Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Rear Tires

Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot® Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot® Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces.

Features:

  • Real Moto GP technology from the tire company that has won 15 consecutive GPWorld Championships
  • 20% softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip
  • Unprecedented lean angles: 51.2 degrees in the dry on Michelin's test track
  • Precise handling and feedback
  • Lap times within 7% of Michelin Moto GP slicks when fitted on Colin Edward's Yamaha Moto GP bike at Malaysia's Sepang circuit in February 2006
  • Track Day tire that is equally at home on the road

Good grip Took it up the canyon and it feels great. I'll buy again from here August 18, 2014
Great Design and Functionality This was the first moto tire I replaced and it was a huge improvement from the economy tire the previous owner threw on there. I unfortunately didn't have the bike longer than 6months to assess tread life, but in the 4,000 miles I put on it, it showed very little signs of use. I was only caught out in the rain once but I was riding for a little while before I even noticed so thats a great quality. September 9, 2014
Very good tire They always felt good to me. Even when badly worn. Which is usually the point I take my tires to. They look really good on the bike. They inspire confidence. July 22, 2014
Awesome Only a 1000 miles on the tire with no wet riding yet but tread seems still new the grip is night and day difference between stock bridgestones and regular pilot powers. Chicken strips gone the first day. June 9, 2014
Love these tires This is my first set of tires I've bought and compared to the original Dunlap's that came with my R6. I love the grip I get with these tires. Best purchase so far May 26, 2014
GRIP GRIPY GRIPPIEST!! These tires have grip. My bike feels completely different when I put these tires on. They are just confidence inspiring and they have pretty good grip in wet conditions too. For the street rider (not track) who uses the bike to commute in the summer as well. These are perfect. Long life, great traction, works all around. Completely worth the money. May 23, 2014
Worst Dual Compound Tyre I've Ever Used I had these tires a while ago and figure I should review them because surprisingly they are still selling. As far as dual compound tyres go I've run on Michelin Power Pures, Bridgestone BT-016's, an Dunlop Q2's, and the 2ct's. I like to buy different and compare. The 2ct's fall dead last in terms of grip, warm up time, and high speed stability (and all very noticeable). The major set back was the high speed stability coming from the front tyre. I had my suspension properly set and tried multiple tyre pressures in order to fix this problem, but nothing worked. I wondered if it was just a bad set, but then when I researched reviews online and found the same results stated on motorcycle-usa's website. As a matter of fact I had the same review as them. I liked the feedback from the front tyre and wet traction wasn't bad at all, but the dry grip, warm up times, and stability fell short. I would not recommend this tyre to any friend. If you're wondering the best tyre I've run are the Dunlop Q2's (Q3's are out now!). They warm up very quick and eat bumps with no problem. I also loved the BT016's which were replaced by the newer Hypersport 20's. Happy riding and please avoid these. May 23, 2014
Best tire on the Market Highly Recommended to anyone that likes cornering. May 5, 2014

Christopher H asked: How does this tire perform in wet conditions? Oct 22, 2013

Jeffrey A: Hi Chris,
Sorry for the late and probably irrelavent answer by now but I honestly haven't ridden these tires in rain/wet conditions. Damp conditions yes and I would give them a very good rating, however when it's raining/wet pavement I tend to dial it back anyway. In dry conditions these tires in my opinion are also very good. The Power 2ct's are also suppose to be a longer lasting tire. I wasn't much impressed with that. I got less that 4000 out of the rears. Keep in mind a tire's mileage soely depends on riding style. The more aggressive you are with engine braking and accelerating you can expect to get less mileage out of your tires. I consider myself a "Spirited" rider but certainly not a knee dragger.

joshua v: This tire has performed well for me in the wet. I feel a lot more confident with these then i did my previous bridgestones. I babied them at first in the rain before i realized how well they actually performed.I would say i could drag a knee if there any good roads on my route when its raining Sep 2, 2014

HAROLD V: Great.. I am fairly aggressive in the wet also. But most of my commute is highway for 40 miles each way. I have been using this particular tire for a few years and I ride in Maryland all year long. This is with temps between low 20s and low 100s. No problem with this temp range. Oct 23, 2013

ppzx6r: This is just the rear 180 tire, already had the front pair. As for the price, I didn't buy from Revzilla and prices have changed a bit. I don't remember exact pricing at the local moto shop but remember paying close to $190 total which includes installation. Nov 24, 2012

A S asked: Hello there,
I need to buy rear tire for my 2009 Yamaha R6 and I am thinking between Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Rear Tire and Michelin Pilot Road 2 Rear Tire. I dont go on race track, i am just ridding for fun.
Can You please, tell me more about difference between these two tires and which one would you recommend?

Thank You, Milan

Jeromy C: Having ridden both of these tires on my 02 zx6r, I can tell you that it was very hard to tell the difference. Both have great turn in, and can be ridden pretty aggressively. Theoretically the Power has better grip and heats up quicker, but it for sure has less life.

I did have a low speed lowside on the Road. Did I screw up the corner? was my tire cold? Would the Power have made a difference? I really can't say, but I have decided not to compromise, I ride for deep corners so I get the tire that is best for that, the Power. If I was ridding for distance I would get the Road 2.

So the question is what do you want to do with it? If you ride to ride hard and are scrubbing off your chicken strips get the Power, if you are going the distance, commuting or just tootling around, get the better miles from the Road.

Winston Y: The 2ct will have more grip than the road 2. But you will get more miles out of the road 2. I suggest the road 3. Pretty good side grip and long lasting core. I've got about 8k on mine and probably will go to 10k. I ride a busa Nov 9, 2013

Fredrick H: The 2ct will stick better to the road but the road 2 will last longer. They are both good tires and if you do aggressive sport riding I would go with the 2ct. Nov 11, 2013

Chris K: We don't have a way of checking the age of the tires prior to shipment, however, we have a high turnover rate on Michelin tires, so chances are very slim that you would receive something more than a year old. Jan 31, 2012
