Best tires for the street I discovered these tires a few years back, when got into "Sport touring" riding with my 09 Ninja 650R. They are by far way better than the original OEM Bridgestone 021. The first impression was- the bike stays glued to the road, don't wonder around on a windy day... Than the grip on a twisty road is excellent- don't recall EVER to slip and slide the rear on a sharp turn, what was a common case with the OEMs. The wear is phenomenal too - the rear gets around(-/+ 1000mi) 10k mi, front gets 20k mi. Since than I use these tires on ALL my bikes (I never go to tracks, just street fun) - FJR1300, GSX-R750, Duke II supermoto. They perform outstanding, never had any problems or complains. I will never even try another brand, maybe only the newer versions of the same tire... I have had some Dunlops on a Harley, also Pirellis on my FJR and Magna V65 when bought, they don't even come close to Michelin, don't waste your money! Other tires don't grip so good and have less than half the life/mileage, at the same price. Go figure... Thanks, Michelin, for the excellent tires! February 9, 2014
Great tire! No problems yet This is a great tire! Alot more grip than i had thought! I actually took it out for a track day(because im poor and cant afford more tires) and they did alright. The shipping was spot on too not a few days later after it was told to be there January 27, 2014
One great tire Have 6000miles on these tires and still have a lot of tread left. Will continue getting these tires. January 25, 2014
Great grip and comfort I love this tire! Great grip after you burn off the mold release... January 6, 2014
Very good water dispacement Long center strip life, good grip dual compound, not very good aesthetic December 19, 2013
Great Tires for the Street I have about 2500 miles on these tires now, not the first time i have had them nor will it be the last. They hold up great even though i commute as much as i do on the slab, still no sign of squaring. I ride 5 days a week 40 miles each day for work. Rain or shine and sub freezing temperatures. These tires have always held up. While not on the sv, I have run these tires on the track on my street triple and they are fine as long as you pay attention to how hot they get. They can get slippery after a few sessions on the track. Not something you will ever have to worry about on the street or canyon carving. You just dont put a tire through the stress a track day does while riding your bike on the street. Add in these do better then track oriented tires in the cold and wet and last longer, its a no brainer to go with these. December 3, 2013
Good long wearing tire. Good tire but will go back to PR3 for the wet traction. December 2, 2013
Great Tire These are my second pair of these tires on my 6th gen VFR800. They were replaced at around 10000 miles due to a construction staple puncture. They probably would have gone another 3-5K. Grip was quite good allowing 1/4inch chicken strips under normal street ride conditions. November 25, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
V A: Best sport-touring tire, last over 10k miles too Mar 23, 2014
Kevin H: I was considering the PR3 and PR4, but saw a lot of reviews online saying that the PR2 is still a fantastic tire that has been tried and tested for years. A lot of people still stand by it over the PR3/PR4. It is also more affordable and has a better looking thread pattern than the PR3 and PR4. Mar 4, 2014
Dave G: Fantastic medium hard tire, still grips real good on my zx11 and will last a lot longer than soft compound tires Dec 17, 2013
A s: These tires have excellent grip and wear like iron. Love my PR2's. Dec 5, 2013
Gary H: I have run several different tires on my 02 BMW R1150R. Since trying the Pilot Road 2's I have found a tire that gives me a great ride with noticeably better tire life! Dec 4, 2013
Roger S: These tires were on the FJR when I purchased it so I just went with the same ones. Got about 10K out of the set mostly freeway commuting. Nov 19, 2013
David B: high mileage tire with great wet weather traction.3000 miles on them still look brand new.2010 vfr 1200 Nov 15, 2013
Reed H: Affordable tire that will fit my Harley Oct 3, 2013
Eddie L: Best $ on the internet, and BMW K1600 GT fitment, great service! Sep 22, 2013
J M: best tire best price excellent service from revzilla Sep 11, 2013
Mathew B: Because I will not be riding that much in the rain and do not see you point of paying more for the 3s if im not going to use them. also because I ride my bike everyday so I need somthing that can handle my style of riding. Aug 30, 2013
Douglas G: Favorable reviews Aug 26, 2013
James N: Replacing the same tire that is one my bike with around 10K + miles on them. Would have got a few thousand more if not for a puncture. Aug 20, 2013
Christopher C: This will be my 2nd set of Pilot Road 2s on my 2009 R6. My first pair have about 10,000 miles on them and I will probably put another 1-3 miles on them before I put the 2nd set on. Aug 13, 2013
James S: I ride a Speed Triple as my commuter and I ride 60+ miles a day just to and from work. I need a tyre with good longevity yet something that care take a corner or to and still stick (thanks to the dual compound). I ride in Las Vegas so rain isn't too much of an issue which means I didn't feel I needed the Pilot Road 3. Also warming up my tyres isn't too hard to do in Vegas (unless its winter). Overall I'm looking forward to trying these tyres out and fingers crossed they are as good as I hope. Aug 10, 2013

A shopper asked: What's the difference between a 180/55 17 and a 180/55 17B? Which size is correct for my 2013 BMW F800GT? Dec 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (1)
mark s: I regret that I can't answer the sizing question. However, I purchased the 190/60/17 for my 2006 Ducati Multistrada 620 and they were perfect on a 1600 mile trip to and from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Could not have been happier with the tires at full lean. I bought both front and rear and recommend doing so. My suggestion is to fit the exact BMW manufacturer spec.
Springs coming...stay safe.
