    Rear, 16 reviews. 4.9 of 5 stars. On a Honda CBR600RR – great cornering, handles well in the wet. Another says tires take all the throttle he can throw at them. Another rode in 30 degree weather and warm-up was quick, wet traction is solid. On a ZX10R – did first track day on them, nothing but good to say, excellent feel and grip at the track, not one slip, was able to push the bike to riding limits. Another has used Metzeler, Bridgestone and Pirelli, will get another set of these tires. On a ZX10R – excellent handling, quick turn in, awesome in wet and wear is good, rear spins on exit from corners, felt BT016 did not spin. On an SV650 – prefers over Pilot Power 2CT, feels much more stable in turns and straights.


    Used to run Pures, Pilot Power 3 much better. Much more confident on Pilot Power 3. Another said the tires did extremely well at the track, softened up nicely, got best lap time yet.


    One rider installed the rear, very little weight to balance and grips beautifully.

The tire has a flexible carcass that provides good road feel. Handling is neutral. www.gsxr.com One report of track day use, when the tire starts to wear it goes downhill quickly. Another did a track day and had no problems.
