Unbelievable.

greysmouth - November 23, 2020

I've married Michelin Power line for my naked sport bike since the beginning. Every single year riding the new Power Cup version for that year. Well, on road, on track (Mugello), I've always had maximum pleasure and fun according to my limits. And safety, even on wet road. But this one, The Power GP, it comes from another Planet, in my opinion. On track, adopting the correct tyre pressure, it makes me feel like a Pro.

Track use tyres

Robert - November 22, 2020

I used these tyres on my 2020 yamaha r1m at Cartagena, haven't previously used them at outlon, cadwell and Donnington i was happy to take 1 front and 2 rears for the 3 day trip. Unfortunately the tyres fell apart and grip went very quickly on the track. 1 rear only lasted 3 sessions on the track. I ended up running a competitors slick tyres for the last day that wore perfect over the course of the day. I was quite disappointed as said earlier in the review I was happy with these tyres before Cartagena.
