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.


  • 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

Tires feel great and warm up quick. Feels good in turns... I highly recommend these tires. Great for road and track. April 7, 2014
Great tire for the price I have been riding for years and really love the grip and feel of this tire. Great job Michelin and thank you Revzilla. March 20, 2014
Great tire This is a very cost effecient tire perfect for the everyday and seasonal rider. This is the second one I have purchased. My other one had a couple of nails stuck near the sidewall so I wasn't willing to take the risk of a blow out going around a corner so I bought another one. March 4, 2014
Excellent Buy Read the reviews and decided to go for it. This tire is way better than my previous pirelli that was worn down. The tire actually makes the bike feel safe in most all situations, fast or slow, hot or cold, wet or dry. October 29, 2013
Good daily street commute Prior to this order, I had only the rear Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Tire. Love how the rear gripped but didn't like the front all season tires I had to go with it. So as soon as my rear tires got bald, I ordered front and rear Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Tires. I love these tires!! I live up in the hills with slight curvy twisty turns. They perform very well and grip well! Really good for my daily commute. Definitely going to order them again when my tires go bald in the future. September 29, 2013
sticky buns I have about 4000 miles on these tires on an SV650s. Great dry traction, pretty good in the wet. The back is starting to square a little, but 4000 miles on a sticky sport tire thats not toast yet seems pretty good to me. August 16, 2013
Performance Love michelin's pilot power 2ct. great dry day summer tire for any mountain rode. I've pushed the to the max lean angles and I always feel like I'm glued to the ground with these tires they heat up fast so you get maximum traction and ready for what ever is in front of you. As far as wet traction I've rode in some foggy misty days on the way to work but I haven't tried to push them to hard!! this is my third set and would recommend them to anyone August 12, 2013
Great Tier for Street Bikes I recently got the 2CT and I was blown away by how much better it was then the Dunlops I used to run. Wet/Dry Grip is both much improved, and from the seat of my pants it feels like I get better lean angles. Not too sure on the treadlife, only have 500 miles on it, they still look new though, no stripe or anything. Hopefully the dual compound means good life, but we shall see August 5, 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.

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
