Michelin is celebrating 25 years since it launched the first radial motorcycle road tyres by attending the regular monthly ‘Streetfighter Night’ at the Ace Café London, on Friday 7th September which, this year also coincides with start of the café’s 19th annual Ace Café Reunion, with special guest and MotoGP legend, ex 250 and 500cc World Champion, Freddie Spencer.
Adding to the spectacle, “Fast Freddie” will arrive at the café at around 6-6.30pm on a Michelin Pilot road 3 liveried Virgin Limobike, which was painted to mark the company’s switch to the ground-breaking Michelin sport touring tyres, which are now fitted to its entire fleet of Yamaha FJR 1300s.
Michelin will also have its specially-equipped “Fill Up With Air” van at the event offering riders expert advice and the opportunity to have their tyres and tyre pressure checked by Michelin staff.
Specialist motorcycle tyre dealer FWR will also be at the event offering special deals on Michelin tyres to mark the 25th anniversary.
The evening also coincides with the arrival at the café of the “Continental Run” with riders attending from all across Europe.
