Yes but not just in one attempt, but over prolonged period. Not sure about CBR as I haven't seen, but 100% possibility (as I've seen) on Yamaha Rx. But again, that's not just one factor, even the motorcycle being exposed to prolonged rides on bad roads (normal wear & tear)

This is just a number on the ODO, nothing else. Hope the mods don't delete this post on account of something "else"

And thus, 3rd year passes quietly with mostly so many good & a few not so good memories taking me from Southern most tip Kanyakumari to Western most tip Koteshwar & riding far into Gulf of Mannar covering 14 states & 3 union territories & entire West coast of India & most of ECR in TN & entire GQ covering mountains, forests, beaches, deserts in pouring rains & scorching heat; one thing that I learned is...respect your ride & it respects you back

What is your opinion Michelin Pilot Street? I am asking as the service technician commented that it is not suitable for Indian conditions. Just want to know your opinion as well as you do a lot of touring.

I just got it a couple of days back. Too early to give a feedback as I have not driven much, but find the handling better than stock Conti.

I do not want to guess as I saw your post in CBR facebook forum.

I've been told by many folks that it is a good tire; if you know about me, I wouldn't certify unless I personally use it, so my frank opinion is - I don't know.

However, being a radial tire I would any day opt for it without thinking over Dunlop or MRF Zapper Q (tube)

When it comes to comparison to MRF Revz S...well...let me use Revz S first before comparing it with Pilot Street Radial

Had a chance to check out my good friend's CBR equipped with Thai make Michelin Pilot Street Radial; he has done a little over 16000 Km & the wear is noted for 75-80% & I'm sure it still has juice for another 4000 odd more Km. Altogether 20K for a rear radial tire is good in my humble opinion.

We're all obsessed with fancy numbers, aren't we? I'm no exception either

Stay tuned for some real good updates on my CBR, I've been able to realize one of the important factor to have bought this bike. Meanwhile, enjoy this little video from HVK Monsoon Drive 2014

I don't know at what time you had asked this question & at that point in time I really didn't have any experience with Michelin PS radial. But now, due to unfortunate turn on events, I'm riding a C250R ABS equipped with Michelin Pilot Street (MPS) Radial only until this week and have clocked very minuscule distance of say 1300+ Km on both wet & dry weather.

From that experience, I would say, the tires are really good; summarizing in one sentence...don't know if its ABS or the tire or both would've not been there, I probably wouldn't be making this post as well. So thanks to both of them.

IMHO, MPS radial is a good tire. BTW, the ones that are on this CBR is Thai make. Not sure if the quality differs between India & Thailand.

Everything is normal with my CBR; 3 weekend ago a good friend of mine & an excellent rider who accompanied with me for HVK Monsoon Drive at Goa met with an accident & broke his Tibia despite he wearing super protective clothing, riding an ABS equipped vehicle and being a real good rider.

Even after 3 weeks I'm still recovering from the shock; during this time, I had to bring his CBR back as well as mine from Goa. I'm using his CBR until I could get mine.
