Michelin Pilot Road 2 Front Tires

  • The ideal balance Independent tests confirm the Pilot Road 2 offers better wet grip and longer tread life than any of its competitors.
  • How did Michelin incorporate these two contradictory traits in one tire? MotoGP-derived 2CT technology makes it possible, using two distinct rubber compounds to achieve what was once thought impossible
  • Innovative front and rear tread designs

Best tires for Sports Touring period!
I have over 9k on these tires on my ZX-14, and absolutely love the wear life on these tires. Wouldn't recommend them for tight or riding hot into corners because my bike is pretty heavy, but overall performance is absolutely fantastic. Now that I see the tire is getting close to changing, performance has dropped dramatically so I will replace them with another set of the same. I recommend these tires as a must have for touring!

PROS: Longest wearing tires, Absolutely great wet grip

CONS: Not for hot twisties

great life, avg grip
got about 9000 miles out of them. average grip, average feel for the road. not recommended for aggressive or twisty street riding. ok for straight commuting. not bad in the wet if riding mellow. otherwise, i highly recommend the power pilot 2ct, which i got 6000 miles out of. far grippier and better feel. very good in the rain. better still are the bt-016's, on all counts.

Best Tour&Twisty Tire
BMW R1200RT - I have over 4k on my tires and have been very satisfied with them. They stick very well, I ride them hard in the canyons and they handle great. On the super-slab they are comfortable and wear better than any other tire I have used. Will purchase them again!

Best bike tire ever
After trying a few others including Dunlops,Metzlers,Bridgestones I am hooked. I'm on my third set and won't buy anything else. Best bang for the buck compromise tire out there. Excellent wet or dry traction that never diminishes with wear. Dual compound increases mileage up to double of others with no sacrifice in grip.

PROS: Mileage, Grip, Maximum wet traction, Availability

CONS: PRICEY if not on sale

BEST USES: Sport riding, Sport Touring

You get what you pay for...
08'Kawasaki Concours14 Got 13,500 smiles on the the rear. The front is still good to go. Drop in great. Hold pressure for around two weeks @ 42PSI.
Do around 60% straight rides. 10% over 100mph, 40% mountainroads, 5% over 80mph turns.
No burnouts!
Smooth ride! Sticky!
Rear needs to be replaced! Will go with these again.

Amazing grip
I am using these tires on 07 FJR1300. Just mounted a second set. First set lasted a bit over 12K, which is unussual for motorcycle tires. They still had thread left maybe for another 1K, but grip level was really compromised at this point.

They provide excelent grip on dry as well as wet surface. Neutral streeing. Turns require very little input from the rider and once leaned they hold desired angle with out any fuss.

My new favorite tires!
By the far the best tires I've ever had. End up getting 10k miles out of them, and that's after thoroughly abusing these tires (had a nice run through Nevada on Lonely 50). These tires have mostly seen fully-loaded interstate travel and they didn't really start squaring off until about 8k miles.

These tires have gripped consistently throughout their entire lives, from 0 miles to 10k miles. I've been in twistys fully loaded with saddlebags and top trunk, and the tires never own hiccupped or lost grip (except for dirt patches and random pieces of gravel). In fact, I've never had the bike leaned over so far before until I got these tires (except for the time I took the VFR to the track with racing tires spooned on). I've got scratches in my saddlebags from leaning over too far with the Road 2s.

Wet grip is also pretty good, not great but descent. The redeeming quality of the tires in the wet is how consistent the tires behave. I had no trouble *sliding* the bike through a few miles of green, slimy corners since the tires were consistent in how they slide and gripped.

*Just because I've dragged my saddlebag is corners and on occasion two-wheel drifted my bike in the rain with the Michelin Road 2 doesn't mean you'll miraculously be able to do so if you get these tires. Attempting to do so puts you beyond your own limits and abilities, which usually mean you're probably going to be crashing soon. Know your limits and ride within them. With that said, the Road 2s are awesome!

PROS: Excellent Dry Grip, Good Wet Grip, Excellent wear
