Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
this tire replaced a pilot 2 and I currently have a pilot 3 on the front so it was a no brainer to catch up with the rear replacement. I like these tires and will continue to use them in the future.

great sport bike tire
This is a great sport bike tire. It is my second one. Last time I replaced both front and back but this time only needed to replace the rear. I have had other michelins before this including pilot power and pilot power 2ct. I got a little more than 3,000 miles on my last rear with hard street riding. Not as much as the 2cts ( more sport touring) I have had but a lot stickier and worth the trade off for a true sport bike.

So far so good
Getting close to 700 miles and I like them so far. I ride street commuting to work and spirited rides on the weekend but they feel planted going into turns. Haven't gotten caught in the rain so can't comment on that yet. Will update the review when I've put more miles on them about the tread life but so far so good.

The Previous owner had the Michelin Pilot Road 2 on the bike, used them until they wore out. Upgraded to the Michelin Pilot Power 3, absolutely love the tire. Huge riding difference. Great grip in both wet and dry conditions, definite noticable improvement in handling with this tires. Highly recommend them.

not commuter friendly
this tire might be great for the twisties but...
unfortunately i do not live by a lot of bends and turns i used this tire to mostly commute to work and back on the highway, the tire feels good in the turns i do take however the tire did not last as long as i had hoped
today i ordered a new back tire after about 4900 miles mostly spent around 80mph i am into the low tread tab and then some, by the time my new tire gets here i will have about 5300 miles on the tire and it will be completely shot
after my experience commuting on this tire and my research into a new tire both online and at the dealership i use i have set my eyes on the pilot road 4 which is a better tire all around even at a higher price, i myself ordered the gt since i am heavier and i ride with my wife on the back sometimes
i ride a 2011 r1

I used to run with q2 then q3 and then moved to 2ct then the pp3.. and I can say they are a bit more pricy than the q3's but if you want a step up from the q3 these are really great tires. the dunlops are a bit rounder than the pp3 and you have to fight the q3's a bit compared to these tires although the q3 does have a longer life than these tires! so to summarize it if you want great life and great grip get the q3 and can't beat that price if you have extra mola! they get the pp3 it does have a shorter life but better grip and bit more pricy.

Mostly used on the street and some track
I am a pretty aggressive rider on the weekends and commute daily to work. Around 50 miles a day, these tires are great, very sticky, very predictable. Been very very happy with them.
