A unique, race bred tread design allows for outstanding wet grip and cornering confidence during the entire life of the tire.
    • Features a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders and a wear-resistant compound down the middle
    • Made of environmentally sound 100% non-aromatic oil rubber compounds
    • Longest lasting combination of wet grip and mileage
    Model Specific Fitments:
    • 180/55ZR-17 B = BMW K1200GT & R1200RT; Yamaha FJR1300

    Great Tire

    This is my second set of Pilot Road 2's and I really like the stability and wear of the tire. I thought about going to the Road 3, but I felt the last set was perfect so why ruin a good thing.

    At 13500 miles, its just about done

    Two seasons and 13,500 miles and I've just hit the wear bars. I'll be getting the improved PR3's to replace it. But I've been more than happy with how this tire runs. Not sure what to make of the reports of folks only getting 5K miles on these. Aint no chicken strips on my tires, so I don't baby them. Perhaps it's because of the nice smooth roads we have here on the west coast.

    Good Value for the $

    This tire has given me long life (15K) on the rear of a C14. It's time for another. Handling does degrade towards the end of tread life. Still a good value for the money. The new PR2 needed no balance weights. Delivery took two days after order arriving before I could tell the wife. Er, good job Motorcycle Superstore.

    Great tire super shipping

    This will be my second PR2 on the rear my 09 Concours 1400. The first one lasted for 15,000 miles on a heavy but powerful machine. After dumping the OEM tires, it did not matter if I was solo or two up and loaded down. These tires made a huge difference in handling capabilities of the bike. Confidence building in the turns became the norm. Shipping is unbelievably fast. I ordered on Monday and they arrived on Wednesday. Not even enough time for me to warn the bride I used the Credit Card.

    Tire didn't last long

    I have a 05 BMW RT 1200. I got 6,000 miles on the back and front tire and they are now junk. Will not buy these tires again.

    The Best All Around Tire

    This is my third rear Pilot Road 2s. I never consider buying any other tire. Great all around tire for my SV 650. I commute 30 miles one way to work so durability and longevity are important but this tire also has great cornering. I can't say enough about the Pilot Road 2.

    Perfect Tire

    I switched to this tire from a Bridgestone and couldn't be more happy. I was able to honestly give it 5 stars in every category because I was able to test it in every one. It is very, very grippy. It inspired a lot of confidence and handled perfectly. My wife and I were on a mountain ride when it started to downpour on us. I never felt it slip, get squirrely or anything. Perfect wet traction. The tread life is really good as well. I commute down the interstate quite a bit with a loaded top case on the FZ1, and take it for spirited twisty rides on the weekend and I am just about to hit the wear bars at 7k miles. Not bad. Will be buying it again.

    Best tire so far!

    I have 12,000 miles on my current set of these and they will probably go to 14 or 15K. I have them on a Honda CBR600. The wet weather grip is great too (I commute in the Seattle area). They have been wearing evenly too, bought another set.

    Pilot Road 2 Tires

    Great tire! First time using. Coupled this with the 2CT on the front since I do long rides out of state and wanted something that wore a bit longer. So far very satisfied!

    excellent

    Have 10,000 miles on them and they are still good for more. A+ (I do no burn outs just regular riding to work, school etc).

    so far so good.

    I was actually after some Pilot powers but they don't make the size I need for my old GSXR restoration project, so I got these. So far, not a bad tire. The only down side, there's no red dot or mark to define the heavy spot of the tire, so if you mount your own tire, makes balancing a bit more (minimal) of a chore. But that's not a big deal.

    I do not know what other riders are doing with these Pilot Road 2. Last set I got 12,000 miles on the rear and 10,000 miles on front. I ride a ZRX, brake hard and ride hard. No burnouts.

    Great Tires!!

    Put a set of these on front and back July this year. Have been the best tires I have used since I've been riding! Once in a while when it's cold I can feel the front tire squirm when cornering hard. Great wet and dry traction and after 3500 miles they look to have plenty of life left. Can't go wrong get a pair of these today! Also, if you're military you get 5% off just talk to customer service, which is awesome here.

    Michelin PR2 Rear: Unbelievable Mileage!

    By far, the best-wearing tire I have found yet for my FJR 1300. 10,009 miles! I admit, by the time I got home from my trip down Skyline Dr. and the Blue Ridge Pkwy. this tire was COOKED! But it got me home...and I'll never buy another brand of tire for my motorcycle as long as they sell these PR2's. I have tried many types previously, and never got more than 6000 miles. My PR2 front has over 12,000 now and has plenty of tread left!
