Avon AV72 Cobra Rear Tires

The AV72 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 AV72 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:

  • Incorporates sportbike 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

Please Note: The 130/60VR23 tire is suitable for both front and rear fitment.

Best Motorcycle 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. Though this is a rear tire review, I will also say that the front 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.

Great traction in wet or dry and long lasting and truely designed for the large touring bikes.
I run the Avon Cobra AV71 (Front) and AV72 (Rear) on my 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour and have found this tire to handle great in both the dry and the wet. I am getting 15,000 miles from the rear Avon Cobra AV72 tires and the fronts would easily reach 30,000. I do change my tires front and rear at the same time but measuring the tread depth on the front tires I could make it safely to 30,000 on the front Avon Cobra AV71.

What makes the Avon Cobra really stand out is they developed the AV72 180/60R16 80H for the heavy touring bikes, the "80" is the weight rating of the tire which is good for up to 922 pounds verses other tires that carry the "74" weight rating which is only good for up to 827 pounds, that is a 165 pound difference.

As for handling I have never had the Avon Cobra AV71 and AV72 slip or leave me in a bad situation, they stick like they are on rails from accelerating to running through a set of sweepers these tires just stick and track like they are on rails.

We all have to trust our lives with the tires we put on our bikes, for me I will continue to run the Avon Cobra tire with the "80" (922 pound) weight rating and by pass all the other tries with the "74" (827 pound) weight rating. Avon has developed a great tire in the Cobra AV71 and AV72 series.

I highly recommend the Avon Cobra AV71 front and the AV72 rear tires.

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 eveidence 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.

Excellent Gold Wing Tire!
After a number of years on my wing, this is my first set of Cobras - and, Im hooked.

Great handling and braking - excellent looks. I'm looking forward to the milage, but so far these are the best tires I've ever had on the bike. Buy with confidence.

Much better than stock dunlops for a Sportster Iron.
Well, I only had the tires about 3000 miles so I can't rate the tread life. However, the grip is amazing compared to the dunlops and shinkos before. There's traction up until things start dragging, and hard breaking feels much better. Wet traction was good, but when on a Harley you know to calm down when it rains. If you want to throw the little sportster around then these are the tires to do it on.

Avon AV72 Cobra Rear
- Replacement From Stock Dunlop Tire Series- D407 240/40R18 Blackwall- 18 in. Rear-41688-08A.
- The stock rear Dunlop tread was gone in 3500 miles and the "STEALER", I mean Harley dealer wanted $314.95 for stock Dunlop & $48,00 for the mount.
- Revzilla price matched the Avon AV72 Cobra Rear for $177.00 & local bike builder mounted for $35.00.
- With 1000 miles on the new Avon Cobra & $150 extra dollars in my pocket, I couldn't be happier !

Fantastic tires
I ride a 2008 Harley Davidson Fat Bob. I love how the Avon tires made it feel like a new machine. Some of the expressway near me are grooved and with the Avon Cobra tires I don't feel them pulling like the factory tires did. I haven't been caught in the rain so I can not rate the wet traction.

My bike has changed since I put the Avon Cobra tires on, I can take corners faster, the ride is much smoother and quieter now. (AV 71 MT90B16 74H on the Front, AV72 MT90B16 74H on the rear)
so far the tread has not shown any signs of wear but I only have 1200 Miles. I am very happy with these tires and I will get them again.

I was very impressed with Revzilla, When I ordered my tires, I had them shipped to my work (I live 60 Mi from my office). I received a phone call from Revzilla to verify that I had put down the correct address. I really appreciated that attention to detail and care for me, I will be making more purchases from Revzilla.

In my opinion this is the best cruiser/touring tire on the market
Excellent traction and handling characteristics. Great wet traction. This is the only tire I would use on a cruiser or my 2012 GoldWing .
Tread life is advertised as 15,000 mi. I ride hard and get 12-14,000 mi out of the front and about 8-10,000 mi out back

Sport bike style on my twin
Love the appearance of the tire on my Harley night train. The grip on dry ground seems very good. I expect the tire life to be moderate. I prefer performance and grip in a tire over being long lasting. I have found there is a balance to be found there. I haven't had the tire on long so I haven't yet ridden in a driving rain but on lightly wet road I had no issues.

Best tire i've ever owned......
I'm 47. I've been riding since i was 7-8 yrs old. i bought my first street bike when i was 16, and have been riding street bikes every since. Mostly GSXR'S. I've had almost every tire out there on my bikes. some i was really pleased with, and some not so much. Since I'm getting a little older, a few years ago i purchased a 2014 Harley Soft Tail Deluxe CVO Screaming Eagle. Love the bike, but the handling was not so great. i messed with the suspension, but came to the conclusion it was the tires. i've had several different tires on it since i purchased it, but still wasn't satisfied with the handling until i put the Cobras on. WOW what a difference they made!!!!! these tires made my Harley feel like i was back on my Gsxr. the handling is excelent now. Very nimble, no more tracking on the road, complete confidence in corners, scraping the floor boards not even realizing i was leaning that far over. Rain traction is equally great, once again complete confidence. They look great on my Harley with the WWW, and the tread pattern makes it look very sporty. if your looking for some tires for your bike give them a try. i think you'll have a big ole grin on your face just like i did.
