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

excellent Tire have these on a few bikes...these usually cup before wearing out..but i push very hard in corners...prob me and bikes not tires April 10, 2014
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. March 31, 2014
Definitely worth the money This is my 2nd set of Michelin pr3, and I'm not sure if I'll switch to other brands any time soon. They have excellent dry and wet traction which let's u corner with confidence. March 31, 2014
MIchelins Pilot Road 3's PR #'s are smooth as silk and the grip seems great on my FJR. We have a couple of guys who ride together and we hit the twisties pretty hard, I have less than 1/2 inch of chicken strip and I love these MIchelins. I only have 2000 miles ont them but they still look new. I can't imagine anyone not being happy with these tires. March 11, 2014
excellent tire...needs longer life excellent tire in wet and dry..only complaint is a weird cupping on rear...tires were inflated to proper temp 100% of the time..they are installed on my 2011 Kawi Concours 14..not sure if it was the tires (2 sets did this or the bike due to the very heavy rims) not a wear issue either.. happened early. But other than that great tire..id still buy them April 10, 2014
Seems like a good tire I'm not the real tire tech, to me if the tire holds air and does not slip in a corner, it's doing it's job. This tire is doing that just fine. I've only got about 900 miles on it, and most of that is Washington rain which does not seem to impact the grip of the tire. February 17, 2014
Great rounded profile The variable radius profile of the tire dramatically improved the corner entry characteristics of my bike. February 10, 2014
Well worth the money While I don't have many miles on this front tire, the rear has been doing quite well for wear. Other than that, this tire is awesome. Can recommend. January 14, 2014

Shawn G: Michelin makes the best tires, why else??? Apr 6, 2014
A R: I have used Metzeler Z6, Dunlop Road Smart, Michelin PR3, and Pirelli Angel ST on my Sport Touring Motorcycle...the Pirelli Angel ST was by far the most consistent throughout its 6K Miles and always stable as the Rock of Gibraltar when hanging off in swervery. I'll never go back to the Michelin PR3 because they were always squirming around when I needed them to be solid! Mar 27, 2014
Charlie M: Great Tires Mar 26, 2014
Kevin S: Great tire - the standard, makes any bike better! Mar 21, 2014
Mark C: I prefer these Michelin Tirs Mar 18, 2014

Benjamin B: good reviews Mar 13, 2014
Richard G: Second set great year round tire. I ride year round in western Oregon. My bike is 600lbs + I'm 200lbs+ and between the tires and the abs brakes it has saved me more than once. Mar 7, 2014
Michael L: I chose these to replace the OE tires on my 2010 BMW R1200RT. Feb 11, 2014
Richard J: Great tire in rain, good wear characteristics, howls a bit after 50% wear, but not as bad as some other tires. Feb 8, 2014
Michael B: The mechanic who works on my bike recommend these tires. Jan 25, 2014
robert r: cause I bought the back one Jan 25, 2014
Thomas V: I Picked These tires Because They We're The Best Rain Tires I Could Find At An Affordable Price. I Have Ridden Over 5,000 Miles On them Including Severe Raining Conditions At Freeway Speed And Never Lost Grip Unless I Full Throttled It. These Tires Also Have Great Longevity And Grip With The Dual Compound. I Not Only Recommend This Product But I Will Be Purchasing A New Set When Mine Wear Out. I Rate This Product 5 Out Of 5.

raymond o: I rode to Daytona, then a large loop out west stop by Stugis back to St.Louis. rain or shine great tire Nov 22, 2013
Mark L: Alyxmoto suggested it Nov 18, 2013
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
George W: I was looking for the best all weather tire set for my 2012 Multistrada Touring. I looked at the new Angel GT's, but in the end I went with what appears to have the best wearing life, and all weather tractions for the Sport Touring bike. Nov 12, 2013

Have gotten caught in some heavy downpours on winding roads,
these tires preformed perfect.
Just under 12,000 miles on the front tire before replacing.
Oct 14, 2013
Duane B: This tire is terrific, this will be my 3rd set of PR3's. I have no reason to even try another tire. These are the perfect match for the type of riding I do. Lots of commuter miles, and a fair amount of spirited riding with friends and family. Oct 14, 2013
Brian R: Have used Michelin Pilot Sport tires in the past with great results. A friend has these on his BMW sport/tourer and loves them. You can't beat the other user reviews on these either! Oct 5, 2013
Jeff B: I want my bride to be safe as well as have fun riding with me. Michelin is the best, hands down. Sep 30, 2013
Huey W: Traction and ability to remove water when riding in the rain. They corner well and hold up good. Sep 28, 2013
Wilson L: Time for a new front for my ST1300. PR3 on rear, replacing current PR2 on front with PR3, based on recommendations of several other ST1300 riders I know.

~1000 miles later - tire is doing fine. No negatives to report. No wet weather riding to date, but no reason to suspect the wet traction would not be excellent.

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

RICHARD F: new technology Aug 9, 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.

Brian C: I always put a more aggressive tire on my v strom but i have the street pilot 3 on my super moto wheels for my KTM 690 only have about 1000 on them but like them so far Oct 24, 2013

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

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.

Eric D: I've been thru several sets of tires on my VStrom, these are by far the best handling on the street that I've tried. They're not as good offroad as say the Anakee but I don't do much anyway.. Oct 26, 2013
