Which are the Q best tyres for dry-time rid­ing?

MCN - - Garage -

I’m com­ing up to chang­ing the tyres on my 2010 Yamaha R1. I ride two-up all the time and try to make them dry miles. What are the best tyres at the mo­ment for fast road rid­ing? Russ Wood­head, Lin­coln

If it’s high lev­els of dry grip you’re look­ing for, you’ll re­ally like Miche­lin’s new Power RS. I’ve just fit­ted a set on my bike and I’m very im­pressed by the in­crease in con­fi­dence I feel com­pared to my pre­vi­ous tyres when press­ing on. They’re too new for me to com­ment on tread life but Miche­lin are claim­ing sim­i­lar dura­bil­ity to the Power RS’s pre­de­ces­sor, the Pi­lot Power 3, which I would say gave av­er­age miles for a tyre in this cat­e­gory. Other tyres worth con­sid­er­ing are Met­zeler’s Sportec M7RR, Pirelli’s Di­ablo Rosso III and the Bridge­stone Bat­t­lax S21, but per­son­ally speak­ing I think they all trail the Power RS in dry road per­for­mance.
