Michelin Commander II Tires
These Michelin Commander II tires that are made by Michelin to optimize the bike’s ride
and handling are an awesome addition to your bike. These tires come loaded with many features and technological innovations that have made this one of Americas great tire companies. Reviews for these tires on the scout or scout sixty can be found on YouTube and there are quite a few. They all have positive things to say about these tires when it comes to handling in wet or dry conditions.
Now I know there are other brands of tires that you can choose to put on your baby, but for my baby I will be putting on a set of these. Do I rally need new tires, No, I don’t but the OEM tires that came with the scout sixty are the Kendra tires and I have had some front end skidding in the rain on turning and some other events that just don’t make me trust the Kendra tires.
The Kendra tires that came with the scout sixty have been reliable and have held up to 4000 miles that I have put on the bike, but the performance has not always been there for me. And now I heard that Indian Motorcycle is now switching to the Pirelli tires for the 2018 models of the scout sixty. So it is not just me that decided that the Kendra tires were not as good as hoped for.
The Michelin Commander II tires are loaded with lots of features that are as follows;
- Innovative look with a premium sidewall finish
- Last up to 25,000 miles
- It is made with Michelin Amplified Density Technology
