Michelin Pilot Road 4 Front Tires
High quality tire
After just a few hundred miles, this tire shows zero signs of wear yet feels soft to the touch. It has a high shoulder and improved the turn-in on my BMW R1150RS dramatically. Great grip wet and dry. Looking forward to many more miles on this great tire.

Better than the stock tires on a Yamaha FZ6R
I have only put about 200 miles on these tires so far, but they show almost no signs of wear. The grip they have is quite good, and much better than the stock tires. I have not had a chance to test them in the rain yet, but I will update this review with any updates.

Only had the new Pilot Road 4 tires installed for about a 3 weeks, but so far they have performed GREAT.I will be extremely well satisfied.

GET THEM !!
Same review as for rear tire. Michelin is simply making a superior product. You won't be disappointed.

Outstanding All-Round Tire!
I installed these tires (front & rear) on a 1998 Honda VFR 800 Interceptor. I use it for daily commuting as well as spirited back road twisties and weekend fun rides. I can't yet comment on their treadwear, but Michelin states it is 20% improved over the PR3s, which had exceptional tread life.
I've ridden a few hundred miles on the PR4s so far on various tarmac services. They have been outstanding in both wet and dry conditions. Turn-in is crisp, they don't wander over changing surfaces, and grip was excellent from day one.
One of the advantages touted in their improvements over the previous models was better ability to handle road paint, tar snakes, etc., and I can report this is true. I've ridden some fairly hairy back roads and these tires have given me NO REASON not to trust them implicitly.
I have just over 5000 miles on these tires now; the front has worn very evenly & still have perhaps 1-2k left but the rear is ready for replacement NOW as it has worn the center 1/3 out (daily commuter). Take into account the fact that I ride pretty aggressively. I don't know HOW some folks are getting 10-12k miles out of these tires~

Hope they're as good as PR3
Feels like good grip with these. I loved the PR3's which lasted as long as any tire I've tried (mostly Michelin PR's).
Those stuck like mad and I got 10K mi rear and 12K mi front with a little tread left. Not sure I love the tread design visually as much but that counts for squat. If I hate them I'll update my review.

Just finished the first 4K on these out west on superslab, country roads, and tons of rain. These are fantastic tires. They ain't cheap, but totally worth it IMHO. Haven't had them off road yet, so I can't judge that part. Also, too new to judge tread life. Upcoming trip will include some dirt and sand.

I've put about 1k miles on this set of tires. So far they ensure confidence and stability. These tires replaced a set of PR3s with 16K miles on them. I probably left them on about 1k or so too long but they were excellent tires. I expect these to be even better. I however, have not had them in any rain so far. The wet traction rating is based on my previous set of PR3s. Bottom line these are great tires so far, and I expect to get exceptional tread life out of them. These tires have been great for my commuting as well as some back road twisties.
