Michelin Announces Motorcycle Tire Recall

To date, no accidents or injuries reported

GREENVILLE, S.C., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Michelin has notified the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Transport
Canada that it is recalling Michelin(R) Pilot(R) Power 2CT and Pilot
(R) Power 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) front motorcycle tires with the "Made in
France" markings in the United States and Canada. This recall
involves these specific tires only and has no impact on any other
Michelin tires. Related actions are under way in other countries.

An examination of these tires showed a possible defect in the tread
due to a manufacturing irregularity. No cases of pressure loss have
been reported and no accidents have occurred.

Because rider safety is the primary concern, Michelin has decided as
a precaution to replace the 120/70 ZR 17 (58W) Michelin Pilot Power
2CT and Michelin Pilot Power front tires, which can be identified by
the following markings on the sidewall:

-- a "Made in France" label
-- DOT 6UCW 980T or DOT 6UCW 979T

Any consumer in the United States or Canada who believes they are
affected by the recall should not wait to receive notification but
should call Michelin Consumer Relations at 1 866 324 2835.

The company will be replacing all potentially affected tires in a
comprehensive commitment to retrieve from the market any tire that
does not meet Michelin quality standards. Replacement tires are
available at no cost (including mounting and balancing) to consumers
through participating Michelin(R) motorcycle tire servicing retailers.
