Knievel Motorcycle Manufacturing Inc. (Knievel Cycles), the legendary custom motorcycle brand representing the Robert “Evel” Knievel legacy, has selected Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America (Avon Tyres) as the exclusive tire supplier for the company’s motorcycles.

Rob Myers (General Manager, Knievel Motorcycle Manufacturing) says: “Our engineering and design teams have vast experience in hand-building quality custom-production motorcycles and are well respected in the motorcycle business.

“Avon Tyre products are the perfect fit for our legendary brand. We are proud to have added Avon’s products to our Springer Bobber, Commemorative Bobber, Pro Street, Patriot Series Chopper, Commemorative Chopper, and Limited Series Snake River Canyon motorcycles.”
