The perfect tyre?

Matt - March 30, 2021

I like these tyres. Michelin appear to have achieved the best compromise yet with regards to life and grip. They last well and grip tenaciously wet or dry. Good enough for a track day, whilst having good life on the road. They also provide a really solid stable feel to the bikes to which I have them fitted to (especially at high speed, whether cornering or in a straightline. Very very confidence inspiring.

Not an upgrade from RS

Brennen - March 2, 2021

If Michelin offered a buy-back program, these tires would be shipped overnight to them. Warm up time on street is horrible even at 78F. Warmers took 3x longer than my RS set at the track. Was beyond disappointed in these tires, will be buying a set of power GPs or Cup 2s. Should change the LACKING description of these tires. (excellent wet grip) woooo great info. These are a glorified TOURING tire, nothing more. Cant say anything more, tires didn't have more than 500 miles on them before i took them off.

Hi Giese, thanks for your feedback. Not sure where the recommendation of the MICHELIN Power 5 tire for your application originated, but it seems it is not the proper tire for your intended use of on-street and on-track as the MICHELIN Power 5 tires are designed specifically for street use and not designed for use on-track. You are correct that the DOT approved MICHELIN Power GP tires, designed for 50% on-street / 50% on-track usage, would be more suitable for your use application. While the MICHELIN Power Cup 2 tires are more capable on-track, please keep in mind that their 90% on-track / 10% on-road may not offer the longevity you desire when riding on-road. Our recommendation is to consult the Dealer or online retailer whom you purchased the MICHELIN Power 5 tires from to see if they can offer some assistance with providing you with the correct tire for your needs. If they are unable to assist, please contact our Consumer Care at 800-346-4098 as they may be able to assist with a pro-rated replacement of your MICHELIN Power 5 tire.

Great Sportbike tire

None - November 9, 2020

After running RS’s and Road 5’s on my MT09 and Road 5’s on my FZ1 I knew I had to try the Power 5 on the FZ. Immediately I noticed better feedback and less squirm in hard cornering than the road 5’s. The new profile of the front is definitely noticed and very predictable but doesn’t drop off too quick and grip at full lean is superb. Haven’t ridden in rain yet only a heavy dew covered road surface and couldn’t even tell it was wet. Longevity will be determined but I don’t consider high mileage a requirement for a high performance tire. Highly recommended.
