The sport bike forum I'm a member of raves about these things. A relative with a 600rr just bought a set last night and should have them mounted by the weekend. I've heard they are just a cheaper alternative to the Road 2s.
At SWMOTOTIRES.COM these are the current prices including shipping for 120/70-17 and 180/55-17...Pilot Road 2 - $310.90 - BT-016 - $256.90. $54 difference.
Iv got the 016's on my 08 zx10R, i love how they make the bike feel, price is good, longevity not that good, i dont do burnouts or wheelies & the rear is only going to go about 2500 miles, the front looks pretty good still
You know I didnt realize this was an all out sport tire, in fact I thought the whole idea behind the multi compound was more for getting some better life out of a grippy tire, lol..
I'll probably bite the bullet and pickup some PR2's after I break these in and see how they feel at least. Maybe Ill hit the track one day, they would come in more handy then wasting away on the street in 2k miles.. lol.
