Blends good luck finding takes of for a 160 rear. Just go pick you up a set of M3's. You are like me and do alot of riding. M3's are hard in the middle for lots of miles but they are sticky enough on the sides to do what they need to on the track.
Actually, Bridgestone makes a bad-to-the-bone 120/ 160 setup. They have the 090 that I used to race on, and then they have the NEW 016 that Brandon Spradling was ab-s0-lutely flying on at Cresson!

I really want to try those 016's. They look tasty, but I need a street bike first I guess

Well I guess you could use them on the street, but they're not a street tire. It's the new tire for the SV (and others) with the 160 rear for race. The front combo used is a 003/ 016.

ACTUALLY it is $250 that is for a 120/70 BT002 Ride Smart front & a 160/60 BT090. For $260 I can do the same front & the BT016 rear. OR for $300 you can run the BT003 front & the BT016 rear (Same setup Brandon races on). Brandon did a best of 1:42.555 on a bone stock SV650 at MSRH, on these tires.

The BT016 is the newest "street" tire from Bridgestone. On the lightweight bikes the tire is just crazy sticky. We are running them with VERY low pressures, and they are working great. On the larger bikes it will still serve well as a beginner track tire, with the next step being the BT002 Ride Smart. They are still getting great mileage out of them on the street and the softer edges are not getting greasy under moderate trackday pace. On the Lightweight bikes you will be fine. On the bigger bikes, if you experience any issues it may be time to step up to a more track focused tire like the BT002 Ride Smart or the Bad Boy BT003's.
