Michelin logo
Michelin Open link in a new window, 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:
