Michelin Anakee 3 Tires

The replacement for the crowd favorite Anakee 2 tires has arrived! Michelin has vastly improved the Anakee in many ways including wear, feedback and wet weather performance. The Michelin Anakee 3 Tires are a further blend of long tread life, balance and rugged adventure.


  • Performance that lasts mile after mile with a new silica tread compound yields even more mileage compared to MICHELIN® Anakee® 2 tires
  • Innovative tread pattern inhibits irregular wear patterns, while evacuating water, dirt and mud
  • Transverse grooves efficiently evacuate water for dependable wet-weather grip
  • Beveled lateral grooves help shed mud and gravel when riding off-road
  • Enhanced ride qualities and tire architecture engineered for easy maneuverability and precise handling
  • Amazing stability and rider feedback, thanks to a new high-rigidity casing
  • Indented tread grooves help to provide consistent lateral grip even as the tire wears
  • Excellent wet traction and an innovative silica tread compounds offer the best balance between grip and durability
  • Distinctive tread pattern pulls water away from the contact patch

Note:  Anakee 3 tires are Bias Ply unless otherwise noted (e.g. 110/80R19 59H is a Radial Tire). TT indicates Tube Type Tire.

Really impressed with these tires so far
This was my first order from Revzilla ... Very happy with these folks. A friend of mine has already ordered tires from Revzilla based on what I told him, regarding my experience with them.

I was both curious and a little skeptical of the unique looking tread on the Anakee 3's. Like many comments I had read, I didn't think the 3's would do that well off the pavement. I had been planning on trying a set of Anakee 2's, Having put 38,000 + miles on my 1200 GS, on another brand. (BTW I have been happy with my other tires, just wanted to see if I could find something better). I watched a couple of videos on the Anakee 3's and decided to give them a try.

New tires almost always feel great when you are coming off a set with 7 - 9 thousand miles on them. So how these feel down the road will tell the tale. I live in the Sacramento Mountains in south central New Mexico. So I am fortunate to have miles of twistys and sweepers on pavement, and lots of dirt logging roads, and gravel to ride. I have to ride 2 miles on a "marble like gravel road" just to get to pavement from my house. I went out by myself the first day and put 168 miles on them. As part of the ride, I rode up and down the 12 mile road up to the Sierra Blanca Ski area twice -6800 ft elev. to 10,500 ft elev. It is full of tight twistys, 180's and blind corners. With each trip up and down, as the tires got scrubbed in, I started hitting the corners harder and faster .. the tires felt better and better. I was really impressed with their grip.

I had 200 miles on them by the weekend. Since I had them roughed in and the "new tire slickness" gone, I felt confident enough with them to take my girlfriend out for a ride. The 3's did great. In fact the first long up hill (It is 1 1/8 mile) twisty and curvy the whole way) I startled her .. not intentionally. I have never tried to scare a passenger. I went into one corner leaning more than I ever had with her. Since we ride these roads a lot she is very familiar with that stretch of hiway. When we stopped for fuel, she said "Wow! thought you were trying to scrape your pegs! You have never leaned us so far over like that !!"
I always ride pretty conservatively with a passenger. The fact that these Anakee 3's grip so well, allowed me to ride a little more assertively with her. We rode 221 miles that day, accompanied by one of my riding buddies. Very happy with these tires. As I said earlier, the miles will tell When I have 6,000+ miles on them i will let you know how they have performed. I'm attaching a couple of photos. One of us coming down a rocky road riding 2 up. The tires never slipped once, I came down sitting on the saddle, rather than standing on the pegs because they gripped so well. The other is from a ride in the Capitan Mtns on a 29 mile ride. They were great on that ride also had 2 short water crossings, some soft sand (not deep) Have not been in rain yet so can't say anything about wet traction on pavement.

Excellent on road - good off road
I purchased these tires when I bought my 2009 BMW R1200GS - that was two years ago. I have put 8,000 miles on them and have taken two RawHyde off-road courses/trips (so have extensive experience in off-road and challenging terrain.)

On-road, they corner magnificently and handle securely in wet conditions. They are smooth and I have gained significant confidence in these tires.

Off-road, they certainly handle mundane conditions such as dirt roads and two-tracks. The only time I have had issues was with very muddy, slick conditions I encountered in a 20 mile stretch. Other riders had TKC-80 type tires and had an easier time. I never went down; however, I was completely drained at the end of that experience. To be fair, though, everyone was uncomfortable (but none of the others could believe I made it through on street tires.)

As I said, I have put 8,000 miles on the tires and just bought a new pair. The wear was not significant; however, I had in my mind that this would be the mileage where I would replace them. I am very pleased that I am replacing them while they still have significant tread life. Great tire.

Excellent 80/20 tire choice for a big ADV bike
I ride my Yamaha Super Tenere off-road often but also ride long distances to out-of-the-way locations. I needed a tire I could put lots of miles on and still have off-road traction when I got there. I live in Oregon where it rains a lot and needed good wet-weather traction, especially in the winter. My Anakee 3s are doing all of this for me. I've got 3000 miles on them with no discernible wear yet. They have good all-weather grip and smooth predicable handling in all conditions. They are also very good on the forest roads and trails up here in Oregon. I'm totally satisfied.

Excellent on pavement. Bad off road
If you are 100% street then this is an excellent choice. Grip, handling and cornering are excellent. I used the Anakee IIIs on a 2015 R1200GSA. The tires are wonderful in the twisties. Wet weather grip was excellent. They are confidence inspiring on the tarmac.

The problem arises off road. The tires aren't well suited to gravel and mud. It was so bad that I decided to swap them out for a set of Heidenau K60 Scouts. Now I have reasonable (but not great) on road handling and significantly better off road handling.

I mounted the Anakee 3 on my F800GS after my stock Pirelli scorpion trail got worn off at 6500kms!
The Pirelli were absolutely horrible, I've lost the front wheel many times in low speed turns, they did not inspire confidence at all on the wet and going off-road would have been suicidal.
The Anakee 3 are a huge change from those awful stock tires, on all scores!

The grip is excellent, they warm up very quickly (i live in a hot country though) and they never ever made me lose confidence.
Lean angle, agility and stability are excellent. They are not too noisy nor vibrate (Both wheels have been balanced). I read it was an issue for some but honestly there is nothing to complain about and I am very sensitive to noises.

Another thing that surprised me is the improvement on braking and the later intervention of the ABS (on dry), compared to the Scorpion Trails.
Wet traction is good (for my riding type on wet roads), I never tried to push them to the limit, but I've never been surprised either! I live in the Caribbean and the rainfall is intense and daily, their wet performance was an absolute must for me and I am very satisfied in that regard.

I only did mild off-roading on good dirt roads at mid speeds so far, I can't really tell how they would behave in mud or heavy off-roading.

I would recommend those tires to anyone with a big dual-sport bike doing 90/10 on-road/off-road and looking for an awesome grip in all conditions, on asphalt and good dirt roads.

I initially didn't like their design that much compared to the Anakee 2, but now that i see them on my wheels I simply love them, they look very aggressive and technical, it may sound stupid but even this design inspires confidence in how they can perform on the road.
In my 10 years of riding I've come to a never contradicted conclusion: Michelin is a manufacturer you can trust.
Thanks Revzilla for the great prices and service!

What a Surprise!
I'm not one to review products normally, but this tire is well deserved of one.
I have a 2012 650 Vstrom, Purchased in late Feb 2013 and have logged 11K miles thus far in preparation for a cross country journey. Bought these tires at 3K miles to replace the stock Bridgestones, which never felt quite confident underneath.
Here in NC, I've had plenty of mountain twisty rides, wet rides and a fair amount of off road dirt miles on these tires, with confidence abound.
Today, took it over the top (hence the review). At 8K miles on these puppies, I was off road in one of our National Forests in NC. It was a great road, which was taking me towards a deep water put in for kayakers. As I neared the trail's end, I should have paid a bit more respect to the last road sign.." Road Maintenance Ends Here".
Following a 4X4 with hefty suspension, I make my way towards the water.. and the grade starting to go down, down, down hill.. and the ruts got very deep, like whoops on a motocross course. Prior rain, also added some mud in the deep sections.
All I am thinking is: will my ABS screw me over and make me race towards the water for a big bath and "How am I going to get back up?"
Well the ABS hung in there somehow, yet getting back up was not going to be without those muddy ruts getting the best of me... a fall to the side in the middle of one deep rut had me a bit stranded. I had a kayaker give me a hand in uprighting and stabilizing the bike while I got my muddy self back in the saddle. Clutch, throttle, man diaper and some forward momentum, these Anakee 3's carried me right back up this precarious monster. Once safely at the top, found a place to dismount bike, calm the nerves and pay some serious respect to my bike and the tires which totally exceeded my expectations.
Anakee 3's ROCK!!

Less street performance than expected
I ride a 2012 BMW 1200 GSA about 90/10. I push the limits on the street, but only get from A to B when off pavement. Anakee 3 on the back was an improvement for mileage and being able to dig into softer surfaces over Anakee 2. I have been disappointed with Anakee 3 on the front though. Its limits are noticeably less than the Anakee 2 for sport bike like street use. The front also felt nervous and was noisy for the first several thousand miles of highway travel. Worst feature though is the way it loses feel over tar snakes. On the plus side, it seems to resist washout better through loose gravel and does well in the rain. Bottom line is that for pushing hard on the streets, Anakee 3 on the front does not suit me.

Huge improvement over OEM tires
Bought the Anakee 3's after exhaustive research (it's the way I roll# and recommendations from friends that ride similar big ADV bikes. The stock tires on my Triumph 1200 Explorer were very underwhelming. They had decent mileage, but sub-par grip, to the point where I had no confidence in them on twisty tarmac.

The Anakees 3's have comparatively excellent grip, both wet and dry, and on a 1,200 mile trip through the Arkansas twisties, my confidence was restored, to the point that my boot soles now have a nice bevel, and the tires are wearing fine, with plenty of tread left.

The only con I have with these is that they have a shallower profile, so that transitioning between left-right-left quick sharp turns takes more effort than the OEMs. The bike is no longer as flickable as it once was #such that a 600-lb ADV bike can be considered "flickable"), so there is a little more planning involved in setting up multiple tight turns, but the excellent grip of the Anakee 3's is a fine tradeoff, one which I'll happily live with.

Good all-around tyre.
This is a replacement tyre for my 2015 1200 GS. I managed to squeeze out 7,000 miles before hitting the wear bars. This tyre has very good traction through many different riding environments during its short life. After maintaining recommended inflation pressures, this tyre managed to square off at around 3,000 miles.
With that said, I would recommend this tyre for street biased riding.

Howl on corners at 60 mph
The tires seem like they grip ok however they howl so loud on corners at 50to 65 mph that it is unbearable. I wear a full face helmet and industrial earplugs and the noise from the tires is unbearable. I cannot wait for them to wear out so that I can change them out for another brand.

I've tried a variety of brands in the last 10 yrs. Of them all, the Michelins have always delivered superior performance. Consistent 10k to wear out rear and 13k to wear out front on my Weestrom and Super Tenere. Excellent sport touring grip, these guys have never slid in the wet and do a decent job on the fire roads.

The last set of Michelins (Anakee 2) wore bad, big bumps on them, very noisy, vibrates do to the beat up tread pattern and the entire tire (front and back) came from the factory with a cut or sipe running around the entire tire (center). Michelin rep said "that's weird". Normally I wouldn't buy again from a company that doesn't stand behind their product but I've always liked Michelins. I have them on my new F250 and the Nissan Juke, so I'm trying the new Anakee 3.

The tire size 120/90x 17 has a "TT 64S" in the description, what does it mean?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The 120/90-17 is a rear tyre which requires a tube. The load rating of 64 means the tyre is rated to handle a maximum weight of 280kg. The speed rating of ’S’ means the tyre is rated to a maximum speed of 112mph/180kph.

@Paul M - TT=tube type, TL=tubeless.
I bought an Anakee 3 90 / 90 - 21S F for my 2009 dr650 I'm having trouble getting the tire to bead .I took the tire to a motorcycle shop and they couldn't get it to bead ether .really like the back Anakee tire.?
David B on Jul 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Also took mine to MC shop to mount on KLR650. Kawi mechanic of 30 years who works on everything including drab bikes said side wall is especially stiff. I think it was a team effort at the shop as three employees all bitched about the install. Still trying to dial in PSI for front and rear for best ride, and wear. Most forums A3 psi discussion is related to larger heavier bikes than your and mine. Advice; take to another mechanic. So far I like them for a 80/20 tire that I ride 100% road. Good luck!
I'm looking to put this on a KLR 650, which has 90/90-21 on the front and 130/80-17 on the rear. My main worry is that the only sizes on the anakee 3 for the front are bias play and the only ones for the rear are radial. Will this be an issue if I put them on?
Edward S on Mar 17, 2016
Michael S on May 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not, I used a tube with my anakee2, have not used the anakee3 that I bought as yet but see no reason why it can't be used with a tube. I have a 2007 KLR650
I am looking to put these tires on my Vstrom 650. The OEM tires were a speed rating of H, the rear Anakee 3 is not available in an H but is available in V. I know it is fine to upgrade the speed rating but im torn by the fact that the front tire size is offered in both an H and a V…..Why would you want an H instead of a V? Should I get the H in front and V in rear, or get both in a V because the rear is not offered in H?
Michael Y on Mar 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I doubt it will make any difference since it is unlikely you'll be riding over 130 mph. That said, I'd personally get a matched set of V rated tires b/c the price difference is minimal and I'd want what the manufacturer has designed to work together.
Is this tube tire or tubeless?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2017
Seems pretty basic, but I don't see anywhere here: Is this a tube or tubeless tire?
Robert K on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Michelin Anakee 3 tires were mounted tubeless on my Suzuki V-Strom.
how would these perform on my KLR650, I ride it as a commuter mostly, sporadic fire trail runs upon occasion.
A shopper on Feb 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I would agree with Stromtrooper. I have these on my GS, great highway tire, no complaints on packed dirt. It will get squirrely on loose gravel turns. Not a real big deal, just be aware of your speed and position if hitting a turn on gravel with these tires. Straightaways no big deal
Recommended tire pressure anakee 3?
A shopper on May 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the motorcycle and what is recommended by the motorcycle manufacturer, not the tire manufacturer.
Sorry...misspoke on the above question. I try to avoid interstates, and do mostly twisty sweeper backroads, but sometimes for time or whatever the slab is the only choice. So, think Hill country NW ark, paved Colorado state roads, that sort of road, with some can't-be-avoided interstate. sorry for the confusion. Ideas?
John D on Oct 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've found the Anakee 3 to be a good all around tire. I'm in Florida and like that it remains planted well during our downpours. We don't have much in the way of twisties. It is predictable on fire roads / gravel backroads. 99% of our riding is paved to be fair.
