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:

The Michelin 2CT is a good sticky tire and a great upgrade over the stock tire on the Suzuki GSXR750 but it still seems to wear fast and flat-spot in the center if ridden in a straight line more than 50% of the time. Perhaps my expectations are too great, but I haven't put 1000mi on this latest tire.

Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

This is an alsome tire! i bought these to replace the stock battle ax's on my cbr600. I just ordered a new rear after putting over 9k on this one! i ride this on the street every single day, plus take it to the track twice a month. they stick at full throttle in corners, very sticky in the rain, they also work well for stunts. they are a little stiff for a street tire but i liked it because they are more responsive.

15 Years on Street - My favorite tire so far!

By R7LC

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

Absolutely awesome tire. Heats up fast and sticks really well. Great for track days and aggressive street riding. Got about 3400 miles out of the first set. Probably won't see that many miles on my second set due to track days, but I will buy again.

Comments about Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Motorcycle Tire:

I use these tires on my 05 Busa and the traction they provide for me is unbelievable. The control and response I get from my bike, both on the street and track, is awsome! I would recommend this tire to everyone.

  • 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?

    • A:

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