These tires are the best tires I have had on my 05 Honda silverwing 600cc scooter.I have used Bridgestone, Dunlap tires before an not happy with those tires. I noticed a big difference in cornering, stability, and wet traction right away. I have been buying from Motorcycle Superstore for several years now an are very happy with customer service dept. When ordering this set of Pirelli tires in April, the tires were lost by UPS, and had to wait 8 business days before I could get another set of tires. I called Motorcycle Superstore soon as I knew there was a problem, after 5 days Motorcycle Superstore shipped out front an rear tires on Friday an I had them on Tuesday. Thanks for super fast service,

Great replacement and improvement over the OEM Chinese tires. Way smoother ride. Absorbs all road irregularities. Good WET traction, same as dry basically (I do not ride in the rain, but I do after it stops and the road is still wet).Mileage: cant tell yet, but it will be probably excellent for such a light bike (250cc), since it was designed for cruisers. GREAT braking. Great.Highly recommend a set if your idea of a ride is a relaxed one.

Had a blow out on my triumph trophy rear Pirelli St tire. Could not patch so had to replace. Put Pirelli GT spec A and after 200 miles so far so good. Overall ride feels a bit "heavier" than before. I usually drive about 150 miles every weekend with wife and loaded bike. I think it is going to do just fine. Previous tire had 6,500 miles and still good thread but ran over object in highway which busted it instantly.

This is the second set I've put on my 1983 R80 BMW. They're quite similar to the original fitment, including a tendency to follow Bay Area rain grooves. But great mileage, including a lot of hard riding on twisties. In fact, I changed them out only because a track school I was riding wanted new tires. So they put me in the B group first. (I admitted I hadn't been on the track in over 35 years.) By mid morning I was passing everyone and moved up to A with the big kids. There, the bike was the slowest on the track, but those tires were amazing, immediately hauling me down from top speed (all of about 90) to 15 with nary a squeal, keeping me in contention through every tight corner, and sticking through the fast sweeper as if on a rail. (This was the "technical" Sonoma County Raceway - formerly Sears Point.) On the off-camber right-hander I came in too fast and the rear jumped out but caught instantly without drama. After about 50, 2.5 mile laps, there were still some mold nipples showing on sides and center! Impressive! Stickiest hard tire I've ridden.

I bought the Pirelli Scorpions for my Honda XR650L. They provide great traction and a smooth ride if you mostly ride on the road, as I do. I only got a little over 3000 miles out of my last rear Scorpion, but it is understandable for the way I ride it. I liked it so well that I replaced it with another one from Motorcycle Superstore.

I just got an f4i that came with these tires. Warning: I usually ride track on a fireblade. These tires are hard as a rock. Very stiff in cornering, a little too stiff. They take a while to warm up and are less than confidence inspiring. I have only put track miles on them, but I can tell they aren't for me. I've been riding Dunlop Q3 since they came out and wouldn't recommend any thing else for anyone for any reason. Anyone reading this, find better tires.
