You don't have to be world champion to get your hands on Michelin® MotoGP tire technology. Pilot® Power tires use a rubber mix that was originally developed for MotoGP racing, and a tread pattern that covers less than 12% of the tire’s surface. The result is a maximum lean angle of 50.6 degrees on dry pavement and 41.9 degrees in the wet, achieved with a stock sportbike. How did we do it? When your test riders are winning on 230-horsepower MotoGP bikes, you learn a few things about performance.
Rubber compound reaches operating temperature quickly
Incredible cornering grip
Impressive durability for a high-performance tire
Designed for high-performance sportbikes
Suitable for street or track use
MotoGP-derived rubber mix
Tread pattern covers less than 12% of the tire surface, for phenomenal cornering adhesion.
