The Michelin Pilot Street Radial brings the radial revolution to small and medium-size bikes!
Radial architecture that enables improved overall response and handling as well as unrivaled performance over the long term, compared with a same-size cross-ply tire. A 100% silica rubber compound that delivers the best wet grip in its category, for a safe, sporty ride. The Pilot Street Radial tires are derived directly from Michelin's radial Sport Touring ranges and features tread borrowed from the Michelin Pilot Road 2, giving the motorcycle an attractive, sporty appearance.
The Pilot Street Radial features a slightly sharper profile to ensure excellent driving precision under normal riding conditions and a steeper shoulder for steering accuracy when camber angle increases.
Optimized groove tread pattern
Tread pattern designed to minimize uneven wear and maximize mileage while enhancing wet weather performance
Variable groove width along the tread pattern
High silica content for increased wet grip without sacrificing tire life
Precision handling with high level of rider feedback
Superior longevity compared to a primary bias-ply competitor
This is the one...
There are a few bikes now with this tire size....I ride supermoto and this was a major step up from stock. Keep in mind the old tire was aging and starting to crack so obviously it would be night and day....but major improvements with bumps and cracks in the road. Compliments the suspension nicely and keeps its shape even with 2 people aboard! Ive only been caught in the rain briefly (is it a sickness that I cant wait for rain so I can test the waters?) and the road was not a total washout but was damp and it was a chilly morning and these really grab a hold... the only time these will break free is when you are practicing the drift in the front yard! I waited for months for a review that would sort of pertain to what I wanted in this tire and I have to say I'm VERY satisfied. I even hit a few cinders at night on a bend that would have sent me sailing if I hadn't replaced and got these and for that I love them. I absolutely HAD to get a matching front which I have to say must compliment the back nicely as the stock was again worn in the centers and was misshapen for a brand new perfect rear. I would replace both as confidence is now at an all time high.
I would swear by this tire and after seeing how smooth it is no joke have actually changed to Michelin for my car and SUV as well.....Remember you get what you pay for...Michelin delivers! I paired the 140/70 rear with the front 110/70 ....and you'll notice the treads oppose each other. The only thing I can 100% guarantee is a smooth ride and a tire that doesn't break loose when you need it most. These will show you how fun it is to drag a knee! Ride on! hope to see these on more local small CC bikes!

great in the wet, even better in the dry
I bought this for my CBR250R and I am very glad I did, it provides great grip in the wet, even when the tire is not all that warm(compared to IRC Road Winners).

The clear choice for cbr250r/ninja300
Finally the big companies are taking notice of the smaller bikes on the market and producing quality aftermarket parts for us.
This is the first tire available that is designed specifically for the cbr250r/ninja300 and it doesn't disappoint.
Even just a few minutes after putting them on I could tell the difference.
They are stickier than the stock IRC tires found on both bikes.
Before when aggressively downshifting into 2nd gear I would hear the rear wheel chirp and loose traction. Not anymore. The pilot street radial doesn't loose traction even when aggressively downshifting into a corner.
Also the braking performance has increased substantially. There is more feel and I can apply the brakes with quite a bit more pressure before the wheel starts to break loose.
The ride is smoother and bumps are less noticeable thanks to the radial design.
Also the wet performance is important to me as an all season commuter, and this tire is the best there is. Michelin released a press release where they tested the stopping distance in wet and dry and in the wet the stopping distance was only 3" longer than in the dry!
All thats left to see is how long they last. As long as I get decent mileage I would 100% recommend these to owners of small displacement sport bikes as the go to tire for any type of riding.

Joshua B: Heard good things about this tire Needed a upgrade for my ninja 300Jan 9, 2015
Devin D: I purchased the ront tire from a local shop, but revzilla has much better pricing so I ordered my rear from here. Awesome tire.Dec 9, 2014
Douglas C: Looking for a good set of wet-weather tires for my CBR250R and this seems to be the one...Oct 14, 2014
Anthony C asked:How many miles can I expect out of these? I'm on a Ninja 300. I commute everyday 60+miles, so I eat up mileage very quickly. 99% of my riding is done on highways, and I'm not a knee-dragger, so I'm looking for a good tire for that purpose that is more inspiring than the stock IRCs.
Are these alright for my purposes, and how many miles should I expect?Feb 13, 2015
farley j:Can't speak for mileage, I have had them on my cbr250r for a year with about 4000km with little wear. They are much stickier than the irc's that came with the bike and are great when it is cold and wet which is often in Vancouver, Canada. If you are doing lots of highway and are not concerned about putting an over sized tire consider the pilot road 3 or 4, it will change how you bike will turn, or so I have heard but a dual compound tie will last longer if you are riding mostly highway, but you will be altering the dynamics of the bike by changing tie size, otherwise I have been happy as Larry with the pilot street. Get some advice on other forums as sellers will have to protect themselves from liability for a noon OEM tire size...Feb 18, 2015
Ian J:I've got almost 9,000 miles on my set. They appear to be about 60% worn or so. I routinely used to get about 8,000 out of my SportDemon tires (4 sets in a row). These are a massive improvement in both handling and mileage from my perspective. I'm thinking I'll end up getting at least 12,000 out of the Pilot Street tire. I also commute about 70 miles a day round trip. I run about 60% slab and about 40% twisty for my commute. I highly recommend without hesitation!Feb 17, 2015
Justin B:I rode the stock tires for 9000 or so miles. I thought that I would get comparable life out if the new tires. I sold the bike sometime after that. The main difference that I experienced was that the new tires had a more aggressive performance. They lent themselves to getting into a more aggressive turning posture better than the stock tires. They do feel different. I wish I had more. Hope this helps.Feb 17, 2015
David B:I commute as well. Put 16,000 miles on a CBR250 in two years. You'll like these tire because they have fibers that improve grip in the rain. Different compound for mid tire with grippier rubber on the camber plus the fibers for grip on wet pavement. I am buying a set, perhaps the IV when I get new tires for my CBR500R. Not sure about mileage but they should out perform most.Feb 17, 2015
tin n:Sorry, but I'm not the one who can answer this question. I too ride a ninja 300, however I live in Atlanta georgia. I installed the tires in September and it soon got cold after. I have less than 1000 miles on my set. They still look really new after 1000 if that helps any and I'm happy with the performance. Feb 17, 2015
I was deciding between the Michelin Pilot Street Radials and the Pirelli Sport Demon Sport Touring tires to replace the rear tire on my girlfriend's Ninja 250r, and I wanted to ask you guys for your opinion. She rides year round since we are in Southern California. She doesn't ride too aggressively, but we do go on the occasional group ride through the Palomar Mountains. Which tire would you guys recommend for a good balance between grip and durability?
Michael W:I think the Michelin Pilot Street Radials are very grippy but never tried the Sport Demons. I considered them but some people reported 4k miles for the tires, which I would go through in 3 months.
I ride in northern CA year round and take curves fairly aggressively.
Unless she is dragging pegs the Street Radials should be fine.Mar 27, 2014
Max P:I made the move to these tires from the BT-45s on my gs500 and I was presently surprised at the different feel. The michelin provided much better grip and stability. I can't comment of the Pirelli but I would usual advise on have two matching tires. Mar 26, 2014
Ara C:I love the Michelin Pilot Street on my 250r. Feels like a new bike with more performance and much stickier. Stopping has improved too!! I recommend these tires and will be buying them again. Mar 26, 2014
