I ride every day, and go through 2 to 3 sets of tires a Year, and decided to try this one, First impressions this tire is very well balanced, No mounting balance mark on the tire for install, and I removed all but stock balance weights from rim, no balance problems from 0-130 MPH max speed on my 2000 SV650 mostly stock, I have a Pirelli Diablo SuperCoursa on the rear, there is no comparison for warm up time though the Conti doesn't seem to come close to being warm enough or sticky at speed in a few minutes when the Pirelli is ready for rubbing your shoulder on the ground...though I'm waiting to see how many miles I get, more important at this time. Seems like a good budget front tire so far, and stopping is confident even when wet, Thanks Conti!!! Ride Safe!!! PS: Worked marketing research for over 7 Years the "Style" rating for a tire cracks me up. Seriously if you look for style in a motorcycle tire you need help, a tire MUST perform, I think "Value" in this case would be a more helpful rating...Just see someone saying, Oh! everyone said the tire is terrible and a rip, but it looks really super cool, so I bought it!!! So then "Style" gets a (1) One Because I don't care about style in a tire, just performance for my money.

This is the second time that I have purchased this tired. It works wonders on my cbr1000f. I highly recommend this tire for all sorts of riding due to the fact that the rubber is not just hard or soft. It's in the middle. The tire handles well in the turns and does not lose any on acceleration.
Just installed these tires. Traction is great on the dry surfaces I have ridden. Tire has good cornering stability and sidewalls feel pretty sturdy.
This tire is amazing. installed quickly and easily (My first manual motorcycle tire install, ever)... warms up very quickly, and sticks like it's made of glue. I seriously felt like I could drive up a wall when I put it on... amazing! I'll almost definitely buy another when the time comes. haven't driven it long enough to report on durability, but I assume it, too, will be 5 stars...
This tire is as good as it gets for a durable spirited rode tire. It's lasted for two rear tires or close to 11k miles and isn't even cupped on the left side like most will from the longer left turns we Right side driver do. like its mated rear balanced out with Zero weight after aligning the DOT to the valve stem. No slip in wet or dry on my daily commuter Super Moto 650. Price is a steal when ordered with Motorsport.com super free shipping.
Whats not to like?
Tire managed to handle 140mph the other day without any issues :D and is as grippy as any tire I've ever had. Although admittedly, I am not a track rider, and I can only imagine that you simply would not want to use this tire in that setting.
good tire for themoney
Came packed well. Nice looking tire. Very poor, as in confusing, direction arrow, which caused the tire to be mounted the wrong way. Simply points and says front, not rotation. Tight bead(that's good). Took 3/4 of an ounce to balance. Good in the rain. Seems to have developed a wobble that my previous tire had too, so it could just be my bike(2004 FZ6), but it didn't have it when I first put it on. Only have a couple of hundred miles on it so far. Other than that it grips well and I would purchase again.
great tire for the money. i can't believe these tires don't cost more. well worth the money.
I replaced my 11, 000 mile Dunlop RoadSmart just before the Pyro's Twisted Texas Tour as rain was predicted. My intention was only to use the Conti until the rear Dunlop was fully worn.
The Motion has been a pleasant surprise from the start and I can't say enough about it. I can't tell you what the life will be but this is a great handling tire with good feedback.
I live in the Texas Hill Country and ride the fabled 3 Sisters regularly and this tire holds in the corners. I'm strongly tempted to add a rear and continue with this tire.
Looks good, Grips ok, dont know about wear rate, dont matter much for the price. Maybe not knee draggin tires, but good for the money.
The price was great, and the tire was at my front door quickly, seriously, what more could you want, they did everything.
This is a great tire. I was iffy about getting it but I am glad I did. Ride is so smooth and corners great. I feel really good riding low into the corners with this tire. Will buy another one when the time comes.
I had these tires before. 6K on rear, 8K on front.. then I bought Michelin PR3s. 5K on rear, 5K on front. this time I bought more Motions. can't beat the price. i felt better going fast on Motions over the PR3s. this is on a heavy Katana 750. I get to the edge on these tires.
I was trying to be thrifty. This tire did not want to balance, it still isn't perfect. The first 1000 miles were treacherous and there are still grip issues. Installed on a '07 VFR800.
This tire is great. It has outstanding mileage and good wet grip. Not a very high performance tire though. but great bang for your buck!!!
These tires are great for the quality and money! No doubt about it, for $165.00 for both tire for my 2005 FJR1300, these tires handle great and sure footed, traction is great for everyday commute. Not track tires but I don't go to the track why pay for something you don't use! Will buy again! Just put these tires on already have put 800 miles and they still look brand new!
Great value!!! Great confidence in corners, long life, decent traction. Slippery when cold
