We’ve always said that what MotoGP teams use differ from what you and I can obtain for everyday riding. However, the gap has closed between “unobtanium” in MotoGP and what’s available to the general public. One of it is tyre technology, as these Michelin Pilot Street 2 can attest to.
It’s been two years since Michelin’s return to supplying the MotoGP teams and you can be that they’ve learned much since then. But also remember that Michelin used to supply tyres in MotoGP way before the other brands before dropping out for a few years. The company have also been around since 1889, exactly 130 years ago.
The Michelin Pilot Street 2 is designed for scooters and small displacement motorcycles. As such, rim sizes start from 10-inches though 14-, 16- and finally 17-inches.
These new tyres were designed to perform on both dry and wet roads.
To achieve this:
- The front tyre features a circumferential groove to aid agility, while lateral grooves give good performance on wet roads.
- The rear tyre’s central grooves optimizes water clearance while providing outstanding grip during the dry.
The tyre’s performance was tested and certified by TÜV Labs at Fontange, France. Equipped with the Michelin Pilot Street 2, the bike lapped the 2-km circuit 4.4 seconds faster than its rivals.
The tyres will be available at TYREPLUS and Michelin authorized dealers. They are offered in 19 sizes.
