Just had second set of michelin pilots fitted to kawasaki zr7s 17.000 miles on the bike, garage confirmed ist set fitted at 7500, couldnt believe it! the rear was squared off but still legal tread. front was starting to show little dimples in tread but also still legal, once new set fitted though such a difference to handling on the way home thought i had a new bike! rained almost all the way home also but the feel of the new tyres gave me great confidence. would definitely recommend to anyone.

I ride a KTM DUKE2 2004. I have only just replaced my rear tyre with the pilot road from a maxxis supersport. The feel of the bike is dramatically different, the tyre gives me more confidence throwing the bike in to tight corners. Only done 300 miles so far so i cannot comment on durabillity or value for money. (read more)

Since I have owned my VFR750 f-l, which has been 2 years now I have had 2 sets of tyres, it came with Metzlers Z4 tyres which were iffy but OK in the dry and down right awful in the wet but I could get to the edge of them,
Next was Dunlops, this was a mistake, awful tyre, the bikes balance was ruined, it felt like it was falling into corners although the dry grip level was OK the wet again was ropy.
I have recently put on a set of Michelin pilot roads, I have had Pilots powers on my... (read more)

Just fitted a pair of Michelin Pilot Road 2's CT to my CBR 600 F after having a pair of Continental attack , What a great tyre , I have only done 300 miles on them and already I am more confident on these then the last 6 months on another tyre. already trying to get my knee down. I mainly do weekend runs out on twisty roads and the tyre feels stable and planted, I cant really comment on how many miles i will get but should see at least 5000. I was seriously considering some bridgestones as... (read more)

'Michelin Pilot Road' are a very reassuring tyre, just make sure tyre pressures are correct as this makes a big difference, recommended and long lasting. Standard fitment by honda on my 06 / 600 honda hornet, what a great tyre, they give good feedback and good grip in the wet, just got back from portugal over the pyrenees, tyres coped well in the twisties in the mountains and have lasted 7900 miles front and back, I ride fairly hard so I am suprised they lasted so long, will replace at 8000...

Long lasting considering (3,500 mile up to now), Hold the road well enough to get your knee down. I do a lot of motorway type riding as well as twisters and the wear rate is fairly even. I will replace them for the same tyre when the time comes, as I am very pleased with them and they give me plenty of grip. Good all round tyre for me and meet my needs so why change. Bike: Ducatti 999. (read more)

The Michelin Pilot Road is a good stable motorbike tyre that makes my lardy ZZR11 feel quite sporty as quite a few "sports" bike riders that I have gone past will testify. They last well and give good grip both dry and wet and last well too.
Just going to have a set of the newer Pilot Road 2Ct's fitted on Thursday so will let you know. Watch this space. (read more)

I ride a 2006 Honda Fireblade which I bought from new and came with Pirelli Corsa Diablo's. I got 4k from the rear tyre & 7.5k from the front which isn't bad. I then decided to go for a set of dual compound tyres as most of my riding is commuting on straight roads and the Pirelli rear would rapidly square off. My initial concern was weather I would still get good grip in the corners from DC tyre's as I still like to get the knee down on occasions.
I eventually chose a set of Michelin Pilot... (read more)

The Michelin Pilot Road tyres came fitted to my new BMW F800ST. I tested the same bike with a set of Metzeler SportTecs before signing on the dotted line. I was pleasantly surprised to get the Michelins, as you may know that it's a bit of a lottery what tyres you get when buying a new bike (I had hoped for a set of Continental Attacks). These Michelins make the handling and feedback of the F800ST even better. I didn't buy them, so I can't comment on price. They feel super-sticky to the touch... (read more)

The Michelin Pilot tyres grip very well in wet or dry conditions. They were as good as any tyre I have used, but they didn't have the life of the Dunlop tyres that I normally use.
I would recommend these tyres for 600cc motorcycles, but if you have anything bigger you would kill these tyres in a few dozen fast rides. If you want grip and life out of a tyre go for a Dunlop 208. (read more)

Very comfortable tour tyre, with possibity for sporty performance. Michelin Pilot Road provides spectacular grip in both wet and dry. Very good handling and stability at all speeds. Good balance between treadwear and performance. (read more)
