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

Michale R: Because I already have a front tire that is a Michelin Pilot Power 2CT that I purchased last summmer. When one or both of these tires wears out, I will upgrade to the Michelin Pilot Power 3's which have longer lives!Apr 17, 2015

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 rainingSep 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?
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.Nov 8, 2013
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 busaNov 9, 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
