State-of-the-art technologies for exceptional grip
The MICHELIN XST featured on Michelin motorcycle tyres delivers enhanced grip on wet roads thanks to the technology’s patented sipes and reservoirs which increase the tyre’s water clearance capacity. In the case of scooter tyres, a gradual increase in the number of full depth sipes as the vehicle leans into a corner allows the tyre to break through the surface film of water.

MICHELIN PST Progressive Sipe Technology is the perfect fit for XST X-Sipe Technology, road and sports bikes. Our engineers have adapted the technology to the demands of driving powerful scooters of 125cc and more. In town, the precision and responsiveness of the grip should be the best. PST offers an exclusive, patented structure of cross sipes which literally cut through bodies of water giving exceptional grip at all times.
MICHELIN NST (Near Slick Technology) is the revamped version of the emblematic slick tyre. Released by our research laboratories, the carcass features a traditional groove depth of less than 5%. Using this as a starting point, our engineers added phenomenal performance recognized by riders themselves. The result: a tyre perfectly adapted for both the road and race track, designed for sporty and trail bikes.
The entire NST technology leans on its strong point: one of the market’s maximum and most exceptional grips. On certain tyre models, the contact patch is increased by 52% for optimized riding comfort and an overall experience reinforced by a super functional grip. The latter lets you take angles of up to 60 easily, with total control and in complete safety.
This leading technology is featured on the MICHELIN Power Cup Evo for sporty machines and the Anakee III for trail motorbikes.

MICHELIN Silica Rain Technology (SRT) is a leading high-performance technology. In an exclusive collaboration with Harley-Davidson, our engineers designed a silica-rich rubber mix. This extremely functional material provides outstanding grip on cold, damp and wet surfaces for safety while riding. It also ensures responsiveness and unending performance on the road, and a grip that clings to the asphalt.
Withstand the tests of mileage and time and get the most out of its exceptional performance. Enjoy long, pleasant, comfortable trips as you ride with complete peace of mind under any circumstances. The natural resistance provided by SRT guarantees controlled wear and tear and an increased service life. This state-of-the-art technology is available on the exclusive Scorcher 11 model for Harley-Davidson.
