Re: Q3+ vs. Michelin Power RS

I’m running the Q3 plus on my MV. Took off a pair of Supercorsa SCs because they made the bike steer too fast. I haven’t ridden the Power RS but, if they behave like traditional Michelins, they’ll take a while to heat up, but the grip will be amazing, until it suddenly isn’t.

I had a bunch of friends who raced Michelins because they were sponsored and they all complained about the 2 things above, slow to heat and break traction suddenly.

A few complained about the carcasses being to soft at the sidewall, but you’re probably not going to race them in MotoAmerica ��

They do wear well

AFA the Q3+ I really like them. The profile is a bit rounded, so it slows the steering a bit.

Grip is great and, when they do break traction, it’s very predictable.

They seem to be wearing very well
