Great Tire This tire is a great tire. It has awesome traction and feels like a safe ride September 13, 2014
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. July 28, 2014
So far so good... I'll admit I let my last front tire go longer than I should have. So when it was past time I bought this tire. I have been very happy with the Pilot Road on the back and since my front tires get a good amount of life out of them I went with the softer/stickier Pilot Power for the front. I've got less than 500 miles so far but it is working great so far. July 28, 2014
Perfect progression from Pilot Power 2ct I've been riding on the Pilot Power 2ct's for several years, naturally when it came time to replace i moved onto the Pilot Power 3. Tire has been great so far, immense amount of grip all the way to the shoulders, actually feels like it has a little better profile than the older ones. Loves to turn, and the wet weather traction has been amazing also. I was caught off guard by a storm and the tire held the road perfectly, way better than my old 2ct's would do in the rain. Anyone looking for some great tires look no further, I've had Pirelli's, Conti's, and Bridgestone's and none have had the life and grip of the pilot powers. The added lean angle has always been appreciated. September 8, 2014
Pilot power 3. They are legit! Can't wait for motogp next year So I just got these tires mounted. And I must say.. Wow. They say trust your tires... And so off with the oem battlax. No offense to Bridgestone but these michelins are a world of difference. Granted that the old tires had 5k on them, but might as well go with a bit of an upgrade right? The feedback from the tires are great. I can feel the road but not the harshness of our beloved beltway. Anyways. So the grip after the break in period is great. I m already down to .25" to the edge. Get down get down get down! I m not really that aggressive when it comes to the twistys, but these tires really feel great and tame the turns. Wish I could get out on to a track. I need more left. turns. Any way. Power pilots won't disappoint. Revzilla's price and free delivery are totally worth it. If u love your bike and love to ride... The answer is obvious duh. September 3, 2014
Favorite tire i've ever run Bought the Power 3 to replace my Road 2, and I love it. Great grip, mileage so far is not as great as other harder compounds, but what else should I expect? It's a little more firm, but still inspires some extra confidence in hard turns. Overall It's a great tire. September 1, 2014
best all around sport touring tire. got 12000 miles out of the last one on my BMW R1150RT. July 14, 2014
great tyres. sticky, I like the profile, they didn't cost too much. I have these tyres on my '98 Ducati 900SS FE. I like to ride the bike fairly hard, but with that said, its always within some frame of safety. these tyros are plenty sticky for hot rodding that moto. I also have a '96 900SS SP, which is shod in Pirelli Diablo Rosso II. both great sets of tyres. From what I can tell, the most significant difference is the profile of the tyres. both are great profiles. its seems to me that maybe the Rosso IIs are a touch taller... maybe? somehow in my mind, they seem to be the choice for rougher roads. however, the Michelins seem to enjoy a little quicker rollover, which is more noticeable on very smooth twisties.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
scott m: because I bought a pilot power 3 rear Sep 22, 2014
C A: Big fan of the MPP and MPR line of tires. The MPP2CTs were amazing in the dry, but greasy in the wet. I hear this new generation is a little better in the wet. The MPR3s were amazing everywhere. Sep 21, 2014
Tyler J: Recommended by friend Sep 19, 2014
Stefanie A: Recommended by friends who ride as well. Looking for replacement for my Dunlop Q2 and asked for feedback and this was their suggestion. After looking into it, seemed to fit the bill - better center wear for daily commute, while still sticky on the sides for the curves. Wasn't going to replace the front, but figured since the front tire is about 4 years old I should probably do the set. Sep 11, 2014
Johnny D: A lot of my biker friends have recommended this to me Sep 10, 2014
Jason T: They are the best sport bike street tires on the market. Sep 2, 2014
James H: I already ride the Pilot Power 3, and simply need to replace the front. (The rear was replaced 3 months ago.) Aug 27, 2014
Scott J: Best all around tire grip ver well in San Francisco weather changes rapidly so I need something that is not just a great sport tire but on wet surfaces as ell. Aug 17, 2014
Robert V: I like that they were for street riding and some track time also. Aug 12, 2014
William B: These are really the tires recommended by my manufacturer for my Triumph Speed Triple and most other riders in the forums seem to recommend it. I ride so much that I eventually moved to the Pilot Road 3, but the tire was great. It just didn't last long enough for my riding style. Recommended for those who only put a few thousand miles on their bikes a year, or need a performance tire for their aggressive riding style! Aug 11, 2014
Dennis D: The check out system allowed me to select the exact tire size. an advantage over your competitors. Jul 20, 2014
Thomas J: Good mix of performance and mileage for a toe Jul 8, 2014
Scott R: Wanted a great handling tire for my speed triple. Jul 8, 2014
Abdulla A: Noob rider and wanted grip over longevity, these seemed to have great reviews (over a 100 of those), Revzilla staff were helpful and confirmed that these are noob friendly, and it's not like they won't last quite a long range with the dual compound. Also, the tread pattern just looks cool! Jun 26, 2014
Joseph R: Recommended by my mechanic. Jun 25, 2014
Anthony E: I'm pleased with the Pilot Powers i currently have, so why not get the newer models? Jun 9, 2014
kevin f: price Jun 5, 2014
Isaac A: reviews sound good May 29, 2014
Gary H: Michelin tires are the best all around sportbike tire for the street. They are super sticky, get good mileage, and are very stable and predictable. The Pilot Power 2CT was a great tire, but the new Pilot Power 3 is even better. Love this tire. May 28, 2014
David R: Great tire daily rider. I have had this tire almost a year and still looks new May 22, 2014
Blake J: I was looking for a high quality sport tire with good tread life for the boring parts between fun Texas back roads. The PP3 seems to fit the bill. May 19, 2014
Earle B: "I live 30 minutes from The Deals Gap "Dragon" which I ride weekly during warm weather. I have these same tires on another twisty bike and they never slip or let me down even when leaned to the limit with the throttle poured-on. I don't know about (nor care about) wet performance or wear rates. I only care about maximum dry grip on the edges. These tires deliver that on a 140 HP bike. Get some now!" May 19, 2014
Keith P: Past Experience with Michelin; Performance & Wear May 18, 2014
Timothy R: I had the pilot power 2 before. these sounded better, and they are. May 5, 2014
adam g: Dame good price for a great tier May 1, 2014
EDWIN P: highly recommended tire by fellow riders. Apr 29, 2014
D A: Wanted something more sport-oriented than my Dunlop RoadSmarts. Installed these on my 2007 Ducati S2R1000 Monster and took them straight to the North Course at VIR. Full disclosure: My first time on a track, and VIR had just been resurfaced, so I have no basis to compare for country or mountainous road riding--yet. Initial impressions were good neutral feel in the straights and confidence-inspiring at the turn in point. Took them to within 3/8-inch (rear) for chicken strips and they always felt planted. Transitioned willingly. Looking forward to trying them on some of my favorite roads in the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah area. Apr 28, 2014
Cory G: Research. Best tire for price Apr 26, 2014
DAVID W: I have run many sets of Michelin PP & Pilot Power 2CT's on my R1. I ride this bike hard on canyon roads, and track days. As I used to do a lot of Road and Dirt Racing, I tend to slide my bikes around and spin the rear out of corners. Everything that Michelin promises they deliver in the Pilot Power 3. I am VERY happy with this tire, the grip is great, they feed back well when pushing the front and sliding the rear, AND LAST LONGER ! If you Liked the PP, PP 2CT & the PP Pure you will love it. Apr 15, 2014
Israel R: Based on reviews. Apr 1, 2014
Eric Y: Did my research on this tire and have come to the conclusion that this is the best tire out!" Mar 21, 2014
Calvin A: Heard nothing but GOOD things about them my buddies are riding these and they love them... Have yet to mount them because of this horrible Wisconsin winter but soon my friends soon! Mar 15, 2014
Terrace B: Replaced my stock Bridgestones and its like day and night the difference between the two. Mar 10, 2014
Earl K: Matched reason for the rears Mar 7, 2014
Jeffrey E: Great reviews. Feb 1, 2014
James M: research and revzilla vidios Jan 25, 2014
Andrew B: The POWER2's on the rear are still a great tire but the fronts are worn out so replacing the 2's with 3's makes good sense as they may not be as good as 4's but for the price they deliver great performance and value. Jan 18, 2014
jaime h: video reviews Dec 17, 2013

russell d: Has 20% more longevity than the pilot power 2 tire plus it will be a good track day tire. Oct 16, 2013
Manuel C: hear that they were much better than the previous and they are. Love riding with them. Oct 14, 2013

Dirk K: Great traction and feels much more secure in the rain. Aug 29, 2013
Hao D: As a sportbike track rider, I wanted to ride my street bike "Versys 650" aggressively. These were a great all around choice for me. Aug 28, 2013
George P: R6 forums reccomended pilot power 2ct... pp3's are the upgraded version, at the same price! Aug 27, 2013
Ahren K: Cause its the best tire out right now! Aug 23, 2013
Duane M: These are the best tires I have ever ridden on! I got 9,000 miles out of my first set, 5,000 of which I had a passenger with me. STICKY!!!!!! Aug 22, 2013
Bartlomiej K asked: 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? Jul 17, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew B: 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 Jul 18, 2014
