Got an RS on the back of my brutale and itís great, good in wet weather too. Gets cold here in the great nation of Tasmania and have found the RS to be good in all conditions and will be putting them on all my road bikes as tyre time rolls around

Guy I know has them on his cbr honda blade thing, loves them and as per your comment rates them for wet use as well. Might give them a go myself when I wear my Road4s out.

Tires on along with a hub inspection/service. Quick ride on the bike. Tires look good and the ride was nice and smooth. Not sure when I will be able to go on a long ride with turns. Will report when I do. Thanks for the information.

I got the Pilot power RS on my F4 and it is by far the best tyre I ever had. Don't expect much mileage though.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

I have Power RS on my F3 800. I'm very impressed with them. I went with them because I normally use Pirelli Supercorsa SP V2's but as the weather gets cold those are not in the temps they are meant for. So after some research I went with Michelin Power RS. The coldest I've used them was about 45-50 degrees F. They were sticky even at those temps. I do weekend canyon style riding. Very stable in the straights. Never any weird or scary behavior in the turns. They tend to need a slightly more deliberate change of line but easily adjusted to it. The one thing that was a surprise benefit was that bike doesn't seem to have as much head shake! I do not use a steering damper. Now I don't think I even need one. Could be that I'm very light and loose on the clip ons with practice but still the Power RS is very well suited for the bike!

I don't notice anything alarming in terms of wear. I do use the Michelin recommendation of 31.8 psi front and 34.9 psi rear. This is higher than MV recommendation for the rear. I believe Michelin does not want lower than 29 psi for the rear.

Have not used in wet and with the weather being as cold as it is I don't plan on it. Should do very well considering its a high silica center compound.

My plan though for when it gets warmer is to try the Micheline Power Cup EVO. If they behave like this tire but are meant for more heat then I'll finally have the tire lineup for the entire year. I've tried RossoCorsa, Dunlop Q3+ and Metzeler M7RR.
