New Michelin Scooter Tires for Street Scooters

Monster Scooter Parts has recently received a huge shipment of Michelin scooter tires. We can now offer you a Michelin scooter tire in any one of seven lines:

  • Bopper

  • Gold Standard

  • Pilot City

  • Pilot Sport SC

  • Reggae

  • S1 Performance

  • S83 Retro

  • Particularly suited for today's higher-performance street scooters, the current line of Michelin scooter tires meet the very highest standards of safety, while excelling in terms of grip, durability, strength, and versatility.

    A full set of specs for any Michelin scooter tire can be seen here in the Michelin 2009 Motorcycle & Scooter Tires brochure and fitment guide.

    There was a time in the not-too-distant past when the Michelin brand wasn't exactly a household name in the United States. Tires sold in America were either made by Goodyear, Goodrich or Firestone. And a scooter, what's that? You mean one of those tiny little Italian motorcycles with training wheels stolen from some kid's bicycle? (If your earliest mental image of a motor scooter had Gina Lollobrigida zipping by on her Vespa in some arcane film by Federico Fellini, then you understand.) I suppose the term "urban commuter" existed too, but the phrase would no doubt be accompanied by the scene of thousands of pin-striped rat-race types being disgorged from the gaping mouth of the the underground subway station. And it must be in B&W; no mental images in color were allowed.

    Most Americans didn't become acquainted with the Michelin name until about the late 1960s, even though the Michelin brand was just as recognizable and respected in the rest of the world as any of the American brands were to us. Then they went and invented the oil shortages and carbon footprints [feetprint?] and all of the other worries and concerns that plague our the post-modern world. The planet has shrunk down a lot in the past 40 years and the street-legal scooter has evolved from just being a chic European icon into a dependable form of daily transportation for millions. Here in America, Michelin is now to tires what apples are to pie. Monster Scooter Parts is proud to offer a broad selection of these world-renown Michelin scooter tires.

    And today's urban commuters get to think in color.
