Just put one on the rear of the 1098, very few miles so far, hope to get more than 1800 miles, like on the dragon supercorsa pro, put on a Pirelli diablo corsa 3, time will tell?

If I understand it correctly the center is harder for longer tread life, and the edges are softer for better corner grip, thus longer life and better corner grip, we will see

I've got them (2ct's) on both bikes, but only about 500-700 miles on them so far and seem to be wearing fine. FYI, 2 track days each in there as well...

I'm planning on putting the sport touring BT021's on soon, they are hard center (touring) and soft sides (sport) so I'm hoping to get some good mileage out of them without compromising my bike's capabilities.

Not exactly what you asked but I put BT002 street/track tires on my 750 track bike.
They have a surprising amount of grip and I think, they have held up as well as any regular street tire.

I had the 'stones 002 street on my 10R and it is down to the wear bar with about 1500-2000 miles on it. Highspeed riding is bad for tires.

I wasn't sure how well they would hold up on the street, thats interesting that they wore so fast. Of course the 10R is a lot of bike and the -002s are intended for track riding at least part of the time, so maybe the edges would take some more of the wear.

It's not as grippy as the 002 race. I would like to try the 2ct on my 10r and it uses 190/55 and expensive as . Maybe one more 002 to wear off the front tire.
