    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    The Michelin Anakee 3 has few reviewes because it is a relatively new tire. All that have ridden it are surprised at the grip and performance because the tire doesn’t look like a typical off-road tire. Consensus is that Anakee 3 is better than the Anakee 2.

    Reviews by Source


    5 reviews. 5 of 5 stars. On a Triumph Tiger – like better than Scorpion Trails, handle well in the cold, very little wandering feel in gravel, no slipping in dirt, sheds mud well. Another says they like the Anakee 3 better than Anakee 2, glued to the road.


    On a 990 Adventure – Anakee 3 feels smoother than Anakee 2, also grip better off road than Anakee 2. On a 1200 GSA – prefer Anakee 3 over Anakee 2, roll better, have better cornering, did as well or better on rocky, sandy, muddy. Another rider feels the Anakee 3 provides a smoother ride than Metzeler Tourance, handle similar on fire roads. One rider got 7,000 miles.


    On a BMW R 1200 GS – impressed and surprised how well they handled, on road is smoother, in turn on road more stable than Anakee 2, front traction very good in gravel, if rear kicks out comes back in line well, good 90/10 tire, carcass stiffer so good for larger bike.


    Tested on a 2013 BMW R1200GS and Tiger Explorer XC. Tire provides great feedback on the road. Took a lot of throttle to get them to break loose. Anakee 3 provides more confidence on turn-in than Anakee 2. www.tiger-explorer.com In DEKRA independent test the Anakee 3 lasted 25% longer than Tourance EXP.
