The prestigious 2019 Golden Peacock Award for the ‘Innovative Product/Service Award’ has been won by Apollo Tyres.

The firm was recognised for the development of India’s first zero degree steel belted motorcycle radial tyre, the Apollo Alpha H1.

The award was presented to Apollo’s regional head Mohammed Loubani and its chief R&D officer P K Mohamed during the 29th World Congress on Leadership for BUSINESS EXCELLENCE & held INNOVATION at the Habtoor Palace in Dubai last week.

The Golden Peacock awards were first started by India’s Institute of Directors in 1991 and recognises global achievement in business. It is considered one of the most prestigious awards businesses can win.

The Apollo Alpha-H1 is the company’s first motorcycle steel radial tyre that’s designed to meet the demands of high performance motorcycles.

The Alpha-H1 is designed for both road and track use and promises optimum grip along with improved tread life.

Apollo claims that the Alpha-H1 offers 50% more tread life than many premium tyres whilst offering similar performance levels.
