    27 reviews. 4.5 of 5 stars. On an Aprila RSV – very aggressive street riding, great grip, high confidence factor, wore out rear in 1200 miles. On a 2001 Honda RC51 – like them over Dunlops, Pilots, Corsa III which were previous favorites, very round profile which makes diving into corners effortless. On a Triumph Daytona 675 – track only tire, middle of the top half in intermediate group, get 7 track days from rear, super grippy and predictable. Another says rode track in rain and handled well, got 5,000 street miles out of last set.

    Front turn in was smooth and linear. Rear had a hard time keeping traction on Almeria’s sweepers. Rear seemed sensitive to tire pressure and could not get dialed in. Power slide was well controlled.

    The reviewer tested the tires at the track. Liked the front more than the rear and overall recommended the tire.

    Good comparison of the tire against the competition. Second most affordable behind Dunlop Sportmax Q2. Front 1.1 oz heavier than lightest Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP. Rear is heaviest in the class. Ability to absorb rough pavement is good. Braking is excellent. Grip felt similar to the Dunlop Sportmax Q2. Not quite as much feel when cornering. Tire comparison was between the Bridgestone BT 003RS, Dunlop Sportmax Q2, Michelin Power One 2CT, Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP, and Avon VP2 Supersport.
