Michelin Tyre Pressure Monitoring System
Under-inflated tyres can seriously affect a motorcycle’s handling as they become deformed, reducing contact with the road and risking the tyre being pulled off the rim. The tyres are also more likely to overheat or be damaged by debris, whilst over-inflation can lead to uneven wear, reduced handling and poor ride comfort.
Introducing our first tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for motorcycles, mopeds, scooters and all two-wheel modes of transport – bringing new levels of safety to riders for whom tyre condition is paramount.
MICHELIN TPMS – Bike detects a tyre in distress through loss of pressure, fast leakage or an increase in temperature – often the sign of an impending blowout. Its compact display flashes as brightly as a mobile phone torch if it detects an issue, plus identifies whether it is the front or rear tyre affected.
Our patented solution can be fitted in less than two minutes, bringing the same direct TPMS technology already proven in the passenger car and van markets to two-wheels for the first time.
Our system continually monitors both tyres and provides precise pressure readings – unlike indirect TPMS solutions which typically offer estimates via the bike’s brake sensors.
Our unique ‘plug & play’ kit comes as standard with:
- Magnetic display mount.
- USB-powered inductive charger.
- Two sensors to replace the original valve caps.
- Two locking wheel nuts with accompanying spanner (optional fit).
- Installation instructions.
