Bought Pilot Road 4 last time. Got over 10.000 mi. On em and almost down to the wear bars. These are on an 06 Buell Ulysses, mostly commuting with some scratching thrown in. The 4s stick like glue wet or dry but turn in was not the same as the Conti sport trac that were on the bike when i got it. Looking forword to the 5s.

Christopher C on Apr 22, 2019
The size was not available in other Michelin ST tires. And I have used Michelin for about 50k miles on my R1100RT. Hoping this newer one will be even better. This bike does wear the front tire on the left side long before fhe right side - at least 20% difference.
Charles S on Apr 10, 2019
I buy Michelin because I ride in the rain and they are great wet weather tires.
James R on Mar 31, 2019
Over the past 12 years and 280,000 plus miles ridden on 2 Yamaha-FJR's between Weekend crazy riding in the canyons and 4 day vacation rides plus commuting to work everyday. I have run every brand available. The Michelin tires stick better and last longer then all the rest.
Michael M on Mar 30, 2019
Great reviews, especially high ratings on treadwear and wet traction. Going on my Suzuki SFV 650 which is obviously more of a sporty commuter rather than a track toy.
Josh S on Mar 27, 2019

Have Road 4"s on other bike and they are amazing, all weather and all paved road surfaces, wet, dry, cold or hot they ate up everything. Great grip in wet through heavy construction areas with changing surface dust and isolated gravel deposits!!!

Does Michelin make this pilot road 5 in a GT version for heavier touring bikes like they do with the road 4?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Good question, and one I asked when I recently bought a set of Road 5s for my 2003 BMW K1200RS as suggested by the Michelin web-site. According to Michelin there will be a Road 5 GT released sometime this year, but to the best of my knowledge a definite release date has not been announced; check the Michelin website for any updates. The other unanswered question regarding the choice between the Road 5 and Road 5 GT is where Michelin is setting the weight point for determining which tire to fit to your machine. I never could get an answer to this one from Michelin.

FYI- the Max GVW for my bike is 1100lbs (440f/730r); I have ~2k miles on the Road 5s so far, mostly hi-speed highway miles one-up with luggage/camping gear, and I have not experienced anything at all to indicate that I need a heavier tire. Turn in is predictable and consistent and the sidewalls only talk to me at appropriate moments. If I have any complaint with the Road 5s it's that they seem to me to be a bit slow coming up to temperature, but, in all fairness, once the tires are at temp they are very ride-able and transition from the center to the edge very smoothly.

As always, tire choice is probably the most subjective part of judging a motorcycles performance... no two riders will get identical results.

If you have any doubt at all, wait for the GTs. , A slightly heavier carcass and sidewall won't significantly diminish the ride quality of your machine and you can be confident that if you have erred it's on the side of caution, and that's never a mistake.
I have a st1300 honda and am looking for a Michelin road 5. Is there a 170 60 r17 for the rear of my bike?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question! Yes, tire size 170/60-17 is available in a Michelin Road 5 Motorcycle Tire.

The pilot road 4 had a stiffer sidewall option available for heavier sport tourers like the FJR. Does the Road 5 come in two versions also?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this tire is only available with one sidewall options. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888.

The road 5 seems like a great tire
I didn't like the original tires I had on my FZ-07 right from the time I bought it. (used)
These Road 5 seem to grip the road well no matter what I do. I haven't tested them in the wet yet, but I have every confidence that they will handle it well.

I can’t say I enjoy the price, but...
2018 1200GS: The Road 5 tires have been excellent.

Even intentionally ham-fisted brake and power inputs in the wet are handled very well.

In the dry there’s no disappointment, either. Nice and stable, no abrupt traction loss.

And they look cool.

That price though

Great Tires for Wet or Dry
I am on my second set of these V's. I have used the II and III's back a few years and really liked them as well. I skipped on buying the IV's. The handling on the dry pavement is great and they are hands down the beat in the wet I have ever used. They give me great confidence in all riding conditions.

excellent tires
wow! I've been using shinko 009's for years, but haven't been too happy with them on my sv650. got the road 5's and was amazed at the grip and much smoother ride. rain performance is great too. with the shinko rear, i could spin up the rear wheel at will on wet asphalt. no such thing with the michelins.

Best tire I've had on my 09 Stelvio. Almost double the mileage of others AND it wears evenly, not just center tread. Great traction in the wet also.
