  • OMG - Michelin Pilot Road 4 - waits for the bandwagon

    So hot on the tail of the Pilot Road 3's being the bees knees, I have just noticed that a well known US tyre supplier has now got Pilot Road 4's available!

    Their guffy writeup

    Pilot Road 4



    Pilot Road 3






    • Thanks to new XST+ sipes, Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires stop faster in the wet than any other tires in the category. The Michelin Pilot Road 4 tire stops 17% faster than its closest competitor on wet roads, and 24% faster on a wet slippery surface such as a pedestrian crossing or painted lines. All of which means, riding in the rain should feel safer and more secure, and a lot less stressful. With Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires on your motorcycle, you'll ride with more confidence - rain or shine, hot or cold, city or highway.
    • With improved 2CT technology, the Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires last up to 20% longer than the Michelin Pilot Road 3 tires.
    • Silica-charged rubber compounds were developed for the Michelin Pilot Road 4 tires. These compounds are specially formulated to provide excellent grip on a wide range of road surfaces, including painted lines and pedestrian crossings, making it easier for you to ride with confidence in virtually all conditions.



    Wow sounds like you just have to have them!!! They are pricey as well!

      Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

      when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

        considering all the details in the write up revolving about stopping power in the WET... this really means nothing in WA...

          Unless you commute every day! And the stopping on slippery surfaces is particularly relevant after a long dry spell.

            perhaps to combat the Pirelli Angel GT which was claiming best wet stopping power in class just a couple of months ago

              Looks like a power 3 with extra grooves.

                Looks like the equivalent of a 4 bladed razor to me. Excess complication for unknown actual improvement, but huge claims.

                  not too far removed from our wet weather race tyres which handle like swiss cheese in the dry.

                    Put 3's on my 10R commuter so obviously nothing too hard being done on it. But the rear was at 15k kms with 40% left when I got an unfixable puncher

                    Got a BT on at the mo coz they didn't have any 3's at the time. I'll definitely give the 4's a go.

                      It means that ridden like a demon, because of the large tread cuts and numerous sipes, it will wobble around and heat up excessively i reckon. A set of these under a Busa or '14 on a hard country ride in summer would be like riding in the wet...
                      Probs a good street tyre tho!

                          Never found the 3's to be more slippery than the 2's when hot on country rides on my Bird, if anything they felt like they stuck more and were better in the wet as well The 3's certainly seem to wear better

                            We might have to amend that to Staff and Admins don't ride. Far too many mods are on 2 wheels every day, it's spoiling the ambience.

                              A bit puzzled about some aspects of this forum. From time to time I see a thread of interest (rarely as my post history shows), but when I read some of the posts I really have to wonder if the aim is to post information of value to readers or is it just to increase post counts? Very little value was added in the last few posts beyond self embellishment. One poster has the title 'Moderator' and while I know nothing about the individual apart from his sorry avatar, I find it particularly worrying.
