Michelin Pilot Power 3 Rear Tires
Very good tires.
Have almost made it through a full season with these tires mounted to my Concours. My SV1000 also has these tires, but doesn't quite get the same road time as my big bike.. Absolutely not complaints about the tires on either bike Would buy these again from Revzilla in a heartbeat.

Track day review
I have pp3's for my street r1, so I got some for my track only r6. In the lower to intermediate groups this tire is amazing, it heats up extremely quick and grips to the track. Anything into the higher intermediate group you start to out ride the tire. The wear on them are great once again, they seem to last forever once again until you get to the higher groups. But for those who ride their bike on the street and track this is a no brainer

Talk about grip and longevity!
I commute a lot! I have almost 9k on both tires and my front still has life and my rear now needs to be replaced. I ride the streets hard and i try to hit up the canyons at least 1 time every two weeks. Mostly highway commuting and the tires are great. They warm up fairly fast and just dip real nice into turns. Leaning this bike over in canyons feels amazing and the tires feels like glue. I know guys say they run through tires at 4500 miles and stuff and honestly i dont know how unless you ride canyons all the time or track days. I ride the streets hard and constantly push the bike in and out of town and I have used the life of the tires. Personally these tires have been good to me and gave me great life.

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
