Its racing-bred compounds provide excellent grip and a unique experience for riders. The front tyre’s racing breeding optimises the steering force required to lean and gives accurate feedback through turns. The rear tyre has been engineered to optimise the pressure exerted on the contact patch. Michelin’s patented Adaptive Casing Technology+ (MICHELIN ACT+) delivers on the brand’s Total Performance promise to ensure enhanced straight-line and cornering stability. The factors that determine a motorcycle tyre’s sporty credentials include grip and manoeuvrability, as well as handling during changes of lean angle, under braking and when accelerating hard. In an independent test, Dekra Test Center found that a set of MICHELIN Power RS tyres last at least 33 percent longer than its main rivals.
