No experience with those and actually haven't seen them before. Had to look them up. New-ish model? Here's a quote I thought interesting:
Random shopper wrote:I gave these tires two stars for one reason . Manufacturer claims they are 190/50/17 and they are definitely not . As soon as I saw these tires leaning against my front door from 30' away I could tell I did not get 190 tire . Measuring it with a caliper confirmed that . Free standing tire measured 179 millimeters . Way short of 190 . Bettalex 015R I had on my 6" rim measured 196 so I decided to mount it on 5.5" rim . Mounted Continental Motion measured 178mm. As far as I can tell the only way this tire would be 190 is if it was unfolded flat as a car tire . So , if you need 190 tire for a 6" rim look elsewhere . This manufacturer does not make one . As far as performance . I have maybe 500 miles on them and so far I am happy . For the price you get a lot of performance . Out of that mileage 100 miles was storming the canyons. Because of the flat profile turn in is a little slow but other then that I felt confident on them at full lean angles . It will be interesting to see how long that performance persist and when it will start falling off . BTW I'm riding 2003 SV1000N with full GSXR suspension and brakes . In past few years I used mostly Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and Pilot Race various compounds tires.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Save yourself some money and just tape some pop cans together. It'll do about as good a job as that pipe would. :rofl:

Since I got this app that lets me reduce pics to the small forum size I thought I would post a pic of my beast.
Not the proper riding posture, head and eyes up and forward, back straightish, knees and elbows in, arms bent. That's some good stuff. :dance:
