The continental tire that I purchased is the all around tire for the street. If you decide to ride curves or just straight-aways the tire performs great, wet or dry.

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.
If you want a tire that's gonna last but also hold you to the road this is it. It's not for people trying to moto GP threw some curves. I got 4500 miles out of my last one. That's why I returned to this tire.
Just installed these tires. Traction is great on the dry surfaces I have ridden. Tire has good cornering stability and sidewalls feel pretty sturdy.
I have a GSX-R 1000. Of coarse this tire isn't a MICHELIN, DUNLOP, or PIRELLI. However, it is a GREAT tire to fit a budget. Let me tell you why. This tire has lasted me about 5,000 to 6,500 miles... Which is good for a rear tire. The center strip of the tire is where I get the most riding done. I also do a lot of canyon rides where I live in Utah. I have been wall to wall on this tire and it does great and I don't feel shaky with this tire in the canyon or on the street. I looked up the rating on the speed for the tire and it says 160 miles per hour. However, I can say that this tire holds up at 186 miles per hour which is the TOP OUT (with mods of coarse) speed for my bike and I have done it several times with this tire!!! I have raced a couple of other bullet bikes and several cars that thought they had a chance against me ... LOL ... and this tire has been great and I have never worried about it once. Now lets talk about comfort. Prior to this tire I ONLY used Michelin Power Pilot 2CT (great tire) but I HATED the way I felt about going into a turn. It felt as if I was falling because of how the tire is shaped on the center strip. I wanted a more smooth rounded feeling as if I was rolling into the turn and that's what the Continental Motion tire gave me instead of a falling feeling like I got with the Michelin tire when I was reaping through canyons. I like how it looks on my bike and the size I use the 190/50/zr17. The front tire doesn't show much wear and tear because, well, it doesn't get thrashed like a back tire does, but you can expect that from almost any front tire in the market. As for looks and styling. I think it looks great but the look is a preference thing and only the rider can make that judgment. Conditions, in Utah this season it has rained A LOT and because it has such great big grooves from the center strip to the side walls it dispels water really well. Trust me, I have been socked quit a few times this season! On the over all, I am going to buy this tire again and I do recommend this tire to others. This is my review and I hope it helps you.
These tires are everything you would want and come to expect from quality and performance engineering. I have tried more expensive, brand names, and have now found a goto tire combo that is far and above the standards of your everyday commuter that craves performance of a track tire. I am stoked and a feeling of shopping savvy have urged me to pass this on to everyone in the market for best bang for your buck. Thanks Conti
Its all good with this tire! great grip in the wet or dry. balanced out with zero weight. a great tire for the cost. Hope this doesn't cause em to go up!
For the money it's a great tire. Have about 1200 miles on them so far, no slip in the turns, wear is ok. think i may get 4-5k on the rear.
Can't beat the price and it is the smoothest riding tire I have ever had on the bike. It doesn't even feel like the tires are touching the road. They handle great and even at speeds greater than 100mph it was still extremely smooth.
The Conti Motions are a great tire for the price.
The tread life out last many other brands and the
handling on dry or wet roads for my sportbike helps
me keep it rubber side down.
I highly reccomend these tires as I have purchased many sets of them.
I would recommend these tires to EVERYONE. I'm a cheapskate i;m not going to lie. So the price tag of these tires grabbed my eye right away. Anyways my point being these are worth EVERY penny. They have taken every turn I've thrown at them, and also more. So far I've only put id say 100 or so miles on them so i can't say how they are holding up. But defiantly worth it guys!
Front- 120/60ZR17 B+ Lacks performance but wears well. Adequate wet grip.
Rear- 180/55/ZR17 C- Good new performance but fades quickly. Very poor wet performance.
I purchased a set to replace the badly worn Dunlops that came on my second-hand FZ6N. MotoSport had them at my door in two days! After scrubbing the new off I went in search of some twisties (hard to find in Kansas). Initially I was impressed with the tires performance. The front pushed and mushed some what, but for the money I was happy with it. The rear was very impressive! With a better front knee dragging would be no problem. It warmed up quick and leaned admirably. It was a much stickier compound than I had expected.
Fast forward 1yr and 2500 miles.
The rear is shot and has been for the last 300 miles. No track time, no burnouts, no wheelies, just a poor wearing tire. The first 1000 on it went great but it was quickly down hill from there. The front has held up quite well. It hasn't got any better but it hasn't got worse ether. I expect to get 6000 out of it easy.
Bottom line- Cheap tires. You get what you pay for.
I bought these tires form my 04 R6. I am a new rider and wanted a long lasting touring type tire as I wont be doing any "hardcore" riding anytime soon. These tires fit the bill perfectly. I ordered them and they were at my door step literally 2 days later. The shipping on this site is incredible!!
I get about 12k out of these tires and a try to to ride my FZ1 hard enough to have to replace both tires at the same time. I've never had the rear slide on me (except in the rain of course) and can feel the front wallow a bit when really worn. The 180/55 really lets the FZ roll over.
Came on a Friday and I was expecting it on the following Monday!
Only took .5 ounces to balance!
Slippery at first(as most new tires are), but eventually came into it, and offered great handling and grip for my 2004 FZ6 in sport touring mode.
Only 300 miles so far but cannot see any wear at all!
For the price you cant go wrong, however Dont expect to get much life or performance out of this tire. I barley got 5k miles out of it and my bike got wobbly in hard turns. Its good if you need a tire for dirt cheap, but remember you get what you pay for. I ride a 1200 bandit and pushed the tire to limits on one of my trips to NY from FL. I ride in the mountains of Ny and i will say again this tire is not great in the hard turns be careful.
put on vfr750..ride great handle great, saved money versus the michelins i put on yzf. ALSO motosport shipped fast ...had this tire um extremely fast.
this tire is well worth the money. it warms up quick and will stick to the road like tires twice the price. will buy again.
These are great for the price. They hold the road well and ive burned a couple of sets so far. They heat up quick and grip well in the turns.
I ordered these and after a few rides, noticed a small laceration from God knows what. Could it be a defect? It's odd to say the least. I also noticed imperfections in the sidewalls and manufacturing imprints as well as the tire being more of a 180. It doesn't have the same width as my Michelins or Dunlops... Hmmm. Anyhow, contacted Moto and they were awesome in working out some concerns! Going to gamble on these tires because they do grip for a budget tire. Need I say budget again? Considering I commute mainly on an RC, I hope to get some high mileage out of them. So far after break in, I have pretty good confidence that I didn't have in some outdated Dunlops, so the rest is yet to be determined... let you know in 1000 miles!!!
