Hi, All. I ride a 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 RAVEN.

I bought my bike with 0 miles. My first set of tires were the factory Qualifiers that lasted 4,300 miles. After that, I installed a set of Dunlop Q2's that lasted me 6,373 miles.That's a total mileage of 10,673. That mileage is when I installed the Pirelli Angel GTs. Today, my rear tire needs replaced. Guess what my mileage is... 19,882 miles. That REAR Pirelli Angel GT rear tire lasted me 9,209 miles!!

I've done long rides from TN to Kansas and back and from TN down to West Monroe, LA and back. I've had that bike since February 2013. Much of the riding has been done with my fiance on the back. She was on the back on that trip from TN to West Monroe.

I've had this tire in heavy rain at 100+ miles an hour, NEVER AN ISSUE. I've NEVER had a problem with this tire slipping. And it's got the highest mileage in any tire, I'd be wiling to bet. For as long as I ride sport bikes, this is the tire I will buy. hands down.

I think I can probably get another 1,000 miles out of the front before that one needs replaced. Usually I'll run the rubber flat but I'm doing a long ride to Kansas when I'm moving back here on the 20th of October. Right now, the wear bars are just flush with the rest of the tread which means the tire will no longer tread water. My big concern is getting caught in the rain now.

I've already placed my order for another rear. Thank you, Revzilla for supplying the best in equipment and having the very best customer service!!!

Sporting performance, touring durability
I put a set of Angel GTs on my 1200 Multistrada at the recommendation of my dealer's service manager. They replaced the OEM Scorpions, which lasted under 4000 miles. I now have an additional 3000 miles on the bike (and the Pirelli Angel GTs) and they have been excellent. I've worn the rear tire edge to edge, (no more "Angel GT" script there) but the tire has not squared off and it looks like another 4000 miles or more will be easy to attain.

The MTS is a big, powerful bike that eats tires when used in battle mode and the fact that the Angel GTs grip solidly and will return upwards of 8000 miles on a heavy bike has me convinced that Pirelli was deadly serious when they introduced this tire. They did very well in rain, didn't aquaplane, loose steering sensitivity or their connected feel on a cold, wet ride between Portland OR and Shasta City, CA. Turn in is neutral and immediate without being overly sensitive and they do not fall into turns, something that the Scorpions they replaced had a tendency to do.

Pirelli has a solid hit with this tire for those of us who want excellent real world road performance and long wear. They work right from the start even when cold too. And, their ride is compliant and comfortable as well.

The one thing I should mention is that they do seem sensitive to pressure. Overinflation will make them feel less secure and somewhat greasier. I noticed this when experimenting with pressures while seeking to find the ideal for my bike and riding style. As it happens, for me the recommended pressures worked best on the road.

Highly recommended and finally a worthy competitor to the PR3. In fact, it's hard to know how they could have done much better with them. I will replace these with another set when they are finally worn.

Great tire so far
I purchased this tire as a replacement rear for my 2013 Kawasaki ZX636R. I've only put about 500 miles on it so far, so I can't really speak to tread wear and I haven't had any wet traction experience with it. A little background...This is my first bike I've got 20,700 miles on it and this is the third rear. Most of my riding is commuting to/from work so I'm pretty easy on my tires for the most part. I rode the original Battlax rear pretty easy since I was a new rider and it developed a really bad flat spot. When I finally replaced it at about 9,000 miles the metal banding was beginning to show. I went with a Pilot Road 4 to replace it and immediately noticed a drastic improvement in grip and overall a much better feel. I felt a lot more confident leaning the bike on the Pilot. I got roughly 11,000 miles out of the Pilot. The center tread was gone with a little left on the sides. It was more evenly worn than the Battlax. I attribute that to the fact that I became a better rider with a tire that I felt more confident on. Now at 20,000+ miles I decided to give the Angel GT a try. This tire looks great on my bike! It remains to be seen whether they will have the longevity that I saw with the Pilot but I definitely feel confident leaning on this tire. The grip is a little better than the Pilot in my opinion, they have a nice solid feel when leaning into turns. I have a feeling I'll be going back with this tire again. I love the feel of the bike on this tire so if I can get decent wear life on the tire I'll be a very happy man.

live long and prosper
8000 miles on a liter sport bike in Colorado twisties, and just getting to the point of needing a new rear. Front could still go another few thousand. slow to heat, and quick to cool so theyre not a track day tire, but you can still get a knee down with confidence and good feel. You can get a bit more grip, and Knifes edge handling from other tires, but theyd be hard pressed to last as long. Warm em up before hitting the turns, or get caught in a sudden down pour. Either situation will leave pleased with these shoes.

Best grip and life so far!
I've only had the Angel GT on the rear of my s1000RR for a couple months now, but I can tell you this, it doesn't get slimy feeling in the hot weather like the road 4's and it has lasted longer than my continental sport Attack 2 by far. I've put about 3-4 thousand on it already and it doesn't even look like it has worn at all, and I am not one to just putt around town or be in the back of the group ever. I am definetly going to get this tire again unless another longer lasting stickier tire is invented any time soon.

Outstanding tires
First of all, I love Pirelli Angel tires. I have a sport touring bike and I have been riding on Pirelli Angel ST's. I got approximately 9000 miles out of the rear tire, and about the same on the front. The Angel GT A spec is perfect for a heavier bike, but the standard GT is aimed at a lighter sport bike. What do I like best about the Pirelli Angels? Handling. The transition from full left to full right and back is amazingly effortless and sure footed. The Angel GT's have the bonus of being dual compound tires which will add plenty of miles to the life of the tire. I have ridden Bridgestones, Dunlops, Metzlers, and one set of Michellin PR2's and I absolutely prefer the Pirelli's. Tire preference is like Art...what one person loves, another hates, lol. But I heartily recommend these tires.

Best of Both Worlds
After riding a number of sportbikes, and running track days I was a bit skeptical on how good a sport / sport touring bike could be. The Yamaha FZ1 is a great compromise between sport and tour. The Angel GT tires are the same. They deliver as much grip as any sane person would need on the street, wear very well, and give good feedback while riding.

I've put about 1,500 miles on my set and have not had any issues with grip. The feel they have give confidence to roll through corners and never think twice about your tire choice. Can't say too much about wear except that they still look new, with only slight, visible signs of any wear. I don't ride much in the rain, but have been caught out once or twice, again....no issues with wet grip. I do ride much more conservatively whenever it rains, but that's just common sense.

I like the feel of the profile of the tire. Rolling in and out of corners is spot on. Mid corner stability is also very good. Recommended pressure for my bike is 42psi, and I've found that they feel best at that pressure or just above.

I'd recommend to anyone who wants basically a sport tire that wears like a touring tire.

Best tires so far.
I have about 4000 miles on these tires and there is still plenty of tread left. They handle beautifully and they are very good in wet conditions. Definitely an improvement from the stock Battlax tires that came with my 2012 Yamaha FZ8. Unless future reviews suggest that there is a better tire for wet and dry use, longer treadlife and better handling, I will be going with these awesome tires again in the future.

Good replacement tire on a K1600
I replaced the stock Z8s with a pair of the Angel GTs. I went with the "A Spec" given the bike's weight. Turn-in is vastly improved over the Z8s, as is steady-state cornering. The big K-bike will never be a ballerina on a winding road, but the Angel GTs make it feel like it's lost a hundred pounds.

I haven't been caught in a real frog-strangler yet, but in moderate rain the wet grip is again far superior to the Z8s. They get a little tricky on tar snakes and wet pavement marking paint, but most tires do.

I've got a little over a thousand miles on them, and they seem to be wearing reasonably well, though they've picked up a bit of a harmonic just off the center of the tread. I've been vigilant about inflation, so that's a little troubling.

Still and all, these are a great tire for one who tends to ride a bit aggressively on mountain roads.

What's the benefit of having an A-spec tire??
A shopper on Oct 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The A spec tire has a reinforced belt design so can better handle heavy loads. If you call Pirelli the can say what is recommended. I ride a Conc ours C14.

Looking to replace my stock Dunlop Roadsmart II on the Ninja ER6F. Confused between the Michelin Pilot Road 3 and the Angel GT.
I am more of a weekend canyon rider who also needs good mileage and grip from the tyres.
Which one is a better choice? Is there THAT big a difference between the GT and the PR3?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2013

I was in the same place you are about 3 months ago before I purchased my Angel GTs. The Road 3s and Angel GTs are extremely similar and I was torn between which one was a better fit for me. Just like you, I pretty much only ride on the weekends up in the twisties. I've got a ZX-14, so I'm not leaning it down quite as far in the corners as my friends on 600-1000s, so I really didn't need a tire that was primary designed for cornering and track riding. Plus with the added weight of my ZX-14, I wanted a tire that would last longer than say the Q3 or Pilot Power 3s. Finally, I wanted something that if I did come across rain, would perform very well.

After doing copious amounts of research, I determined that the GTs were a better fit for me than the PR3s. Pirelli tested them not just on sport tourers, but also on super sports. The reviews from the super sport riders were incredibly positive. They all said they felt very confident with the GTs in all riding conditions. I also read some negative reviews about the PR3s' quality over the long term. I also didn't like the PR3's siping.

So, I got myself the GTs and could not be happier. I've ridden on dry and wet pavement. I've slabbed it just as much as I've tried to drag my knees in corners. These tires are simply amazing. They do everything and they do it well. I was both comfortable and confident in all riding conditions.

Now, that's not to say the PR3s are a bad tire. They are also great. However, they seem to be more geared towards the commuter and tourer only crowd. That said, I've got a friend who rides an R1 with PR3s. She loves them and both commutes on her R1 as well as takes it to the track.

Either way I think you will be happy. The PR3s and GTs are both great tires. I just think the GTs are geared more towards my style of riding and look a lot sexier than the PR3s. I've got to hand it to the Italians, everything they make is a work of art, even their tires, haha!
How does these compare to the Michelin pilot POWER 3s? They seem similar but which one offers more?
A S on Apr 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have never ridden Michelin tires (riding since 1963). The tires I rode just prior to buying the Angel GT were Battlax 023. Compared to the 023 the Angel GT are much lighter in steering and have slightly more dry grip on my 2006 R1200RT. (I live in San diego and it rarely rains here, so don't have data on wet grip). I have just over 8000 miles on this set and am about ready to replace them. I will get another set of Angel GT. I like them better overall than the Battlax and the Dunlops I have ridden in the last 10 years. hope this helps
I have a 2009 BMW K1300S, and haveing a hard time trying to decide if I need the (A) Spec version of this tire. The bike is not exactly light but neither is it a large bike. i've tried to find some some specs related to the (A) spec version from Pirelli but with no luck. All I know is the (A) spec version has stiffer side walls and is meant for "heavier bikes" but surprisingly they both have the same load index , there is no specific weight range recommend for either version. Has anyone bought this tire for the k1300s, and if so what version?.
A shopper on May 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you're not loaded up with sidebags and/or a passenger, stick with the regular version. If you're doing serious touring with a heavy load, get the A spec.
These tires are fantastic, by the way. I commute every day and get >8K miles out of a set and I just did a track day with them and they were great!
Are these tires suitable for a lighter bike such as a Suzuki V-Strom 650?
Steve S on Jan 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tire is great for any and every bike!! You will defiantly not be disappointed
My bike recommended my old oem tires used a pressure of 36 front and 42 rear. Should I stick with these pressures for this tire as well?
mrapplecastle on Jan 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Is up to you. I ran 39 lbs on my front tires with the OEM Dunlop's as well as the Pirelli Angel's and 42 lbs in the rear. My bike handles better with the over inflated tires. I commute 160 miles round trip and I don't bother to check my tire pressure every day but by adding a few pounds of pressure I never run under inflated. I usually check my tire pressure once every three weeks.

I got about 9,500 miles on my Dunlop's front tire and about 11,400 miles on my Pirelli Angel and I get my needs for speed met every time I jump on the saddle. On the rear I average about 11k but I ride with a passenger or a computer bag and I weight over 240 lbs.

Is a matter of preference, In my opinion I rather have a few additional pounds of air than viceversa.

I do the same thing with my car's tires and get the expected mileage every time. In addition to frequent tire rotation and balancing.

Let me know if additional information is needed.
Hi!!! I ride a 99 Gsxr750, I ride very often and now its time for tires. Im just beginning to turn sharply into turns and I need confidence inspiring tires. Now my question is should I go with a tire like this or should I go with Q3s or S20. I don't do track days just mostly highway and canyon runs?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Q3s are very confidence inspiring, especially in corners. They are super sticky and will grip extremely well in warm/dry weather. However, if you ride often as you say, Q3s and other tires made for the track will wear very quickly, especially if you do a lot of highway riding. The reason for this is that these track tires are made out of a very soft material that has a lot of grip, but wears fast. Angel GTs on the other hand also have soft/grippy material, but it's located much further out on the edge of the tire. That way when you corner hard you have the grip that you need. The center of the Angel GT is made from a super durable compound that will give you much longer treadlife for your highway riding. Angel GTs also have outstanding performance in wet weather. So, if you don't go to the track often, ride a lot of miles, and most of those miles are on the highway, I think you will be very happy with the Angel GT. If you are going to corner hard in them, make sure to warm them up a bit first. They aren't as grippy when cold. I hear the new Michelin Road 4s are supposed to be pretty good to, but I don't know much about them. I hope that helps!

BEST ANSWER: Depends on your bike. I would recommend checking your owners manual. I know on my 600RR I run 42 in the rear and 36 in the front. Some may say it's high but I if the rear goes much lower it feels like the tires is flat when I lean into corners. Maybe that's just me but as I said. I'd start with your owners manual.
I have pilot road 3's on and am interested in the pirelli's but im trying to decide between pilot road 4's or the angel gt... anybody have some good advice to which is more preferable? My tires tend to get flat spots on the left side towards the end of there lives. i usually get around 4 to 5 thousand miles on the tires. I am very aggressive with my tires but do not do burnouts.

BEST ANSWER: You will not get the mileage from the GT's that you did with the PR3's. The GT's stick like glue - much better than the PR3's, but you pay a premium for that stick. I used PR2's on my Multistrada and they were worn out at about the 5000 mile mark. I only get about 3500 miles out of the GT's. I have PR3's on my other bike (Sprint ST) and like the GT's better. I will not comment on how the PR3's stick in wet weather, as I try to avoid riding when it rains. My understanding is that the PR3's are best in that kind of weather.

And, by the way, I am also a very aggressive rider who is heavy, so no tires last that long for me!
