    Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.


    The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

  • Avon Venom motorcycle tire provides low noise levels.
  • Long motorcycle tire life thanks to low rolling resistance.
  • Excellent cornering stability.
  • Reinforced motorcycle tire fitments available for motorcycles carrying heavy loads.

Please don't stop making this tire.

Comments On Mar 07, 2013:I bought this tire last year with 37-plus K miles on my bike, I am now 1100 miles short of 60 K and still have usable tread, that's over 21,000 miles and still going. I also bought the Dyna Beads and put them in when I mounted the tire. All I can say is, "Great traction and ride in all weather conditions"... I live in Oregon so I know riding in rain.

Great tire. Exccelent traction

Comments On Jun 29, 2012:This tire replaced a Shinko. The Shinko was a great tire but lasted 5k miles and as the tread wore so did the traction. I've had this Avon on now for over 11k miles. It is now starting to cup a little and I've nearly worn the tread out. I'm a bigger guy (280) and pull a 3-400lb trailer so I'm not complaining at all. I really have had no traction loss at all. Still rides excellent in rain. I've had this bike in the dirt, on gravel roads a lot and even through a mud road pulling the trailer. It has been a great tire.

Way better than Dunlop

Comments On Jun 06, 2012:VERY GOOD tires.. WAY better than the Dunlop 404’s that were on the bike.
The bike does not want to follow rut’s in the road. I am more confidant taking turns and curves at a faster rate of speed.

better than the stock Dunflop ;)

Comments On Mar 30, 2011:The ride is so much smoother, and it makes you more confidant going around curves and braking. I ride hard on the gas and still got over 6k miles on the rear.
