Avon Offers Cobra Tire Combination For Victory Motorcycles

By | General Posts

The new Cobra tire combination from Avon Tyres is the perfect choice for a wide variety of Victory motorcycles model year 2008 and newer. 

When compared to the stock tires, the new Cobra rear tire features a triple compound, including a longer lasting compound in the center, softer shoulder compound for improved grip and cornering performance, and a third compound that binds these compounds together to reduce tire temperature and increase mileage. The six-ply design for the rear 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 tires for even wear and longer life. 

“It’s important to select a replacement tire that’s designed to meet the unique needs of specific Victory motorcycle models,” stated Sukoshi Fahey, Sales & Marketing Manager, Avon Tyres. “The Cobra tread design resists uneven wear and tracking on irregular road surfaces, while the distinctive snakeskin effect sidewall makes these tires a real head turner.” 

The Cobra for Victory motorcycles is available in size 130/70R18 front, and180/60R16 rear for the following models:  Victory Vision® Street (2008-2009), Victory Vision® Tour (2008-2012), Arlen Ness® Victory Vision® (2009-2010), Arlen Ness® Vision Tour® (2011-2012), Victory Cross Roads® (2010) and Cross Roads/Classic LE (2011-2012), Victory Hard-Ball™ (2012), Victory 8-Ball® (2010-2011), Victory Cross Country® (2010-2012), Victory Cross Country Tour® (2012) and Victory Cory Ness Cross Country® (2011-2012).
