Michelin Malaysia Launches MICHELIN Power 6, MICHELIN Power GP 2, MICHELIN Anakee Road

Michelin Malaysia launched the latest range of motorcycle tyres, namely the Michelin Power 6, Michelin Power GP 2, and Michelin Anakee Road, in an event last night.

According to Michelin, these new tyres are the result of their commitment to excellence, performance, and safety on the road, showcasing the brand’s continuous efforts to meet consumer needs.

Managing Director of Michelin Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei, Prichapakorn Dangrojana states that,

“We’re thrilled to demonstrate Michelin’s steadfast dedication to adapting to ever-changing consumer needs through the innovative expansion of our motorcycle products. With innovation at the core of Michelin’s strategic approach, we are dedicated to advancing our motorcycle tire offerings to maintain our position as the benchmark in the industry for riders and OEMs alike and are delighted to be able to cater to Malaysian motorcyclists whose passion encompasses both the open road and the racetrack. Now with the MICHELIN Power 6, MICHELIN Power GP 2, and MICHELIN Anakee Road, we’re embarking on a technical revolution that promises to elevate the riding journey for Malaysian motorcyclists.”

MICHELIN Power 6: Your Everyday Tire for Excitement and Sportiness

The Michelin Power 6 follows in the footsteps of the excellent Power 5 sport-touring tyre, with emphasis on sport. (On the other hand, the Road 6 is also a sport-touring tyre, but with emphasis on touring.)

Michelin says that the Power 6 is optimised for wet and dry conditions, sporty handling and agility. They added that the tyre was also developed with mileage and lasting performance in mind for those long trips.

MICHELIN Power GP 2: From Racetrack Dominance to Roadside Adrenaline

Originally crafted for the track and now certified for street performance, the Michelin Power GP 2 represents the pinnacle of tire engineering. These tyres cater to supersports bikes above 600cc.

In other words, these are true sport tyres which can be used on the track and vice versa. It also means that you can ride it to the track, have fun in a trackday, and ride back with the same tyres.

MICHELIN Anakee Road: Trail-Designed Thread Pattern for Road Usage

There used to be only one Michelin Anakee tyre which provides a balance for road and off-roading, but Michelin has since split the range into several variants according to their respective uses. Now there is the Anakee Wild for off-roading, and this, the Anakee Road for road-biased riding but with light off-road capabilities.

As such, the Anakee Road features a 90/10 ratio for on-road/off-road use. That means adventure bike owners need not fear about grip on the road, while still being able to take to the trail into the durian orchard.


With 130 years of history in developing 2-wheel tires, and more than 500 wins in the FIM World Championships, Michelin benefits from a vast and unique know-how that has helped them remain a driving force behind innovation in the automotive industry.

The Michelin Power and Michelin Anakee ranges have been homologated by premium manufacturers such as BMW Motorrad, Triumph, KTM and Honda along with many others.
