Pilot Road 4 Tire Lineup for 2014

For the 2014 motorcycling season, Michelin will bring three versions of its all-new Pilot Road 4 motorcycle tire to the US – the Pilot Road 4, Pilot Road 4 GT and Pilot Road 4 Trail.

These road-only tires cover most categories above 600cc, and are designed to offer “maximum safety in the most common conditions of use, especially on wet roads and in particular when braking.”

Michelin is also the official tire supplier for the 2014 BMW R 1200 RT, which receives the semi-water cooled boxer twin found in the new R 1200 GS. The new R 1200 RT will use the Pilot Road 4 GT title.

Speaking of the tire, Michelin says: “In short, the Pilot Road 4 delivers enhanced safety in all situations and extended tire life. They are a tangible illustration of Michelin’s Total Performance strategy of constantly and simultaneously improving tire performance characteristics across the board.”
