Metzeler are a German tyre brand that were originally founded back in 1863. Metzeler are now based in Milan, Italy and have been owned by Pirelli since 1986.

The Metzeler Custom Tour, the name of the initiative, will start from Motor Bike Expo (MBE) in Verona over the weekend and end with Wheels and Waves at Lido di Camaiore in October, stopping off at some of the most famous and iconic European motorcycle rallies. These also include the Harley-Davidson European 120th Anniversary celebration in Budapest, to celebrate the 120 years of the Milwaukee-based company, and European Bike Week, Europe's largest motorcycle gathering.

The German tyre brand and two-wheels specialist will be present in all these events with a booth entirely dedicated to Cruisetec and ME 888 Marathon Ultra, tyres designed for the latest generation of cruisers. On the occasion of Hamburg Harley Days, Harley-Davidson European 120th Anniversary celebration and European Bike Week, in addition to offering a free tyre pressure check-up service, motorcyclists will be able to buy (and have fitted) Metzeler tyres during the rally.

Cruisetec are a new generation of tyres, designed specifically for V-Twin motorcycles, that allow for easy handling and cornering grip, thanks to an innovative carcass and a tread compound that ensures optimal grip. They give superior performance. ME 888 Marathon Ultra tyres give enhanced riding enjoyment and high mileage.

The Whitewall version of the ME 888 Marathon White Wall stands out for its classic style that enhances the look of cruiser and custom motorbikes.
