IRC Road Winner RX-01 Tires
Great Tire for a Very Reasonable Price
Have been using this tire since I bought my used 1989 CBR600F1; haven't been able to find other tires that are able to fit this sized rim.
Great price for a basic tire that is no to expensive; provides great wet traction and handles very well.
Excellent tread life, I have only needed one front and 4 rear tires or so in the last few years and I commute almost every day to work on my motorcycle.

Oe tire ninja 300
I've got over 4000 miles on my 300 since feb and these tires still look good. But they should since I only have a 300... I'm getting the diablo Rossi 2 now because I got a nail in my rear tire...but it's a good tire just wouldn't buy the same tire if I wanted to.

ok for a factory installed tire.
I bought a 2012 CBR250R and it came with these tires. I think that these tires are ok for a factory installed tires. I think there are better tires but these ones came on the bike and I'm not taking them off until they are dead.But back to the review. All the miles are commuting miles.
As for wear life I have 9888 miles on them and the front looks almost new and the rear has 3/32 tread left in the center. the rear is flattened out because of the highway miles. I do expect to get another 3000-4000 miles out of them.
Traction could be better in the dry it feels a little slick on this bike. cold traction is bad, that starts around 40degrees F and lower These tires feel like you are running in the rain. simply because they cool down fast they don't hold heat very well at all.
Wet traction is ok but i have had previous bikes with other brand tires that hold better in the wet, I have had the rear slip and spin when under low acceleration.
I will be replacing these with a different make model tire when the rear tire is dead.

Good OE tire for Ninjette
I rode a Ninja 250 up until a month ago. I bought it with 2500 miles on it and sold it with 12000 miles. At 10500 I finally replaced the stock IRC Roadwinner rear tire that was getting flat. Front tire still looked brand new.
95% of those miles were 70MPH highway commuting, so obviously they were prone to getting flat. But I was very pleased they lasted as long as they did.

These were the first tires I had on my 09 250r when I first started riding. They did very well on the several group rides I went on through back roads here in East Texas. Still tread life after about a year, looks like it has a bit left as well!

Great all around tire
Bought a set on my Cb400
The 110/ 70 17 looks aesthetically smaller due to the tapered/ pointed design. However, aspect ratio is correct.
Better than the Michellin Macadam 50. If you just can have that Michellin pilot road 2ct (2compound) design it would have been better and perfect for a sport touring.

So Far, So good.
For the price and no reviews out there, I was thinking twice about buying a tire I had no clue about. I had them put on at a local shop. They fit good with no problems. I've got about 500 miles on them and havent had any problems so far. They grip the road pretty good. I have them on a 2004 Suzuki GS500F.
