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.

Best Tyre I’ve had

Wake up Aaron - August 15, 2020

Did 8000km on my Versys650 on these, 5000 km trip in summer fully loaded with panniers, long bitumen straights, dirt section of 150km, did spin up and slide on the dirt, but controlled and fun, even did several track days on them at Lakeside. Great edge grip, great confidence wet or dry. Can’t fault them. I did have to run higher pressures than I normally do, 34min front, 36-38 rear. Note front was nervous with a loose feel for the first 1000km at high speed, then came good and became stable and planted. Still looked like new when I traded Versys for V85TT Guzzi.

excessive edge wear.

Camel - July 24, 2020

I little disappointed as i have worn the tyres beyond the legal limit on the very edges on my 2006 R1200GS in 5,000k riding around Tasmania and the snowy mountains. Admittedly I was chasing my partner on her Yamaha MT10. The tyres still look like new in the centres though. Did not pass a road worthy when changing to Queensland registration.
