On a GSX-R750 – like them better than Pilot Powers and Sportmax GP’s, stable around corners. On a Honda 599 – scrape pegs before run out of tire, warm up quick even in cold. On an 09 Hayabusa – get 4,800 miles, ride in all conditions and great all-weather tire.

    Tested at the Streets of Willow. Tires inspire confidence and feedback is excellent, even with adverse riding conditions. Tires worked across a wide variety of skill level. The physical shape of the tire is less aggressive than some racing oriented designs. Riders felt there was good tire value. Estimated that Supercorsa Pro provided 10-15% extra stick for 50% more in price.

    33 reviews. 4.5 of 5 stars. One rider says they didn’t like how the tires handled or how long they lasted. Another says fantastic overall tire, neutral handling makes turn-in easy, tires warm-up quickly, like everything but the price. Another got 4,000 miles, warm up super fast, sticky around corners. Another got 5,000 miles, tire saved him a couple of times, price is steep. Another riding on a track show the tires heat up quick, within 1 lap can be up to speed, good feel and transition side to side. Another says the turn in is a touch slower than the Michelin Pilot Powers but more neutral, feedback at full lean is excellent, don’t stand up when trail breaking, wet grip not as confidence inspiring as Pilot Powers.

    12 reviews. One rider reports eyeball popping grip, and the most progressive tire ever ridden, will tell you if you are pushing it before something bad happens, front has significantly improved riding skill and confidence. Another says great tire and fairly long tread life, great when diving into corners, very stable. Another says they like it better than Dragon Evo. Another says sticky when new, better traction when new compared to Pilot Powers, slippery when cold, round profile vs Pilot Power triangular profile means more counter steering to hold a line, not as stable as Pilot Powers in a straight line, very loose when worn down towards the wear bars, wear faster than Pilot Powers. On a Z1000 – able to scrape pegs and not feel slightest slide. On a Ducati 748 – used mostly for track, could not get the tires to slide, ran at a few pounds higher tire pressure than usual for the bike. Another says good in both wet and dry, no chatter or tram lining, have achieved greater lean angles than with any previous tire.
