Tyre details: The Michelin Pilot Road 4 is the latest offering from the French tyre group and is designed for sport-touring and touring motorcycles. It performs exceptionally well in any weather conditions. Thanks to its improved 2CT Pilot Road 4 technology, the tyre is even more efficient than its predecessor. Increased mileage results in less frequent tyre changes in the long-term and reduces the overall cost of using the tyre.
The use of 2AT (dual angle) technology is a new addition to this version. This technology ensures additional driving stability for motorcycles placed under a lot of stress. The motorcycle handles better both when driving on straight roads and when going round corners. The rubber has been enriched with new silica compounds, resulting in better grip when driving on both wet and dry surfaces. The system of blades has also been improved.
The new XST+ ( X sipe technology) improves the motorcycle's driving and braking performance, even at pedestrian crossings and other lines painted on the roads. The Pilot Road 4 comes in 3 versions: standard, GT (designed for heavy motorcycles) and Trail - designed for enduro motorcycles. The only difference is the hardness of the compound used and its distribution.
The Michelin Pilot Road 4 comes in sizes ranging from 17 to 19 inches. The tyres have been approved for the BMW R1200 RT motorcycle and will be installed as original parts in almost half of the models released.
