Given 93% while driving a (120/80 R14 S) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
Using this tires on the 250cc scooter and grip like train on the rail. Grea ton both wet and dry (in torrential rain of Malaysia), and confident on the corner at speed. LImited by the bravery of the rider. Tire is fitted at the front (reverse tread) as the similar tire but 150/70-13 is at the rear. Wear seems to be good at 3000km, and expected to be able to last another 12k km.

Are cheap winter tyres safe, or a false economy? Watch this video to find out!
Given 30% while driving a Ducati Monster 796 (180/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,500 average miles
I couldn't agree more with honda rider who said it suddenly lets gor. I mean, when the surface gets cold, you are literally all over the place. I got them as standard on a Ducati Monster 796 and the damn thing just doesn't give you the propper grip unless the conditions are perfect ie. rough and hot and DRY!!! sufrace. The other day I was caught in a heavy rain and let me tell you that it wasn't pleaseant. I was doing about 10 mph when braking very lightly for the intersection and the bike just would't stop. I have to thant luck alone for not falling. I cannot give a propper feedback on wear though, because I've only done about 1500 miles.
Do I recommend the tires? Absolutely not!!!

Given 43% while driving a Honda CBR 600fm (160/60 R17 R) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
In warm dry conditions the tyres feel nice. They grip well and are decent tyres. In cold, wet conditions they are awful. They break away with little or no warning. I've been spat off my bike once and had a couple of close calls too - so much so I simply will never trust the tyres again. The rear tyre specifically is a liability. Grip, grip, grip and then nothing. It just lets go. I know a few riders who have crashed in similar conditions using the same tyres.

Given 78% while driving a Yamaha TYDM850 (120/70 R17) on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
I'm no racer but I make good progress and the Diablo Rosso has provided everything I was after in a tyre with more grip than I can use, good feedback and nice nutral steering. Although it seems to be wearing in an odd pattern and quicker than I was expecting so how it lasts and steers when it's more worn remains to be seen!!
