Michelin will be the sole supplier of tyres to teams participating in the MotoGP World Championship series which will be held in various European countries starting 2016. This was announced by Dorna Sports, promoter and organiser of the event, which is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM).

The MotoGPWorld Championship features the discipline’s most technologically sophisticated bikes, the power output of which exceeds 250hp. The level of performance they deliver both mechanically and dynamically is very high. The series also stars the world’s best riders and their efficiency is notably due to the confidence they have in their machines, particularly their tyres. The discipline consequently serves as an exceptional proving ground for the technological innovations of tomorrow.

“Our policy of carrying over our technologies from track to street fits perfectly with the new technical regulations which are due to be introduced in 2016 and which will dictate the use of 17-inch wheels. That is why Michelin decided to submit a bid following the tender process instigated by Dorna Sports. We take this opportunity to thank the governing bodies for the confidence they have placed in us today. Their confidence recognizes Michelin’s expertise and the 26 Riders’ world titles it has secured”, says MICHELIN Motorsport’s Director Pascal COUASNON.

The MICHELIN Total Performance concept consists of constantly and simultaneously pushing the envelope in all the areas that influence tire performance. Michelin is geared to provide riders with increasingly higher levels of grip in dry and wet conditions alike.
