Just went through my first rear tire on a cbr 600rr. Lasted 6500 miles of mixed riding. The front still has a good amount of tread on it. Handles very well and sticks to the ground great. Had the stock Dunlops before these and WOW!!! night and day difference. Getting the new tire mounted tomorrow morning.
Excellent tire. The didn't take long to scuff in and stayed planted through the whole process. I have these on an 07 SV1000S and they have about 2000 miles with very little signs of wear. They have a quicker turn in than the Bridgestones BT016 I have on my GSXR 1000 but give up a little high speed stability for it. They really gave my slow pig a quick feel. I don't think you could get a much better tire for around town riding or quick blitzes down canyons.
I was always a fan of the original Pilot Powers, but I'm just coming off a set of crappy Conti Road Attacks which I decided to try on my 99 Hayabusa. The Contis only gave me about 3K, and they were complete junk the entire time they were on my bike. Skittish, poor feedback. The bike never felt planted.
Moving back to the Michelins, I could not be happier with the 2CT. They are an instant confidence builder. I only have a couple hundred miles on them so far, so I can't speak about longevity just yet. But if I get 3,000 good miles out of them, I will be happy. It's nice to be back on Michelins.
I own a 2005 Benelli Tornado RS. I've got about 1,000 miles on these now and there's very little sign of wear. I rode an entire day in a freezing rainstorm and was pushing through deep puddles on the highway at about 80 mph with no trouble at all. I was more afraid than the tires were, they showed no sign of hydroplaning or loss of grip.
I've also done some deep cornering at high speeds in the mountains and have not lost traction once. I'm going to push the tires more this year and see how hard I can go on them.
I will never buy anything besides michelin. They're the best I've ever ridden on. Riding for 15 years.
Makes cornering a dream, I was getting on average 2.5k per set of pilot power - I switched to the 2CT and got almost 6K off of this set alone. Just ordered another set....
I put a set of these tires on my zx-14 and what a difference it made. These are by far the best set of tires I have used for high speed cornering through mnts.
one badass tire if your looking for something glue your bike to the road you need not look any more michelin is your answer michelin is the best tire around.
Awesome grip - Speed 3 CA

Pros: Price, Grip, Feedback.
Cons: 3k only from the rear. Power Pilot 3s are now available
I have used nothing on my '09 Triumph Speed Triple except these tires since I went through the stock ones. These are great tires. I ride only in the canyons and track days. The only downside is that I blow through rear tires, about 3k miles is average. Admittedly I do ride them hard, but still. Going to try the Pilot Power 3's next. I've heard good things.
over 2000 miles on a 2007 S4RS with just showing very light wear, should get 6k or maybe more. Great feel, good turning tire with good feedback
so far, 1200 miles on the tires and such a totally different feel of the road and cornering on my 1400 Connie. I really enjoy these tires and they also work well on wet surfaces. I only got 6k off of my OEM set of Bridgstones and hope to get at least that or more.
