The Pilot Power 2CT tire is a track day tire that is equally at home on the road. Tubeless, dual-compound radial for track or performance street riding with a tread surface divided into three separate areas featuring two different rubber compounds. The intermediate center compound provides durability, and the softer rubber mix on the edges of the tread yields phenomenal cornering grip, and unprecedented lean angles.

Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

I have 107000 on my k1200rs WOT - and another 50000 on my 02 k12 that I totaled. I have been through alot of tires. Most tires only last 3000 miles.
Have tried them all-- I even quit smoking.
These pilots have out lasted them all. Currently have 7000 on this set.

Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

I just bought a 06 zx10r the 2ct was the tires that were on the bike so I replace the back one with a new one and in the curves that back tire can't be trusted. Even at different speeds it just kicks out compared to the Pirelli Rossos which sticks out the gate. And the warmup time put it like this i've yet to see or feel them warmup, they were a bad buy and I will never buy them again.

    Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

    After a lot of searching through the internet for what tires I should buy, I ended up settling on these. I recently replaced my back tire which was a Michelin Pilot Road and the difference between the tires is amazing. So far I've put on roughly 1100mi and the tread still looks like it did the day I put them on. Sure that isn't a ton of miles but for how new they still look I'm impressed. The corning is also great as I've been able to get lower on my bike than I have on any other tire that I've had. And now for what I'm most impressed by; the wet road traction. Nobody likes the rain and anybody who claims that they are completely confident in the rain is either riding slow or lying but I felt a lot safer on these tires. I was still getting a decent lean in through corners and speed wasn't and issue either (I won't say how fast I was going but I will say it was probably too fast). The last tires I had scared the hell out of me in the rain but these still stuck to the road much better than I expected. All in all I would recommend these to anybody.

    Best Tire I've Ever Had

    Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

    Bought these to replace the stock Dunlops on a VFR800. Compared to the Dunlops they stick like glue, no more wheelspin, no more tire lock under braking. That being said, they wear slightly faster than the original tires, looks like I'll get about 6k miles on these compared to 8k on the Dunlops. I push these tires much harder though. Well worth the faster wear when I hit the brakes or go into a corner a little too fast especially on such a heavy bike. If you buy these tires you won't regret it. Haven't ridden on any bike tire that sticks this well and lasts more than 4k miles.

    • Q:

      It appears that the front tire size I need is only available in a Z (148 mph) while the rear tire size is only available in a W (168 mph). Since my 2006 Ninja 650r's top speed is rated at 147, it is unlikely I would ever reach 148 mph. Would there be any potential problems if I ran the Z in front and W in the rear? Currently, both tires on the 650r are Z rated. Thanks in advance.

    • Q:

      I have an 07 ZX-10r(stock) and have been thinking about buying the 2CT's for my bike. I've heard everything from they're the best tire to probs w/balancing, tire pressure,straight line wobble at speed, drifting in turns etc. Your opinion is appreciated. I would describe my riding as aggressive street and occasional track riding. Thanks,

        A:

        Thank you for writing in. We have had none or very few complaints about this tire . It is designed for aggressive riding but is also a compound that is not going to wear out fast, which is common with tires specific for track use. This tire would be for someone who does commuting or regular street riding that also wants to go fast occasionally.

    • Q:

      Will it fit on my bike?

      Do you think a 190/55 ZR 17 tire will fit on my 2003 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 Ninja? Currently I run a a 180/55 zr 17, but I want a wider tire and I want to know if a 190 will be too big or even if it will go on my rim?

        It will fit but if you like to hit the curves I would not advise it, it will throw off you curve alinement.
