I have these tyres fitted to my Triumph Daytona 955i - compared to the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's I had before there is no competition. The Dunlop's give a real confidence inspiring ride, the front is great, and if you decide to run a little less pressure in the tyres you get even better grip (this is their NTEC technology). I have completed around 4K kms, and the rear is now getting a little near the wear limit, but the front is still going strong.

The only negative point I have, is that my tyre fitter could not balance the front tyre - now I don't know if this is because of my wheel or the tyre, but he tried a couple of times to move the tyre on the rim to get the weight within spec, but he couldn't. This does induce a v. slight front wheel wobble, if you let go of the bars - I hope this was just this specific tyre and not all of them!

Yeah I liked my Sportsmarts on my Blade before it was sold. Very confident tyres. I have a new pair of Diablo Rosso Corsas on my Street Triple R as this was what they come with from the factory but I need to wear them down quick and get back onto Sportsmarts!
