Threw a set of these Power RS's on my 06 GSXR 1k in California and blasted canyons for a week straight. Excellent grip at speed and with low corner angles. Got about 1500 miles of twistys, then pointed east and rode back to South TX. After 1000 miles with literally 2 turns in Arizona, I expected the centers to be flat, but they held up surprisingly well. Even got several more rides blasting twisty Hill Country roads before replacing them with another set.

I Ride the dragon and these tires rock. Many riders use this tyre. Especially the fast ones.
Let's be honest.... I'm a 49 year old guy, who's not nearly as fast as I once thought I was. With that in mind, I love the Michelin Power RS tires on my 2014 KTM RC8 1190R. The tires provide fantastic grip and better than expected wear. I will continue to purchase tires, as well as other motorcycle parts from MotoSport. MotoSport, offers great prices, fantastic customer service and on time delivery!
I must say this is the best feeling tire I have ever owned. The feedback from the tire gives me more confidence when riding those curvy roads. The shipping speed was also amazing from MotoSports!
With less then 900 miles on these tires, I noticed a split on the rear tire where the dual compounds meet. Michelin and motorsport.com refused to honor the warranty because my purchase was over 60 days old. I have since spoken with friends and other mechanics who claim that Michelin is aware of such defects. I have spent over $2000 on Michelin tires in the past 5 years and will never make this mistake again, nor will I ever place another order with motosport.com. see for yourself. I was able to inspect the severity of the damage after swapping out tire to confirm the depth of the split is to the steel belt.
This is an early review. I’ve only put a couple my hundred miles on these tires. I’m feeling the MotoGP technology in these. It transformed my bbikes handling. I’ve been running Michelin 2ct.I thought these are very good tires. I ran about 4 sets.’ I thought these were very good. Grippie. Different compounds on the edges. Pointy profile on the front. Quick turns ins good grip. Good in the wet. The Michelin RS are in a Nother category. This is a softer compound. I really like them. My only question is Mileage. Performance is outstanding. These would be On track.
Tires are very sticky.
I got this tire for my 2016 ZX10R and them are going very well, good grip; also they have a great customer service and fast shipping. THANK YOU GUYS
Very sticky and durable. The best time for the street and track day.
