Best Tire on the Market

I ride 150 to 200 miles a day on So Cal highways I have put 45k on my 2008 CBR 600rr and I have ran every tire on the Market and I am on My 3rd set! I am getting about 10 to 12k out of them!! They handle awesome in the rain, sunny day, and are exceptional on the track! If you are an everyday rider, like myself, these tires are the best! May be a little higher in cost, but they will outlast the rest!!!!

Pilot Road 2 Tires

Absolutely excellent tire for my 2005 CBR 1000. Great cornering, and traction wet or dry is superb. Hoping to get over 10K miles out of the set since I commute daily to work mostly free-way and highway riding. I would recommend this tire for anyone with sport bike that wants a good long lasting tire.

Great Tires

I have had these tires on for a while now. I was pleasantly surprised to find that when I got them and mounted them, there was no real "break-in" time. I was afraid to lean a bit at first on them due to what I had read about tires being slick for the first 50 miles or so, but these tires did not have that problem. I was able to take right off on the tires and have no worries. As far as the grip, they are amazing. I have been able to take the wear all the way to the very edge of the tire, and even when I was worried they would give out, they gripped like they were glued to the road. The wear on them is remarkably even all the way around, despite the fact that much of my riding is highway. Also, the tread life is AMAZING. If I could give it 6 stars, I certainly would. I have around 4k miles on these tires as of now, and they barely look worn. I am EASILY expecting another 6k-8k miles from them. Though the price is a bit high, I feel the tires are certainly worth it. You can buy one set of these, or buy 2 sets of the Pilot Powers for about the same mileage. Bike: 2003 Yamaha R6

Good wear. Appreciate the fact that the grooves go completely across the rear.

love them

They’re awesome I love those tires previously had metzelers sportec m3 and metzelers roadtec z6 interact, the sportec had great grip but did not last long and the roadtec z6 did not have good grip. The pillot road 2 has the best of both worlds

Great Tire

I now have a little over 6k on a set of these tires. I replaced the OEM tires on my 09 Concours 14 using others recommendations. I found I had to learn how to ride the bike all over again as these tires stick and track well in corners. I live in an area where the twisties are only a few minutes away and love these tires. I would expect to get at least another 4k without working at it on this set of tires. I did notice the front tire is starting to cup a little but the C-14 is a fast heavy bike which at times is loaded down with full bags and a passenger.

GREAT TIRE

I love this grip! I will never let my tire get as bad as the pirelli scorpion sync got on my ktm 950 sm.4200 miles and it wore more on one side of center for some reason. I just bought the pilot power for the front because it is softer and should wear out at the same time or close to the rear .I use a lot of front brake! mannerpants

Michelin 2ct 180/55-Z17

Just purchased my second set of Michelin Pilot Road 2, 120/70-17 and 180/55-17. Have not yet had a chance to mount the new tires on my 08 BMW R1200RT. The old set of Michelins are only showing 50% wear after 10,000 miles across country. I now have 18,000 mile on the bike, I wore out 2 sets of other brand tires before I reached the 9000 mile mark. I am 73 years old and hope to wear out several more sets. I do not impede the flow of traffic, rain or shine.

Michelin Pilot Road II

I have been running these tires for about a year and a half on my 2006 Buell Ulysses. Prior tires on this and a City-X before it have been the Dunlop D616 and the Pirelli Scorpion Sync. The D616 was a more adequate off road tire, but lacked a bit on the highways where I spend 95+ % of my riding. The Sync was better on road than the D616 and quite a bit better rain tire on the highway, but has a noticeably thinner carcass that tends to puncture easier. The Road II is less off road oriented, only doable if completely dry conditions are had. On the twisty back roads of Tennessee they are amazing, they turn in easier, are more confidence inspiring, track extremely well, work well in wet and last much longer on trips down the super slabs. I got 6,000 miles of use out of the rear D616s and Syncs. The first Pilot Road II rear went 11,000 miles! I got 9,000 miles on the second Road II when a rock impacted it at an angle that only bad luck could have presented. Now on my third rear Pilot Road II I am quite pleased with the best tire I have ever had on any of the bikes I have had over the past thirty two years of riding.

on a 2004 BMW R1150RT

Replaced a well worn set of Metzeler Roadtec Z6's that came with the bike. The Metzeler's tended to fall into corners. These tires completely eliminated that issue and are very neutral. Haven't had them long, so can't really rate wet traction or tread life. Just filled in required values based on other's experiences.

Michelin - Pilot Road 2 Rear Tire

For a bike with massive amounts of torque and weight as that of a Busa these tires are ideal. They hold up for mileage and traction.

Nice Tires

Best tires I have ever ridden on and I have been riding for 36 years. Just got them and don't know about tread life yet but expect it to be good as well.

Great long lasting tire

I am impressed with the tread life of these PR2 tires. I started using these on my Moto Guzzi Norge after the original tires, Metzeler Roadtec Z6s wore out after about 9,000 miles. The Z6 is a good, long lasting tire but there is no way of knowing for sure when they are fully worn until all of a sudden you see the steel belts appearing. Not a good feeling if you are on a road trip far from home. I have over 10,000 miles on my first rear PR2 and the tire still looks good and has many more miles to go before needing to be replaced. I have no complaints so far and just ordered a new PR2 rear just to have on hand when current one is done.

Pilot Road 2 Rear Tire

This tire looks good, corners great, has very good dry and wet traction. The front and back seem to be wearing very slow so far after 500 miles, we'll see after a few thousand. I road a few country roads to get the tires scuffed up a bit after installing. Fantastic price from Motorcycle Superstore as well as extremely quick shipping.

PR2 rear tire

My BMW R1200RT eats rear tires. I replaced a Michelin Power Pilot after 6000 miles with the Power Road 2. After about 1200 miles the PR2 still looks new, the Power Pilots were already squaring off by then. Grip and stability is as good as any tire I've used and it looks like I'll get a lot more miles. Can't wait for the front tire to wear out so I can replace it with a PR2.
