*edit- didn't notice this is survey for r*
I don't doubt your conclusion but you're comparing a new tire to an old one.I know my 1200 isn’t an R model but did about 7000km or just over 4000 miles on the Rosso 3s,
Installed S22 battlax at the end of this past season so don’t know how to compare them yet only did 500-700km with them but they felt superbly planted in really sporty riding even more so then the Rossos
I have gone threw 2 rosso 3s on my rear both times there were new lol, I’m comparing to how it handled compared to the new rossosI don't doubt your conclusion but you're comparing a new tire to an old one.
Even a cheap new tire will ride better than a premium tire that's worn-down.
It's not just the rubber compound that contribute to lower mileage.Just my opinion. But your bike is a performance bike. Go with a tire that will stick when you need it to. Unfortunately stickiness comes with a price, low mileage.
I'm glad you brought that up as I was very concerned about those groves.I have been running a set of the Angel GT 2's for the past 3,000 miles and while they are pretty good for my style of riding, the main complaint I have with them is the amount of grabbing the front end does when it hits cracks. The lines down the center (which were added on the gen 2 model) like to grab freeway lines quite badly, to the point that I brought the bike back to the shop immediately after picking it up. The amount it does this has lessened with age, but when I ride my wifes Streetfighter, and then my monster, I can really feel a difference. Not very confidence inspriring so they will be replaced with something else once they are worn out.
There isn't a bad hypersport tyre on the market. Just different. I havent ran S22's, so can't comment on what they feel like. I have had Pirelli Rosso's, and they hold the road as good as any other hypersport tyre. But I didn't like the way they felt.Hi all, 1200R owner here. I am sorry to jump in on this post but I want to replace the tyres on my bike and I'm looking for feedback. I read this guide which recommends the S22 for the 1200R. I've not run Bridgestones on the bike before but have them on my cars. Anyone got any feebdack on them or would you stick to the Pirelli?
It's the category that's important not the brand. Pick any brand flavor you want among the top five manufacturers.Hi all, 1200R owner here.
