Given 61% while driving a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa AL5 (190/50 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 2,500 spirited miles
The front tyre needs alot of work to come up to temperature. Once tyres were hot on very twisty roads they are superb.

Cold or just warm they dont feel good.

Wear not great. 2.5k miles they are at end of life.

Given 57% while driving a Kawasaki z1000 (190/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 2,850 spirited miles
These were the factory fit tyres on my Kawasaki Z1000sx...

They were grippy on a warm summer day with decent tarmac, not so much in less than ideal conditions. They lasted less than 3000 miles and squared off really quickly with just a couple of motorway runs. When squaring in these tyres they felt really unstable, almost wobbly!

Avoid unless you do a lot of spirited riding on good winding tarmac :)

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 21% while driving a (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 3,000 average miles
These tyres came with my bike. Awful grip in the wet, no stability in corners, awful in the cold, no ability to track a line through a corner. From day 1 until the end or the tyres the bike just drifted off cornering lines. Horrendous experience with them. In the 3 months they lasted they put my life at risk more times than I can comfortably recount. I ride every day, these tyres did not even finish a winter. Tyres went bald on the front within 3000 miles. Back lasted a little better. Profile of tyre is horribly pointy, leaning in for corners feels like you have 2 positions - upright and falling over. No control or confidence in the tyres ability in any weather condition. Even with traction control at highest level these tyres span and lost grip daily with only sensible computing levels of acceleration. Do not buy or use these tyres. The worst feeling tyres I have ever come across. Not only did the front tyre go bald but it actually went totally flat for no reason. No puncture no damage, it just wore itself down and gave up.

(170/50 R17) on for 0 miles
These tyres came as OE on a new 2016 ZZR 1400, they are an excellent all round tyre, Very good in the dry and okay in the wet, they give the rider confidence, I will be purchasing the same tyres on the next set, the only down side is the wear, they wear out very quickly, barely 2000 miles on the rear and it's nearly done.

Honda CBR1000RR10 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 2,500 spirited miles
I have had a couple of sets of these on my '08 CBR1000RR and they provide awesome grip on track and on road. At full lean with the foot pegs scraping i still feel confident once they are warmed up. A little throttle sensitivity is required in wet/very cold conditions but no more than normal.

With mainly road riding with the occasional track day they will do about 4000km. If you take them on the motorway the centers will be gone in no time at all.
