    19 reviews. 4.6 of 5 stars. On a CBR1000 – grippy, handles corners at speed, handles well in the wet. On a BMW R1150R – got over 6,000 miles. On a Hyosung GV-650 – prefer to OEM Bridgestone Battlax, very good price. Another says the tire is very stable, broken loose in deep turns on acceleration, when it did break loose it was predictable, tire wearing evenly. Another says they take a long time to warm up, winds move the bike all over the road.

    32 reviews. 4.6 of 5 stars. One rider got 15,000+ miles. On a SV650S – like them better than stock Dunlops, better grip and cornering, unable to break rear loose in corner acceleration, good mix of cost effective commuter and weekend sport rider. On a FZR 600 – great tire for daily rider, takes a little longer to warm up than Battlax, perform quite well for the price. Another switched from 009 to 006 for better traction, 006 has a lot more grip in turns and faster/smoother than 009. On a ZX6R – used to run Michelin Pilot Powers, 006 ride just as well for less money. Another says the bike turns in sharper, retain grip even with mid-corner gravel and dirt, track straight and true. Another is an instructor and avid track rider, got 5,000 miles with combo track/road use, fell comfortably into turns, performed as well as Pirelli Scorpions, take a little more to warm up.
