Great news, any idea about the pricing? i'm guessing these are manufactured in India and should be inexpensive

Nope imported and sold. Hence, costs at par.

Good news, there! With the Ceat-Pirelli partnership happening, it was only a matter of time before Michelin would add more products to its line-up, giving company to its PR2 range.

According to the Michelin press release, the cost is 25-32K, exclusive of taxes. I'm assuming the Pilot Power 3 will slot into the higher end of that price spectrum.

Been waiting to see some good options for the GS adventure but no dice. Almost tempted to go out and buy the enfield rear as my front for now.

I had set of PR3 on my Yamaha FZS600 for nearly two years - and yes, they are great tyres. Very confidence inspiring, and perfect for the wet and cold weather here. They last longer too, compared to other tires. I got around 20000 kms from PR3 rear, and I changed it for a PR4. I have done about 10000 kms with PR4 and squaring is obvious. But it might last just as long as the PR3 by the looks of it.
