120/70 12 Tyre Review Highlights

Driving on mostly town for 300 average miles
Had these fitted to my GTS300 a few weeks back, replacing the usual (and OEM) Michelin City Grips. Two things are instantly obvious, compared to the already good City Grips: 1) these are way more confident leant over, presumably because of the shape, which is much more like a "proper" motorcycle tyre, and what must be more sticky rubber at the edges; 2) they feel stiffer (at the same pressure) so float over bumps better, rather than getting bogged down on them. Both dry and wet grip are excellent (once the initial sheen has worn off!). I live in London so don't often push too hard but while I've definitely almost lost the front on the City Grips once or twice over the years these feel rock solid. They also improve the feel of the bike even riding in a straight line. All in all, a very good upgrade for very little extra money...
