Michelin Pilot Road 4 Motorcycle Tyres
The Michelin Pilot Road 4 or PR4 as it will be known is the latest, and it seems the most successful, sport touring tyre from this French manufacturer. There has been an evolution, for the want of a better word, of the PR3 or Pilot Road 3 to bring it's latest generation of Sport Touring motorcycle tyres. These tyres are designed and constructed to deliver maximum safety in all weather conditions with extra emphasis in the wet and particularly braking. As you would expect again, tyre life and enhanced safety are at the centre of the development of this new model. The new Pilot Road 4 expects to offer up to 20% longer tread life then the Pilot Road 3 tyres. Michelin's strategy is to constantly improve and develop it's products thoughout the range. For this reason again we can see three versions of the tyre. Firstly the standard PR4, then the GT version for those heavier touring bikes, by the way this tyre will be OEM on the new BMW R1200RT and finally the Trail version for the very popular large adventure bikes which are ridden primarily on the road.
