My favorite tire
I ride a 2012 FZ8. I commute mostly, with the odd spirited joyride or 800+ mile round-trip trip. I ride rain or shine, all seasons, and I have gone through 3 tire sets so far. I don't drag any knees on the street (just pegs), don't do trackdays, and I don't abuse the speed limit too badly, most days. 70% highway, 5% city 25% backroad riding.

Bike came with a bridgestone sport touring tire, not sure which. I wore those to the cords in under 6,000 miles. Average tire. Wore out quickly, lost neutrality very quickly, squared off quickly, slippery when wet (heh).

Next tires were the S20. Better, but not right for my style of riding, half done and squared off slightly in 2000 miles. I didn't wear those out, just 2000 miles and a bolt ended my relationship with the rear, the front was thrown away after that.

Last set (and current set) were these, Pilot Power 3's. There may be a better tire, there may be a longer wearing tire, there may be a [insert trait here] tire, but I don't care, I love this tire.

LONGEVITY: I got over 12,300 miles from my last set before the front and rear were down to the wear bars, not slicks, not cords, just wear bars. AWESOME. Probably could have pushed another thousand or more until slicks if I had to. They wear evenly too, at least for me and my bike and riding style. Front and rear were wearing evenly, not like my other tires were I could have gone through 2 rear tires for every 1 front. The dramatic "new round tire" feeling was not as great when I swapped these out for new sets of PP3's, probably because they didn't wear badly and square off as much as the other tires i've had.

GRIP: I love the grip from first day to last. Rain or shine. Very confident tire, never pushed it crazy hard, but also never lost grip except for the odd sand or gravel patch where it got a little squirmy. I also ride 1 mile of dirt/gravel to my house where the road ends every day, and even with crazy sport bike on dirt speeds I feel pretty confident. When leaned over very stable, even in wet. When practicing wheelies very stable, when being a hooligan on the freeway very stable, I love this tire.

COST: I don't even care. But they are cheap.

So far so good
Tire feels great after 700 miles of commuting and spirited weekend rides. Can't comment too much on tread life and wet traction but will update the review after I put more miles on the tire.

Confidence inspiring.
I have put over 600 miles on my new PP3s and could not be more satisfied. Our weather this early spring in the Pacific Northwest has been cool and often dry. While I still have not had the opportunity to ride at a temperature over 60 degrees, I am extremely happy with the traction in both wet and dry conditions. Obviously the tires will provide more traction when the pavement gets hot, but the confidence they give me while playing aggressively (in the twisties) in colder weather is nothing short of spectacular. The Revzilla Team had my tires at my door a day early. Outstanding. Buy with confidence.

Great tires for sports use
have not had them for too long so cannot comment on thread life... to be honest that is not a concern for me when it comes to motorcycle tires... my priority is grip in all conditions and this tire has great grip and feel

Better grip is an understatement
I was running Battle Axes before putting PP3s on both front and rear and what a difference (2010 Ninja 650R). You can feel an immediate improvement in cornering. The softer shoulders on the tires make you one with the pavement. Although I try to avoid riding in wet conditions, just got caught out in the rain the other day and the tires held their grip like it was completely dry. I can't speak to whether these are the best option out there, but I certainly don't have anything bad to say about them. 10/10 would buy again. Have nearly 1,000 miles on them already and there is no discoloration. Also, the little rubber nubs on new tires are mostly still there, even in the middle of the tread which speaks volumes to the quality of rubber on these things.

I love these tires
This is the second set of Michelin Pilot Power 3 that I purchased from Revzilla. I love the tires on my R1. Great traction and can hit corners with confidence. I got about 7,000 miles out of mine.

The Pilot Power 3 last about 4000 miles per set. I do like the Dunlop Q3 but only get 3000 miles. I like the Q3's better. I just wished it lasted like the Power 3's.

SpiffyDuckie on Apr 6, 2016
The Pilot Power 3 tires offer great grip, and have not let me down on my little Suzuki. While it certainly is not the most expensive tire out there, the PP3 is definitely worth every penny, and it gives me the confidence to dive into the corners out in the canyons.

very good tire with decent tread life but moved to the corsa for more side grip and less tread life.
Lev K on Jun 19, 2015
I was told they are the next closest tire to the Q3 but with longer life span for straight commuting. I never felt more comfortable on the Tail then I did with the Q2 and the Q3s are suppose to be even better. So here is to hoping the PP3 can stand up.

how is this on a Kawasaki Ninja 1000? thanks..
Ayman H on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have a Gsxr 600 and these tires are great. I ride quite a bit in spring and summer and they have no problem holding up for the season. I've been rocking the front and backs for years.
I have an 07 zx6 it recommends a 120/65/17. I would like to get pilot power 3. Should I get the 60 or 70 since they don't have a 65?
Bartlomiej K on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'd go with the 70 as it will give you better stability and still good turn in. I used to run 60s on my Aprilia RSVR but it made the bike twitchy so you had to stay on top of things (Smaller diameter will act like increased head angle). If you're mostly ontrack or on twisty roads then the 60 will make left right transitions quicker. my 2cents. Cheers, Andrew
A shopper on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No just the tire.

I would like to inquire about the year of manufacturing of this item. As for example made on 58th week of which year?

Thank you.
A shopper on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe you are confusing the tire types. The 55W & 58W notated on these are Load Rating / Speed Rating... Not manufacturing date..

In case of the "55W", the load capacity is 481lb/218kg & "58W" is 520lbs / 236 kg. The speed rating for both tires is 168MPH/270KMH since they are both "W". Keep in mind these figures are for tires kept at proper conditions, wear, pressure etc etc...

Hope this helps!
I have a 2012 Ninja 650r and need new tires. The spec for the OEM tires are Front 120/70-17 Rear 160/60-17. Is there a benefit to getting larger replacement tires or should i stick with the spec size?
Melvin D on Dec 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Stick with your spec size. They give you that size for a reason and they probably made the bike according it so you should stick to it. People might say you get more grip with the tires but it doesnt really matter cause ur bike can only output a certain amount of power and engineers design the spec of the tires to use up every percentage of that power.
Hi, I have a Suzuki GSX650F, I do not go to track, just normal riding (city, highway). I was wondering if it is a safe and smart idea to put Michelin Pilot Power 3 in the front wheel and the Michelin Pilot Road 4 in the rear wheel? I know they have different compounds, so maybe it is better to keep both the same type of tires in the front and the back. Any ideas would be appreciated, thank you.
Krzysztof B on Nov 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yep, it will work just fine. They are similar tires. The Road 4 will wear well. My Road 3 barely shows any wear after 2 years.
These are my first new street bike tires. How should I break them in so that I don't low side the first time I hit the twisties?
