I ran the power 2ct for a long time and they were a great tire and confidence inspiring. I just switched to the pures and I am impressed. The bike feels more agile and grips great. I haven't thrashed it hard yet with the Pures.

I had the pures on my 600RR and LOVED them! Before that I had the original Dibalo Rosso tires before the II's came out. I put a decent amount of lean on those Rosso tires, only had an 1/8" of chicken strip left on the rear and those tires never saw the track. Got a little too cocky with those tires in fresh rain and low sided at about 15mph, lesson learned lol.

With that being said the pures took very little break in before I started putting some lean angle into those tires as well. When I was doing the research on those tires and they were talking about the bike being more agile due to 2lbs loss in rotational weight I noticed it right away as soon as I started flicking the bike side to side....

Haven't used bridgestones or dunlop street tires (used N-techs) but for a street tire I would always buy the pures hands down!

The Sportsmarts are an N-tech tyre too ( if you can believe the sidewall LOL) and are worth trying if they are available in your country. Pretty sure they dont sell them in the US though.

I have stayed with the Pirelli supercorsas. I'm on my third rear and second front. More expensive, but I really like the grip.

I prefer the old style wagon wheels on my daytona. You know the ones that are made of wood:)

Re: Which Tires Do you Recommend?

Rossa II's on my 1198s get roughly 4500mi out of rear 6500 out of front. Drag knee every back road ride, no chicken stripes. Tires stick like glue.

These wear numbers seem crazy...I won't even get to 6k miles on the rear on my 2CT road's let alone the stockers or the Powers!

The Dunlop Q2 is a great street / track day tire. Lots of stick and decent mileage.

It all depends on what you are doing with your bike and your riding style.

Every bike I've owned had different tires on it. What I liked on one bike felt like crap on the other. For the street I prefer tires with longer life, on the track I want feel and grip.

I like the Q2for Track days
I use Power cup race tires for the race bike
I use Michelin 2CT for the street bike.
