    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

    I've tried them all 2010 speed triple

    Like it says I have tried them all. This is the 1st tire that literally after the first ride has never had any impact on my cornering confidence. Heat up time is very minimal. Go easy scrubbing them in. I have had them hot enough to ball the edges and what amazed me the most is the amount of feel and feedback still in the tires at that temp.

    Best tire I've ever used

    These are the absolute best tires I've ever used on a bike, last year I upgraded to the pilot power 3's and I'm really disappointed with them. I will go back to using these, you don't get the best mileage out of the tire, but these are the stickiest tires I've ever used. I had no problems doing 70 miles an hour on the highway in the rain with them.

    These tires are amazing. Went from Dunlop's to Michelin's on my 01 CBR929 and the difference was unreal. Felt like I was riding a whole different bike. Fast, stable, and insanely grippy at ridiculous lean angles. The best, and I've tried many. Buy these.

    Awesome tire

    Put these on my 2002 R1. Great tire. I'm not an experienced rider, but my experience level is increasing. With a fear of low siding a street bike, I'm using the entire width of the tread in the corners. I have had the rear break loose on me one time and the bike got a little squirelly, but that was one time. Other times, it grabs and lifts the front end effortlessly. So far, great tire. I'll put this tire on again when these wear out.

    Bought a new front and rear Michelin Pilot for my Kawasaki ZX14 - it was like driving a new and different bike! Excellent handling and feel. I would recommend this tire to anyone wanting to improve their riding experience.

    Great tire.

    I love this tire. Since the day I bought the bike Ive never had any other tire, never will. The tread life leaves a bit to be desired though. Go through one every season. But since my wife will be riding the sport bike Im sure she wont drive like me. At least I hope. Motorcycle Superstore has the lowest pricing and the fastest shipping.

    Hitting a corner a little too hard, leaning way over scraping my peg and fairing on my 02 yamaha FZ1. Coming out of the turn, picked itself up and we kept on going. A nice tire.

    Great sport tire

    This is a tried and trued sport bike tire. Great cost option versus the 2CT version if you know youre not gonna lean the last 10-20mm of the "chicken strip". I was able to get roughly 3-4k miles of daily commuting and weekend twisties out of mine. I daily commuted in rain with confidence. My bike is a 2007 ZX6R.

    Great tire for the Money. Hold the road very well especially in wet weather. Ive been riding for 30 yrs and over 500,000 mile traveled, they are the best tire I've ridden on so far. Highly recommend them!

    This is my third set of Michelin Pilot Powers. That's how well they work for me. My riding is a mix of commuting and weekend riding. The bike handles well in all the conditions I've encountered.

    These tires are great!

    I bought a complete set, front and back, this season. I am a novice rider, and these are my first set of brand new tires. I have to say, the initial reaction just touching the surface of these tires was "these are going to stick so well!" They do not take very long to warm up, nor do they leave you feeling uneasy. Relatively short break in period. I immediately went into my turns (everyday riding, slight aggressive street) with much more confidence, even across wet surfaces. Fantastic tires!

    The tire felt strange at first but held the road beautifully. Dry traction is awesome while I really don't see wet weather effects here in Abu Dhabi. Stability is high but there is a slight, but noticeable feel while transition in hard curves although very manageable. Overall a great tire for the money.
