Sweet as a nut

Reviewed by Dyso - January 9, 2023 for a purchase of February 4, 2022

I've had R5s on a 97VFR, 2011VFR800X and now an NT1100. There is no other tyre for me, love em! I even had the dealer swap off BRAND NEW Metzlers for my old R5s when I traded a bike just to keep running with the Michelin Road 5s

Run these on my zx10r and my gsxr 1100. I've tried a good number of tires in the last 30 years and for the last 3 almost 4 I swear by these. Great for the horrible roads and weather of alaska

Road 5s ran 15000 miles on cb500f

Reviewed by Sparky - September 17, 2022 for a purchase of November 19, 2020

After 15,000 miles there was still tread but the rubber was done. Maybe the tire could stand to be a bit softer for our lighter bikes likes the cb500f.

Hi Nolan. Thanks for your feedback on MICHELIN Road 5 tires. To be clear, the carcass of the tire is the primary factor that delivers handling characteristics based on the weight of a motorcycle. We offer MICHELIN Road 5 tires in a standard version, which offers superb handling for a wide range of sport, sport touring and roadster type bikes, and a GT version with an extra bias belt ply for heavier sport touring motorcycles. The tread compound directly affects grip and longevity. A softer compound would offer more grip but wear out much faster. Thanks again for choosing Michelin! We wish you long and safe rides.

Thought I wouldn't get 20,000km on the rear tyre due to being a heavy guy. I mostly use engine braking to slow down and rear brake because I commute daily on it. Also I am a very throttle happy rider. Surprised to get 30,000km from it. Amazing tyre. Was fearlessly able to lean on it until the last few 1000km but that's ok it's also winter here. Definatly recomend.
