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.
