Michelin enters 2011 with the introduction of the Pilot Road 3 tire, ideal for motorcycles as varied as the Honda VFR800, BMW R 1200 RT and Suzuki Bandit 1250S. Enhancing the company's Sport Touring Motorcycle Radial tire lineup, the Pilot Road 3 tire features the latest-generation 2CT dual-compound technology, with a soft rubber compound on the tread shoulders and a wear-resistant compound down the middle, and all-new "XST" X-Sipe technology. MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 tires go on sale in January 2011.
The most distinctive feature of MICHELIN Pilot Road 3 tires is their revolutionary new X-Sipe Technology (XST), which adds a unique look to the distinctive tread pattern pioneered on the MICHELIN Pilot Road 2 tire. The full-depth sipes help evacuate any water underneath the tire by allowing additional draining capacity of the tread as well as generate pressures at the edge of the sipe blade to break up water film. Besides offering superior wet traction, the XST sipes have the added benefit of promoting long tread life and even wear characteristics.
