Information and Details about the Michelin Pilot Road 2 Dual Compound Tires - Z-Rated - Rear
made by Michelin
Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires were developed using Michelin's newest technology and resulted in an innovative design for maximizing wet traction. Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires are constructed out of a special compound that enhances cornering power and road grip to give a sure footed feeling on the road. Although Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires are excellent in wet conditions, they are unbeatable on dry roads as well. Environmentally sound, patented Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires will make the next road trip on your bike feel like the best you've ever had.

Until now, you had to make a choice: the grip of a softer tire - or the durability of a harder tire? But thanks to Michelin 2CT dual-compound technology, MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 2 tires offer both grip and durability in one tire. By integrating a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders with a wear-resistant compound down the middle, Michelin gives you the best of both worlds. The Pilot® Road 2 tire is like two tires in one.

  • Best combination of wet grip and tread life of any comparable tire, confirmed in independent testing*
  • Rider confidence in challenging conditions
  • 12 sizes covering 94% of all sport touring radial fitments
  • The only dual-compound tire in the sport touring segment
  • Innovative front and rear tread designs
  • Winner, 2009 Motorrad and Moto Revue sport touring tire tests
  • 180/55 ZR 17 rear also available in a 'B' version, specifically designed for loaded sport touring or riding two-up.

    Transformed K1100LT - Buzzard   MI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grip, Grip, Grip, and Grip Smooth, Progressive Response, too
    Cons: Too New To Say

    Just put a set of the Pilot Road 2s on a 1993 BMW K1100LT I picked up recently. This matched set of Michelin radials far outperforms the fossilized mix & match bias tires the motorcycle had - handling consistency and ultimate grip are far superior. Will follow up later in the summer to update on their performance after I've toted up more than a couple hundred miles.

    Ironbutt on a Hayabusa - Paul   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very durable, good grip
    Cons: [None]

    I put new MP Road 2 tires on my 2011 Hayabusa in preparation for an Ironbutt challenge. After 5600 miles in 5 days, almost exclusively on freeways, the tire is only now showing some signs of squaring off. A similar tire on the same bike and on my '99 CBR11XX lasted close or more than 10k miles. These are perfect for long trips even on such heavy bikes.

    si - Tom   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: smooth riding
    Cons: none

    Total difference from the old tires. When coming to stop steering is not affected . Other than that can not say any more since I rode the bike only 100 miles.

    PR2's ROCK - MotoChooch   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High mileage tyre, awesome wet grip, even wear...
    Cons: None to speak of,... order these

    My 3rd set of these badboys on my R1100S, getting over 10K on each set of these and couldn't be happier with the price, performance and high mileage... I ride with a few guys and we cover serious ground all over the U.S., prolly do more time in the saddle in rain and downpours than the 'chrome plated farm equipment' rides in sunshine... this is where these tyres really perform... You can ride these aggressively and still get even wear, front and rear, although there's slightly more rubber left on the front at change out time,... Try em',... you'll like em'

    Great Tire - Charles, Orange Park. Fl .   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long Life
    Cons: None

    Got 19,000 miles on the rear tire before picking up a nail riding a Daytona 675. Ride a lot in the rain in Fla. .

    Good Tire - John in SC   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good handling, quite, long life.
    Cons: May be replaced by PR#

    The dual-compound construction works very well, the shoulders of these tires stick well in the turns and the center portion lasts longer than other tires I've ran in the past. Because 30-40 of my riding is two-up, I went with the B-rated for heavier loads....got almost 12,000 miles out of the PR2s. I started to try the PR3s when getting new tires, but why change what works well already....I bought another set of PR2s

    My Review - Bugs   KY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Tread Life, Traction
    Cons: None

    I have run these tires over the last several years. Rear tire on the St1300 i get 10-12K miles.Front 12-16k.

    pilot road 2 tires - greg   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good milage and grip
    Cons: exspensive compaired to other sport touring tires

    I have a 2nd set of these on a 97' rf900 and got very close to 9000 miles. Great tires and I ride them like I stole them. So what I'm saying is, I didn't baby them to get the high miles. A

    Michelin PR2's - Joe   OK Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Amazing grip and feel for the road.
    Cons: None

    These tires rock These make my 08 Speed Triple feel lighter and steering is much more fluid and responsive. I've only put a couple of hundred miles on 'em so I can't comment on wear but for the price I have no doubts I made the right choice with the Michelin PR2's. Thanks Comp Acc.

    Perfect tires for me - cruisinnc   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: sticky, tread life, good, quiet ride
    Cons: Are there any

    I put these on my previous bike and they were great. When I upgraded to a bigger bike I knew these were what I would put on it. I'm not what I would call agressive at all and I take care of my bike. I have consistently gotten at least 10k from every PR I've put on. The one exception is a foreign object that I picked up.I didn't go for the PR3. I'm so happy with these I figured I'd spend the saved money on another toy for the bike. I can't imagine you would regret putting these tires on.

    Michelin pilot road 2 - Jim Timmons   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long lasting tire wear 10,000 miles or more on sport bike
    Cons: [None]

    Great tires. Best money spent , did not hesitate to reorder new pair

    Awesome - The Dark Knight   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Love the Tire and it performs amazingly in the turns
    Cons: none

    Shipping was fast and will buy from Competition Accessories again.

    Awesome - Chad Roden   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: These tires are grip the corners and handle the rough highways we have here
    Cons: None

    I would highly recommend these tires to anyone that wants a perfect combo of sport handling and or cruising. I have a 2010 CBR 1000RR and these are the best tires I've had on any of my bikesThanks Competition AccessoriesOKC Rider

    IBAs & Twisties - Lenguado FJR   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great all around Super Sport Touring tire Durability AND grip
    Cons: Out of Production. . -

    These are STILL awesome tires Only tire I will put on my FJR these days. Since the PR2s are being discontinued by Michelin gone to PR3s now, I just ordered 3 more sets of the PR2s. I think I am good for tires for a while I still ride IBR Extreme rides and still go up into the mountains a couple of times a year. I still get 10K plus miles per set even with the long distance heavy bike riding I do, and have complete confidence in these tires in the wet and in the twisties. No worries with dragging toes or pegs in the corners. They have the grip and durability needed for true Super Sport Touring riding.

    Michelin PR2s- Buy Them - Greggo   AL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long Lasting, Great Handling
    Cons: None

    This is my second set of PR2s for my Concours 14. I use my bike mainly to commute to work about forty miles each way, mostly straight roads. My first set of PR2s lasted aproximately 13,500 miles front and 12,000 miles rear. These tires have no weak points- only good things to say about them. They handle great and last a long time. These tires are very economical too, when you consider how they will double the mileage from many competing tires.

    Oldie but a goodie - TedF   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent wear and cornering grip
    Cons: Kind of pricey

    If you are in to sport touring and looking for a good sticky tire that will last over 10,000 miles stop right now and add this to your cart. I have used these tires on my Honda blackbird, FZ1, and now on my BMW K1200GT with always good results. Always check your tire pressure to ensure you get the best mileage out of them and you will be pleased all throughout the tire life. You can't go wrong with these boots

    Michelin Pilot Road 2 excellence - fasterspider   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent tires
    Cons: None

    The Michelin Pilot Road 2 tires are the best bang for the buck here in So Cal where we do not get much rain which makes the PR3 overpriced overkill. My last pair of PR2 tires lasted me almost 14,000 miles on my modified 79 CBX and I ride her like I stole her but, the tires never gave me a lick of trouble never losing traction in the canyons or the freeways.I cannot praise these tires enough as they are even better lasting tires than the PR3s which I had on my VFR1200F and only got 7500 miles out of them to be replaced with PR2s again.If you are going to spend money on sport touring tires and do not buy Michelin Pilot Road 2s, you should have your head examined.

    Michelin Pilot Road 2 Dual Compound Tires - Z-Rated - furduknfish   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good tractionfeel on highway at speed and in turns
    Cons: Not free

    Bought matching frontrear set for my 07 SV1Ks. Mostly do comuting to work 30 miles one way and tires feel solidstable at highway speeds. Grip seems better in turn and bends than old Pilot GT tires. Noticed they are bit narrower on rim than old tires but tire beads are fully seated. Put some dynabeads in and bike rolls smooth as silk. Hope to get alotta miles as advertised, this being the ultimate test.

    So far Love um - Tomttt   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good price, fast service, good traction
    Cons: none

    Have about 200 miles on them and am very happy. Smooth ride, stable, good feel, seem sticky. What more can you ask from a tire,

    Great tire - Fz1   CT Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long lasting, good grip dry or wet
    Cons: None

    On 3rd set of PR2s, have averaged roughly 7000 miles before replacing. Dual compound wears evenly and provides plenty of grip, great all around tire.

    Michelin Pilot Road 2 - RumRunner   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Wear, and feel
    Cons: None as of yet

    Recently installed pair of Michelin Pilot Road 2's. I went from another set of Dual compound tires that were OK but not the best. So far these seem to be wearing EXTREMELY well. It took almost 600 miles to wear the nubs off the center harder compound of the tires, and while I do ride in the twisties that is phenomenal. They give great feel and feedback when laid over in both the wet and dry. Inspire confidence even on the worst roads tar patches and what not. The shape allows you to get full use out of the tire as well. If you're looking for a dual compound tire I'd highly recommend these

    great mileage and great grip - sheldonc   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: High miles, smooth ride, great grip, cheaper than Dunlops
    Cons: Edges wore out before the rest of the tire, but it's not a con, more of a note.

    I've got these tires on both a ZRX1100 and a BMW R1100S and love them for both the miles I got from them, the grip and smooth ride. The BMW rear just got replaced at 8800 miles and sadly a bunch of that is boring straight road riding. I live in Southern Louisiana and the only close corners are on and off-ramps to a few bridges and hi-way exits so when at those I hoon hard. Accordingly the edges wore out a bit, especially on the left side got a long left exit that's a fast one but the grip there is excellent. I expect to get another 1000 or so from the front. It's begun to square a bit, but not nearly as bad as the front of the previous Roadsmarts I had. The ride quality is very good, in fact the best I've had from a Sport-Touring tire. Very good small bump absorbtion. I'm very happy with these tires and have no real reason to go up to the Road 3 as these deliver so well. Add in the free shipping and I'm all over the next set too

    Great tires - Brian   KY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Durability, Traction wetdry, value
    Cons: None

    These work great on my Thunderbird Sport. Excellent traction in rain or on dry roads. Durability seems not be an issue. Bought both at combination discount where else are you going to get front and rear tire set for under 255. Highest rated tires in German test for durability and grip when wet.

    NDavis  
    Been getting 11k miles on rear. Not just one tire but all 3 tires have worn that great on eac one. Wet or dry traction is superb.

    DonJet  
    Have spent 50 years riding BMW bikes, all of which have been modified to give maximum sport handling at speed. Never before have I been so impressed with a tire as I have been with this one. I've put 20K on my present rear, most of it in the mountains surrounding Phoenix, AZ and at good speeds with hard cornering on my 2003 K12RS which runs with Ohlin shocks fore and aft, and a lightweight Remus exhaust. I run once a month to San Diego on the Interstate as well, so I know I am using most of the tread in my riding. The center line of the tire still has another 3K left on it for sure. Truly amazing!

    Great all around tire - Budzrex   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Long life confidant handling
    Cons: Not as sharp on turn in as a full sport tire

    Out of all the tires I have run in the past 153000 miles this is the best all around tire I have used. Not the sharpest handling, not the best in the rain but so close that unless you are running the bike back to back on the same roads with either the best rain tire or the sharpest handling tire you will never know the distance8200 miles of a combo of Texas and Arkansas twisty roads and the hi way miles between Austin and North Arkansas

    Pilot Road 2 - HDH   OR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good grip, smooth predictable turn in.
    Cons: Haven't found any yet.

    Wanted the tires before the weekend. This didn't happen because they were shipped from their east coast location and a day late. Other than that the service was great and I love these tires.I replaced a set of Pirelli Angels that only lasted 5k miles. Hope these tires last a little longer.

    michelin pr2 - steve m   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: front and back wore out at the same time. the wear was even and gradual.
    Cons: only lasted 5000 miles- that is better than the other tires available for the k1200gt.

    great even wearing tires at a great price.

    good tyres - FSUTL   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: sticky easy install without machine
    Cons: shipment was not in a box leaving tires susceptible to damage during transport. they were taped together.

    I've had these on a little more then a month on a TL1000r and love the sticky only had one cold break away and bike handles amazing much more limber being a bigger bike. In the past I have been a diablo fan but my mind is changed i love the michelin brand. I will update when ive got a few thousand on the tires to see how well they do riding all the flat strait roads of Florida.

    Can Never Go Wrong with Michelin - Dan   NJ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Tire Life
    Cons: Could be a bit cheaper

    I've always replaced my factory tires with Michelin Tires. So far, I have tried the pilot powers, the PR3's, the 2CT's, and now the PR2's. I have to say, the PR2's have to be the best bang for your buck. I threw these on my k1200s and so far I love em I've only put a couple hundred miles on them so far, but seeing how long the PR3's lasted on my ZX10, I figured I should get at least 9k on the rear, and a lot more on the front. The turn in on these feel great and so does the stability while your inside the corner. HUGE improvement over the stock conti's that were on there. I like these a little bit better than the PR3s because the front end feels more stable while your in the turn. Sure, the rain performance is slightly less than the PR3's but then again I am usually a fair weather rider. I will probably stick with this tire on this bike.

    recreational rider - Kevin S.   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: handle very well , good deal
    Cons: [None]

    tire had good reviews for milage which is the main reason I purchased them ..had dunlops before and can say these tires make the bike feel much more nimble ..

    Pilot Road 2 18055 B - G Bohart   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Traction, mileage
    Cons: mileage

    First let me explain my riding style. With 35 years of riding experience enabling me, I ride my 2011 Ninja 1000 extremely fast, usually 2 up and sometimes with loaded Givi luggage. 3 hr stints at 90-100mph including hard cornering. I can get 5k out of this rear tire which is 2k more than any other Ive tried. Traction is great. They never slide, even in light sandy, sketchy conditions. Ive never had a flat on one. Highly recommended.

    SM Daily Driver - SM Type   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Controltraction
    Cons: mediocre wearlife

    Use this tire on 09 Husky SM610. Ride 70 miles per day, 4-5 days weekly on combination twisty back roads and town. Tire is very predictable. Great traction and control when playing and stable on rainy days. 3000 miles is the most I've ever gotten out of them. Average is 2000 mls. 4th one in a row. So far my favorite all around tire.

    Pilot Road 2 on Speed Triple - SLL   WY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Holds up well to sport touring on a 650 - will try it on the beastlier Triple.
    Cons: Don't know yet - haven't mounted it and now there's snow on the ground...

    I had to replace the rear tire during a long road trip sport touring - on the sport side on my 650cc bike, and a Pilot Road 2 was the most suitable I could find while out on the road. I broke it in for about 100 miles, then let 'er have it for the rest of the trip. Grip was very good, the tire would warn you of impending bad things not just break loose like some other Michelins, and wear when I got home was not noticeable. Since the Metzeler Sportec M3's on my '06 Speed Triple feel alright, but wear away quickly, particularly the rear tire, and particularly in the center. I commute on the bike as well as Sunday ride and longer sport-touring rides 2,000 miles in a week for instance, so unfortunately the center portion of the tire gets worn down in commuting. Plus it's about a hundred miles before I hit ANY curves of consequence. Wanted to try the Pilot Road 2 OEM on the Triple was Pilot Power, and see if they'd last a little longer, yet grip well enough.
