Reviews & Questions
The grip feels very similar to that of the Pirelli, but these have a flatter profile, so steering feels much easier to control. The other advantage is that as the tires get near the end of life, you don't feel dangerous and wooden. As the Pirellis would cup and get near the wear bars, handling would be erratic and diminish confidence.
I finally just replaced my first Shinko front tire, which went 12,000 miles before I reached the side wear bars. The center still had tread to spare, and I probably could've squeezed another 500-1000 out of it if I hadn't been going on a trip. Far and away the most miles I've gotten out of any tire to date. The best I could hope for from a front tire previous to this was about 8k. I'm pretty hard on my tires. Will buy these until they stop making them, and considering a complete set costs as much as 1 rear Pirelli, it's really a no brainer.
I mounted a set of Ravens on my 2006 BMW R1200RT before a 2k mile week-long trip to upstate New York. The bike previously had PR2's that may have made it through the trip, but I knew better than to push it. While I had hoped for beautiful weather, what I got was rain every day but one. But, these tires performed flawlessly and left me feeling confident while riding through less-than-stellar conditions.
After about 1200 miles of time on the bike, I took a two-lap trip around Watkins Glen raceway, and these tires gripped well in the corners. I was also surprised when they didn't "skip" as much over wet tar-snakes and painted lines as my PR2's did. Other reviews stated that the tread style of the front tire seemed to track imperfections in the pavement, like cracks, but I didn't experience this. Very happy I decided to go "inexpensive" and take the recommendation of friends who purchased Shinkos. $150 plus mounting and balancing (another $60), best pocket change ever spent. Something else noteworthy, the shop who mounted these didn't even have to use weight. My nice alloy wheels are now all naked without being spoiled by ugly weight that the PR2's required. YMMV...
I didn't rate the tread life as I've only had them for 2k miles, but friends have said that they have gotten over 10k on their ST's.
