Radial, and after 8000kms still feeling like new, not following road grooves (Dunlops were notorius for that), very little wear (nice if you scoring lots of miles), good on wet roads, only little pricier- around 20% in our climates:grin2:

Wow, it kept slipping my mind to check the forum.

Kenny, It's a Mussari Slip on with the baffle recently reinstalled due to California's Highway Patrol crack down on how loud motorcycle exhausts are.

Yeah, much like Rupert said, they don't follow road grooves, and they feel way better / faster than the Dunlops. I don't aggressively turn into corners, but the wheels practically do the work for you. The Dunlops IMO had a bigger "footprint" on the road, and didn't allow much movement in cornering. While, I enjoy these, I feel like I may go too far into a corner and either scrape my footpeg, or set the bike down. But, since Its been a year or two since "restarting" to ride, I prefer these tires over anything I've ever used before, especially on this bike.

All in All, Amazing Tires, I will continue to use these tires until I either sell/trade in the bike, or if I find a better alternative. I highly recommend these tires, if you're looking for a great (yet expensive-ish) tires. I paid ~300 for the tires, $120 for install and $6.50 for California's tire/hazardous fee. Out the door it was $450. Well worth the price.

10/10
