good tyres for zx6r g1

I've got a g1 zx6r. Needing new tyres for it but not sure what to get. I won't be doing any track days and try to ride as much as possible in all weathers. Summer the temperature never usually gets over 18C and in winter the weather never gets above 3C. So not sure if I need the most expensive rubber out or if I was to get maxxis tyres whith whom Kawasaki have signed a deal with.cheers in advance

R1 tyres

I'm in the market for some tyres for my 2010. I use it for weekend blasts and the odd trackday. I'd love some GP Racers, But ive got quite a low budget. For my money im looking at BT016 PRO or the old michelin pilot power 2CT. Which would be better, or can you recommend any others?
