Michelin , well known for their tires and guidebooks, have entered into a new product range: power and lights. Their aim is to provide power and light to people working on their motorcycles (or cars) in a garage, be it professionals or be it private individuals.
To be able to do this, Michelin have associated themselves with another French company, Finatech (located very close to the Michelin factory), to provide us with a very large selection of lights and power products.
Their new selection is indeed enormous, too much to list here, but we'll show you a few of the more interesting and applicable products:
Reference number M34L12
This 26 LED light bar runs on a rechargeable battery, supplied with both AC and DC chargers.
The battery life, in other words the number of hours of light you get is around 5 hours.
The base of the light is supplied with a powerful magnet, and the whole thing weighs 448 grams.
The light can not roll, so don't worry putting it on the ground and it rolls away.
Reference number M40L23
This is a handheld torch made out of aluminium with a high-performance LED. There is a rubber handle in the middle to ensure that the lamp doesn't slip out of your hand.
It uses 2 D-type batteries.

The light emits 2462 lumens (at 6500 kelvins) and uses 36 W power.

LED Warning Triangle
Reference number M34L43
This is not a garage item, but a travel item (and more for cars than motorcycles). It is a warning triangle fitted with 20 LED lights, making sure that you are seen when you break down alongside the road. It uses 6 AA batteries, but it can also be plugged into the vehicles 12V system with the 35 meter cable that is supplied with the triangle. It also comes with a handheld torch so that you can change your (Michelin) tire at night, or do those repairs alongside the road. Nice and safe.
