Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and welcome to our video review of the ever popular Michelin Pilot Power 2CT. This has to be one of the best selling sport bike tires of all time and for good reason. Nothing but good things to say about them for the most part. They are a sport tire that is at home or on the track or on the street, Michelin does have some more aggressive tires that are more for the track days and if you are looking for that application then Michelin has more tires available. If your the guy that hits the track occasionally and doing some more aggressive riding on the rode then the 2CTs are definitely one you are going to want to check out. First thing about Michelin Pilot Power 2 CT's, the 2 CT's stand for dual compound so dual compound technology. What that actually means is you have a firmer compound of rubber in the center portion of the tread. The crown of the tire is a firmer rubber and then it drops down to about a 20% softer rubber compound on the side. That is true for both the front and rear tires. So if you were going to rate this softest to hardest in terms of rubber compound then the softest part of the tire is going to be on the front so you have the shoulder of the front tire which is going to be your softest rubber and then you have soft to medium compound on the center of the front so you have that really good braking performance. Obviously the front tire is not put under nearly as much stress as the rear tire when the power is being put down. So the medium compound you find in the front is what makes up the shoulders on the rear tire. Finally in the center of the rear you have the firmest compound out of them all. One thing about Michelin is they have a very soft carcass and I can sit here and push on the tires and you can see how soft they actually are. What this does is it makes it easier for the tire heat up and warm up very quickly. They are also tire pressure sensitive so definitely keep it in check according to your motorcycle or the manufacturer. Once you have the right tire pressure dialed in obviously there are a lot of other things to deal with handling on the bike and they perform really well. They are pretty much the benchmark for sport bike tires they have been around for a long time and there are definitely more sticky tires out there, there are other tires around that will last longer but if you want a tire that is tried and trued and is going to perform really well in a variety of conditions the Pilot Power 2CT is definitely a contender still even though it has been out for a while now. One thing to point out when you are looking at these the curvature of the tire the actual profile these tires have a very high center crown and then they drop off rather rapidly to the sides and then they kind of have a flatter profile towards the shoulders. What that does is it helps get a better feel for the bike in the transitions like when your turning in its going to make the bike feel very light. Then you have a really confidence inspiring patch of rubber on the shoulders that has that softer compound rubber and it will lay down a really nice big contact patch and give you a really good feeling especially with the Michelin name behind it. Its a good solid product. Lets talk about the tread pattern, it is definitely classic you know you probably have seen lots of other guys out there running these but they provide you a really good compromise between a solid slick and lots of rain grooves which are used to evacuate water and other debris away from the tread. You have lots of rain grooves that are criss crossing go all down the center of the tread. It is not so much going to be an issue if you push really hard. They are going to promote even wear and give you a really confident feeling. The front is actually grooved or siped a little bit more. You have a more dense ratio or what they call the land sea ratio of the tire, they are more grooves per square inch of the tire on the front than the rear. Definitely a great set of tires, I cant speak of them enough. You can jump on our website to check the current pricing of them and we have many sizes available.

Information and Details about the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Tires - Z-Rated - Front
made by Michelin
Pilot® Power 2CT motorcycle tires add two-compound technology to the already renowned Pilot® Power range. While 2CT technology originated in MotoGP racing, Pilot® Power 2CT tires are intended for the most demanding sportbike riders, who use their bikes both on the road and for track days. Its tread surface is divided into three separate areas, incorporating two different rubber compounds. This helps provide numerous benefits in terms of dry grip, lean angle, handling and progressive acceleration and braking on wet surfaces.

Features:
  • Track-day tire that's equally at home on the road
  • Real MotoGP technology from the tire company that introduced dual-compound tires in GP racing
  • 20% softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip
  • Lean angles up to 51.2° measured on Michelin test track
  • Precise handling and feedback
  • An extension of the Pilot® Power line, not a replacement
  • Winner, 2009 Motorrad sport tire test
  • Ships from South Carolina

    Work fine and last a long time. - ppruitt1   WA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good feel. Low price. Stick fromthe get go.
    Cons: Could probably soften up the middle of the tire.

    My second set of the PP3s. Got about 8,000 miles off of the first set and that was with center tread still left. I love the twisties but I am not an aggressive rider. That being said, this is the first tire I've ever had to replace on a daily commuter because of edge wear. I think Michelin could soften up the center a little bit but that is me just being picky. Love these tires

    Michelin pilot powers - trackjunkie750   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    Nice tires with good grip all the way to the edge. they don't last long 5k but these are not touring tires either so that is the compromise you will have to make.

    Great tires - Vegas   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticky Sticky Sticky
    Cons: Nada

    I have these on my Hayabusa and cannot tell you how much better they ride than the OEM Bridgestones.3k miles on them so far and it looks as if I will get more than twice that before replacing. And yes I do at least two or three 35-135 romps every ride. I thought the back would have been toast by now but pleasantly surprised.

    The Benchmark - Big O   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: good handling, good adhesion
    Cons: Good price at CompAcc, but not cheap

    I mounted Pilot Power 3 16060-ZR17 on my 2002 Suzuki SV650. I only replaced the rear tire as the Michelin Pilot Power 2 on the front had plenty of life left. I loved the PP2s on the bike and read that the PP3s improved tread life and wet weather performance, so I tried it. Rode on some wet roads this past week with no problems. Too soon to tell on the better mileage, but the tire handles great and sticks well in the corners. I still have a small chicken strip left as I write this, but am confident in the tire and expect it to disappear on my next romp up Mt. Lemmon. The PP3 on the rear seems well matched to the PP2 on the front.

    Sticky, grippy, great handling - Greg   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticky, Heats up quick, Improved handling, Improved my confidence
    Cons: None yet

    The OEM tire on my Buell XB was a Pirelli Diablo Rosso. That was the only previous tire I had experience with. The first time I swapped my rear tire, I used the OEM Pirelli. When purchased new, the Pirelli tire had a weird layer of sheen on it, and on my first ride out the back tire slipped and I had my first low side fall. Even once the Pirelli was broken in, it was hard, would take a long time to heat up, and did not inspire much confidence from me. Every time I turned sharply, I would clench my butt and become hyper focused to make sure I didn't low side again, even months after the tire was broken in. After a long ride, touching the Pirelli compound, it was be lukewarm at best and stiff. Initially, I had installed the Michelin on the front, and noticed an improvement in tracking immediately. I knew I had to get a rear ASAP, and after a screw lodged itself in my other tire, I went straight for the Pilot Power 3. The Michelin Pilot Power 3, when installed brand new, did NOT have a plastic sheen, nor was the compound stiff, instead the rubber was sticky, supple, and grippy from day 1. The tire heats up very quick, and becomes very grippy, inspiring confidence, and carves up the road while I flick the bike from left to right. The Michelin has helped me regain confidence when turning and leaning the motorcycle. Every time I get off the bike, I place my hand on the rear tire and feel the warmth retained by the compound and it gives me reassurance. As a rider that has experience with 2 brands of tire I can say that Michelin Pilot Power Pirelli Diablo Rosso. Barring any sudden defect, which after 1 month of daily riding I see none, Michelin is my new default tire, they have earned a customer for life. 55, 2 thumbs up.

    Execllent Tire - John L.   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Execllent wear and great traction.
    Cons: Not for expert or pro level track use.

    Michelin Pilot Power Motorcycle tires are and execellent tires. I have a set on my Hayabusa and they stick to the road like glue. Having a Hayabusa I have gone through many sets of tires before putting on the Michelin Pilot. I just got a set for my track bike and as I expected another great investment. For the money and product I will continue to make this the tire of choice.

    michelin pp - Strafer   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great grip & ride
    Cons: wears out too soon

    I have run this tire almost exclusively since it's introduction on all of my bikes & have nothing but praise for it's grip in wet or dry & the way it rides over less than perfect tarmac. The only downside is it wears out too soon, 3500-4000 is the best I get out of a set but it's a trade off I'm willing to accept for the excellent performance.

    Longevitiy vs. Grip - Tronz   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great grip, affordable, and
    Cons: There are none. .

    I have put 2500 hard twisty miles on them so far and they are just beginning to show signs of wear. They have plenty of grip for a streetlocal twisty therapy runs. Predictable, and well built. They are priced right. You'd be hard pressed to find better grip and longevitiy for a better price. Buy them best bang for your buck hands down Tronz.

    Cons: [None]

    I have used these tires for many years now and despite the new powers and pilot roads I stick with these. The grip well, are good in the wet and am getting around 9k miles on a set. So why change a good thing that works.

    These tires BEG you to corner harder - xpertsnowcarer   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Dual compound, fast warm up time, impressive in the water
    Cons: None yet

    Those of you, like myself, that had and loved the Pilot Power 2CT tires and travel any faster than 75MPH on the highway, know the center of the tire wore pretty fast. You could even see small pieces of tire balling up along the center after a simple cruise. With the Pilot Power 3, that is no longer the case. The center isn't wearing out as fast as the 2CT. The tread pattern is better, leaving the corners of the tire looking like a slick tire. Let's face it, no one leans that far over in the wet, especially on the street with paint everywhere. I started off with the tires a little too inflated 38psi both, but the handling was superb and great for highway cruising. The tires are very responsive to emergency maneuvers.. But, that Psi would be a bit too stiff for canyon lovers like myself. I keep them at 32F, 33R psi for the canyons. I have yet to go to the track, but Id probably have the tires closer to 30F, 32F psi. All depends on how hot the track is though. Ive used these tires for 3000 miles already on a 2004 Honda 919. I have peg risers, so I've reached the entire lean range. They are very confidence inspiring to the experienced rider, so I definitely recommend them for the weekend warrior.

    Pros: It is round and rolls....
    Cons: It doesn't cook me dinner.

    Awesome tire, not much more to say about it. I have full confidence when I go into tight turns that I will have the traction needed. They also do pretty well with the mileage.

    Track and Canyon - NigelS3   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good grip, inexpensive, great road feedback
    Cons: Wear quickly

    I use this tire on my Triumph Speed Triple. I use it on the track and in the canyons only. I don't commute at all on this bike. Grip is awesome. Love these tires. They are always on sale so I don't mind that they wear fast, about 3,000 miles from a rear. Going to try the pilot power 3's next though.

    Great tires - Irishduc   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grip, warm up, feedback
    Cons: Looks, longevity

    Been riding with them for 500 miles. Grip is great even right from the get go. Full lean has a lot of feedback and grips well when feeding the throttle at lean. Braking and turning inspires confidence. Haven't taken them to the track, all street on a stock Ducati 848 evo. Got a screw on the edge of the tread on the first 60 miles...plugged it and the tire still has missed a beat. They don't look as good as the Pure's, in my opionion, and the rear seems to have worn kind of quick center tread but that could be due to hard launches from lights. I would get these again. For the street, I like them better then my factory Pirelli Supercorsa's.

    Michelin Pilot threes - buck   OR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: so far this is a great tire feels better than the battle axes I used to use
    Cons: none to speak of. But the tire will not last longbut that is to be expected with a soft compound tire

    when I first got them put on my bike I went for a ride on a winding road they grab the road . but with the soft compound these tires will not last long but I would rather have a tire that didn't last long and grab the road then a pair of cheap tires that would allow me to slide into a wall a tree a rail Or under a car. Anyone who put hard rubber tires on there bike.deserve what they get

    Sticks to the road like your balls stick your leg on a hot day - vampcaff   WI Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticky, sticky, sticky
    Cons: Not the best wet condition tire

    These are great tires, I was sceptical about the dual compound at the beginning but once I got these bad boys on the bike my outlook changed. These tires are great and you can really feel the bike grab in the twisties. That is until it rains. Still handles well with the wet but you can't get the bike leaned over far enough to get to the softer compound. Not sure how they work for commuting since I only ride the bike for fun and track days. But really isn't any tire able to commute, maybe not the most comfortable ride but hey why not grow a pair and just ride All in all these tires rock

    Outstanding street tire. Have ridden on multiple flagship tires from different companies in the past this one is by far my absolute favorite. Once you have the pressure set up appropriately this tire provides serious confidence inspiring grip in any condition at any lean angle.

    Great Tires - DonW   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Stick like glue in the corners. Smooth on highway.
    Cons: None so far.

    I ride an FJR1300 to work and back everyday. About 40 miles altogether. I was used to the original tires that came on the bike, Bridgestone Battleax. They seemed like good tires until I got the Michelin Pilot Power 3's put on. I am amazed how much difference there is. I'm not afraid to push the corners and they are very smooth on the highway. Very good buy. I would recommend them to anyone. I have about 450 miles on them so far and can't say anything negative about them.

    3rd set - skurvydmf   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Trusted feel and grip
    Cons: [None]

    I bought these to replace the OEM Pilot Powers that came on my 2006 Ducati S2R. The original tires lasted 10k miles, 12k from the 2nd set, and I got 14k from the 3rd set. You're thinking impossible right I know, no one believes me but my service tech. I keep my tire pressures at 32psiF, and 34psiR and I guess I'm just not heavy on the throttle since I mainly use my moto for commuting. But rest assured, I've always trusted these tires enough in the twisties to get rid of the chicken strips Competition Accessories always has the best deals on tires and I just bought a set of Pilot Road 3s from them since I've relocated to a more tropical climate where I'm pretty sure I'll get caught in the rain more.Thanks again CompAcc Always the best service and prices

    Michelin PP on R1100S - John   NH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: very smooth transition from side to side, softer over cracks, bumps
    Cons: [None]

    These are the first sport bike tires I have ridden in the past 10 or so years. I normally use sport-touring tires for their longer life.But I decided to try the Pilot Powers on the new-to-me Boxer Cup. I found that they seem to roll from edge to edge much smoother than ST tires, I don't feel the usual want to go straight sensation.I expect shorter life from these compared to Pilot Road 2CT, but so far they seem worth the trade off.

    The Best Tires - Slick Whip   DE Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Serious Lean, Immaculate Grip and Traction
    Cons: none

    This is the best tire that Michelin has made for the rider who is not a professional but still wants to ride like one. I can honestly say I was afraid to hit curves before but with these tires I have no fear. With these tires you can get low when you lean. Excellent tire There's no other answer.

    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.

    Compared to the straight pilot powers these wear like iron with no handling reduction tire does not square off after long distances on super slab, tire life is double I have a 150 hp at the rear wheel and this is the best bang for the buck. Linear predictable handling great breaking and wet traction zero issues never had a tire failure. Owned many pilots

    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.

    Since changing to these tires it has been like buying a new bike. Awesome! Got 6k miles on the last pair on my Suzuki Bandit 1250sa 2008. front one was still looking good but I always change both tires at the same time. Competition Acces. has the best service, prices, and speedy delivery. Wow, I felt like a dealer receiving my tires in two days. I also bought a new helmet from CA now. This store ROCKS and I'm letting everyone know. Buy with confidence you will be pleased.. This store has exceeded my expectations. THANKS CA!

    Great Tire - NWms   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great price point, comfortable, great grip & wear, balances easily
    Cons: Will squirm at a moderate lean angle and in extreme heat wet grip could be slightly better

    Have a set front and rear on a '01 1200 Bandit. Have a little over 3k miles of mixed commuting mostly , touring, twisty roads, year 'round riding replacing Dunlop D414s. Comfortible ride with good grip as long as the lean angle isn't too extreme. Will also squirm a bit in desert SW heat but always very predictible. While damp roads are no problem, wet road grip while not scary in any way could be slightly better. Mounted and balanced very easliy and are wearing well. As long as the price is right the Michelin Power Pilot series is surely a superior tire.

    Pros: This is a good riding and good wearing tire
    Cons: Not being made anymore. Superseded by Pilot Power 3 which is a better tire but more expensive

    I am very satisfied with the Michelin Pilot Power series of tires. They ride well, wear well and handle well for those of us that don't push to ten tenths on the street.

    Awesome grip - Speed 3   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    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.

    Pros: New tread, great in corners
    Cons: Longevity, compound integrity

    Tires haven't lasted nearly as long as my old 2ct I will buy one more rear to stay with the same tire but as soon as my front is done I'm going BACK to the 2ct tires.

    Satisfied with this purchase - Onelongendo   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great balance, super sticky, good in wet conditions, excellent feedback, quick heat cycle
    Cons: ......

    I have only put 1K miles on them, so I can't yet answer to longevity of the tire, but the performance is fantastic I'm riding a RVT1000R RC-51 and first gear, dragging knee, WFO on corner exit I have near zero wheel spin. The come up to temp in a hurry and give great feedback wet and dry. I will buy an other set in the future 100The only reason I give a 4 star and not a 5 is because I have not put enough miles on them yet to see how they are going to wear and what kind of milage to expect from them.

    Great tires with an awesome profile and great tip in that greatly improves the flickable feel of a bike. Unfortunately you'll only get 2000-2500 mi on a liter bike if you ride moderate to moderately-hard.

    Pilot Power Tires - Steve V   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Traction, Relatively Reasonable Cost
    Cons: None so far

    I have only put 250 miles on these since mounting them but thus far, they are great tires.Good traction, even when cold. They rotate easily, so changing direction mid corner is effortless.Not sure about wet traction, I hate riding in the rain.No clue how they will wear. But they cannot be any worse than the Q2s I replaced. I got 3500 out of my last Q2 rear and 6000 out of the last Q2 front.

    Good, but prefer the Dunlaps - mt   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    Can't complain about these tires having had a great track day already. However, the Dunlap equivalent, which I rode several track days with last year, warm up faster and are cheaper. Maybe I'm just more used to them, but for the price difference and how close they are my mind is set on Dunlaps next time.

    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    I am a new rider, so I don't have any qualified comparisons, however, these tires are performing how I would expect. They ride smoothly for my 04 GSXR 750. I have not had any problems with them and for the price, I would definitely buy them again as a set. CompAcc offered a great experience in purchasing this product.

    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.

    I don't get all the 5 star reviews. - MrCrashHappy   VA Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Decent wear.
    Cons: The sidewall The sidewall

    If you're a 2K-or-less per year, relatively slow in the corners rider, go ahead and get the thing. I had to get that dag blamed rear tire off The Morrigan, 2010 Z1000. Michelin Pilot Power, still had about 1k miles left on it. Worst excuse for a sport tire I've ever ridden. The sidewall is too high and when pushed to the edge you get a high pucker factor moment of juddering while the tire deforms before deciding whether to lose traction altogether. What a POS. Highly recommended as a kiddy swing from the backyard tree. As a hooligansport riding tire, not so much. Thanks for nothing Michelin.

    This tire is sticky, real sticky! Heats up quick, handles corners like a demon and provides great wet traction! So why the 1 star you ask Well, just this year I've gone through 3 rear tires!! That's 3 flat tires in 3 months and 2 last year. They are so soft if you run over a tic tac you'll get a flat. In 20 years of riding and all sorts of tire brands I've NEVER experienced this! Now I travel the same roads 5 days a week to and from work and NEVER got a flat when I ran Pirelli or Metzeler sport tires. Same roads, same type of tires just different brands equals my conclusion, Michelin's are too soft. I love this tire but will NEVER buy Michelin again.
