The new MICHELIN Road 5 GT Tyre: The road tyre for fans of motorcycle touring

The MICHELIN Road 5 GT is the latest addition to the MICHELIN Road 5 motorcycle tyre range. It is designed for long-distance touring enthusiasts.

Touring motorcycle fans, who own machines like the BMW R 1200 RT, BMW K 1600 GT, YAMAHA FJR 1300, HONDA PAN EUROPEAN 1300, KAWASAKI 1400 GTR,  TRIUMPH TROPHY,… demand specific tyres that deliver safety, comfort, long life, stability and sheer riding enjoyment irrespective of the conditions*, and even when a high number of kilometres have passed under their tread.

Developed in exactly the same spirit and to the same rigorous standards as the MICHELIN Road 5, the GT version packs the technological advances that are a hallmark of the other tyres that make up the Road 5 range.

To address the exacting demands expressed by owners of this type of motorcycle, the MICHELIN Road 5 GT places the emphasis on performance, notably on wet roads, along with stability and efficient braking, especially in instances where riders are caught out by poor weather. Following in-house comparative tests, the new tyre came out on top in terms of grip and braking performance on wet roads, even when as much as 50 percent worn.

The MICHELIN Road 5 GT benefits from additive metal manufacturing technology which permits the making of highly sophisticated moulds, as well as the incorporation of MICHELIN XST Evo technology whereby the tread pattern’s sipes widen to increase the tyre’s sea-to-land ratio, and thus maintain its water-clearance capacity, as the tyre wears.

  • More confidence in all conditions, even when 50% worn
  • Number one for wet grip on the road
  • Even when 50% worn, experience exceptional braking in the wet

Michelin do not recommend the 190/55 ZR 17 MICHELIN Road 5 GT motorcycle tyre for use on any BMW K 1600 motorcycle. This includes all years and all models of this motorcycle. Michelin continues to recommend the 190/55 ZR 17 MICHELIN Pilot Road 4 GT as a suitable replacement tyre for this motorcycle.
