Michelin definitely is not kidding about their tires on wet roads. Just went for a spirited ride around town after it rained with my friend who was completely mystified by how far I had my bike leaned over as if my tire was completely dry. I knew the roads were still wet, but I truly did not know my tires were actually treading standing water through the turns, and the tires did not ever clue me in! The PowerRS firmly tracked my lines as I intended, never slipping for even a millisecond.

I have tried other tires with different manufacturers and have never felt so confident in wet roads than I have with Michelin’s. 
Even in the cold, the PowerRS is a phenomenal tire to have on your bike. Normally, you would want to heat the tire up before heading out to ensure you have optimal grip, but the need to do so is minimal with these tires. Thanks to super soft compounds on the sides, you will still have the necessary grip you can count on.
 The lowest I personally have gotten my bike down to is 57°. One day I will finally go to a track and the PowerRS will be the tires I take with me! I run with 120/70 up front and 200/55 on the rear.

I have been running the Michelin Power RS on my zx6r since December and loved every moment I’ve had on them. Recently I have been only doing track days at a local track called Harris Hill (H2R) and have noticed a big difference in my lap time dropping, and the difference in front end feel I’m getting going into the corner. All I can say is you have to try out these tires if you haven’t already!
