Even after 3000 miles, a MICHELIN Road 5 tyre stops as short as a brand new MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tyre* thanks to the evolutionary MICHELIN XST Evo sipes.

Great Tires for Kawasaki ZRX 1100

Allen - January 22, 2021

These are extraordinary tires for my bike. Confidence inspiring, great traction, good stability, and exceptional handling. I ride about 10K miles per year, primarily for recreation. I am now on my second set; previously purchased Dunlop Roadsmart III, which did not perform as well or last as long as the Michelins. I have no issue with the GT version of this tire being too stiff.

Great handling wet or dry. Almost twice the mileage compared to 4 other quality brands.

1st set of PR 5 GT's

JWIII - December 17, 2020

Since 1960 I have used many different brands over the years . On my FJR's and 1200 RT's I have used 5 0r 6 sets of PR4 GT's. We always ride 2 up in the Blue ridge or the Smokies. We loved the PR 4"s. This new tire is just a s good and maybe longer lasting . I'm not sure yet. It is wonderful in the rain of this I am sure !! I am purchasing a 2nd set so I will be ready when these are worn out.
