The market’s best grip*

The factors that determine a motorcycle tyre’s sporty credentials include grip and manoeuvrability, as well as handling during changes of lean angle, under braking and when accelerating hard. MICHELIN came out on top in all of these areas in the Motorrad Test Centre test*.

 

* According to a series of tests carried out by Motorrad Test Centre in October 2016 at Boxberg and Neuhausen tracks (Germany) using a BMW S1000RR equipped with 120/70ZR17 and 190/55ZR17 tyres, comparing the new MICHELIN Power RS with the following competitor tyres: Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3, Dunlop Sportsmart 2, Continental Sportattack III, Bridgestone S21, Metzeler M7 RR.

 

MICHELIN Adaptive Casing Technology+

The use of a single ply means a less rigid crown, while the shoulders are stiffened by folding the ply over itself.

Outstanding tyre life

In an independent test, Dekra Test Centre found that a set of MICHELIN Power RS tyres last at least 33 percent longer than its main rivals*.


* According to the results of tests carried out by Dekra Test Centre between January 31 and February 22, 2017, based on a BMW K1300 R equipped comparing Metzeler M7RR, Pirelli Diablo Rosso III and Bridgestone S21 tyres with the MICHELIN Power RS (front: 120 70ZR17 / rear: 190 55 ZR17).

Enhanced wet weather grip


The MICHELIN Power RS delivers more grip on wet roads compared to its predecessor, the MICHELIN Pilot Power 3**.


** In an in-house test at Fontanges in December 2015 and July 2016 on a BMW S1000RR, the gap between the two types of tyre was three seconds per lap in cold weather and one second per lap at a temperature of 28°C.

kinhsh - October 12, 2020

j like to change types of tires for new experiences with my Honda VTR SP2. But this tire was the wise solution because lasted many kmrs ,grip at sudden front brakes was good and rear grip was good .And very important it is very comfortable .A compromise only at grip at slippery roads compare with a tire that last 5000 km as the racing tires.

Fantastic Tyres

R1sk - July 28, 2020

I put these on my R1M last year and covered over 6k miles. These included a couple of track-days at Silverstone, two tours to Europe and commuting in horrendous downpours. I have found them extremely confident inspiring in the dry or wet. PPE deliveries have finished off the back tyre with some squaring off. But that's only in the last 1k miles of 6k miles. Highly recommended on a 200 bhp bike.
