Get it while you can!
Great grip, solid track-record. Fits the bill as a replacement on my Tuono. Get one cheap while they're on their way out!!!

Good performance for mortals
Bought this to replace an OE Bridgestone on a BMW f800S. The price from Revzilla was great and of course the shipping was fast (two days to Chicago). I had a little over 10,000 miles on the original Bridgestones, the rear was ready for replacement, the front could have probably gone a little longer, but I decided to replace both at the same time. I think the grip on this tire is very good, particularly in the wet.

I just put this set of Bridgestones on my bike about 2 weeks ago and I am hands down happy with my switch from the pirelli tires I had. Cornering is better, a lot softer tire but grips so well and great in wet conditions.

Purchased a set of BT016 tires to replace the worn factory IRC Roadwinners on my Ninja 250 and was simply amazed at the improvement these made. Obviously, the OEM tires were never meant for tearing up the track but they were still a competent enough tire. The BT016 made leaning the bike over in curves that much more comfortable that there was still some traction to be had. In the few times I've been caught out in the rain with these tires they have done well except in the deeper puddles, which I don't expect any tire to handle without some butt-puckering going on. I put approximately 5000 miles on the tires before selling my Ninja 250 and while a bit squared (I'm primarily a commuter) they still had a decent amount of life left; I'd wager there was another 2000-2500 miles left. When time comes to replace the tires on my new bike, the BT016 will definitely be at the top of my list.

great price for soon to obsolete tire
I needed a front tire to finish out the season, as I will be replacing front and back over the winter. Since the S20 came out this tire is probably soon to be cancelled. Get a great sport tire now for very little cash. fast turn in and grip.

Awesome tire, at any price
This tire is absolutely amazing! I did my first 2 track days on a set of these, at NJMP (Lightning), and the only time they broke loose was when I took my eyes off of the marks and found myself approaching turn 1 way too fast. Even then, they bit and I ended looking like a hero (completely by accident), instead of high-siding into the next zip code. On the street, they heat up instantly, instilling almost knee-down confidence in taking highway off-ramps. The price they're being offered for here (RevZilla) is insane!!! Get'em before they're gone!!
