My bike isn't standard, it has modern running gear, is much lighter and goes very nicely thankyou very much ! I like corners and like my tyres to communicate well. I bought a pair of 3D ultra sport tyres hoping press reports were accurate - they are.
Scrubbing them in didn't take long and with temperatures in the low teens the tyres felt really planted, the front is especially brilliant, it's one of the most dependable fronts I've ever used - always leaves a feeling that the corner that felt like you were pushing it a bit was easily done and could've been pressed harder. The front does need to be run at 36 psi, not lower like I tried to start off with, the rear feels good at 38 psi - I altered the suspension to get the best feel/decent comfort/control. They're a fairly sporty feeling tyre for turn-in, the rear more domed than my recent tyres, but the rate of turn is great for the road. My bike is around 205 kg fuelled, so not heavy, these tyres would seem to suit sporty, sports tourer and sports bikes, I read one review by someone with an FJR1300 who wasn't pleased that the tyres didn't wear like Pilot road 4s, those are sport tourer tyres, not the same.
The tyres are fairly new, so I don't know how long they'll last, if the rear last 3000 miles I'll be very happy, I prefer sporty characteristics to longevity and they fill that requirement nicely. For the price they're brilliant, for any price they're damn good ! Will I buy again ? damn right I will !
I don't know too much about wet weather riding with these, on damp roads they're good though and start to communicate pretty quickly.
