THIS VERSION HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY MICHELIN. A NEW AND UPDATED VERSION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN 2022
Introducing our first tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) for motorcycles – bringing new levels of safety to riders for whom tyre condition is paramount.
MICHELIN TPMS – BIKE by Fit2Go detects a tyre in distress through loss of pressure, fast leakage or an increase in temperature – often the sign of an impending blowout. Its compact display flashes as brightly as a mobile phone torch if it detects an issue, plus identifies whether it is the front or rear tyre affected.
This patented solution can be fitted in less than two minutes, bringing the same direct TPMS technology already proven in the passenger car and van markets to two-wheels for the first time.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This wireless system needs no programming and features a compact LCD screen which fits into a magnetic mount placed on a prominent part of the bike. The fully sealed and buttonless device can be quickly removed for security and is small enough to fit in a pocket.
The display offers a battery life of up to three months, with the USB-powered inductive charger making it simple to top-up.
Once fitted, the unit displays the pressure of both tyres, in either psi or bar, toggling between the front and rear at set intervals.
Riders will see a low-pressure warning if a tyre becomes under-inflated by 15%, an enhanced alert when the pressure either drops by 25%, or if over-inflated by 35% or more. There are also alerts for high tyre temperatures or fast leakage (at least 2 psi per minute).
WHY SHOULD YOU FIT IT?
Riding on incorrectly inflated rubber or suffering a tyre failure on two wheels is a potential nightmare scenario for any rider.
Our system continually monitors both tyres and provides precise pressure readings – unlike indirect TPMS solutions which typically offer estimates via the bike’s brake sensors.
Under-inflated tyres can seriously affect a motorcycle’s handling as they become deformed, reducing contact with the road and risking the tyre being pulled off the rim. The tyres are also more likely to overheat or be damaged by debris, whilst over-inflation can lead to uneven wear, reduced handling and poor ride comfort.
- Our unique ‘plug & play’ kit comes as standard with:
- Magnetic display mount
- USB-powered inductive charger
- Two sensors to replace the original valve caps
- Two locking wheel nuts with accompanying spanner (optional fit)
- Installation instructions
