Michelin Pilot Power 2CT Front Tires
Great Design and Functionality
This was the first moto tire I replaced and it was a huge improvement from the economy tire the previous owner threw on there. I unfortunately didn't have the bike longer than 6months to assess tread life, but in the 4,000 miles I put on it, it showed very little signs of use. I was only caught out in the rain once but I was riding for a little while before I even noticed so thats a great quality.

Took it up the canyon and it feels great. I'll buy again from here

Only a 1000 miles on the tire with no wet riding yet but tread seems still new the grip is night and day difference between stock bridgestones and regular pilot powers.

Very good tire
They always felt good to me. Even when badly worn. Which is usually the point I take my tires to. They look really good on the bike. They inspire confidence.

Love these tires
This is my first set of tires I've bought and compared to the original Dunlap's that came with my R6. I love the grip I get with these tires. Best purchase so far

GRIP GRIPY GRIPPIEST!!
These tires have grip.
My bike feels completely different when I put these tires on. They are just confidence inspiring and they have pretty good grip in wet conditions too.
For the street rider (not track) who uses the bike to commute in the summer as well. These are perfect. Long life, great traction, works all around.
Completely worth the money.

Worst Dual Compound Tyre I've Ever Used
I had these tires a while ago and figure I should review them because surprisingly they are still selling. As far as dual compound tyres go I've run on Michelin Power Pures, Bridgestone BT-016's, an Dunlop Q2's, and the 2ct's. I like to buy different and compare. The 2ct's fall dead last in terms of grip, warm up time, and high speed stability (and all very noticeable).
The major set back was the high speed stability coming from the front tyre. I had my suspension properly set and tried multiple tyre pressures in order to fix this problem, but nothing worked. I wondered if it was just a bad set, but then when I researched reviews online and found the same results stated on motorcycle-usa's website. As a matter of fact I had the same review as them. I liked the feedback from the front tyre and wet traction wasn't bad at all, but the dry grip, warm up times, and stability fell short.
I would not recommend this tyre to any friend. If you're wondering the best tyre I've run are the Dunlop Q2's (Q3's are out now!). They warm up very quick and eat bumps with no problem. I also loved the BT016's which were replaced by the newer Hypersport 20's.
Happy riding and please avoid these.
