Steer clear

Dick in New Jersey – Machine this part was bought for: 2004 HONDA CBR600F4i

Comments On Oct 01, 2015:Steer clear from this tire if you expect a reasonable amount of grip. Bought these tires like above folks. When warm these are OK at best, never really inspired confidence and just a very bland feeling having these tires under you, very little feedback or sense of grip. Lasted about 3k on the rear. Front could last longer but I feel like it will start to cup in 1k miles or less. Spend the extra ca$h and get something other than this!

Decreased wearability

GARY in WA – Machine this part was bought for: 1999 HONDA CBR1100XX

Comments On Sep 06, 2015:I have run this tire on this motorcycle many times in the past, always got over 4k miles riding fairly agressively.
I just ran out of rubber after less than 3K miles on a trip, where the majority of the miles were riding in the rain - easy miles, should have been minimal wear.
I had to go find a stealer to overcharge me for a replacement so I could get home.
Very disappointed in this tire, think I'm done with Pirelli. Earlier this year, I wore an Angel GT out in less miles than I should have as well. It does seem that Pirellis mileage is going down.

Greasy on hot days, slippery in the wet

Eric in CA

Comments On Mar 02, 2011:Because of a screaming deal, I bought 3 of these tires in 190/50ZR17 for my BMW K1200S. I do like the fronts, however.
On the local mountain, I found myself unexpectedly doing tail-out slides as the day warmed up (still double digits). Until then, wearing the peg feelers was easy to do on these.
In the wet, this tire breaks free relatively easily when on the gas. When it comes back it does so in fits and jerks rather than smoothly.
The Michelin Pilot Road and Metzeler Z6, in comparison, don't exhibit these behaviours and stick much better in the wet.
For most riding, including my 30 mile, highly exciting route to work, it's a decent tire.
For extended aggressive riding or wet weather riding, look for a different tire.
