Sports, promoter and organiser of the MotoGP World Championship, which is
sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), has
announced that Michelin will be the sole supplier of tyres to teams
participating in the series from 2016.
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 recognises Michelin’s expertise and the 26
Riders’ world titles it has secured”, says Michelin Motorsport’s Director
Pascal Couasnon, in a press release from the company.
MotoGP World 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.
