I am really impressed with how these tires transition from turn to turn, They make my bike feel 100 pounds lighter. Low road noise and grippy at extreme angle...well extreme for my bike. They are also quick to get up to temp. Whats not to like?

I ride an 2004, Yamaha FJR1300ABS and have put 59,000 miles on it.
Super in the rain, other brands have made me almost lose it on wet pavement, these do the job stopping, cornering, etc., on wet pavement. If you ride rain or shine, you need these tires. They are worth every penny! I ask my rider friends, "What's your life worth?"
Save your life and buy these tires and put them on your bike! You will love them.
Simply great tires....the hold the road extremely well even in deep corners
You can't beat Motosports price for the combo anywhere
Unless metzeler comes out with a updated tire when im ready for new ones these are definitly going back on my bike
"To answer your question in 2012 we updated many sizes in the Roadtec Z8 Interact range. The tires that received changes are the front Roadtec 120/70ZR17 TL (58W) M Spec. This new front tire (Ip code 2283600) was updated with a new compound and carcass for more performance, wet grip, and mileage. To help distinguish the previous version from the new we have added an M to the sidewall, and this M can be found in a circle that is molded on the sidewall next to the name of the tire. In regards to rear tires that received changes we find that we added a new rear 180/55ZR17 in a O spec. Then we have done the same with the 190/50ZR17 and the 190/55ZR17. We must point out that only the O spec rear tires are being imported to the US while the Canadian market imported both specs. Then all of these 5 new rear tires feature a multi compound design for more performance, wet grip, and mileage. Finally the O spec designates a rear tire that features a 2 ply carcass that helps improve stability and mileage especially when used on loaded down heavy sport touring bikes which are popular in this market. And also in this rear tire case we add an M or O to the sidewall to help distinguish the new Z8 Interact from the previous version."
