Best tyres for a Kawasaki ZZR1400

Q. I am currently using Avon Storm 2 Ultras on my Kawasaki ZZR1400 but fancy trying Bridgestones what should I try, BT023 or S20s?

I’m not a track day loon but I like to get a move on. But I want them to last a bit!

A. The problem with the 1400 is that is a bit of a fussy bike when it comes to tyres as it’s styled like a sports tourer but with very fast sports bike performance. There are three Bridgestone tyre models you could consider.

The OE 014SL front and 014L rear, the S20Es fitted to the 2012 ZZR1400 and finally the BT021Es, which were OE on the GTR1400. Out of the three, the 021Es will give you the best mileage.
