A test report for V11 tyres


Recommended Posts

Always a tricky topic but I wanted to share this interesting test report from Utac Ceram. A rather top end automotive technical service and independent/inpartial under ISO 17025 accreditation (I am not sure if this test was done under the accreditation).

Very interesting. It would've been nice to see the normal msrp in the comparison as well.

I noted that the number of timed laps was not consistent between all brands; a true blind test should eliminate all possibilities of partiality.

It would be nice to see a similar test on a bike not equipped with ABS,like all of mine are.

It was reassuring to read that the Conti RA3 didn't activate the ABS at all on the wet braking test. I interpret that as a higher degree of traction. fwiw idk

I can't recall if I've ever ridden on a set of Bridgestones. I "think" I may have removed a set from my V11 that still looked brand new, but the date code was 17 yrs old.

MT, tks very much for posting that link & report, good food for thought.

I've been extolling the virtues of Contis for some time now. I have Road Attacks on the Skorpion in California, and they are awesome..:thumbsup:

Tires will always be :drink:, storys,, new kwakker H2 in 72 with bridgestones, WHAT, think I did 70km before swapping to TT 100. Felt like 80% plastic, terrible. Used quite a few set of Conti Sport attack on a 10 K1300S, very good in dry with quite good km's. After  some set of Pirelly Angel GT on my V11, which I think is a great tire, but  when worn out my Dunlop Sport S handles much better when theyre goone. Plenty good tires today when new, but when worn, a prefer the type that behave all the way. So Dunlops for my V11's for now. 

Cheers Tom.
