New Rear Tyre

I'm in Aus and have come across a pretty hot price on a new Michelin Power Cup Evo rear tyre 190/55ZR17
My bike is a 2006 F4 1000 1+1
Before I commit I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these ( good or bad ).
All comments welcome.
Cheers Phil.

Thats the tire I will be using next during the warm season. I went with Power RS in the cold weather and I really liked its characteristics. The ACT and 2CT technology that Michelin is using seems to be the ticket for me. Stable upright without excessive feedback. Neutral behavior turning in and at full lean. I think this is the first time that a tire is advertising the idea of aggressive lean angles for a street tire with less concern about standing water traction. I agree that if its raining I'm either not riding or not leaning over anyway. The power RS has a lower operating temperature range in comparison to Supercorsa SP V2's and so it does better in the cold compared to that tire. But seeing that I can make it sticky at 45 F it will be out of its temp range during the summer. So in comes the Power Cup Evo for me. If it behaves like I think then I've got my two tire options depending on the season.

Are they marketed as a street tyre in Oz? In UK they're recognised as a race/track day tyre which would explain 'airjawed' point about aggressive lean angles. With that in mind, it might well be a very soft tyre (tire) that will not give heaps of kilometres (miles). Sometimes though, we don't really care about that!

I would be interested to learn more, Phil S, if you do buy them. Cheers!

Jumping in this thread as I just purchased a 2000 F4 and the tires on it are 10 years old. Living in Colorado those temperatures you listed make that Power RS sound pretty good to me. It hasn't rained in a few months so not too worried about the wet but I do like to ride up into the mountains early morning where it is pretty cold.

10 Year old tires must go! Yes, sounds like power RS will do well for you in the cold and dry early morning mountains. Send pics of those roads... sounds great!!

After doing a bit more searching I came across this SHOP for AU$189.00 and snapped it up.
Seems like a pretty good deal for what it is to me.

Just a note that the geometry on your bike is set up for the 120/65 front. Only a couple of options in that tire. If you switch to a 120/70 front you have many more options, but may have tire rubbing on front fender and radiator guard during hard braking.

I just bought a set of 2cts and Diablo Rosso Corsas since they both have the 65 front as an option. Thinking of using the Diablos for track and Michelin for street/cold/wettrack.

Be sure to chime in with your feedback.

No, all 1000's+ are set up for 120/70 fronts

TRUE, but the person I quoted says he's got a 2000 F4 with 10yo tires on it
