Given 81% while driving a (160/60 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 2,500 spirited miles
Before I tried this tyre, I had Pirelli Diablo rosso 3 set. So i go to my mechanic guy, he changed the tyres and as always said be careful for first couple of kilometers as the rubber is scrubbed in. I'm all prepared to give this tyre a go, so I went to the local twisty road, that i am very fond of. Its about 3-4 kilometers of twisty roads. It has all the corners from twisty 180 deegre turns, to long fast ones.So as the tyre is getting scrubbed and warmed up I can feel the grip coming in. It was scrubbed in so fast that after a few miles, i was giving it all i got on this excellent road. The grip on the front tyre is fenomenal and confidence expiring. So I immediately knew that this is the best tyre I rode to this date. The feedback is great, when you are leaned over and the tyre is communicating with you on the handle bars. I was so excited, i was literally going as fast as i could. So lets check the bad stuff. I ride on a KTM smcr 690. That is a light road bike. A fun supermoto. I got 4000kms(2500miles) out of the rear tyre. the front is still as new. I had a nasty highsider when the tyres aswell as road were cold at the end of the season. So this is really a summer hypersport tyre. Be careful when its cold outside and give this tyre a little bit of time so it can get to operating temperature. I would recommend this tyre to all fast guys on the road, aswell as intermediate fast guys on track. Wet grip is really not that bad, but i would not get this tyre if i lived somewhere in rainy conditions. So let the tyre warm up and then have a blast. One last thing. I figured that this tyre is at its best when there is 25*C(77*F) or more deegres celsius/fahrenheit outside.

Excellent choice for twisty roads and track use. So long with the existing "set" have 8.000km's and are still 100% ready to race.... concerning the remaining Km's.
On the dry 10/10 but my surprise was huge on the wet, since the grip was very good for this category of tyre. Handling on twisty roads is comparable to track use so is feedback. Only negative due to the "over" curve design the comfort isn't at the level of the overall performance. But other that the Power RS is a excellent choice for a combine way of use...!!! Well done Michelin!

Without a shadow of doubt, the best tyres ive ever had, i run them on a 2008 FZ1N which is heavily tuned and geared for racing. They are outstanding in dry conditions and i can feel them moving around, my talent runs out way before the tyre does.

Ive done several track days on them and lots of fast road riding too, ive never had a scare on them.

Just make sure you warm them up as theyre not great when cold or in wet conditions.

I wont buy anything else for the forseeable future, theyre that good!
