I LOVE this tire, I have put 6 thousand hard miles on it in the 3 months I have owned it. Rain and all and it has not slowed me down or let me down one bit, best of all tires still looks brand new.

Phenomenal tire
I just replaced my PR 4 with a new one, after putting over 22k miles on it in every kind of condition you imagine. They grip well in dry, wet, high speed, cold, and any combination thereof.

I also ride in gravel WAY more than I should on my Versys, and these tires have held up very well. They do act like street tires off road though :).

I couldn't be happier with it.

Excellent tire for the touring/commuting/weekend rider
I purchased the Michelin Pilot Road 4 front and rear tires to replace the Pirelli Phantom's on my Ducati GT1000, and so far, they have been excellent.

We'll have to wait and see what happens with the mileage and the thread life, but there seemed to be an immediate impact in the area of feel and steering for the bike. Yes, it could be just psychological, but I feel more confident on the bike as a result of these tires.

FYI, I'm not a track guy. I commute when I can on weekdays, and occasionally take the bike out on weekends to explore back roads and such. These tires seem like a perfect fit for this type of rider profile. A+

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~

A truly excellent tire for most riders!
This PR4 does it all: it is well suited and comes in sizes for almost any late model motorcycle, handles and grips stupendously well in the wet and even more in the dry. And tread wear? I put on almost 300 miles before the chicken strips wore off and have 3k miles on them and they still look like new! For anyone that does street-only riding, these tires are for you! Overall, an excellent tire, especially for the price.

Great wet traction
Not the cheapest tire but I'm from seattle so it rains a lot. Great traction in the water, rear will slip under hard acceleration if it's cold, once warmed up it'll pull the front wheel even in the rain. They warm up decently fast. Had an issue with the shipping company, they only delivered the front tire, suppose to be the pair, REVZILLA has great customer service had a replacement rear tire shipped the next day, and gave me some revzilla $ for my troubles. Great site!

Love them!
I recommend pr4s to everyone who'll listen.
Previously I had pr3's on my 2001 R1100r, which I also liked a lot. They had great grip, good tread life (10k mi fr/8k mi rear), and gave me exceptional confidence in the wet.

My dad got pr4s on his bike and I immediately noticed they definitely had a more "v" profile to the pr3's more round profile. For me it made the bike a little more responsive and flickable - so much so I went out and bought a 17" front wheel so I could run Pr4's (my bike had an 18" wheel from the factory)

If you liked the Pilot 3's you'll love the PR 4's!
I just replaced a set of Pilot Road 3's with the new PR 4's. I put them on a 955 Tiger, so I went with the Trail Version. Nice improvement over the last version....especially for a big, heavy, Road Only Adventure bike. On a 4 day trip last weekend they saw 1500 miles of fairly aggressive West Virginia twisties. They are wearing nicely. I have 2600 on them so far and they look to be wearing more uniformly than the PR 3's did. Looks like I ought to get their claimed 20% more life out of them. Last week's trip included one day of hard rain and they held the tight twisties just fine. Honestly, I've never ridden so confidently in the wet. I'm looking forward to putting a set on my Speed Triple. A bit pricey, perhaps, but well worth it! Tires are one of those things that you get what you pay for. What's great traction and longer tread life worth to you?

excellent tire
Haven't ridden in the wet yet or to the end of their tread life. I just switched from the pilot 3 gt on my bmw gt1200 which I got a little over 11k miles. The 3s were excellent very predictable handling. My mistake that I made with them was to keep the tire pressure @39 lbs instead of 42 psi which is the manufacturers recommendation. The front tire showed cupping due to the lower pressure. With the 4s I hope to get 12k miles on them and I'll pay attention to the pressure. Tires showed up in 2days great to deal with" the rev"

I've had 3 sets of these tires on my SV650 and they've done very well. I have a ZZR1200 as well now and I'll be sticking with these until something better comes out. Stable in the corners, confidence inspiring in the rain, and an extremely long lifespan are what keep me coming back. I highly recommend this tire for the tourer who also likes spirited rides as well.

kevin g on Jul 10, 2016
It's a tire. Of course I chose this particular one based on amazing reviews but to be honest every time a newer tread or compound comes out I fell like I need that now because somehow the old design isn't good anymore. I bet the average street guy on a sport touring bike like my Ducati st4s couldn't tell this pr4 from the pr3 but I never tried the pr3 because I had Bridgestones that were also fine. So buy this tire because it makes you feel good knowing it must be better because it's newer.

My Pirelli Angel GTs wore unevenly on my 2008 Ninja 650 (no, it wasn't poor tire pressure), and I had Michelin PR 3s before them, so I'm going back to Michelin
Stephen S on May 20, 2016
I hear it is the best at wet traction and tire life. This has proven true as I've had them about a year, and have got caught in a few rain storms and didn't have an issue. I would say they retain about 75% of their gripping power when wet. Ride smart, and they will handle exceptionally.

I wore out three sets of PR3 tires and considered them the benchmark by which I would judge all other tires. I commute long distances all year long regardless of weather and this last set of PR4 tires has been amazing. I'm at 18K miles, and they are toast but I couldn't be happier with the way they perform in wet conditions and the miles I get out of them.

tom d on Feb 28, 2016
Very sticky! Got these after having concerns about very mild tread loss on pretty decent tire but felt slippage now and then. Not the case with these. Cornering with no reservations, stopping is much improved, look great. Zero show of wear after what I think is about 800 miles of moderate riding (for the most part). Highly recommended.
B R on Feb 27, 2016
Had the PR2s on my bike before, and the front tire lasted nearly 20000 miles! Great grip, amazing wet performance, and perfect for commuting.

Hi I wanted to know the size I needed to pick for a 2004 Suzuki katana 600. The specs say a 120/70 but Idk what the 55 and 58 wide mean and if they make a difference?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2016
Any problem matching the Pilot 4 front with a Pilot 2 rear?
A C on Feb 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While it's always best to have the same set mount on your bike, I'll say this... Currently I have a PR3 on the rear and a PR4 on the front of my FJR1300. I just finished a 4000 mile ride thru all kinds of conditions including pushing it hard in some twisties and they performed perfectly. I can't speak to the PR2 but the difference between the PR3 and PR4 rear tires is miminal. The biggest difference is with the front tire. The PR3 front had a lot more rain groves to the point of enabling the tire to flex more in the turns making it feel unsteady. It also caused the front to wear down pretty quick. The new PR4 front has fewer rain groves and a slightly different compound to fix that problem.
What are the recommended tyre pressures for front and back Pilot Road 4?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Check what the manufacture recommends. My Triumph was 36 front and 42 rear. Some people like different pressures for their riding style. Also if you are riding 2 up, consider adding 2-3 psi in the rear.
But note, tire pressures are a personal choice and a balance between ride comfort, handling, turn in and grip. It also depends on your weather conditions, load, and road surface.
In the past the PR2 front tire had some weird wearing down. The slits in the tire would wear down badly.
Is this still so?
A S on Aug 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately due to some health issues and an injury to my wrist, I haven't put enough miles on the front PR4 tire to determine how it is wearing. But I do know that the front PR4 tire has a vibration just as the PR3 tire I replaced. The PR3 tire wore-out quickly and it had bumps all over the tread area by the time it had only a couple thousand miles. I suspect the new front PR4 is going to wear similarly due to vibration I feel. The rear Road Pilot 3 tire has about 3k miles and it still looks and rides fine... But I will never install Michelin tires on my motorcycles again..
I just purchased a set of Pilot Road 4 Trails for my 2013 BMW R1200GS...the first ride on them the rear seemed a bit sloshy under hard breaking...and the front seemed like it vibrated quite a bit more that I'm used to. The front pressure was about 40 and the rear 42. Anyone out there with any feedback on these tires?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Vibration is a balance problem. Don't know what sloshy is. Normal pressure is
33-34 front and 34-36 rear.
I have them on a Ducati 1199. No negative issues. I attained speeds up to 155 with no problems.
Hi - I'm looking to purchase these set of tires (Michelin Pilot Road 4) for my Suzuki GSXR 600. I'm looking for more longevity out of my tires, would you recommend these or another?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This will probably be the last time I buy Michelin motorcycle tires. Last year I told the local shop to install Pilot Road 3 tires on my Kawasaki ZZR600. When I picked up the bike I was told that Michelin didn't make a Pilot Road 3 in my size for the front so they installed a Michelin Pilot Power and a Pilot Road 3 on the back. The rear tire now has almost 3k miles and it has been great. However, the front tire, a Pilot Power, was horrible from day one. I complained of a vibration and the shop checked the balance. The vibration didn't go away and only got worse. Eventually small bumps appeared.... So when the new Pilot Road 4 came out in my size I immediately ordered one for the front... Much to my disappointment, I can feel the same type vibration that the Pilot Power had.. I've only put a few miles on the Michelin Road 4 and I have a feeling that it isn't going to get any better with age. I did get about 12k miles from a set of Bridgestone Battlax tires but they weren't good in rain. My second set of tires were Pirelli Diablo Strada. I got about 12K from those also and they were better in the rain. I don't know what my next set of tires will be but I'm sure that front tire wont be a Michelin.
Would you recommend the Pilot Road 4 or the 4GT for a BMW R1200ST which weighs 504 lbs full of fuel. I never carry a passenger. The Michelin site calls out the standard PR4 not the GT , but I was curious what your experience might be with one tire over the other?
A shopper on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'd get the GT's if the cost isn't too much more. They're put on the R1200RTs from the factory for a reason. The only difference is that the GT's should last longer than the regular PR4s.
I have a 2006 Kawasaki ZZR600, I believe the factory spec for the front tire is 120/65, but this tire and several others are only available in 120/60 and 120/70. I am interested in a set of the PR4, but not sure of which aspect ratio to select. My instinct would be to go with the lower profile 120/60, but my concern would be experiencing something similar to William J. from a previous answer. Which aspect ratio is the better bet?
A S on Apr 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A profile angle of 65 will give a rounder touring style shape to the tire. A profile of 70 will give more contact on the sidewalls during lean angles. I ride fairly aggressively so i always get the 70 for the front. ,)
Hi - I'm looking to purchase these set of tires (Michelin Pilot Road 4) for my Suzuki GSXR 600. I looking for longevity out my tires. Would you recommend these or another?

Thanks in advance
A S on Feb 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 90% of tire choice depends on where and how you ride. What may be a great tire for your buddy may not perform to your expectations. I pick a tire for surface conditions and the average weather conditions for where I ride. Stopping power is a primary factor for me as well. Bottom line choose a tire that is designed for your riding style and the conditions you ride in.
Why only two sizes available in road 4? Where the road 3 has five sizes. What gives?
Very limiting selection.
Walter G on May 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You are lucky Michelin doesn't make the Pilot Road 4 in your size. Otherwise you might buy them and have to deal with a bad tire. My front tire has less than 2000 miles and I feel the same subtle vibration that the last Michelin tire had. I replaced the last tire at 3000 miles because it had bumps all over it. Michelin makes a great automotive tire... However, in my opinion, Michelin motorcycle tires are of substandard quality... I will never buy another Michelin motorcycle tire....
