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.

Great Sport/Touring Performance
I got 9,000 miles from my last set of Pilot 3's and went straight back for another set. My riding varies greatly from mellow to aggressive, and 90 percent of my time is on twisty two lanes through the southwest mountains, where every corner can bring a surprise.

outstanding tire
i have put on 10k miles in these tires on my 2005 fjr1300. i have driven in very dry conditions all the way to down pouring rain with no issues. i had the bridgestone battle axes on before and hated them, especially the wet grip. my tires would have lasted a little longer if i had kept up on air pressures, i'm sure i would have gotten another 2,000 miles on the tires, i will be ordering another pair from revzilla here soon, i wish i knew about them when i bought my last pair, they have been cheaper on everything that i've wanted for my bike

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

Just replaced this tire .... Got 18022 miles out of it
Installed this tire 2/18/12 at 18831 Miles .... just replaced it (8/9/13) at 36853 Miles (18022 Mile tread-life). Flawless performance for my Daily Commuter Bike (2000 Honda VFR800 Interceptor) RAIN or SHINE. Still had just a little center tread remaining (see Photo) and I probably could have squeaked out another 500 miles. Front tire (installed at the same time as this one is still good and not yet ready for replacement. I'll post my review on that tire when I replace it. GREAT TIRE .... cant go wrong with this rubber.

Highly recommend tire for traction performance
My third set Nd will not purchase another tire. I ride a Versys 50/50 highway and paved canyon roads and the traction on these is second to none. Front getting me ~ 12k miles and ~5k on rear. I am getting less miles than most on the rear, however the performance is worth it.

The bike handles better than ever!
I have a '99 Kawasaki Concours ZG1000. She is a "Sport-Touring" bike that was built from the Ninja 900. This tire was recommended by other riders of this bike so I went with their experience and I am glad I did! The tire has made a huge difference in handling and the bike remembers it is descended from the Ninja Sport Bike! I am VERY pleased with this tire and can't wait to find some curvy roads to zoom around.

Too early
The problem with most tire reviews has to do with timing. The time at which you are prompted to write a review is when you've just purchased the tire. At that point you know little or nothing about what the relationship will end up looking like.
I popped this Pilot Road 3 on the front of my BMW K1200RS just before a long-ish road trip. Put 2000 miles on it over a weekend. Tire rode great, handled what little rain I saw and didn't go flat. More than that I can't really say. But the out-going Road 2 could have done the same. It was mostly slab riding, so traction wasn't much tested.
I do now have a bit of a hum coming from the front end but I can't tell if it's the tread pattern, or a wheel bearing on the way out.
If I remember to check back in 8000 miles, I'll have a better feeling about whether I've bonded with the Pilot Road 3s.

This is going on a ~400#, 80hp air-cooled Ducati used for casual sporty riding and commuting. Modern sport touring tires are better than the best sport rubber from 1998, so it only makes sense to use something with all the grip but better longevity and wet grip.

D D on Feb 21, 2016
PR 3 front and rear are the best combination of grip and miles for faster riders who like the turns. Freeway PSL cruiser go with PR 4, but you lose grip to gain a questionable few miles. IMO, always use the PR 3's.
Bud C on Jan 11, 2016
In my experience, the Michelin Commander and Pilot series tires work the best for the combination of longevity and wet weather commuting.

Roy D on Jul 12, 2015
These go about 10,000 good miles, used 4 or so so far. Michelin Radials for all 130,000 miles I've put on my bike. Near the end of their life they are still pretty round side to side and there isn't much stepping from block to block (up and down every couple inches)

After a few months of looking as forums, reviews, and prices, these seemed like the best choice for my style of riding. This next season I'll be riding to camp for 10 weeks of work, then the following season I will be doing a cross-country trip from Minnesota to California.

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.

Sincerely,

Wesley Norton
A shopper on Oct 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
My primary riding method is commuting. I try to avoid riding when there's rain - only rarely get caught in the rain. I'm looking for good grip on dry, and wet roads for those "just in case" moments, to increase my confidence. Would the PR3s be a better fit than the Pirelli Diablo II (I ride a Suzuki SFV650)?
A S on Apr 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I ride a 2006 Honda ST1300 and just changed my PR3 front that had 21,000 miles, the rear PR3 I took off last year made 13,500 and replaced it with a PR4 that went 13,100. Not bad for a heavy wrist. They preformed great in all weather, I commute 230 mile a day in all weather. Going with PR4's all around now.
would a 120/70ZR18 (59W) fit my CBR 929 RR 2001?
A shopper on Jul 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Nearly every online motorcycle tire store has a "Brand/Model" selector chart, or drop-down-arrow "walk-you-through" feature. Use one of those, and your head!
I am curious as to why the front tire and rear tire tread patterns meet the road in opposite directions? The most narrow part of the rear tire tread pattern meets the road first. Yet the most narrow part of the front tire contacts the road last? Why the diff?
RidinIsLivin on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The front tire main purpose is braking while the rear is all about grip under acceleration. So opposite needs. That's the way I understand it.
Hi, I'm trying to buy this for my 2012 DL650 ABS - currently 110/80/19 - but I don't see this size listed. Please advise?
