Best tyres for a Yamaha R6
Q. I have been running Dunlops on my Yamaha R6 and didn’t get on very well with them. I did start looking at Pirelli Diablos or Metzelers, then someone suggested Michelin 2CTs…

A. The 2CTs are a sound tyre with great wet weather performance. But they were introduced in 2006, and in a market where sports tyres have a three-year life-cycle, there is rubber out there a generation or two younger.
For the same money you could get some Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2s or some Conti RoadAttack 2s which are also superior.
