Michelin Pilot Road 4 Rear Tires
The PERFECT tire?
I put the PR4s on my 08 Concourse, WHAT a TIRE! I'm a commuter, I ride every day. Never had a traction problem in the rain, or dry. The best part is the wear, I got 7000 miles out of this set. I JUST ordered my second set. I'm a believer!

Bought a set of these to replace the factory Bridgestone BT021s on my bike. It's like a totally new bike. The handling characteristics are improved in every way. I am much more confident in wet conditions and in dry conditions the bike feels planted and more stable around turns. I have no regrets about buying these tires and I enthusiastically recommend them without any reservations.

incomparable wet grip
Just purchased this rear tire for my 92 Suzuki Bandit. I was a bit let down to discover that they don't produce this tire in my front size. That aside, a truly great product. Lo and behold, the day of installation and two days hence, there was a rain storm here in Phoenix. I thought, "perfect." After some miles in the city to scuff the silicone off the tires, I hit the freeway on the night of the first day of ownership. Tremendous results. A light drizzle continued solid throughout the night. Completely alone, I lost track of time cruising the tarmac of the 202. Amazing wet grip; I pushed my 400 to it's (current) top speed of 125 mph several times that night. A poor choice, in hindsight, to test the tires in such a way on the same day they were put on my bike. The grip though! I have never felt this sensation before, the feeling that your motorcycle is glued, unwavering, to the road. I cannot recommend this product enough. Revzilla is the cheapest place online to buy them as well. Cheers, and always wear a helmet.

Totally change my bike
I bought a beautiful low mileage BMW K1200S that came with a brand new set of sticky OEM tires. The bike never handled right in the corners, I was always having to put in a lot of counter steer. It was uncomfortable and I had trouble holding a line. I thought it was a characteristic of the bike, and was thinking of selling it. I put the Michelins on it after talking to customer service at Revzilla. They said most of the staff road the tires. My bike changed into the one I always wanted. I enter curves at least 20% faster, and with great confidence. My line through the corners is precise and I don't fight the steering at all. I don't know about tread life as I only have a couple of thousand miles on them, but I can tell you these tires completely transformed my bike.

moved from an '06 caponord that did 60,000+ miles on pr3's to a 2015 caponord that i swapped out the oem tire at 4000 miles for the pr4. i used to get 13.5k out of the rear pr3's and almost 17 out of the fronts. right now i'm at just over 10k on the set. still plenty of tread. i ride fully bagged up rain or shine 80 miles a day weekdays. we've actually had a couple of wet spells and the tires are just as i had hoped as far as traction. i might get 13k out of the rear and more from the front.

Commute, Canyon & RaceTrack no problem!
I was looking for a commuter tire that I could shoot the occasional canyon and get overall good life out of. Only a couple thousand plus miles on these so maybe a little new for a review. Just did a track day in the ran on them so thought I would write a review.
Did a day at the Streets of Willowsprings on this rubber with standing water on track and constant rain. All I can say is the tires way out performed my level of fear. As hard as I was willing to push them they never slipped or scared me and I'm on a liter bike.
Get these tires you will like them. They just make perfect since for a sportbike rider that spends time upright during the week and leaning only on the weekends. Ride on!
