    This is a very comprehensive review of this tire. On a Honda Blackbird – changing line and turn in is very fast, line changes happen almost automatically, stability really stands out. Wet weather handling is at least as good as the storms. Rear at 1.5mm tread at 5100 km, front probably good for 6500-7000 km. Tire profile remained good for 95+% of tire life. For Blackbird will likely be going with Storm rear and VP2 Sport front.


    Ridden on a Sprint ST (replaced Dunlop Roadsmart). The Avon VP2 Sport have transformed the feel of the bike. Feels lighter and more precise than the Dunlop Roadsmart.


    Quick and precise steering. Low marks for grip on bumpy pavement.
