Michelin Pilot Power Rear Tire

Choosing the right tires for your sportbike is the ultimate chess game; you typically win a little there and lose a little here.

  • Rubber mix remains tacky even at low temperatures
  • Grooved area is less than 12% of tire area for phenomenal cornering adhesion
  • W-rated for speeds up to 168 mph
  • Michelin Recommended Use: 95% Street Riding / 5% Track Days

Michelin Pilot Power

The best tires I've ever had. I took them to the track the next day and I was amazed about the traction, grip and handeling. They taught me how to ride my bike faster...

Amazing quality product. Superior grip capabilities compared to metzlers, bridgies, and dunlops. The tires warm almost immediately to give you a great ride practically right out of the driveway. This is my 2nd set of Pilot Powers and now I'm a dedicated Michelin user!

These tires have changed everything about how my bike handles in a positive way. They stick like Velcro to the road. They have a soft compliant feel and work beautifully on my K1200R. You will not be disappointed.

These tires work great. I upgraded from the Dunlops. They warm up fast. They stick to the road exceptionally well, and also wear very well.

Great Tire, Great Price, Good Delivery

The Pilot Power rear tire has plenty of grip, heats up fairly quick, good feedback, turn in quick, and came with the best price I could find! I've been running Bridgestone BT010's and some Pilot Roads, both of which I like... the Pilot Power seems to have better grip and turn in like mad!

This tire really makes the R1 handle like it should!! One of the best tires that I have used on the R1. Far surpass the stock tires. Before it was hard to keep the back tire from breaking lose and spinning like crazy. Now I can really hold the corners and keep the back end behind me. They should be the stock tires for all bikes. Might save alot of low sides. Take note: Dealers use some thing good on your leader bikes.

I purchased Pilot power set for my bandit1200. Great grip and feel. I have less rear wheel spin because the tires really hook up.

Pilot Powers on Ninja ZX-500R

Tires look great on the Ninja 500R. Way better than the Excedrins (excedras) that came stock. I just put them on myself, front tire balanced perfect with no weight and the rear took minimal, always recommend Michelins for everything, have yet to ride cause the bikes in its bubble but I’m sure they will be multiple times better in every respect.

Tires look awesome and grip very well. The stock Bridgestones on my CBR were very ugly looking and slipped quite often under hard acceleration. I think my new Power Pilots even saved me from crashing a few times because of their improved grip.

Good grip

I use this tire for a SuperMoto where traction is a must. The tire heats up quick, maintains that heat and has great grip. The tire is the softest rubber out there, perfect for the track & anyone who is constantly leaning to the edge. I totally Recommend it... just buy two since they wont last too long if you ride like me!!!

Love this tire. The Dunlop I have always used in the past can not handle the low end torque of my Buell X1 but it made for some cool power slides out of turns. I tried to power slide the other day on the pilot and came out of the corner on one wheel. I thought that was cool because I have tried to do that before on the Dunlop and could not at that angle. This is the perfect tire for those who like to do wheel stands front and rear.

The Best

Lasts longer than dun-flops and hold better heat up better and stay sticky. This is what I use on my 04 RC51, I can get the front tire up before i'm out of the turn and i can drag my knee with this tire without any loss of confidence. I even drag raced at the end of it's life and it stuck to the track getting me a 11.66 1/4 mile @ 121.01 mph. I used to use dunlops and now i will never go back!
