Product Details

This tire is the perfect balance of high-performance materials and water-shedding tread. It is impressive on dry pavement and amazing on wet.

The Tri-Compound Extrusion (TE) and Advanced Variable Belt Density (A-VBD) construction combines a durable center for stability and longevity with softer edges for excellent grip at high lean angles.

The Storm 2 Ultra provides consistent handling and stability for the life of the tire, fast warm-up times, and superior grip. The tread gives optimal water dispersal and resistance to uneven wear to improve braking. Please Note: Tire with V speed rating has reinforced construction.

Includes Avon’s road hazard warranty. W-Rated, Tubeless.

    Comments about Avon AV56 ST Storm 2 Ultra Sport Touring Radial Motorcycle Tire:

    I'm into sport touring and usually make a 3-6k mile trip each season, I've found that these tires maintain a consistent high level of performance right down to the wear bars, there are others I've got better mileage out of, but as they reach the last 20-25% of their life cycle I want to remove them anyway because of the decline in feedback. I'll take a bit less distance for confident peg scraping handling right to the end. That's what these Avons provide, however on a BMW R1200R, after 5-7k miles the rear is done, and the front will go 9k +.

      A great tire for my Buell Ulysses. I have lost track of exactly how many miles I have put on this tire, but I think it is in excess of 7K.

        Comments about Avon AV56 ST Storm 2 Ultra Sport Touring Radial Motorcycle Tire:

        Early wear on rear most likely from high speed return trip from Key West to
        Savannah with strong winds for over 700 miles. Front has third of tread
        Remaining. Rear center has several Thousand miles left. Replacing with
        Second generation Storm. Hard to fault for all around tire on sport tourer
        ST1300.
