dealers get sneak peek at new avon rubber

The official launch of Avon’s new Spirit ST sport-touring tyre is planned for late spring but the bike industry is getting a first look at the brand-new design this week. The Melksham-based manufacturer is displaying early production tyres on the Direct Distribution and Bradbury Bros stands at Motorcycle Trade Expo, Stoneleigh, which runs until tomorrow (9.30am – 4pm, postcode CV8 2LZ).

The Spirit ST (small sample pictured) is the successor to Avon’s acclaimed Storm range and has been designed to provide “excellent levels of wet grip, together with superb handling” on a wide range of popular sport-touring bikes.

Avon says: “Featuring a radical new tread pattern, the Spirit ST uses the very latest high-silica synthetic rubber compounds for improved mileage.”

See the new Spirit ST tyres on the Avon distributors’ stands at the Motorcycle Trade Expo, at Stoneleigh Exhibition Centre. Direct Distribution is on stand A16, and Bradbury Bros are at stand B20.
