I didn't rate durability simply because I've only put a few hundred miles on then so far. I commute on my Yamaha R1, but go out and ride the twisties on the weekends so I selected these tires hoping they'd be better in the wet than full on sport tires. I haven't found anything they don't do well yet. They ride smooth, and this morning I hit the highway in 35 degrees and they gripped wonderfully.4 stars for style just because the tread pattern looks less attractive than some of the other tires out there, though admittedly the better water displacement offered by this tread is part of my whole point in buying them.

These warm up nice and fast, and enable me to lean over further. I run them on my '02 Moto Guzzi Le Mans 1100, and also on my '96 Ducati 916.
The best price on internet for Pirelli tires. Great customer service too
I bought this tire because this is what was on my bike when I bought it, I only got about 1200 miles off the old tire but the bike was used. I took the bike up to the mountains last weekend with these tires and they did perform well, it takes a while for them to heat up and get sticky, good side leaning. I think I will be going to a Dunlop or a Pilot after these wear down. They still are a good tire if you aren't a go hard rider.
I got a flat tire on the freeway and had to be towed to the nearest motorcycle shop where they wanted to charge me an arm and a leg for the same tire. Luckily my stepbrother told me about Motosport. I called and they had an AWESOME price on the tire, ordered it, and it was delivered to the shop 2 days later. The guy on the phone was totally nice, great customer service. I'll only only buy tires from here now, great experience!
I have used this tire before, and had good results. The tire helps you lean more aggressively. The compounds are not too soft or hard so you get good touring as well as track use. if you are looking for Quality on a Budget this is one to buy.
incredible sticky tyre. Goes hand and hand with my Buell XB . Wears quicker than i like, but I'll sacriface some rubber for the performance any day. If you want more out of your bike than this tyre is a must for you!
Put a set on my 6R which I use to commute and the occasional track day. Great tire. Not a super soft race only tire, so I could get several thouasnd miles out of it, but enough grip that I never wanted more on the track. A great wet tire as well and at a wet track gave me a distinct advantage over guys running more expensive rubber.
