Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Rear Tires

Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot® Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot® Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces.

Features:

  • Real Moto GP technology from the tire company that has won 15 consecutive GPWorld Championships
  • 20% softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip
  • Unprecedented lean angles: 51.2 degrees in the dry on Michelin's test track
  • Precise handling and feedback
  • Track Day tire that is equally at home on the road

Excellent Buy
Read the reviews and decided to go for it. This tire is way better than my previous pirelli that was worn down. The tire actually makes the bike feel safe in most all situations, fast or slow, hot or cold, wet or dry.

Soft tire, excellent grip
I didn't purchase this tire from Revzilla, but look forward to make a big purchase for track day; thanks to their #1 service!

This set of 2cts is one of few excellent sets that offer the best riding experiences. A lot has changed since switching from the stock Dunlops; like stepping in to a different universe.
Improved handling; IMO my zx6r is much more sensitive now than before. It doesn't take much effort in fact none to lean through cornering. Increase confidence; I was always cautious before entering a corner, almost afraid that I might lose the back end. I've made some mistakes but the 2cts are somewhat forgiving because of that softer compound on the sides and they stick well. Once or twice now I was coming through a corner and suddenly had to slow down. Well, one lesson I've learned is not to slam on the brakes, so I downshifted. The 2cts slid for a "a bit" and caught grip instantly coming down from 4th to 2nd in dry conditions. As for wet conditions, I don't want to push the limit there :P However, ridden once or twice in the wet both on stock dunlops and the 2cts...60 on a corner 2ct wins.

The only downside to this or maybe not is its truly meant for cornering than straight stretches. So don't drag race smh :P as I did many times. I'm left with half maybe less tread in the middle hard compound of what is left in the shoulders (see pic).

Great Tires
My first set of new tires (bought the bike with mismatched worn tires on it). Once broken in, These Tires feel AMAZING! Grip in corners is fantastic, and the ride is smooth as silk. Took them 400 miles not even an hour after I got them installed, and loved every second.

VERY. GOOD. TIRES.
I have had one set of pilot powers, two sets of power 2CTs and two sets of Power Pures. The Powers changed my bike like night and day from the stock dunlop ST tires on my SV650S. Quicker, lighter handling, much more confident grip and higher lean angles. The 2CTs did appear somewhat stickier, but not hugely noticeable either. Mileage comparison-wise, I moved from the DC area to FL, so after changing to the 2cts and driving mostly always straight, I'm not seeing any more mileage than Powers (4000mi) or Power Pures. The Pilot Pures are noticeably less treaded than the powers or 2cts, but do offer somewhat more eager maneuvering. Overall grip seems to be about the same, but the pures are approx 2lbs lighter which I think helps the poor stock suspension on the SV650. All 3 Perfectly suitable for the track, but really great street tires. I love them all, just depends on how many $$s you want to spend- Can't go wrong with any of 'em. How can you go wrong with a 51deg lean angle?

Very Good Tire
Great tire. Came on my S1000RR when I bought it, previous owner had used the tire. Definitely take a little to get used to. They feel, for lack of a better term, gummy when you lean them over. This is a good thing, as you really feel the tire biting.

Dry traction is great, never had a problem. Don't have any idea about the wet traction, haven't ridden in the rain much with the bike.

A quick thing to note, these are VERY sensitive to tire temperature I've found. Don't go and drag knees until you get some heat in them.

Overall, I would and am planning on buying them again. Only downside is they don't last super long, but you don't buy these to get 10k miles out of them. You buy them because they grip like a banshee.

Awesome Tires!
Awesome Tires!
My 2003 Yamaha R6 feels so agile now in the corners I put about 150 miles on them so far and they still have the Vent Spews on them!
I haven't had a bike in many years but with the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT'S on my R6 I'm starting to get my confidence back!
I'm sure i can max out the chicken strips in no-time! They have great feedback as-well,
I will definitely be buying them again! Revzilla is my new favorite online Motorcycle store.

Great tire as expected from Michelin
Always like to review after much use... I bought these tires mid season last year and was immediately impressed with the tire. By comparison, Ive had dunlop Q2s and a brand called Maxis I cant really find anywhere (not bad, but certainly just a cheap tire for a commuter, not great for hard cornering). This tire immediately inspired confidence in the corners, very responsive as well I got great feedback from this tire while leaned over. grip is great, wet and dry. Rode on absolutely soaked roads after a storm in VT (very bumpy roads which are sketchy in wet) and never felt any lack of grip. Tread life looks like what you'd expect from Michelin. rode around 2000 mi on this tire and will get almost another full season out of it (4-5k) these offer better grip than the Q2s IMHO and would recommend to anyone looking for a tire that hugs.

Already awesome
I bought this tire 2 days ago already like it and broke it in (100miles on it). Took some turns faster than I did on my 650 surprised me considering the nimbleness of a 650cc twin vs my Z1000 I have now. It hooks up way better than my Q3 did. No sliding in turns like the Q3. Rode in the slimy dew covered roads this morning no issues. I love it. Feels even more planted than my PP3s did. This weekend I am going to test the grip sideways under more power. But I don't hink it will drift like the Q3. I did a 100+ turn last night no issues and almost no squirm.
