    Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.


    The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

  • Michelin Pilot Road Radial innovative radial motorcycle tire structure with two-ply at 75°, bound by a longitudinal zero-degree crown ply. This casing promotes comfort.
  • Versatile rubber mix with 100% silica reinforcing fillers, providing the ideal compromise between motorcycle tire grip and mileage.
  • Michelin Pilot Road Radial compounds front and rear motorcycle tires have been optimized to promote balanced wear on both wheels.
  • Semi-elliptic motorcycle tire profile provides progressive, stable handling on highways and back-roads.
  • Progressively tapered grooves channel water away from the motorcycle tire contact patch. Semi-slick motorcycle tire tread pattern at the shoulder combines wet traction with reassuring feedback on dry roads.
  • W-rated for speeds up to 168mph.

Long lasting tire

Comments On Nov 09, 2012:I purchased these for a cross country trip on my Suzuki 1200 Bandit. They went 9600 miles no problem and I will probably get 12000 miles out of the rear,and more out of the front.I ran the bike with 3 Givi hardbags and camping gear on the back seat.

Great Bang For Your Buck!

Comments On Jul 19, 2011:I love these tires! I do alot of commuting to and from work on a daily basis (75 miles a day minimum). I bought a set and threw them on at 7k miles and I'm at 15.5k miles and still have AT LEAST another 3k left out of them. Great grip all around. Will Buy Again!

Good tire, great price

Comments On Oct 18, 2010:These tires grip great, I've run them to the edge and never had issues with them slipping out during low temps or rain. I had only ran full-on sport tires prior to these, I found that the Pilot Roads take a bit longer to warm up and require a little more input to flick the bike back and forth since they are more mildly shaped but they feel much more stable on slab because of it. I've got about 1500 more miles out of them than the previous sporty tires I've run including over 600 hard miles on them since hitting the wear bears and still no cord showing.
