    20 reviews. 4.6 of 5 stars. On a 2011 Hayabusa – corners better than with OEM BT-56s. On a CBR600RR – great on cornering and in the rain. On a 2000 Hayabusa – cornering and stability are wonderful. On a 2003 954RR – blows the BT020 away, handles well in wet and dry weather.

    5 reviews. 4.8 of 5 stars. On a 2002 Hayabusa – very stable at speed, corners well. Another says they got 12,000 miles out of their first tire, rode through sleet, ice, rain and hurricane Ike without slippage.
