RiDE and Motor Cycle News readers rate Avon Tyres!

Avon Tyres’ motorcycle fitments have rated very highly in two recent product tests.
Readers from the UK’s biggest selling bike publication Motor Cycle News voted the Avon Storm ST third in their choice of tyre in the popular sports touring sector.
The tyre also scored the third highest average number of miles before replacement and showed a big saving on the tyres in first and second place, making it one of the most cost-effective tyres in its class.
The votes were from MCN readers – and more than 12,000 take part in the various product tests which together make it Britain’s biggest biking survey and the most comprehensive review of kit and accessories in the UK.
Meanwhile, in RiDE’s annual 2009 RiDER Power Survey issue, there were more positive results for Avon Tyres.

Also, in the category for longevity for front tyres the Storm ST came in third place, ably backed up by the Azaro ST in fifth place and the Avon Viper Sport in sixth. For rear tyres the Azaro ST took fourth place with the Storm ST in fifth, making it another successful RiDER Power for Avon Tyres.
