New MICHELIN Road 6/Road 6 GT Tire Range
The latest in a line of MICHELIN Road tyre firsts
· Improved wet grip* and longevity** compared to the MICHELIN
Road 5 tyre range
· Performance improvements made possible by a new tread design,
advances in raw materials and optimized tyre architecture

As the latest in a long line of class-leading sport touring tyres, Michelin is pleased
to announce the launch of its MICHELIN Road 6 tyre range, a tyre range designed
to offer riders of roadsters, trail bikes, sportsbikes and GT motorcycles the
optimised performance in terms of wet grip, longevity, comfort and handling.
Alongside the standard MICHELIN Road 6 tyre range, which now incorporates sizes
for big trail bikes, there is also the MICHELIN Road 6 GT tyre designed for grand
touring machines.
Using technologies developed by engineers in Michelin’s R&D centres, the new
MICHELIN Road 6 tyre offers a 15 percent improvement in wet grip* and a 10
percent increase in tyre life** compared with its predecessor, the MICHELIN Road
5 tyre.
These improvements in performance have been made possible by a new tread
design, advances in raw materials and an optimized tire architecture.

Tread Design:
· An optimized void ratio of 14 percent (the ratio of grooves to rubber), which
gives high levels of grip performance in wet and dry conditions. This ratio
does not change when cornering to give consistent feedback.
· MICHELIN Water EverGrip technology – a patented sipe technology
developed by Michelin to give high levels of wet grip and rider confidence
in these conditions. The design of these sipes mean that they open as the
tire wears.
· New groove and sipe angles, with longer edges to cut through the film of
water and grip the road surface.

Raw Materials:
· A 100 percent silica compound featuring MICHELIN Silica Technology
improves grip in cooler conditions and on damp and wet roads, without any
compromise on tire life.
· MICHELIN 2CT+ (2 Compound Technology) front and rear means that
different parts of the tread are optimized for different performance
characteristics. The harder under layer of tread rubber maintains rigidity
during cornering, whereas the softer upper layer in contact with the road
offers very good grip and high mileage in dry and wet conditions.

· MICHELIN Radial X Evo technology – the 90-degree plies on the crown of
the tire ensure a wide footprint giving high grip levels, both in a straight
line and at lean angles. The sidewalls of the new generation of Radial X Evo
tires use a special ply fold that provides even more flexibility and greater
comfort by absorbing road deformations, and at high speeds the tire
remains stable, making it well-suited to high-powered motorcycles. The
overall effect of this technology is that the handling and responsiveness of
the tire are optimized to provide riding pleasure and fun without
compromising on safety.
· MICHELIN Aramid Shield technology is a highly dense, more rigid tire
casing, which helps give excellent feedback and handling. Aramid tread
plies resist centrifugal growth at speed, reduce weight and provide excellent
