Reviewed: by Simon Bowen
The new Sportmax Qualifier replaces the outgoing D208 and sits neatly between the surviving D208RR and the sport touring D220ST. It's fair to assume, though, that far stickier, more track-focused adaptations will arrive to generate the racing pedigree left behind by the D208GP.

Really like these tyres, they came as standard on my 2008 Z1000 and I have been using them right upto my last tyre change due to getting so few miles from a rear tyre. Fronts werent too bad (used to get 3-4 re Continue reading...

These came fitted with my new 2010 Z1000, they did their job fine just not for very long, I only got 1500 miles out of the rear tyre, the front about 500 more.

You might still be able to pick them up cheap b Continue reading...
Great budget tire, had these on a 600RR and a Benelli Tornado and was impressed with both. Very hard to find fault with and a small price seals the deal Continue reading...

These came as a standard fitment on my 2008 CBR600. Did a 600km tour, countless spirited rides, regular commuting etc. I got about 10000km from the rear and about13000 km on the front.

fitted these a few months ago to my 600 K4 and they are the nicest tyres I have ever used, they are very confident in all condititons and have been awesome on the road and even done a track day on them. They warm up quickly whilst still giving you plenty of mileage. I cant recomend these rubbers enough

I have fitted these tires on my '92 VFR 750 and i absolutely love them. They are all that I want from a tire, warm up very quickly, brake good, they give me good confidence to lean, mileage is also good on them, i've done 10.000k and they still have a lot of rubber. I also recomand these tires if you want a very good compromise between durability and sport riding.
