Avon AV71 Cobra Front Tires

The AV71 has a deep tread depth for better mileage in a touring tire. The grooves are tapered for maximum contact patch and increasing mileage. Available in "White Wall" and standard blackwall, the sidewall of the tire has unique "snakeskin" etching for a singular look. The absence of a center line on the AV71 Cobra decreases negative handling effects on steel-gratings found on bridges and the rounder profile helps to increase turn-in for cruisers, customs, and touring bikes.

Features:

  • Designed for the power cruiser/custom/touring market
  • Incorporates sports tire technology for nimble handling
  • Special construction to deal with heavy loads
  • Incredible stability and longevity - perfect for touring
  • Unique 'snakeskin-effect' sidewall and aggressive tread pattern
  • Extra wide sizes for custom bikes
  • Ultra-quiet
  • Unique pattern for Honda Goldwing fitment
  • Available in a wide range of sizes, incorporating fitments for Harley Davidson's V-Rod, Triumph's Rocket III, Honda's Goldwing and Valkyrie plus some sizes for custom bike applications
  • Whitewalls available in some sizes indicated by WWW

2 up on a Goldwing on the SCMA's 3 Flags Rally
The SCMA's (Southern California's Motorcycle Association) 40th annual 3 Flags Tour - run every Labor Day weekend from Mexico to Canada. although the rally only lasted 5 days, wifey and I stayed on the road for 16 days total ( our Wing was loaded with gear!). The tires saw the heat of SoCal at the start, rain, wind, frost and even the deck of some ferries as we made our way north to Canada. Low to no noise, excellent traction and secure tracking even on some construction "roads" up in Canada...ran 41 psi on both front and rear, no evidence of premature wear or tire failure. This is the second set of Avon's I have had on a Goldwing...Great tires....would purchase again.

Awesome tire!
After doing extensive research on all motorcycle tire manufacturers, I decided on Avon; replacing stock Michelin tires. I have ridden on various other manufacturers tires over the years, and wanted something I have not tried yet. Note: My style of riding is mostly just cruising and short touring on a Harley, but I do some aggressive riding once in a while when with sport bike guys.

Avon has a large range of tires sizes, and obviously competitive with quality and technology. I wanted tires that looked great and performed well when I ride hard.

I have ridden about 700 miles with a new set of Avon tires and could not be happier. I have ridden in temperatures as low as the 30's and they still stick good to the road on corners at moderate speeds. I will also say that this tire is super stable. No more worries on black tar snakes, grooved pavement, and bridge decks. The bike does not budge now, and holds steady and true. One other big thing I noticed is that the death wobble on my Harley 48 is totally gone; I did put a 150 on the front from the stock 130.

FYI - My personal rating for tires are as follows (in order of Best overall):
1. Avon
2. Michelin
3. Metzeler
4. Pirelli
5. Shinko
6. Continental
7. Bridgestone
8. Dunlap

So, if you are in the market for new tires, leave your Dunlap tires in the dust. Many riders love them, especially on H-Ds and other cruisers, but I have never liked them.

Again, I ride it all weather conditions; hot/cold, wet/dry. Avon tires may be overkill for sunny day weekend warriors, but perfect for hardcore riders that want the best of everything.

I only gave a 4 star for tread and wet traction because the tires are still new and I have only ridden in rain showers (not a down pour). I have not noticed any tread wear as of yet.

Huge improvement over stock
Switched from the stock Metzlers to Avon Cobra up front at 10,000 miles and what a difference! Loads more grip and quicker turn-in during a 200-mile break-in in mountain twisties, all at a comparable price. Can't speak to the tread life yet, but I'll definitely be buying this tire again, even if it doesn't make it another 10,000 miles.

So far so good
This tire replace an older Venom tire. So far, my only complaint is that I couldn't actually get the 2nd bead on the rim & had to take it to a shop... past that, it scrubbed in easily and is performing well. Comfortable & compliant. Using balance beads as well. More to come after a couple thousand miles.

Excellent value and service life
This is my second set of Avon Cobra tires. I got 16,500 miles from my first set, on a 2008 Softail Springer. The original Dunlops only lasted 6500 miles,( cupped to the point the bike couldn't be ridden anymore), with only the outer tread remaining. These Springers are harder on tires than a cruiser style bike. I wouldn,t use anything else!

Great tire for performance cruiser.
I'm running the 120/70-21 on front on my built FXR. I've spent more time on sport bikes than cruisers, and while this isn't quite as soft and sticky as a true sport tire, it is reinforced for a heavier bike, sticks great for scraping pegs, and seems like its going to have a lot longer tread life than a Supercorsa. It also comes in a lot of sizes for custom applications.

I like the look of the Pirelli Night Dragon's better, but I haven't tried those yet so I'm not sure how they would compare performance-wise.

poor handling at high speeds
I've been using Avon tires for about the last 5 years. They are the most expensive tire that fits my Victory Vision. This is the second Avon tire I've purchased that will not allow you to run over 90 mph. Extreme wobble sets in . Tire is balanced and properly mounted with correct pressure. I will go back to O.E.M.

research indicates good results especially in wet conditions. OEM FXDF tires average on dry conditions but get loose quickly in wet conditions.
Lloyd H on Sep 28, 2015
Simple, because they were the only tires I could find the day I needed to order them. If Michelin still made Gold Wing tires that is what I would have. If you check previous orders, I purchased Michelins for my Buell and BlackBird.
Roy Hoisington H on Aug 17, 2015
Because Michelin does not make wing tires

Can you use a tube with this tire. I have OEM spoke rim?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I use tubes with this tire on my spoked-rimmed Bonneville and previously did so with Avon Venoms.
what is the speed rating of this tire?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My particular front tire (100/90-19WW) has an "H" speed rating, which is 130 mph. Some other AV Cobra front tires have a "V" speed rating, which is 149 mph.
I put the Avon Cobra 150/80/16 71V on the front of my 08 FXDF, while riding I got a screw thru the center... this tire has under 800 miles on it, can I run a tube in it instead of replacing again?
Stephen S on Jun 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That sounds like a good idea to me ,the tube . See if you can plug the tire where the screw went in . I'd say as long as the tire is not too tore up ,a tube and re balance . If the damage is too severe I'd recommend replacement . I recommend to err on the safe side ,for sure . There is not much of a footprint of tire between you and the road and cord damage could spread under heat and stress . I know it's cash you'd rather not part with ,but a blo out at freeway speed could be catastrophic. . Ride safe ,ride free
Just recived 2 Avon Cobra Trike Front Tires 130/70R18 63V for a honda goldwing trike As per the Avon website they should have"TRIKE" embossed on the side., THEY DO NOT. How do I know they are the correct tires ? Also the load rating is "B" this is also incorrect
DAVID S on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have purchased this tire in the past and it is a good reliable tire. As far as the tire not having the word trike. I would call a local honda dealer to verify the load rating and ask if this tire is accommodating to your needs. Hope I have been helpful. Enjoy your ride on the avon's
120/70ZR19 is this a Radial or Bias ply tire? I'm looking to pair with the 180/65B16 which is Bias ply they say you should not mix
Darryl W on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm not a technical guy and dont even now the difference between the radial abd bias ply, but all I can say is that these tires offers great cornering capabilities and are very comfortable.
5/8", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2"
A shopper on Jan 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: "Avon lists the AV71 Cobra tires indicated with "WWW" as a "Wide White Wall." While the actual height of the white band will vary from size to size, the entire sidewall from the lip to where it meets the tread is white.
