Dont be fooled !!.

But then again, most people would be better off just using the BT023's on our rubbish roads rather than pretending they need the BT016's whether standard or pro. If Ron Haslam uses BT023's on his cbr600rr's and cbr1000rr's trackbikes then whats the point!.

Old BT0-16

Had them on my CBF1000, fantastic when new in dry and wet, but after 4000km OMG the handling was crap, the bike fighting me in the bends (just like other Bridgstones I have Had), not a good tyre if you want more than 3000km and good handling, unlike the PR2 and the Roadsmarts

BT-016 Cost

Interesting to see the rear tyre cost at just shy of £170. I have just returned from a trip to France where a bolt trashed a 200 mile old standard 016 rear tyre (UK fitted £150 just before I left). The French replacement was a Pro model at 155 euros fitted & balanced on my GSXR 1000.

Moral of the story is don't change tyres before you go abroad. Square them off on the Paege roads and then get them changed when you are there. Might pay for a few beers at least.

What a joke.

That was ADVERTISING not a TEST.

If it was a fair test it would have been compared against the BT016 on the same bike on the same day with the same rider.

 

A CONTROLLED test. Your test is a waste of time.

Multi compounds?

OEM BT016 is not a multi compound.  Only the aftermarkets are.  These tires came on my Z1000SX.  As a single compound tire, I'm not impressed in the least with side grip.  Hopefully, the off-the-rack version is better.

Bridgestone or Pirelli?

I have a question for those, here, who do understand about tyres ! I commute about 70mls daily at the moment my GSX650F has the OEM tyres, should I change for the Pirelli Diablo Corsa?
