  • Michelin road/track tyres

    Looks like I can't get a new power pure for the cbr rear and the option is a power super sport.
    Anyone used these? My bike does 90% of its miles on the road.

    Wouldnt pilot power 2 or 3 be a better option?

      I have the Super Sports on the SXV...

      Two thumbs up from me and I'll be going back for more...

      Very confidence inspiring tyre...

      Grips long and hard with plenty of warning that you are coming to the limit...

        Pilot Power 3 is the replacement for Power Pures

          Seriously Michelin need to get a new tyre naming person. Pilot pure, power pure, pilot power, pure pilot penis power, WTF?

            Power 3s are good.

            If you do less than 10,000km / year or so (i.e., you're replacing tyres less often than once a year), maybe consider something stickier.

              So the power pures have been updated? Just picked one up for $60 only done 1000Ks.

                Yep apparently power pures are no more.
                The pilot power seems to be about half the price of the super sport?

                  The Pilot Power 3 is priced similar to the Pures (which they replace).
                  The Supersport is grippier and more track oriented.

                  edit: I've used the Pures (a few years ago)...I've not used the others.

                    Supersports are the shit! Fkn love them as a road tyre! Quick warm up, reasonable feel and grip in the cold (unlike pures, ggrrrr), very similar to the bridgestone r10. Much like. Also, the cup versions are quite good on the road and as sticky as supercorsa sc's on track.
                    yes, i am ignorant
                    yes, i am a prick
                    no, i don't care
                    you make me sick

                      So I went to the Michelin website, apparently the Power Supersport is not compatible with 2005+ R6???

                      Anyone has some experience with tread life on these? (road usage)
                      look where you want to go~

                        Yeah, get an easy 4000km out of them on the road if you don't just freeway commute.

                          There's a brand new Bridgestone RS10 available for litre bikes (190/55 or 200/55 rear only i think) - supposedly a little more road biased version of it.

                          Was going to get some for the 600 but press release only shows 190 or 200 rear.

                          I'll confirm with Pete about them tomorrow at T4B (getting some more S20s on the blade). He has them available.

                              Dropped into t4b for new tyres on the 1000, pete confirmed RS10s are available in 180/55.

                              Will chuck some on the 600 next fortnight (PP3 on the 1000 this time).
