Specially designed for the Honda Gold Wing 1800, the Cobra GL 1800 tires from Avon Motorcycle Tyres are the perfect choice for the rigorous demands of the powerful launches, fast acceleration, hard cornering and hard braking of this powerful bike.
When compared to the stock tires, the Cobra GL 1800 rear tire offers an increased load index of 80 to handle nearly 1,000 pounds. A triple compound, including a longer lasting compound in the center, softer shoulder compound for improved grip and cornering performance, and a third compound underneath, work together to reduce tire temperature and increase mileage. This six-ply tire includes two Aramid belts and a nylon belt to reinforce and stabilize the tire carcass, reduce tire flex under heavier loads, and provide a more comfortable ride. Force Following Grooves transmit energy across the surface of the tire for even wear and longer life.
“It’s important to use a model-specific tire for the Honda Gold Wing 1800 because this bike places rigorous demands on the tires,” stated Sukoshi Fahey, Sales & Marketing Manager, Avon Tyres. “This bike is fast and powerful. The Cobra GL 1800 tires have been developed with big, solid blocks of rubber to resist irregular wear, the elimination of the center groove for better handling in the wet and on irregular surfaces, and an increased load index for the rear tire.”
The Cobra GL 1800 tires are available in size 130/70R18 (#90000001167) front, and size 180/60R16 (#90000001418) rear. Both include the popular Cobra snakeskin effect sidewall for the ultimate style.
