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.

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
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
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
Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trail Tires This is my second set of Pilot 3 Tires. They hold the road great & I get a lot of wear out of them. I will purchase them again & again. I put on about 20,000 miles a year on my Triumph Tiger. Nancy Gulfport, FL. January 11, 2014
Looking Good Have about 5000 miles on a new PR3 rear. Tread on the center has gone a little flat, but I commute more than anything. I have done a 150 mile trip through some twisty mountain roads and the grip was great. Hasn't rained here for a while so I can't really comment on wet traction. The softer edge compound is very nice. February 24, 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

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

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

Gerry C: I would recommend the trail verision. I put them on my 2005 R1200GS and loved them. I want a set for my 2013 R1200GSW. Oct 11, 2013
