Avon Tyres has unveiled a new Cobra tire combination for the popular Harley-Davidson Fat Boy (2007 model year and newer), Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy (2006 model year) and Fat Boy Lo (2010 model year and newer). The new Cobra 140/75R17 Cobra AV71 (front) and 200/55R17 Cobra AV72 (rear) make the perfect combination for incredible handling and stability, according to the company.
When compared to stock tires, the Cobra provides the Fat Boy owner with nimble handling at lean angles and in a variety of conditions. This Cobra set features specially designed Force Following Grooves (FFG) that transmit energy from the road evenly across the surface of the tire to improve handling and reduce irregular wear. The snakeskin effect sidewall along with the Cobra logo and special tread design offer exceptional style as well as performance.
“At Avon Tyres, we know that Harley-Davidson customers want the right combination of style and performance in a replacement tire, so we ... engineer the perfect combination that will offer consistent performance throughout the life of the tire,” said Sukoshi Fahey, sales and marketing manager, Avon Tyres.
