Michelin tires on some 2018's

I was looking at a 2018 dyna softail (or whatever they call it now). And the first thing I noticed was how wide the rear tire was. It's a 180/70/16. Then I noticed it was a Michelin. I know the touring bikes have been Dunlops for many years. But I have not paid much attention to the other bikes. Is this something new? Or have they been using Michelin before?

2001 FLHR-Traded. 2010 FLTRX-Sold.

The Michelin's on my XG750 do say Harley on them.
I wonder if they could have found something a little bigger to put on the front and rear of the 2018 FatBoy.

They've used Michelin on Dyna's and Sporty's in the past. I know one tire for the Sporty was the Mich Scorcher. There are Michelin tires in the HD Parts and Acc catalog and have been for a while.
