The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure.

  • Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud
  • Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip
  • Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road
  • Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling
  • Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing
  • Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears
  • Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability
  • Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch

Over 15,000 miles on a set, what?!? I put these on my 1200 GSA with dynabeads (I rarely go faster than 100 mph) for a Route 66 trip. The first 7,000 miles were heavily laden with gear and a even a passenger at times. I push the limits from time to time, enough that I should get some new pegs before I don't have anywhere to put my feet, and have only had a few instances where the tires broke free slightly under hard acceleration. I blame those times on me not the tires. I've noticed that you can get more mileage from a tire if you spend some time riding on the sides. That, and they cost a lot of money so you may as well use the whole darn thing. Front and back wore in very well together. I have just recently installed my next set and have confidence that I will get at least 10,000 miles out of this set, maybe more if I can hold off the throttle. April 14, 2014
Very good tire I did quite a bit of research before replacing the tires on the Strom. I don't go off road very much, but did want good wet weather performance. So far I am very impressed. I have probably put about 500 miles on them, and they have performed a lot better than my aged Battlewings. They do have a little bit of road noise, but nothing that a set of ear plugs (you should be wearing them anyways) can't fix. NOTE: I am estimated life time of the tire to be very high based upon reviews on various forums. April 4, 2014
Definately not for off road use, road noise from front tire. Fitted Anakee 3s front and rear to my 2012 DL650. Nice tires, but a few issues let them down: 1. Price ..... quite high compared to the competition. 2. Alot of road noise from the front tire around 40mph. 3. Front is wearing very quickly, maybe 6,000 miles total life. Rear is much better. 4. Grip is good on tar and concrete, but not good off road. Down right dangerous in some light off road situations. These are a 95:5 tire, definately not 80:20. March 31, 2014
Upgrade from the A2's. Superior Grip. The A2's were great tires, but michelin made the A3's even better. They lose in off road performance, but they have more than increased the on road performance, most notably in lean-in feel, stability at speed, and grip through tight turns. This has made my F800GS become even better as a canyon carver when out touring, and can keep up with sportier bikes without problem. The lean-in sensation that felt slightly odd in the A2 is gone in the A3, and it inspires much more confidence when falling into the corner. They are no wear close to Michelin's Power Supersport's but for what is On/Off road tire with decent off road performance, it more than excels on the road and in the twisties at speed. It handles great in the wet, and I've had no problem riding in heavy downpour with it. Very confidence inspiring and I could feel the road well. Durability - I've put 4000 miles on them, and they are still going strong, both front and back. It's lost its chops off road, but it still handles fire roads and less aggressive single track dirt roads well for a tire with this much on-road performance. I felt confident taking it on dirt roads that were not too wet. It still provided ample traction at all times. Great buy, dramatic increase in on-road performance. March 28, 2014
Not as good as the Anakee 2...a step back Loved the A2, bummed when discontinued but tried the A3 because of the "promises". Rear wears about the same at 4500 but it's squaring and never happened on the A2. I can squeeze a few more miles out of the rear. The front of the A3 is toast now. I got about 10K miles on the A2 front so this is really bad. Same tire pressures, riding conditions etc on both the A2 and A3. Pavement performance was better but nervous on tire snakes. The little bit of off roading I do on this bike #08GSA#, the A3 sucked. Going to give Metz Next a try. Mich...bring back the A2!!!! February 23, 2014
4000 miles and wearing well I installed these on my 2012 Triumph Scrambler and now after 4000 miles I can say that I am happy with my choice. The tires are great on the highway. I no longer even bat an eye at uneven pavement, they are that smooth. It's a huge improvement over the OEM tires. The tires still give good traction on gravel roads, but don't like sand and loose dirt. My biggest beef was the long scrub in time. For the first 1000 miles, I was nervous because of some rear wheel sliding, but now I have my confidence back. They really hold the pavement in a turn. I can't comment on wet traction - I live in the desert. They hardly show signs of wear, but I'll report back as I continue to log the miles. These tires are on my daily driver, so the miles add up quickly. February 22, 2014
The Anakee 3 on a Super Tenere On the various motorcycles I have had over the years when I upgraded from the factory tire to a Michelin tire it has always been a significant improvement. The Anakee 3 upgrade from the OEM Bridgestone made a great handling bike into a superb handling bike. The Yamaha for a big heavy super torque bike it gets great tire wear even on the Bridgestone’s of 7200 miles and could have gotten more. With the Anakee 3’s I am hoping to get 10 to 12 thousand miles from them. Before the Yamaha Super Tenere I had a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 that I went through two rear tires and one front tire of over 8000 miles on each rear tire of the Anakee 2’s. The Anakee 3 according to Michelin is suppose have a greater life span and I believe they will because I have a 1000 miles on the 3’s now still looking new. I have maybe 50 miles on dirt and fire roads and the tires and bike have worked better than expected so far never a white knuckle moment. Cornering on pavement I have had no slippage and looking at the rear tire you can see I have used the entire tire from one edge to the other. On concrete the tire does sing from 45 mph to 60 mph over 60 mph the wind noise takes over and I can’t hear them. Even this is only noticeable when I forgot to wear my ear plugs. All and all the Anakee 3 is a great tire and an improvement over another great tire the Anakee 2. January 6, 2014
Great but loud I ride a triumph tiger 800 roadie. This is the third set of tires I have had on this bike and my favorite so far. I was surprised that the tread pattern did so well in gravel. So far has done well in all conditions. My only complaint is they are LOUD. By far the loudest tire I have had on any motorcycle I have owned. They also corner better than any of the Dual Sport tires I have had, worth the trade off for the noise for me. December 27, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Curtis H: I ran a set of Anakee III summer 2013 including a trip to Dead Horse Alaska. 12,000 miles and there is still thread left. The Anakee III stick to pavement like sport tires and are pretty good in mud. Anakee III are the best large dual sport tires I have ran. Apr 14, 2014
Philip S: I need a rear tire sized 140/80-17 for an old BMW K100RS and prefer a radial tire. The Anakee is only one of two radial rear tires in that size, the other is an Avon Azaro that is very expensive and no better a tire than a Michelin. Apr 11, 2014
Mike H: Based on feedback on Stromtroopers, the Michelin Anakee 3 tire was the way to go for my Vstrom DL650. I've put several thousand on these (rain or shine) and love them. Mar 20, 2014
Mark R: Have run Michelin tires on my GS for several years. Good wear and excellent performance. Mar 9, 2014
James H: I read some good reviews on the tires and after running them for several months now I am glad that I purchased them. The handle really well but they do have a little bit of a hum on the road. Feb 27, 2014
Onezean O: Well recommended by V-Strom owners Feb 26, 2014
T O: This will be my second set of Anakee 3 tires on my 2010 BMW R1200 GSA. Great handling, long wear tires. Feb 25, 2014
Michael M: I went through two sets of the Anakee 2's on my V-Strom 1000 and loved them, bought a used Super Tenere that needed tires and it was automatic to put the knew Anakee 3's on it. At this point I have 1200 miles on the tires and as much as I liked the Anakee 2's the 3's are better. I have about 70 miles on dry dirt and gravel roads and the motorcycle is solid as a rock. Wet or super sandy roads I will tip toe until I find out what they can do. Jan 29, 2014
John B: All the talk about the new Anakee 3 got me excited. I needed all-weather, all-year riding tires. I thought these would handle the weather, be long wearing, and be good on the gravel and hard pan roads that make up a small part of my commute. Turns out it's been great for starters, but now that I've got a ton of miles (and still have good tread depth) they are noisy, wore uneven, and make vibrations and noise at low speed. Not the "one tire to rule them all" I was hoping for. Jan 7, 2014
marc r: good reviews on adv website Jan 4, 2014
David M: Michelin fame and wanted to try something new Dec 13, 2013
Martin B: It´s a new product and I liked to try it. Actually I works perfect and just can recommend it. Runs a little bit loud but very good in the wet. and dry. Dec 9, 2013
Kurt S: This tire has the highest ratings and regards for large adv touring bikes like the tiger 800xc. It also is reviewed to last 8000 - 10000 miles. The minor negative review of a hum from the tire does not bother me. It also accepts a tube which I need on my tiger 800 xc. Finally the characteristics of good street (wet or dry) handling combined with the ability to handle dirt and gravel moderately well covers all the terrain I see in my daily riding. All these conditions made this tire 'the' tire. Oct 6, 2013
fred b: i bought this rear tire for my dr650. i use it for commuting and drive aggressively and usually go through rear tires at 4000 miles. this rear tire lasted about 6000 miles and sticks like glue in the rain. tires never cupped and handle very good. the front tire still looks almost new and will probably last for 18000 miles. highly recommend. Sep 21, 2013
George R: highly rated........ Sep 18, 2013
Clark S: price was right. order process was easy. product reviews were helpful. Aug 30, 2013
Gilbert F: I like the pilot road 3 and wanted to try the pilot road 3 trail but it is not offered in the rear tire size that I need so this is a second choice. We ride pavement only and this appears to be something to try after 4 sets of battle wings. Aug 28, 2013
Thomas G: Replacing existing Anakee 3 with 8500 miles. Excellent tire. Great grip in all conditions. Aug 19, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Daniel F: I do not know what the "TT 64S" means but I have been meaning to contact you as I am not happy with the wear patter on this tire at all. With only about 2K miles on these tires the front is wearing very funny. What should I do about this?


Oct 30, 2013
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
George V: The 120/90-17 is a rear tyre which requires a tube. The load rating of 64 means the tyre is rated to handle a maximum weight of 280kg. The speed rating of ?S? means the tyre is rated to a maximum speed of 112mph/180kph.

@Paul M - TT=tube type, TL=tubeless.

sean e: I would agree with Stromtrooper. I have these on my GS, great highway tire, no complaints on packed dirt. It will get squirrely on loose gravel turns. Not a real big deal, just be aware of your speed and position if hitting a turn on gravel with these tires. Straightaways no big deal Nov 19, 2013

MrBluesky: You will not be dissapointed. It is a more road oriented tire suitable for communiting for sure but can handle trails comfortably especially on a KLR 650. Ride a 650 GS myself and put 7000 kms on it in the past 3 weeks. Good luck with your choice! May 2, 2013

Stromtrooper: I would say that they would be a great commuter tire for you as far as fire roads I would think it would need to be a well tight packed road. Don't think it would be real good on the loose gravel. May 2, 2013

A shopper asked: What is the difference in the V, H, & S May 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Streven M.: These are speed ratings on the tires. H= 130mph, V= 149mph, S=112mph. Usually higher speed is a stickier tire that handles better, but does not last as long as a lower speed tire. Exceeding speed rating can cause tires to de-laminate.. which really sucks on a vehicle with only 2 tires. May 29, 2013
Reply to Streven M. Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Anthony T: Sorry if this is a dumb question, but is there any issue if I wanted the stickiness of an H rated tire, even though I don't ride faster than an S. Is longevity the only factor? Is there much difference using an H in the 80?100mph range? My main issue is that I ride in the rain a lot and like the piece of mind having a tire that grips well. I've run Anakee's most of the life of my DR650, but usually only S tires. Thanks! Jan 31, 2014
