Michelin North America is introducing the newest tire in its line-up of high performance motorcycle tires. The Michelin Power RS, first introduced at the Michelin Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, combines revolutionary levels of dry-weather grip, agility, stability and superior handling performance. Michelin Power RS stands out as the sport motorcycle road tire market’s new benchmark and accordingly targets the most discerning riders.


The tire’s high level of performance comes from a combination of Michelin’s longstanding expertise, its experience of top-flight racing and its demonstrated history of innovation.

The combination of new rubber compounds, some of which are derived from racing, and a new casing design, has resulted in incomparable grip on dry roads and a unique experience for the rider.


The innovative rear tire features a patented construction which benefits from all new Michelin Adaptive Casing Technology (ACT+) for impeccable straight-line and cornering stability.

This new range delivers exceptional performance and will be available in January 2017.

The tire will be available in 11 different sizes and will cover a broad spectrum of motorcycles, from 250cc bikes to large displacement sport bikes.
