- As you can see, the Pilot Road 4 features heavy siping designed to evacuate high volumes of water on wet roads.
- Although the standard and Trail’s PR4 casing is the same, both the tread pattern and the profile have been altered slightly for added steering response.
- The standard PR4 had ample grip and stability for a 1000cc sport-touring bike even when ridden hard on canyon roads.
- The PR4’s were marginally more responsive than the OE fitted tire. They also deliver a pleasing ride and are easy to get a feel for when new.
- After a three year production run, Michelin updates its Pilot Road 4 sport touring tire by raising grip levels and claimed durability.
- The only issue we have in the stability department is a small degree of tread squirm during super fast paced riding. Though it wasn’t significant enough to keep us from exploring the high level of traction provided by the rubber.
- Despite its lauded performance in the rain we still haven’t gotten a chance to accumulate any wet weather mileage. However, if you live somewhere where it often rains, these will be the tires you’ll want to run.
