Special Notes:

  • When selecting new motorcycle tires, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage. Please use our vehicle drop down selector at the top of this page to assist you in choosing a tire for your vehicle. Always refer to your owner’s manual for correct tire specifications for your vehicle.

    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.

    Featuring Light Tire Technology (LTT) the Michelin® Power Pure™ motorcycle tires are some two pounds lighter per pair than other comparable sportbike tires, without compromising durability or performance. LTT reduces un-sprung weight and rotating mass, benefiting acceleration, braking and grip. With Two Compound Technology (2CT) the center compound withstands aggressive acceleration and braking, while the softer shoulder compound helps ensure outstanding grip on road or track. Wider 2CT shoulders compared to other Michelin® tires mean that most or all of the contact patch is made up of softer, grippier rubber when the bike is leaned into corners.
  • Provides ultimate cornering confidence and handling precision.
  • All new 2CT tread formulations for phenomenal grip.
  • Aggressive longitude tread grooves optimize wet performance.

Comments On Jan 10, 2013:These tyres are great, they have exceptional grip through all conditions. Great for mountain riding due to being a dual compound tyre.

Takes the bike handling to another level

Comments On Nov 17, 2012:I recently replaced the standard Bridgestones on my GSXR 750 with these Michellins and the cornering and handling is unbelievably better! very soft and sticky sides when they heat up. I highly recommend them next time your shopping for new tyres.

I'm excited to get these on my bike!

Comments On Jan 18, 2012:I typically liked the Pilot Power 2CT's but I think these will be even better with a thinner medium compound strip and the softer compound on the sides...what that means is that you get in the softer, better performing compound earlier in the turn! The middle compound is still there for long, straight trips...sounds great to me.

Race tire for street! Super Sticky......

Comments On Apr 29, 2011:I can't believe no one has put up a review since these tires have gone on market, which by the way is not that long ago, but i figured everyone would be drooling all over them since the Power 2CT's have always been pretty popular....
Anywho this tire is amazing it is waaaay better than my old michelin pilot power! The old Michelins werent bad they were road long mileage tires. These puppies have soft sticky rubber that u can feel with ur hands and see the rubber kinda get gooey once their warm, This makes it so i almost never have my rear tire slide out or skip during hard braking/acceleration/turning. They have a sweet agressive tread pattern with plenty of water channels for wet weather grip.... Theyre light! as the site states i can confirm by picking mine up it was way lighter that my old one (LTT (r)
It will obviously wear out faster but then again this isnt a grand touring cruiser tire, its a raceday ready track tire for the street at a great price that im shure are right up there with the pirelli rosso's which everyone is so in love with...
anyways if u grab a pair write something on here so the rest of us can see what everyone's saying about these
