THE MICHELIN ROAD 5: GREATER CONFIDENCE FOR RIDERS TODAY, AND GREATER CONFIDENCE TOMORROW…
Michelin has taken the performance of its Sport Radial tyre range to an even higher level with the new MICHELIN ROAD 5. This exciting newcomer is poised to succeed from new tyre comes from the DNA of the MICHELIN PILOT ROAD 4 which itself emerged as the European Sport Touring tyre market’s undisputed benchmark, with sales in excess of 1.5 million tyres since its launch four years ago. And it continues to deliver high performance in wet conditions throughout its life*, since the MICHELIN ROAD 5 stops as short under braking with more than 3,000 miles on the clock as new MICHELIN Pilot ROAD 4s**! In addition to these improvements, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 combines optimal grip on dry roads, superior stability compared with its main rivals and outstanding road manners***, a key consideration for owners of Sport Touring motorcycles.
MICHELIN ROAD 5: SUPERIOR WET-WEATHER GRIP COMPARED TO ITS FIVE MAIN RIVALS
The combination of three technologies helped the MICHELIN ROAD 5 to deliver the best wet-weather grip in a recent in-house comparison with the new tyre’s five main rivals*.
To achieve this level of performance, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 benefits from:
Latest-generation rubber compounds,
Unsurprisingly, motorcyclists demand strong braking performance. To address this concern, Michelin takes the stopping power of its Sport Touring tyres on wet roads a step further by ensuring that their braking ability endures with time. Indeed, with 3,000 miles on the clock, part-worn MICHELIN ROAD 5s stop as short as new MICHELIN PILOT ROAD 4s.
To obtain this degree of performance, Michelin has taken the MICHELIN XST X sipe technology it has also developed for road cars a step further thanks to MICHELIN XST Evo technology which features a combination of sipes and reservoirs designed to slice through surface water and improve the tyre’s water-clearance capacity. With wear, MICHELIN XST Evo technology’s evolutionary sipes reveal wider grooves to increase the tyre’s sea-to-land ratio and thereby maintain its ability to clear water.
IMPECCABLE DRY-WEATHER GRIP, STABILITY AND AGILITY FOR EVEN GREATER RIDING ENJOYMENT
In addition to optimising wet-weather grip, the MICHELIN ROAD 5 ensures outstanding grip on dry roads and superior stability compared with its main rivals, as well as enhanced road manners***, again thanks to a combination of technologies:
Its dry-weather grip performance is essentially due to the latest-generation rubber compounds it uses,

Everyone knows about the quality, durability, and high mileage offered by the Michelin suite of tires. What is important here is the buying experience. Even with the air freight shipping, the total cost is some 15-20% less than the equivalent tire purchased State side. Plus, the Visor Shop often gets the newest models from Michelin months before the States.

I've had the Dunlap Roadsmart 2 and 2 of the Roadsmart 3s, the Michelin Road 4, and now the GT5's in the last year. All on the same bike BMW K1600gtl. We ride 2 up a lot. I'm not the best of riders, but love to ride. I've had trouble (especially the Road 4) with cupping. Only have 200 miles on these so don't know. I immediate (and wife) noticed how smooth of a ride it is! Corner is better then on the Dunlap. I just mounted them this week and ordered another pair to set on the shelf when ready!
