Pirelli Sport Demon Sport Front Touring Tires
Decent tire, decent tread life.
I bought the sport demon to replace the stock tires on my 2011 CBR250R, and I've been continually impressed by them. I ride in the (almost) snow, rain, wind, and various bad weather and never had an issue. The only time I've been able to break grip is with a hard rear brake slide. Tread life is ok on a 250 cc bike, I'll get about ~6000 miles out of the rear before I hit the wear indicators. Overall good tire for what you pay, but I've noticed that the prices are beginning to rise.

Excellent front tire
These tires are fantastic! The tread life is a little less than ideal, but it's worth it to have a sticky front tire. I really like the performance in the wet.
I put them on my 98 concours and then drove to mexico from minnesota. I spent a six hour day of riding in the rain.. these things are great!

Amazing tire, however short lived
This tire performed well in every area except for longevity. I was hoping for 7k but after about 4k the tire started to square off. With that being said it was aggressively ridden on both street and track on a 1000cc bike. Under heavy braking and at 40 degree lean this tire never made me nervous. Luckily it's just around the $100 price range so I don't mind replacing it annually. But, it would be awesome if Pirelli got 40% more life out of this tire.
This is a tire that's never going to fail you. It's confidence inspiring and gives great feedback not to mention they come up to temperature incredibly quickly and balance very well.

Awesome traction and great life
They always say that tired are the most important part of keeping control of your motorcycle. These tires rock!

Great has good grip even on wet roads. I've had this front tire and back tire for a while and they both work wonders.

Great replacement tires for a Thruxton
The tires performed great through Deals Gap and the Blue Ridge Mountains, even in the wet.

it seems like a very good tire for a rainy day. But that zig-zag groove vibrates my bike when I'm going less than 35 mph. Makes it tough to rate, it's a good tire other than the vibration. It has its place, just not on a bike that's going to spend a lot of time going 30 mph on dry pavement.

Considerably better than stock.
I've been riding with this tire on my bike for about three months now and it has been great. I'm certainly no expert, but I have noticed much better grip than I was getting on my old stock tire.
