New Michelin Pilot Power 3 tires

Supposed to replace the Pures. I'm interested to see how well they perform. Lots of tread, so they may do well in the wet.



SBTG is supposed to put out a video review of them soon.

Seems like a lot of tread. Can't wait to see some reviews.

Interesting. My zx14 needs a new front tire and I've been debating about going with another Pilot Road or a Pilot Power. Although I think this tire might be a little too track oriented if it's meant to replace the Pures. I'll be watching the reviews as well.

Well, the pures aren't exactly a track tire. More of a street tire, actually. Judging by the tread, I'd say these are more street oriented as well.

If they can get 7k-8k out of a rear, then I'm definitely sold.

Thumbs up

I had a set on my now sold ducati 900...and they cope really well on our awful Irish roads, which are more often than not....more wet than dry. I was still able to achieve full 'dangle angle' in the rain, as long as they were well warmed up. Very predictable with great feedback....I would highly recommend them.

I think you may be talking about the Pilot Road 3. These tires are all new and haven't even been listed on Michelin's website yet.

Michelin is discontinuing the Pure already? Isn't that design only 2 years old? I was thinking of getting a set in the spring.

the "Pure" name wasn't very popular, so they've dropped the name. but these are basically a version 2.0 of the Pures. just like how the Power One was the new version of the Power Race.

Pilot Power though is a name synonymous with high performance. glad Michelin went back to that name.

Correct. A lot of people called them by the wrong name. They were short lived, and the fronts are already sold out.

I hope to have some info soon on these new ones.

I hope they're cheaper than the pures. The new 'stones are excellent and CHEAP.

Which Bridgestone are you talking about? The S-20 Hypersports? I was thinking of getting those as an alternative to the Power Pures.

Looks like the new Michelin is significantly more spendy that anything previous.

Even if they do offer 20% better tread life that does not make up for doubling the cost

Who needs banning today?
