Michelin has brought in four new motorcycle tyres for the Malaysian market from the latest ‘Power’ family. The four new Michelin Power products are the Power 5, Power GP, Power Cup 2 and the sweet, sweet Power Slick 2. Should be some great fun around Sepang Circuit, eh?

Big bike riders can do so with the street-friendly Michelin Power 5 and Power GP and for the circuits, opt for the Power Cup 2 and Power Slick 2.
