        MICHELIN Pilot Road 4

        Feel more secure, whatever the conditions***

        MICHELIN Pilot Road 4


        Yet another sport touring radial tire breakthrough from Michelin: With MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tires on your motorcycle, you'll ride with more confidence - rain or shine, hot or cold, city or highway.

        Available in 3 versions: Standard, GT & Trail.
        • Stops Faster

          MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tires stop faster in the wet than any other tires in the category. But don't just take our word for it. Independent tests prove it.* The MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 brakes 17% shorter than its closest competitor on wet pavements and even better on slippery wet surfaces thanks to MICHELIN XST+ sipes technology. All of which means riding in the rain should feel safer, more secure, and a lot less stressful.

        • Lasts Longer

          Thanks to improved 2CT technology, the new MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 4 lasts 20% longer than MICHELIN® Pilot® Road 3 tires**. Over the long run, that adds up to fewer tire changes and a lower total cost of ownership.

        • Grips the road in virtually all conditions

          All-new silica-charged rubber compounds were developed for the MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 tires. These compounds are specially formulated to provide excellent grip on a wide range of road surfaces, including painted lines and pedestrian crossings, making it easier for you to ride with confidence in virtually all conditions.***

          • MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology

            MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology incorporates patented sipes and integrated water reservoir technology, giving increased water drainage capacity.

            The MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology offers more grip on wet roads, due to its patented sipes and water reservoirs incorporated into the tread, giving increased water drainage capacity.

            This technology is used in the MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 :

          • MICHELIN 2CT Two Compound Technology

            MICHELIN 2CT dual-compound technology successfully accomplishes two conflicting ideals: wear resistance in the centre of the tread, and grip on the shoulders.

            The rubber compound in the center is harder to withstand aggressive acceleration and braking.
            The rubber compound in the shoulder is softer to maximise grip on the lean angle.
            Here is an example of the distribution of soft rubber and hard rubber on a set of Michelin Power Pure:

          • MICHELIN XST+ X-Sipes Technology

            The new XST generation !

            Patented sipes and integrated water resevoirs allow the MICHELIN XST X-Sipe Technology to deliver exceptional grip on wet roads. XST + technology includes transverse sipes to improve wet braking and chamfers added to the sipe edges to help prevent abnormal wear in extreme conditions. The transverse sipes allow the front tire to break the water film and ensure outstanding braking in wet weather.

          Michelin recommends its motorcycle and scooter tires for the models shown in the fitment guide. While every attempt has been made to make this list comprehensive, some makes and models have been omitted.  In most cases this is because Michelin does not offer any appropriate tires for a particular motorcycle, or the manufacturer does not offer the motorcycle for sale in North America. If MICHELIN® tires are available in replacement sizes for a motorcycle that is not listed in the fitment guide consult a Michelin Motorcycle Tire Dealer to confirm compatibility with your specific application.

          NOTE: By using the tire fitment guide, you acknowledge and accept that Michelin North America, Inc. (“Michelin”) is not responsible for any error or omission, nor for any damage or injury resulting from the choice of a recommended tire.  You also acknowledge that it is your responsibility to ensure that the recommended tires are compatible with the technical characteristics of the motorcycle on which they are mounted, including the motorcycle manufacturer’s recommendations.  Moreover, you fully release Michelin North America, Inc. from any liability whatsoever in relation to, or as a consequence of, possible damages resulting from the fitting of tires not recommended in this guide.  Michelin recommends the tire pressure specified by the motorcycle manufacturer, except where otherwise stated.

          IMPORTANT:  When tires with speed ratings lower than those supplied to the customer as original equipment are fitted, the speed capability of the vehicle is limited to the maximum speed rating of the replacement tires.
