Why is this the right tyre for me?

Shorter braking time on wet surfaces

Thanks to new XST+ sipe technology, the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 offers a 17% shorter braking time than its nearest rival* on wet surfaces, and 24% shorter on extremely slippery surfaces such as white traffic lines and pedestrian crossings.

 

* Braking tests on wet surfaces and extremely slippery wet surfaces performed by Dekra in July 2013 with new tyres and tyres already used for 3,000 miles, comparing the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 with the DUNLOP Sportmax Roadsmart II, METZELER Roadtec Z8 Interact M/O, PIRELLI Angel GT Gran Tourismo, and BRIDGESTONE Battlax Sport Touring T30F sized 120/70 R 17 M/C 58W (front) and 180/55 ZR17 M/C 73W (back).

20% greater longevity*

With a rubber derived from 2CT technology that’s harder in the middle than on the shoulder, the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 lasts 20% longer than the MICHELIN Pilot Road 3. Thanks to its MICHELIN XST+ sipes, it benefits from chamfers which limit uneven wear and tear.

 

* According to internal tests performed in 2013.

Excellent grip

Thanks to its patented tread, MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 provides optimum grip no matter the motorcycle’s lean angle. It also allows for greater water evacuation.

Good and not so good

kpax - June 3, 2021

Good for PR4 is life and rain control. Bad is the fact that they begin to hum after 5 - 6000 miles. Cupping follows. Riding in the twisties is fair-not great. I typically ran about 10,000 mi. on the Michelins. I've purchased somewhere around 15 pairs of Michelin tires: PR 2, 3, 4 between 2008 and 2016 for BMW R1200 RTs Then I won a set of Dunlop Roadsmart 2. Much better overall. Roadsmart 3; even better. Now running a Roadsmart 4 rear and Roadsmart 3 on front due to offerings for BMW GS. Much better road feel from the Dunlops, especially in the twisties. Rain seems about equal. Life goes to Dunlop.

Hi Paxton, thank you for your review. Many factors can impact regular wear of a front tire starting with the proper air pressure, riding style (even braking, braking into corners, etc.), surface of the road, and condition of the components on your bike just to name a few. Once cupping begins, it is nearly impossible to correct so it is important to monitor and adjust subjective factors accordingly.

Awesome

Streety - June 3, 2021

Great all weather grip, rain hail and shine. Good compromise on durabilty and grip level with the use of dual compunds between the centre of the tyre amd side walls. Used on a big heavy Suzuki Bandit 1250, mainly for daily highway use to and from work, but also provides superior confidence on the twisties on weekends. Cant wait to try the Pilot Road 5! Ultimate would be a Pilot Power but unfortunately daily commute would not be suitable for longevity.

Excellent tire for my Moto Guzzi

Tommy - June 2, 2021

Been using the Pilot series of tires for years. Very satisfied with their performance, both wet and dry conditions. Will continue to use these tires for my Moto Guzzi LeMans until Michelin ceases to make them.
