michelin Total Performance. Michelin tyres deliver safety, riding enjoyment and total mileage."

    Why not for 18 inches rims? Michelin should've relaunch their legendary M45
