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, MICHELINÂ® PilotÂ® 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 PilotÂ® Road 2 tire is like two tires in one.

Great Tire - Charles, Orange Park, Fla
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Long Life
Have 23,000 miles on front tire and still going Almost at tread wear indicators. Ride a Daytona 675. Ride a lot in the rain, its Fla.
I put this tire on 18k miles ago and it has been excellent for traction, wear and handling. I'm ordering my replacement today!!! Not had a tire to do this well and would recommend it for anyone!!!
Good Tire-Upgrade TO PR3 next - Jerry, Bel Air, MD
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Great in rain and dry
Cons: Defined squirrely handling when worn
Have 8500 miles on the PR2s on mt 2000 RT1100. Rear has plenty of tread left but front has bad crown wear on left side. Really catches road irregularities and moves the font end around. Am ordering anew front tire and when the ear is gone, will order a set of PR3s to try. The pr2 is a good neutral handling tire.

PR2 on my 2008 BMW K1200GT has been as good as or better than other brands. But after 6,000 miles it causes the front to wander on grooved or uneven pavement.
This problem is less than other brands used. I'm going to try the new PR3 next.
Mediocre mileage - Testriderchuck
Recommended by Reviewer: No
Pros: Good handling
Cons: Short mileage
I've got about 6500 miles and am into the wearbars. '06 Z1000, mildly aggressive rider, mostly commuter miles. Occaisional sprints into triple digit speeds. One up riding.I was really hoping for as good or better life than the Pilot Road. Alas Big dissapointment as I was getting 8 - 11K from them. I got maybe 6 from the original Battlax, about 3.5 K from a Shinko mistake. This tire was billed as longer tread life. Apparently michelin wasn't comparing it to the tire it replaced.
