When it comes to dry-weather grip, agility, stability and peerless handling performance, the MICHELIN Power RS stands out as the sport motorcycle road tyre market’s new benchmark* and accordingly targets the most discerning riders.
Incomparable grip and a unique experience. Its racing-bred compounds provide incomparable grip and a unique experience for riders. The front tyre’s racing breeding optimises the steering force required to lean and gives accurate feedback through turns.
Flawless stability The rear tyre has been engineered to optimise the pressure exerted on the contact patch. Michelin’s patented Adaptive Casing Technology+ (MICHELIN ACT+ Technology) delivers on the brand’s Total Performance promise to ensure flawless straight-line and cornering stability.
The market’s best grip The factors that determine a motorcycle tyre’s sporty credentials include grip and manoeuvrability, as well as handling during changes of lean angle, under braking and when accelerating hard. MICHELIN came out on top in all of these areas in the MTC test*.
* According to a series of tests carried out by Motorrad Test Center in October 2016 at Boxberg et Neuhausen tracks (Germany) using a BMW S1000RR equipped with 120/70ZR17 and 190/55ZR17 tyres, comparing the new MICHELIN Power RS with the following competitor tyres: Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3, Dunlop Sportsmart 2, Continental Sportattack III, Bridgestone S21, Metzeler M7 RR.

Matt Wildee switched his OE tyres for the Michelin Power RS and has ridden 2,000 miles, they worked on both road and track. I fitted them to my tweaked BMW R nineT Racer last year and for my needs and in this specific application, they were better than both the conservative OE Metzeler Roadtec touring tyres and the very racy Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SPs I also tried. The Supercorsas are excellent, with far more grip than the BMW could ever use, but the more neutral steering of the Michelins suited the R nineT. On the road, they gave the bike a lovely, progressive, rolling nature that complemented the chassis and allowed loads of feel. They also performed well enough in the wet and worked in the cool autumn conditions as well as I could want. Wear was good, too. I’d expect to get 4000 miles from a rear. On the track, they could handle everything the 110bhp BMW could muster and broke away progressively as I probed the limits of the bike’s ground clearance. They gave reassurance on the first lap without any tyre warmers, too.
