Fantastic tyres for all conditions

YellopeR1l - June 9, 2021

I've fitted Pilot Road 4 tyres to several different styles of bike from an R1200GS to a ZX6R and a S1000RR and they've performed brilliantly on all of them. They give so much confidence straight away with very little warm up and they take a very long time to develop a flat spot. I got over 5000 miles form the rear on my S1000RR without them ever feeling sketchy. I only ever ride on the road so I can't vouch for them for use on a track, but they're great road bike tyres.

Good and not so good

kpax - June 3, 2021

Good for PR4 is life and rain control. Bad is the fact that they begin to hum after 5 - 6000 miles. Cupping follows. Riding in the twisties is fair-not great. I typically ran about 10,000 mi. on the Michelins. I've purchased somewhere around 15 pairs of Michelin tires: PR 2, 3, 4 between 2008 and 2016 for BMW R1200 RTs Then I won a set of Dunlop Roadsmart 2. Much better overall. Roadsmart 3; even better. Now running a Roadsmart 4 rear and Roadsmart 3 on front due to offerings for BMW GS. Much better road feel from the Dunlops, especially in the twisties. Rain seems about equal. Life goes to Dunlop.

Hi Paxton, thank you for your review. Many factors can impact regular wear of a front tire starting with the proper air pressure, riding style (even braking, braking into corners, etc.), surface of the road, and condition of the components on your bike just to name a few. Once cupping begins, it is nearly impossible to correct so it is important to monitor and adjust subjective factors accordingly.
