Michelin Road 5 GT is one of the best tires for touring motorcycles and for those who travel many kilometers, without having to compromise on safety.
Lovers of long distances, often in pairs on the bike, owners of BMW R 1200 RT or K 1600 GT, of YAMAHA FJR 1300, of HONDA PAN EUROPEAN 1300, of KAWASAKI 1400 GTR, of TRIUMPH TROPHY ... these riders need a specific tire that offers safety, comfort, durability, stability and driving pleasure, in all conditions even after having traveled many kilometers.
Developed respecting the philosophy and the same rigorous standards of the MICHELIN Road 5 tire, the GT version benefits from the technological advances of the range from which it comes.
To meet the expectations of these demanding riders, the MICHELIN Road 5 GT focuses on performance, particularly on wet surfaces, for effective stability and braking, especially when caught in bad weather. From internal comparative tests, the new tire is the first in braking and grip tests on wet roads ** even with 50% wear ***.
The MICHELIN Road 5 GT tire uses metal additive manufacturing technology to develop extremely sophisticated molds. The result is progressive sipes, called MICHELIN XST Evo, which show wider grooves as wear increases, increasing the tread notch rate, in order to preserve its ability to drain water.
