Great tire for my 09 r1, excellent grip especially flying around turns at high speed

Great sport tire
For me it's just a great all round dry/wet tire. Longevity is not there, but it's worth it for the grip and handling.

Great set of tires for the price.
Can't beat it for the price. Great traction, heat up well.

Best tires that money can buy!
Having owned a set already, this is my review of the Michelin Pilot Power tires. As a daily commuter, I can honestly say that these tires inspire confidence. In wet or dry weather. Get a set. You'll thank me later.

Pilot power is an amazing tire the rear grips very well i even got stuck in the rain a few times without a thing to worry about. Will be getting the front within the next few days.

Overall good sport bike tire for the road!
This is my second Michelin Pilot Power Rear Tire for my bike, and so far it still has the rubber "hairs" on them after riding (sometimes aggressively) about 300 miles. I purchased this tire because it is the same as the front and I read that it is safest to keep the same tires for traction and control purposes, but also because the plug in my old tire was starting to leak air (ran over a screw at a gas station). I rode on the plugged tire for way too long (maybe 2500 miles), but overall the tire and the plug never failed me until then. I am not sure how many miles the tire itself had put on it though. The only other thing the new tire has been doing is slipping a little bit when I am braking hard to come to a quick stop, but that only happens when I start to ride the bike, and the tires might still be trying to break-in a little more. Overall I really like this tire and would like to someday take it to the track to see it's possible potential.

Great street tire - can hold up to occasional track days as well
I've been using the Pilot Power and Pilot Power 2CT tires for years on my Yamaha YZF-R1. I ride mostly mountain twisty roads but also do occasional track days on these tires. The tires work great for the street at street pressures. For the track I call Michelin & use their pressure recommendation for the tracks I ride. I'm not a racer, but ride in intermediate and expert groups. I'm able to ride very hard for as long as I can last and these tires hold up well. Over the 10 years I've used these tires I have had some controlled slides when I pushed things harder and a single surprise slide from the rear while powering out of a sweeper. Overall these tires are grippy, predictable and long-lasting for the type of riding I do. For spirited twisty road riding they are superb!
