Ducati’s Michelin Power RS ​​

IT’S NOT UNTIL I quickly approach the turning point of a flat, unobtrusive corner at the Losail International Circuit of Qatar and realize it’s not the right-hand corner I thought it was, it’s a lot tighter than I expected. Instead of jumping, I squeeze the Brembo M50 monoblocs up front of the Ducati 1299 Panigle S a little tighter and start to lean, determined to get to the stretch of track I’m looking for.

Learn Everthing About Michelin Power RS

I rode it with almost no fuss and when I came out of the corner, the curse in my Shoei was replaced with the Michelin Power RS ​​front tire, which provided grip when I braked hard and deep into the corner.

More braking, a little extra confidence in the power of the Ducati’s Michelin Power RS ​​shod front, and a little more courage, are all it took to get me back on my feet. It’s a holy trinity that saves me a few times on the overnight test drive through Losail, where Michelin recently held a launch event for its new Power RS ​​sports racing tyre.

Michelin calls it a “defining moment” for motorcycle tires, a moment as important as when it launched the first radial motorcycle tire in the 1980s. That’s the whole explanation. According to the French company, the Power RS ​​offers of it of it grippy, agile and stable, more grip in wet weather than the Pilot Power 3 and Pilot Road, which it replaces in the Michelin range.
