Kawasaki zx9r Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental ContiRoadAttack 2 Gran Turismo given 98% (190-55-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 100 spirited miles
I bought these for my zx9r E2 and have only done 100 miles which I commute every day cross country on great biking A and B roads. When I rode out of the garage to start the scrub process they were actually twitchy for the first 30 miles like riding on ice. By 50 miles they felt normal but contiuned the scrubbing process. By 100 miles the confidence already feels very high but I can already feel that the grip in wet and dry due to conditions (fog, rain and dry intermittent patched) that they are truly planted. I cannot comment on lifing yet or the progressive limit but they feel very comfortable and absorb the poor UK road conditions well. I am hoping they last well but that is also down to how much right hand you dial in. Will keep you up dated. Not the cheapest but having been around the Conti factory as an Engineer visiting they are made in germany and the quality of finish is excellent. The rear tire required no weights it was perfect of a bike having done 20K miles. only 8grams on front so something they are doing is making them precise.

Driving on mostly country roads for 3000 spirited miles
I bought these for my zx9R 02 as I commute 100 miles each day when the weather is ok. The tires are incredibly in the wet and you feel like you can ride as if in the dry. The only issue has been the life compared to the Dunlops that were on the bike previously and the price for two tires. Difficult to justify the extra when other brands last longer unless I am always riding in the rain when they are paramount for safety. If you ride at weekends only then these are great, but commuting kills them fast even though I use a very twisty route every day with less than 10% of dual carriage way.
