Michelin Pilot Road 4 Front Tires
Better than PR3
Even better than the PR3. Feels more secure and better turning.

This is the third tire I've run on my Multistrada. It came with Pirelli angel gt tires that lasted 6k miles. Then Michelin pilot road 3s that lasted 6k miles. I then tried these pilot road 4 tires. the front tire rode rough and bumpy from mile one and now is chopped a 1k miles. The traction is as good as any tire I've used, but I can't recommend this tire. I love Michelin tires, but not this one. The pilot road 3 chopped at 3k miles, but never felt like this , it was smooth riding just looked bad. The pilot road 4 front tire has ruined how this bike rides. the tire feels like it's rock hard and bounces off everything and now has a tire wine at highway speeds.I hope they don't discontinue the pilot road 3s.

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.

On my ride, I came from a Dunlop sport touring tire that was stock on my bike and even though this is my second set of tires, I feel as a beginner riders that theses tires are great for beginners. After putting the PR4 set on, I immediately noticed how much softer the tire and the ride was but didnt compromise my ability to still feel the road. After putting 1K off dry weather on the tires with flawless traction, even after riding like a nut case, I had zero problems. Have yet to have a problem with wet traction as long as they are warmed up.
My only problem is after 4K on my rear, it is beginning to show a lot of wear even though I never do burnouts or such. I hope it will last more than 7k though.

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.

Road Pilot 4
This is my first RP4, the last tires I purchased were RP3 ( 12K miles), and RP2 ( 10K miles) before that. I have nothing but praises for the Road Pilot line, they mount up fine, balance very well and last ! The tires were mounted on a 2008 Buell Ulysses and have about 700 miles on them, so far they handle very well in the rain and grip at higher lean angles then the OEM tires. The cost has always been higher for the Road Pilots, but the mileage and handling out way the extra cost.

Poor ride... Great grip in wet
On my Kawasaki ZZR I've tried Bridgestone and Pirelli before buying Michelin. This is my second Michelin front tire. The first tire cupped badly by 2k miles and the bumpy ride was noticeable from mile one. I removed and discarded that tire at less than 2k miles and I was hoping for better luck with this second tire. But that was not to be. The ride is horrible but it has great grip in the rain. The back tire, a Michelin Pilot Road 3, has about 5k miles and it is wearing well. It rides much smoother than the front tire and has not given any issue thus far. However, this will probably be the last set of Michelin tires I put on my motorcycle due to the two bad front tires..

Great traction, not so great mileage
I put this on my Multistrada after running Michelin pilot road 3s. I ride rain or shine so wet traction is extremely important. this tire is great as far as traction is concerned. Never had a tire slip hot , cold, wet, or dry. No warmup needed. This tires only fault is it doesn't last as long as the pilot road 3. I have 5k miles on it and it needs replacement. The rear doesn't have irregular wear like the front tire does. For the money I'd stay with the pilot road 3.
