Indeed Better Than The Killer 2CT

I'm a huge fan of the 2CT and these PP3 tires are supposed to be 4 seconds faster a lap in dry and wet and last 20% longer. I ran them at 35F/41R on Palomar Mountain and got comfortable real quick. They feel like bubble gum, give great feedback and stick excellent. I found myself braking less, downshifting less and just carrying a ton of speed into the turns. I took them past the 3rd lean angle indicator to their lean limit. There is a soft bevel of bubble gum rubber there. You can feel it when you're riding and it tells you that you're on the edge. I LOVE that about these tires. These are for sure better than the 2CT with better feedback and even better traction. That the edges of the tire did not get all super gooey and sticky like the 2CT tells me they may well last longer as well. Excellent tire. Highly recommend them.

Can't beat this good tire and good price.

I don't write a lot review and don't know much about tires.
But I got to say I'm loving how my bike feel after the new Michelin pilot power tire. I does feel a lot smoother riding and on the curves.
Thank you Motosport and Michelin for my new favorite tire.

Great New Rubber. Best Price

These tires came and were DOT stamped 2015 and 2016. Doesn't get newer than that! Great tires, the best prices, and the best customer service. Can't beat motosport!

As good as the single compound

These tires definitely last longer on the street than the regular Pilot Powers. Other than the increased durability, it's hard to tell a difference between the two. The profile is the same and grip feels just as good in the wet and dry. Worth the extra $$ if you're a commuter and want a high performance tire.

Best tire for the money.

I have burned through a lot of tires in my time and have yet to find a better tire for the money. When I go in to a corner I have never question my tires grip. Which is one less thing on your mind. Love them would recommend to anyone whom rides aggressive on the weekends and rides to work during the week.

Great tire

for the price, these are amazing, ive had 3 sets now. they don't last a huge amount of miles, but decent mileage at the least. awesome grip, often do track days and they rock out there. also ride highway for commute, and they hold up there too. Wet traction is pretty good, although its not often I ride in rain, when I do get caught out, I don't worry about traction issues. in my opinion, best tire out there for the price, and this model has been around for a while, so that should tell you theyre good.

Always been fan of the original PP

These tires to me are the best tires you can buy, very predictable and grips just as much as any other "street" tires. I have tried many of them and I am a big fan of these specially when available in 190/55 size.

Okay for the money

The tires grip really well. Don't care how the grip in rain as I don't ride in the rain...However my rear needed an extra 20 grams of weight over average due to the tire.... A little disappointed as far as that goes....

Favorite tires

I run these on an SV1000. The profile of these tires makes my bike feel nimble - like it wants to turn harder every time I go around a corner. On average I will get 5000-6000 miles out of a rear tire which is awesome compared to other tires that grip this well.

I always recommend these when someone asks me which tires to choose. Michelin is constantly releasing new tire models, but I think there's a reason that this one has remained unchanged for so long: price + performance = great value!

Not bad for the entry level Michelin tires

These are a noticeable upgrade from the Bridgestone BattleAx tires I previously had. They're a single compound tire as opposed to the 2CTs and Power 3s which are double compound. Check your tire pressure before each ride and you will be fine.

A: It is very hard to go wrong with a Michelin Pilot Power if you plan to be aggressive on it. It will still be sticky enough to do some spirited riding, but with the FZ1's power, you should have no problem breaking it loose to do some sliding around.
