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 Rear Tires 4.9 5 84 84
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! August 31, 2015
Awesome Sauce! Great tires! Does everything it promises and more. I won't use anything else@ August 31, 2015
Great trustworthy grip, minimal heat time Riding on the street, its great that I did not have to ride around much to get the tire warm. Helps my bike corner very well with trust. Fresh install means I cannot comment on tread wear and haven't rode in the rain, but I would buy the tire again and only have 500-1000 miles on it. August 10, 2015
No complaints. Much better than the dry rotten, 10 year old tires that came on my Hawk. So far nothing to complain about. Grippy, good in the wet, don't seem to be wearing too badly. August 31, 2015
Good so far I haven't done too much riding on my tire, but so far it has held up well. Hoping it lasts longer than my dunlop tires. July 21, 2015
Sticks to the ground like glue Real solid tire.. traction is great in wet or dry enviroments.. tread life is just ok tho July 20, 2015
Great Product! Got it fast within two business days. Cant go wrong with this tire! July 20, 2015
Loving so far Have been riding on this for about a month now and the grip for cornering has been fantastic, I really can lean far without any issues. While I can't comment on tread life, for the price this seems to be a great choice. July 20, 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

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.
Disclaimer: This is based on personal experience and a serious bias towards Michelin tires

Renato N: I think I had about 8k on the rear before I replaced it, and front lasted a bit longer. This was on a wr250x though. Sep 5, 2014

Pratik A: Get the pilot power 2s if you do a lot of highway commuting. Those will last longer. Sep 2, 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.

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

Sides are 4.55 - 4.59mm.
