Pilot Road 2's on mine and I am most impressed.
I like a neutral feel from my tyre - most of the pure sport ones have a definite 'tip-in' that feels more like a tip-over that I do not like. I like to be the one controlling the roll over and the PR2 are superb for this on the Hornet - light, but defined turning right to the tyres edge - great for the twisties!
Grip wise, I have noticed no difference what-so-ever between these and 'sports' tyres. The dual compound edges have a sticky rubber on the edges and IMO if you require more stick on a public road then you are riding way to fast and should take it to the track ....... plus, if we are honest, the pure sport tyres are designed for the 150-180 hp bikes that seriously work a set of tyres. The 919 is just not pushing out that hp to warrant super sticky rubber.
In addition the PR2's look like they will get at least double the kms from a pure sport rubber. :001_smile: And that's on my New Zealand, course tyre shredding roads.
Did I mention I was impressed with the PR2 on the Hornet 919?
