Re: Michelin street tires!!!!!

I really don't know the first thing about tires since I'm JUST starting to look into getting some 2CTs off somebody here (upgrading from stockers ) for my first TD... but in any case STG just released their first look at the Power 3s:

Re: Michelin street tires!!!!!

from what ive read so far but im sure tommy can confirm, the power 3 is more recommended for people that daily their bikes and need a harder middle compound but would still like a sporty type tire. the pure is still better for people looking to push harder on the street\intermed pace track riders. again im sure someone can correct me a bit more if im mistaken.

Re: Michelin street tires!!!!!

The Power 3 is kind of a jack of all trades tire, It is mainly going to replace the pilot power and will kill the Pures off for street tires, I have more Info coming out in the coming weeks on all the new tires and the new "track day tire" is a crossbread of the pure and power cup. I have a few sets coming my way which I plan on running along side the Pirelli Superbike Pros

BIG CHANGES in ALL tire brands are coming, NOT all the info is out there right now since 90% of the new rubber is still on a ship coming over here. I just got info on all the NEW pirelli Race tires WORLD (superbike) of difference in the new rubber

The pilot power 3 is replacing the power pure.

The pilot power 2ct will remain in production.

Not the case, sorry.

I am still getting new info from Michelin, the new track day tire will resemble the pures, with different compounds than the current street tire.

Well apparently they told STG something different, as found 15 seconds into this video Brian states it's a direct replacement for the Power Pure. Am I misunderstanding it?

i think they may be misinformed, every review ive read so far has clearly stated that this is a tire designed to replace the pilot powers but still not be as track worthy as the pure. it seems what Tommy is saying is that the pure is to be replaced as well but with something else that info is still not released yet.
