Avon Tyres??

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by lordtb, Feb 11, 2006.

  1. I have picked up a broshure for AVON tyres from my local motorbike store... the sales dude tells me they are better than Michelin and Dunlop.. but are more expensive...

    does any one have any expiriance with these AVON tyres??

  2. Do they sell door to door, and do party plans?
    "Avon calling" :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  3. I had an Avon on the back of the Hornet when I bought it at 52,000 kms and I replaced it at 57,400, so I got around 5,000kms out of it, but I have no idea how much it had done before.

    Now back in the 70s, the Avon RoadRunner was THE tyre to have (but who cares now :grin: ?)
  4. BIKE magazine used one on there GSXR project bike when they firxt got it and they LOVED it. They said it was SUPER Sticky and had excellent feel, albeit expensive!
  5. :WStupid: The brit mags are a big rap for them, they're only just sarting out here - like the Continentals.

    They have a very respected name in Europe and the US for bike tyres. Pro Accessories distribute them here in AUS, and they are just starting to ramp them up after clearing up some (apparently) predatory actions on dealers by the more established manufacturers.
