    By woodie

    from Seattle area "pacific Northwet"

    See all my reviews

    Pros

    • Easy to Mount
    • Great handling wet
    • Long Wearing

    Cons

    • Temptation To Speed

    Best Uses

    • Long Commuting
    • Twisty Back Roads

    Comments about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire:

    I have a Moto Guzzi Norge and ride it 14-15k a year. Mixture of commute and play. OEM tires were Metzler ZX6 and lasted well but handled "funny" when pushed. The RP3s have been pushed on the country backroads that I commute on and any fun roads that I could find. We did not have any hot weather this last year but lots of cool and damp. They have worn evenly and have about 9k on them. Not to wear bars yet. No flat spots no cupping. Am ordering next set now B spec.

    Good Tires

    By Korea

    from Seoul, Korea

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Good in rain
    • Longer tire life

    Cons

    • Cost alittle more

    Best Uses

    • Street use

    Comments about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire:

    Bought two Road 3 rear tires 190/55-17, because most online retailer & local MC dealers had them on back order, luckily Bike Bandit had them in stock. I don't do track days and I think as far as riding on the street, most riders won't noticed the difference in traction from brand A to brand B. Modern motorcycle tires has way more traction than 99% of riders could ever use on the street. I've been a fan of Michelin brand tires because of good wearing characteristics and longevity of the tread wear. I ride a Honda VFR 1200 and the front OEM (Bridgestone BT021) tire only lasted 3500 miles, while the rears lasted around 5K. Replaced the tires with Road2, the front has 5K and still has plenty of tread life. The rear Road2 at 6K is near the wear bar. If I get similar miles out of the Road3 as I did with the 2's , I will buy these tires again.

    Huge improvement over stock Dunlop

    By Luke

    from Lake George, NY

    See all my reviews

    Pros

    • Greater temp range
    • Projected longevity
    • Sticks into turns
    • Wet grip

    Cons

    • None yet

    Best Uses

    • Sport Touring

    Comments about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire:

    My only other tires on this fz6 were the stock Dunlop Sportmax. I would lose traction if I started too quickly especially under 50 degrees (even before they were worn). These Michelins promise the same longevity as on their pilot road 2 tires. They keep sticky even in colder temps. The lean-in, entering turns is effortless. So far so good!

    Great Tires. Good grip

      Comments about Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire:

      I live near and ride up in the north GA mountains. Blood mountain being my favorite run. Been riding for around 30 years and am an aggressive rider(when no traffic around) I was looking for a tire that was grippy with good rain traction and wear. These do it for me.

          A:

          Thanks for your question! This is a dual compound tire, harder in the midddle for longevity and softer on the shoulders for grip. Normally it is recommended to stick with the same styel and brand tire for front and rear. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.
