The right track pressure, follow the guide! 

Correct pressure enables optimum performance levels to be achieved (*). The pressure should be set at ambient temperature and depends on the tyres you have chosen on your motorcycle. This will allow you to achieve maximum performance when riding, while at the same time ensuring your safety. Each tyre is developed using different technologies and has its own recommended pressure setting for track day use. Michelin gives you: a cold pressure and a hot pressure.
