The MICHELIN Commander II creates a new standard with regard to durability, yet without making any compromises in terms of wet weather grip, maneuverability or stability. This performance balance provides yet another eloquent illustration of Michelin's research and development philosophy: no performance gain to be achieved on one front to the detriment of another.
- Silica Rain Technology (SRT) which integrates silica into the compound of the tire tread, while the MICHELIN Commander II's tread pattern has been designed to prevent all forms of uneven wear.
- The exclusive architecture of the MICHELIN Commander II brings both maneuverability and stability. The tire's more rigid, high-density carcass improves maneuverability, while the aramid fiber crown ply of the rear tire enhances resistance and lightness for impeccable stability, even at high speeds.
- The numerous longitudinal grooves of the tire's tread pattern optimize water dispersal for outstanding wet weather grip.

A new standard in cruiser tyre longevity: Commissioned third-party tests* show that the MICHELIN® Commander® II rear tire lasts almost twice as long as its main competitors* Amplified Density Technology: a highly dense, more rigid tire carcass which helps deliver excellent feedback and handling. Aramid tread plies on the rear tyre resists centrifugal growth, along with weight savings which provides perfect stability, even at high speed. All-new rubber compound formulated for exceptional grip on wet or dry roads, along with remarkable durability. A groundbreaking new look: unique tread design, premium sidewall and innovative longitudinal tread pattern for efficient water evacuation and grip on wet roads. *Tests conducted by Texas Test Fleet in 2011 on public roads comparing MICHELIN Commander II, Metzeler ME880 and Dunlop D407/408 in sizes 130/80 B 17 (front) and 180/65 B 16 (rear). Individual results may vary depending on motorcycle type and operating conditions.
