Suggestion on tire for zx-14

Looking for suggestion on zx-14r tires (2013)
Did not really like the mezz stock, looking for something that is a good balance between mileage and sporty riding. Pilot 2's?

If you're doing a lot of street riding I would also look into the Pilot Road 4 tire.

Mine came with Q3's, with a 190/55 rear. Handles great, but I don't expect tread life to be super. If it were me, I would go with any of the name brand sport touring tires.

If you value handling more than straightline traction, change to 190/55 is a good idea.

I had the same tire setup on my ZX-14R.

BT016,S20 front with a BT023 rear

big abd torquey zx14 will eat any "sport" bike tire down the center. Look for. Sport bike front and sport trouring rear tire combo.

I ran BT016 on my CBR 1100xx
And run the same on my Suzuki B King. Great tire for the occasional spirited rider.
