Compared to earlier Michelin tires, Pilot Activ tires deliver an increase of 20% in tread life, giving Michelin Pilot Activ tires an unbeatable price/performance ratio in this market segment.

Features:

  • 20% greater tread life than previous designs
  • Longitudinal and lateral tread grooves for effective water evacuation
  • Significantly improved wet and dry grip compared to earlier MICHELIN® bias-ply tires
  • Wide range of sizes to fit popular bikes that use bias-ply tires

So Far So Good I only have around 300 miles on these tires. They feel good so far. If you are installing them yourself on a tubed rim. It is pretty hard though. August 4, 2014
Best wear and handling tire for my old bmw. This tire lives up to the manufacturer's claim. I switched from Dunlop tires. I like the handling better and haven't noticed much traction difference between wet and dry pavement. I even had to ride about ten miles on snowpacked roads and survived. The mileage is great the Dunlops lasted only about 9,000 miles on the rear wheel.. The two Michelins lasted the full 12,000 miles. August 25, 2014
So Far so Good I only have 300 miles on these tires. Installing was horrendous by myself. Super hard. It took two people for the rear tire for me. August 4, 2014
Great tire Awesome tire at a amazing price,showed up fast no issues,fast shipping,a++ March 10, 2014
Triumph Thruxton Im on my third set of these tires. This is probably the best set if tires you can put on your Thruxton. December 19, 2013
I will also purchase the front again! Remember people, this is a bias mount! Product was an experiment & test on 20 & a 30 year old BMW. I am really impressed…..esp. over "our usual favorite flavor" Metzler. (50% greater mileage, so far) December 16, 2013
Good choice for a front tire While Michelin states that this is a rear tire, it turns out to be the exact size I need for my front tire. And since it's only been on the bike for a few weeks and I can't comment on tread life or wet traction, I can say that the grip is very responsive and it comes out of the curves very nicely. The sipes look as though they can channel water away quickly. All in all, a great tire. September 23, 2013
Wonderful Tire This tire performs very well in the dry and wet. I ride in the rain and have had no problem with traction. I have put about 5,000 miles on it so far and there is very little wear. I would purchase this tire again. August 21, 2013

A shopper asked: I've been using a front sport tire on the back of my RD350 because it was the only size that would fit. Feels good, no overheating or bad handling as of yet. Should I be expecting bad consequences? Jan 11, 2014

Richard P: I'm no tire expert but I would not think that it would be wise. I think tires are labeled Front and Rear for a reason besides just size. Weight support, steering quality, drive train force, etc.., are some of the things that I'm sure have been taken into account when manufacturing front and rear tires. If the local dealer does not have the original tire brand to replace it with I'm sure you can search on the web and find one. Hope this help to be safe while riding. Jan 17, 2014

Guy C: I bought this tire for my BMW RT 1150 as a replacememt for a Dunlop that was cupping.
I fimd the bike now tracks better on tje highway amd after 1500 km there isno appearance of cupping. I plam to replace the back tire with a Pilot Active as soon as it is needed. Hope this is of some help. Also found that service at Rev Zilla was exemplary for a great price.

Streven M.: The H rated tire is rated for lower speed (130mph), vs. the V rated tire (150mph). The F at the end might because the tire is a bias-ply tire not a radial tire. If so it would give you an indications of how many layers (and therefore how much load it can handle) the tire is. May 29, 2013

RevZilla: The difference between the two is the speed rating. The "H" and "V" in the two size denotes the speed rating which is 130mph and 149mph respectively. Jan 31, 2013
