New for 2017 - Michelin Power RS

Michelin is launching the new Power RS for 2017. It will be a replacement for the Supersport EVO which was launched in 2015, and is aimed at the sporty road rider which occasionally takes to the track.


MCN have tested the tyres and seems quite impressed. During the test the Power RS was tested back-to-back against Metzeler M7 RR and Bridgestone Battlax S21. Link to article can be found here -->

I am thinking of replacing my worn Supercorsa SP with a pair of Power RS next year and if they are as good as MCN claims they would fit my needs perfectly Would be nice to see some reviews on the forum as people try it out.

I've never looked at the supersport EVO as a street tire, its always been a trackday tire to me. So I doubt I'll be trying these guys out. Sure wish they'd give up on the PP3 garbage though. Bring back the pures!

06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 82k miles and counting.....
08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines.

Hehehe! I think the Power Supersport EVO was a bit of a "mis-understood" tyre. Maybe because of Michelin's marketing department, and was always benchmarked against Racing Street/trackday tyres such as Pirelli Supercorsa SP V2, Metzeler Racetec RR, Bridgestone RS10 and similar. I think it is more of a fast road tyre rather than a full on trackday tyre. More like a Diablo Rosso Corsa and Sportec M7RR.


However this Power RS tyre seems to get quite good feedback from journalists and seems to raise the bar within the hypersport class of tyres.

Anyways, it will be interesting to see how this tyre perform in wet/damp conditions. I'll be replacing my Supercorsa SP's with a pair of these next spring :-)
