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

Good street-sport bike "sticky" tire. The Revzilla sale price was GREAT. Michelin tires have always worked well for me. On my touring bike I use the Pilot Road (dual compound) series tires and like them a lot, but they are pricey. I bought these for my wife's BMW 650CS, which needed new tires. She doesn't put a lot of miles on the bike, so wasn't worried so much about tread life. December 10, 2013
Never worry about grip again! If you're looking for serious amounts of grip in all conditions, look no further. It's sticky cold and gains heat quickly. On hot days, even with hard riding and max lean angles, the compound never overheats or becomes slippery. Cold weather doesn't affect them either and the tires stay warm. They're wonderfully responsive and translate road feel right into your seat. At speed, I've felt incredibly stable while watching other riders battle for grip. Wonderful under heavy braking and emergency maneuvers. The biggest drawback is tread life. If you're a hard rider and push limits for lean and speed, expect to chew up your rear in 4,000 miles or less. Especially if you're routinely in triple-digit speeds. Overall, this tire will never make you second-guess your traction and is a perfect buy for cost, value, and performance. December 9, 2013
this is the tire for riding curves this is the only tire i use on my 6 bikes and have never had one lose traction in the turns. November 18, 2013
Michelin does it again You cannot go wrong with this tire. I had a hole in my dunlop so I needed a new tire fast. I knew michelins were usually the way to go so I went with this one and feel like I'm 20 times safer out on the roads. I never do track days so this was perfect for my CBR600RR. October 14, 2013
Great tire! This tire is great even when first taking off not as sticky when hot but can still rip it from cold! September 30, 2013
Excellent Rear Excellent grip and traction. These are my second set and I will buy again. September 13, 2013
Tread channels pattern Tread channels water, in between soft/firm compound as well as provide excellent traction. September 9, 2013

Just put a digital caliper on it & the center treads are 5.62 - 5.74mm.

Sides are 4.55 - 4.59mm.
