Given 65% while driving a Honda CB400SF (160/60 R17 W) on mostly town for 1,000 easy going miles
I live in Singapore, a country with a tropical climate and high humidity, and lots of torrential rains. It is a very small island-like country that mostly communes about 30km at a stretch and rarely above 40km in one go. My bike only weighs about 200+kg. Climate usually above 30-degree Celcius all year round. My average speed in the expressways usually around 80km/h to 100km/h. I would say this is an excellent dry grip tyre and really feel comfortable. The sense of confidence to ride this in dry conditions is really high. Tyre seems to warm up fast in the dry weather, especially when riding in the mid-afternoon under the scorching equator sun, it feels really sticky. However, once the rain starts pouring, there is a drastic change in traction when compared to riding in dry conditions. The tyre feels so slippery, and traction is very bad, at least, in my opinion, not acceptable. In my opinion, I would rather use Pilot Power 1 to be the better one-tyre-do-all dry/wet as my choice of tyre. I would not recommend this tyre at all for use in Singapore. It is not a safe tyre to use. Only works in the dry weather.

Went through 2 sets of Q3+'s before going to these 2CT's. While these are not as "high performance" as the Q3+, they match my skill set nicely. The Q3+'s were great but more tire than I can effectively utilize or need. The 2CT's are a great price, have typical wear longevity, and performed well at my most recent track day where it got into the mid-90's for most of the day. They now have about 2,500 miles on them and I estimate another couple thou +/- another track day before needing to be replaced. Two areas where I do feel they are the equal to, or slightly better than, the Q3+'s are: 1) Road feel and 2) Initial turn-in. Will be buying again!

Amazing wet grip, but dry grip not amazing, not bad on the track. But nothing on Supercorsas or Pilot Power 3's

This tyre has no grip when theyre cold, but they heat up so fast, and than they have so much grip! I like that grip, but i would like more they would warm up more slowely, so you can have more confidence when its gonna spin or when its gonna wheelie.
Handles great in curves.
