Hey Nick, i am running Pirellis diablo rosso corsa on my s1000rr, they warm up really quick and are a lot better than the BT016's which i currently have on the duc. I got almost 2700 miles on the rear tire!

I love the Q2s. I ride aggressive and they have been good to me. I switched from the BT016. At 28psi they did just fine at the track.

Don't forget the site sponsors.

They can probably get you a better deal overall with mounting included.

if you order online just make sure they are less than 4 months old, we all get our tires from jk performance, he can get the tires in 1 day and mount it for you in less than an hour!

I have a brand new set of Micheline Pure's at my place that I wont be using anytime soon. I bought those and did not get them delivered in time by the time I sent my bike for service to MV San Antonio so I replaced the tires at the dealer there with same tires and kept the Pure's when they arrived.

If you are interested let me know. If not, I already have spare for when I need new ones. No big deal

By the way, rear tire is 195-55-17 which not everyone can fit in their bike.

The BT016 and Q2 are pretty much the same in grip; I get more feedback from the Q2 as compared to the BT016

Honestly, to me the Q2 turns slower and feels heavier than the BT016 at the same pressures.. added a couple PSI and its much better.

Haven't tried the Pures or the Pirellis but sounds like the wear will be more compared to the BT and Q2

Whichever tires you decide on, please post your comments on this thread:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...re#post2947496

Add in your bike type and riding style for comparison..

I have the Power Pures on my track bike.

Coming from Power Ones, they're not as good but they're better than BT-016's in my book. Much better.

My bikes a bit heavier with more power, so I am not sure how it will like the Pures... guess I'll have to try them some time.

My 1200 Bandit flat killed a rear 2CT in the hot summer months in less than 3000 miles, and it got greasy as FK when hot.. was NOT a good combo.. and it had about 65 HP less than the 12R does.

2009 Triumph Daytona 675
2012 Triumph Daytona 675R





My bike came factory with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa Sp's
Pros: Great Grip
Soft compound - molds to the road
Don't feel as many imperfections of the road
Great street excellent track tire
Light weight
Warm up fast

Cons: cost
Life span - I got my bike with 3,000 miles replaced both exactly @ 6,001 miles
Cruising around the neighborhood it was easy to slide the rear tire ( not warmed up) but riding aggressively never had that issue.

I switch to BT016 Front & BT023 Rear
I don't like them, I don't think these tires fit this type of bike. I've had them for 800miles
Pros: Decent price
Longer lasting
Grip is already available even when cold
More of a straight line tire
Good looking

Con: harder compound I feel the road a lot more
Heavier tire hard to explain but the rear tire seems heavy, its like Its like its dragging.
Harder tire to trust at high speeds I don't like to feel every little imperfection in the road.

I believe the Triumph Daytona 675 is a bike made for the track with that being said, I am having a hard time trusting the Bridgestone tires I don't believe these are the right tires for this bike. Straight line pulls the Bridgestones feel sold and planted in the rear, I am having issues keeping the front end down or from dancing around from High RPM shifts. During aggressive street riding I was getting more feed back from the road than I was use to. I get a little shake with the Pirellis but I never had that much so I had to get the suspension set up, I am aware I also need a steering stabalizer. The pirelli's seemed to corner better even without the suspension set up I didn't get as much "hop" in the rear or shake in the front (before the suspension set up my front was too stiff rear was too soft). Subconciously I keep thinking the 023 rear is going to step down on me while riding aggressively in a turn because there such a harder tire. I like the BT0's when I 1st got them because they were rounded thus making the bike a lot easier to tip in, my old set had the center line worn down. As far as rain tires by looks alone I would got with the BT016 over the Supercorsa, they look to tread through water better.

I think the BT016/23 are great street tires, possible good track day tires defenitly level 1 maybe level 2. I would feel more comfortable with the Pirelli tires in all 3 classes. The Supercorsa are I think are overkill for the street, granted you can never have too much grip, but unless you always late or are constantly pushing your bike there not need for these on the street.

Texas Lurch made a great Thread

Keep in mind the 023 is a sport touring tire.. more tread for better rain manners, and I think they are a bit heavier than the 016.

The 16 liked a little less pressure than my Pilot Powers and the Q2, what are you running cold PSI?

Yeah I so I figured they be harder to longevity but I don't like the 016 either

Super corsa 32-30psi Front 34-32psi Rear (didn't check them as much)

BT016 36psi BT023 34psi (checked religiously)

For heavy street use/track use go with. 016's definitely. The rosa sc will not last long at all! I have used numerous sets of 016 on busa, k7 750, r1 and loved all of them. An have ran other brands and non compare all around.


Also cone by Motorcycles Unlimited and well get you taken care of
