Michelin Pilot Road 3 Front Tires

Building on the tremendous reputation Michelin has built over the years, the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Tire is the successor to the award winning Pilot Road 2.  With the Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire you are really getting 2 tires in 1, by integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds.  The Pilot Road 3 is a dual compound sport-touring radial tire.

Revolutionary X-Sipes technology maximizes wet traction

  • Michelin’s newest technology delivers all-weather performance without compromising tread life or handling
  • Patented innovation resulting from years of research and development 
  • Sipes increase the tread's drainage capacity
  • Sipes generate pressure at the edges of the sipe blade, which helps to break through water film

Two compound technology combines tread life and cornering grip

  • 2CT incorporated into all tire sizes, front and rear
  • Wider soft-compound shoulders on the front tire, compared to its predecessor

High performance and environmentally sound

  • 100% non-aromatic-oil rubber compound

Good front tire I needed new tires before the new ride season came up so o decided to get the Michelin pilot road 3's yes I got the back and the front. They look great, good traction, and also with the water flow design they have good handling in the rain. January 12, 2015
I prefer these to the PR4s I've used the PR3s for a couple years on my DL1000, getting 10K miles on the rear. I switched to the 4s and there was a 1500 mile break-in period till they felt like the 3's. After that, no difference, so I'm going to go back and get the full use out of each tire by switching to the 3. February 19, 2015

Best tire for Concours 14 Neutral handling tire cures the "Dunlop Flop" of the OEM installed sport bike tires. Bike feels 100 pounds lighter. November 10, 2014
Great in straight lines and the twisty stuff, wet or dry Rode the Tail, Cherohola, Blue Ridge, and 40/65 on a six state weekend with these new skins - Tires responded well in wet, dry, hot and cold - Lots of confidence in the corners that the rubber will hold and let you enjoy the lean - Great tires 12K in and running strong. October 23, 2014
Nice Soft Tire I bought a set of these to replace my stock BT54 Bridgestone tires on my CB1100. These tires are much softer than the stock tires, better grip and wear. My stock front was worn ( cupped) at 3000mi I have 4500 on these with no visible sign of wear. Highly recommended. November 28, 2014
HOLY COW Just got off some Dunlop's.. They came with the bike so they made for a good "control" test. More like a "where do we go from here" test. These bad boys made my ride feel like a whole different bike! Much smoother ride, along with much smoother (and QUICKER) and controllable hard stops. Its like they eat the pavement for breakfast. I feel 100% more confident going into leans with these. Night and day difference. I'll be looking into another when the time comes. unless, of course.. they only get better! :D September 30, 2014
Wish they didn't chop so much I put these on my Multistrada at 6k miles. This tire is quiet, smooth riding and last a long time. I get 6k mile out of them. The traction is great wet or dry, I can almost forget about the weather with these. The only problem I have with this tire is irregular wear. I have to run this tire about 4psi higher than normal to slow down the chopping of the tread. My tire looked terrible a 4k miles. There was plenty of tread and it rode smooth and quiet but was all chopped looking.Maybe it's the horizontal grooves causing it. Michelin tried to improve it with the pilot road 4, but that front tire is much worse, it chops and rides bad.I may try this one again and just not look at when it chops, it doesn't seem to effect the ride quality.I still ran it to 6k miles.

Donald F: Because my front pilot road 2 wore prematurely just like the last one and this is supposed to be "improved" . Meanwhile I had bought a pilot road 3 rear tire -- so I am stuck in the Michelin rut. Would rather switch to a different brand with a more stable product line up. Oct 6, 2014

CLINT T: I live in the pacific northwest and needed a good wet weather tire. These tires work great. I've ridden in absolute downpours and never felt concerned about the tire's ability to hold the road. On dry pavement they are sticky enough that they can be pushed through faster corners with the same confidence of almost any tire I've used. As a commuter I like them a lot and unless Michelin comes out with something better before the next time I need tires I'll buy another pair. Cheap insurance. Nov 14, 2013

Very pleased with all aspects - handling, dry and wet grip, quiet. Out of production now, but will likely go with PR4s when I need new ones. Sep 24, 2013
Paul H: 2 reasons, on our last trip we were caught in 600 miles of rain and wind of a 2,000 mile ride, my riding buddy was running the Pilot Road 3, 1 â?? great handling and stability (dual compound), 2 â?? wear, after that trip and the 3,000 on the sneakers very little signs of wear and only now starting to show a flat spot in the middle of the rear. He rides a â??05 SV 1000 and I plan on putting these on my â??07 1250 Bandit. Sep 23, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi, I'm relatively new to street bikes and don't have a great deal of knowledge to make a good decision on tires. I have a 2011 Suzuki V-Strom 650ABS. I've had it since new and have put about 9000 miles on it. It is my first street bike. My rear tire is due for replacement. It is the factory tire. The front still has a lot of tread on it. What tire would your recommend? The size is 150 70 R 17. Thank you very much.

Richard R: I would highly recommend the PR3 for your bike. I was in the same situation 3 years ago when I bought my first sport/touring (street) bike, a Honda NT700VA
(ABS). The factory OEM tires lasted about 8,000 miles (very soft compund). I researched and came down to buying either the PR3's or the Avon Storms. Bought the PR3's from Revzilla. My NT weighs about 580 lbs, I weigh 165, and I ride 1-up with touring gear, so the saddlebags and top box are full, and I have additional gear strapped to the pax seat. I ride about 50/50 Interstates/sweeper or twisty roads. My front PR3 got over 20,000 miles. My rear PR3 got 18,000 miles. I currently have over 50K miles on my NT and just purchased my third set of PR3's. Retail MSRP they are VERY expensive. But the Revzilla prices for them can't be beat. You will definitely get your money's worth out of them, regardless of where you ride with them. Plus, they are outstanding in rain/wet weather riding. Very stable and very well made.

Since my experience with them, I recommended them to several other riders on the forum I belong to. Many of them also ended up buying them, not only for their NT's but for other "street" bikes they owned. They are all very satisfied with them.

Mark W: Wesley,
Your choice of tire will depend on what kind of riding you do. Your V Strom has some off-road capabilities and if you plan to use them you will need a tire that can handle light off-road duties. If not, then stick with a street tire like the Pilot Road 3. I recently put them on my FZ6 and they are fantastic. The dual-compound wears nicely and the softer sides give great traction. I've been especially impressed with wet weather handling. These are great street tires.
For light off-roading I have been using Continental's Trail Attack 2 tires on my R1200GS. They are much better in the dirt than a normal street tire and they work great on pavement too. I managed to get almost 12,000 miles on them before needing replacements. The Road 3 tires only have about 1500 miles on them so I can't attest to the tire life, but there is no discernible wear so far.
Good luck and stay safe.

Scott P: In the past I have run the front longer than the rear to save on the cost of replacing them both - after all, there's still tread left, so why replace it, right? Now days, I ALWAYS change both when the rear wears out. With only a couple of very small contact patches, having a matched set, running at optimal grip is worth the extra cost for control and safety. I'm very pleased with the Pilot Road 3's - don't think you could go wrong with them on your V-Strom. Oct 22, 2013
Reply to Scott Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
John B: Wesley,I have used the Pilot Road and PR2 and PR3 for many years (even on the track) with great success - I highly recommend them. However you do not say what brand of front tire you presently use. I personally never mix brands on my bikes.
You can't go wrong with the PR3 but whether you want to mix and match with the front is a choice only for you.
