New Pilot Road 3 for the BMW K1600GT

Michelin has launched a new ‘B’ version of its Pilot Road 3 sport touring tyre. Specifically, the tyre is designed for large touring bikes including the BMW K1600GT. Using the same siped tread pattern as the original tyre, the new version also features a redesigned casing to aid stability when these bikes are fully-laden with luggage and a pillion.

The Pilot Road 3 offers riders year-round performance in all weathers due to its X-Sipe technology; a combination of sipes and wells in the tread pattern that cut through the surface film of water, and aid water dispersion, to offer grip levels similar to that of a dry road.

The tyre also uses the latest version of Michelin’s “Two-Compound Technology” which the manufacturer says helps to offer improved tyre life due to its more wear-resistant centre tread rubber compound and softer shoulder areas, which improve grip in corners.

The new version of the tyre is available now in 190/55 ZR 17 and is suitable for use on other large touring bikes including the Triumph Trophy 1200.
