Michelin Pilot Power Rear Tires

You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin® racing tire technology. Michelin Pilot Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tire's surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike.


  • MotoGPderived rubber compound requires minimal warmup time
  • The softest rubber mix in its class for remarkable grip, yet maintains tire performance even at advanced stages of wear
  • Unprecedented lean angles: 50.6 degrees in the dry, 41.9 degrees in the wet
  • Rubber mix remains soft even at lower temperatures providing excellent grip from the start of your ride
  • Grooved area that's less than 12% of the tread pattern for phenomenal cornering adhesion
  • "These are the best street tires I've ever ridden in my life." Steve Atlas, Roadracing World

Michelin Pilot Power Ran 3 sets of this tire on my 97 Monster 900. I can usually get around 8k miles on the rear before the belts start showing. My riding is about 90% highway and 10% spirited canyon carving. It starts to develop a flat spot on the middle at about 5k miles. I never lost traction in wet and dry with these tires and the lean angle is amazing. I would get these tires again. March 2, 2015
Still the best tire in my mind. Great tire with great grip. Will be back to order again next year! February 23, 2015

A shopper asked: Hey I'm looking at getting a set of tires and I'm looking at the pilot power. I do a lot of commuting 200 miles just to and from work a week and hit the canyons on the weekends so im looking for something that will have a lot of life but it can trust in the canyons. I'm wondering what you guys recommend for me? Sep 1, 2014

Todd W: good question,

I use these tires on my Sport Tour BMW RT. I can not complain on the performance of the tires. This being said, I would not use these for my CBR1000RR, that is a dif bike. I ride that on the track ONLY and use DOT Race tires. Dunlop Q3 tires would be my choice if I rode my CBR on the street, I hope this helps.

Lisa H: You'd do better with the road pilot 3 or 4 with your type of riding. Power pilot is a good tyre but wears quickly (5000mi)compared to the road pilot (12000mi). The RP series handles corners just fine.

Michael M: I can answer this, as I just today put another Pilot Power on the rear.
Bike is still on the stands, (tire has not yet seen pavement)
Just put a digital caliper on it & the center treads are 5.62 - 5.74mm.

Sides are 4.55 - 4.59mm.
