these tires were used on a 1995 triumph speed triple. front 120/70-17, rear 180/55-17 at 34 psi. this is a heavier moderately powered (97hp) bike used for aggressive sport-touring and commuting. have 4100 miles on them and the rear is almost done for, average wear. paid $177 us delivered, as cheap as it gets= excellent price. bike handles great. stable at all angles, no weave, wobble,etc at any speeds up to 125mph(as fast as ive pushed them) good feedback. have read that these tires work good on these type (heavy,moderate power)of bikes, very happy with them will buy again. if your bike is similar consider them. if you race, or have a high horsepower bike there are better tires. used on the proper application they are a 5 star tire. used on anything else they will probably rate less.
These new ContiForce tyres have a nice profile and warm up quite fast, tyre wear seems OK at the moment and they handle OK except that they are a little 'skittish' over white lines in the wet and since fitting them the bike has a very slight weave at _very_ high speeds, nothing dangerous but still noticeable. The major factor in trying these tyres in the first place (No not because my brother works for Continental!) is the price, at around £130 for a complete set, they cost about the same price as a single Bridgestone or Dunlop rear! And so represents great value for money.
