Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trail 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.

X-Sipe Technology for adventure touring bikes

For trail bikes ridden primarily on the road

  • All-season grip and outstanding mileage for adventure bikes like the BMW GS, Triumph Tiger 800 and Suzuki V-Strom

X-Sipe Technology

  • Drains water away from the contact patch, while breaking through water film on the road

2 Compound Technology

  • For optimized wear, the 2CT compound distribution on the rear tire has been adapted specifically for trail bikes
  • Soft compound on the shoulders for cornering grip, harder compound in the center for durability

Note: The Trail version of the Pilot Road 3 tire is designed specifically for large, ADV bikes that are ridden solely on the road. They have a different compound makeup than the standard Pilot Road 3 Tires.

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.

I love this tire I put this tire on my Multistrada at 6k miles when the Pirelli angel gt's wore out. This tire is great. It's quiet smooth and has incredible traction wet or dry. I ride in the rain a lot and even got caught in the snow once. I had to replace this tire on my Ducati a 5k mile because of a flat tire, there was plenty of tread left. I've gotten 6k miles out of it on my Triumph speed triple.I don't even have to think about the weather with these tires, they just grip the road even if it raining hard.The fronts get irregular wear but not the rears, they wear nice and even.I live in the country so all my driving is highway speeds, county roads and expressways.

Solid set of tires These Road Pilot 3's were a much needed upgrade to the worn out stock tires on my 2010 Concours. So far after a couple thousand miles I really have no complaints about these. I've been in the rain and the tires felt solid. Dry grip seems more than adequate. As long as the overall tire live end up being respectable I don't see why I wouldn't buy these tires again. September 16, 2014
11K miles and sacrificed NOTHING. Excellent tire. Replaced the stock Battlaxes on my VFR1200 which gave only 5100 mikes. These performed every bit as well and lasted to 11K. Rode them all day in 50degree rain; no issues (with the tires.) Rode them all day in 96degree heat (with the tires). Rode them to, uh, REALLY FAST straight line, no issues. Rode them into deep quick corners; no issues. Having a hard time deciding to try the new "4's"; these were GREAT...not sure they can be improved on? September 14, 2014
Great road tire for BMW GS and others Very smooth ride and great grip and traction. I do not know how the tread life will be as I am still running with it, but it appears to be good. June 23, 2014
Liked PR2 so PR3 must be at least as good!? Installed this guy for a ride to the Tail of the Dragon, around the NC mountains and then back to FL. (Short for Flat Land) The tire worked fine for me. I was surprised to find the wheel needed 8 oz in one spot to balance it. Other than that, it gives me confidence with its traction and if it wears as long as the PR2 did (10k+ miles) I will be happy with it. It is on my DL650 with full bags so it does weigh more than stock by about 60 pounds. I would recommend this tire for this bike. When the SV650 needs a rear tire, this or the next version of the PR will go on it too. July 31, 2014
Great tires So far these tires are everything a tire should be July 28, 2014

Randall M: Really good question. Looks like you can get a 150/70 - 17 rear in either the Trail or the Non-Trail PR3, but the only way to get a 19 inch front tire is to go with the Trail version. I have both types. I am running the Trail version on my BMW GS and the non Trail on my M1300S. The tread pattern looks identical, but the profile on the Trail seems to be a flatter arch, and there is a asterisk on the Michelin data sheet that says something about the Trail compound being a little harder. Both styles feel great. Dry grip and rain performance are surprising, especially when compared with something like a Metzler Tourance. I'd for sure go with the Trail rear to match the Trail front.

A S: Michelin shows the difference being the distribution of medium vs softer density rubber between the standard and trail version. Front tires no difference. Rear tire regular PR3 20% medium rubber on the center arch and 40% softer rubber on either side, wheres as the trail version is 80% medium and only 10% softer rubber en both sides.
I would then expect better grip in curves with the standard PR3 rear tire, than with the trail...staying on the tarmac. Oct 14, 2013
Russell B: I have run this tire on a Super Tenere. I chose the trail due to the weight if my bike and load. I would say if you are riding 2 up or with a heavy load, go trail, if no load, go with the standard tire. I would also lean toward the trail if you are doing a lot of slabbing, and the standard if you mainly hit the twisties. Hope this helps. Oct 9, 2013

greg s: I would rate the Pilot Road 3 high from my experience, 04 V-Strom DL1000 all road miles. However, I would not feel confident with these tires in dirt. If you want to trail ride, I would go for the more aggressive tread. Oct 9, 2013

Robert S: I have a 2012 Vstrom 1000.I have a PR 3 Trail set on now and have been very happy with them.I also spend almost 100% on the street.It is a great tire. Oct 9, 2013

Richard M: not sure but I think your 800 has a19" front wheel ? Not sure they make the regular PR3 in that size. I have had good luck with both. Oct 9, 2013

DOUG M: I just mounted the tire approx. 800 miles ago. Hard to say about how long they will last. But I put about 200 miles in the rain and it had great traction. They were mounted on a V Strom dl1000. If the tire wears as good as pilot rd2 I got 8500 out of it, which is great Oct 9, 2013
Reply to DOUG Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
A S: Thanks for your input! I think Richard M nailed it. There is no front wheel 19" regular PR3 - only the trail version. Perhaps a combination of the Trail for the front wheel and the regular PR3 on the rear? Oct 10, 2013
