Michelin Anakee 3 Adventure Touring Rear Tire

The new Michelin Anakee 3 is a road focused adventure touring tire; designed to provide exceptional on-road handling while still tolerating gravel and dirt excursions, the Anakee 3 is a perfect fit for full size adventure bikes. With easy turn in and predictable cornering habits, the Anakee 3 also displays increased tread life compared to the Anakee 2. If you spend the majority of your time on-road, the Anakee 3 is a very strong tire candidate.

Anakee 3

This is my third set of Anakee 3s all on R1200GS and GSA and each set got me over 15,000 miles. Since I live in Arizona and ride on VERY hot pavement loaded to the brim and weighing in at over 250 pounds naked (but NOBODY wants to see me naked, so I am ATGATT when aboard), it gives you some kind of idea about the abuse these tires take. They hook up great when wet, inspire confidence in the twisties, run straight and true, and perform great on forest service roads and cow trails. Just avoid MUD! Being that I do all my own mounting and balancing, the mounting process for these stiff sidewalks is quite the chore, but to be expected. However, Michelin tires are so well made that they don't even come with the typical tire "Balance Dot", and if it wasn't for my in-tire pressure monitoring system, they wouldn't require any balancing whatsoever. I dynamic balance, and once I overcome the mentioned TPMS weight, these things run down the road like a well built tire should. As for noise, who cares! Turn up your music or get a set of earplugs if it bothers you. I ride a performance motorcycle and I expect it to have its share of noise!

Anakee 3's

I ride a 2012 DL650 Vstrom and now have 65,000 miles on the bike. The Anakee 3's have been great, hot temps (103 degrees F), cold temps (10 degrees F), torrential rain, a bit of snow, dry roads, dirt roads, road snakes, the tires are stable through all of it. Going into and completing turns on these tires, they do not miss a beat. I have 16,000 miles on this set and the first is ready for replacement, I probably have 1,000 to 3,000 left on the rear. This is my tire going forward, I'm done with the 10,000 mile Metzler Tourances that get loose on hot roads and road snake!

Anakee III 15,554 miles

This is my third set Anakee IIIs, "H" rated, and I am blown away by the longevity - 15,554 miles. I ride 2006 GS1200 with 94,000 miles and fully loaded panniers, camping gear and rear seat bag plus I weigh 250 pounds. Noise on this set settled down with wear and not noticeable with good ear plugs. I replaced the front tire at 13,000 miles and just replaced the rear. Travel is highway/back roads.

Perfect

I ride a BMW R1100GS and I could not imagine a better tire. I got 11,000 miles out of the front and 13,000 miles out of the rear. Wet and dry traction are the same...confidence-inspiring. I ride the forest roads and traction is great on gravel and muddy roads. I will continue to use this tire, it is wonderful. Tires are a little noisy but not overly so.

michelin anakee 3 adventure front and rear tires

I have front and back and I am very happy with both. I have a Vstrom 1000 and the handling and braking are as good as I have had in my 55 years of riding. I am very happy with these tires.

great wear

The handling in the twisties is superb and wear is way above average. The front tire is noisy although almost 18K miles on it and the wear bar is showing.

Good tire but not quiet

Only a couple hundred miles so far so don't know about tread life. Good tire, handles great and good traction. The tread pattern is a little buzzy at certain speeds but it's a 2 wheeled jeep anyway so no big deal. Better than stock on my 2012 R1200GS.

Great Tire

Bought the front and rear tire and they arrived together in less than three days from placing my order. Had the Motorcycle Superstore Preferred Installer put the tires on my '06 V-Strom 650 and promptly did a 2,200 mile roundtrip ride to Northern Nevada without any problems. Can't see any wear so far and tires seem to deliver as promised.

Fantastic tire . . .

Great in wet or dry and on maintained gravel roads. The only place I don't have full confidence is in mud but that is to be expected. I don't have the noise issue at speed that some describe. Perhaps they should check their pressures. Two thumbs up!

Much improvement over stock tire

Improvement in handling and ride over stock tires on my Triumph Tiger 800 XC. Will have to see about tread life.

Can't beat 'em

There are other very good tires out there; it's hard to imagine that there's any much better than the Anakees. I'm mainly a street rider who does some gravel roads, the occasional cow trail, but no real technical offroad. Just took the new tires (on a BMW R1100GS) on about a 1500 trip to Big Bend area of west TX; the tires are great for traction and durability. Didn't get them wet, but my experience with the Pilot Road 3's makes me be inclined to trust them in the rain too.

Anakee III

I installed these on my 05 650 Vstrom last year. They now have over 6,000 miles on them and the wear is minimal. I ride in the rain a lot and these are great in light and heavy rain. I do get the road noise between 60 and 65 which is totally annoying. The tires handle the twisties really great as well as high speeds. These were replacements for Battle Wings and I will never go back. With the noise being the only issue, when needed I will be buying the A3's again.

Anakee 3 rear tire

The new A3's promised improved tread life over the 2's and have delivered. On a 2 I would get 10-11K max, loaded or not. So far with the 3's I have yet to replace one at less than 12K and one went over 13K. The 3's have better feel in corners. Off road they are no worse than the 2's. Over all a superior tire and worth the couple of extra bucks in the long run.

LOUD!!!

Just installed on my 1200GSA, front and rear. Spent 1 day out riding. Seem to handle very well. Done some twisties. Corner good. Extremely loud! Especially around 60 mph. Can't stand the noise. Will probably go with something different when they wear out.
