Be interested to hear how you get on with them.

I have the Pilot 2CT on my 910R, I find them very good both in dry and wet weather riding. I have also done a couple of track days with them on and found them very stable with plenty of feedback.

Grem - interesting that you want to put these on at the beginning of winter?

Would power ONE offer the best grip in wet conditions? Or do you need though grooves on a road tyre for wet conditions?

I've been a big fan of the 2CT tyres and would love to know how the Power One would be like.
At the moment I am eyeing a set of Racetec Interact in a month time.

Yes.. was talking about this with some guys yesterday.. Ive got supercorsas on at the mo, and they are nice and sticky... but no good for that caught in the rain moment... the pures are a good price, only $30 a set more than 2CTs here in NZ...

You going to give these a go?

Any thoughts or i should go for the 180 or 190 size :stickpoke
Easy on the Brutale: 190/55 - the manual says 190/50 or 190/55, but the 55 profile tyre is def much better for turn-in. Plus it looks mean as on the back of the Brute.

My BMW is on Racetec interacts, very neutral tyre, other BMW owners have swapped to power pure and they say they are not as good as the interacts, I have been quoted over £300 for a set of Racetec interacts, but they are very good

Which Interact are on the BMW? K0 or K1 or K2 or K3?

I'm planning to get K1 fronts and K2 rears Interact.

no way!!! They are dry condition tires and they shed water as good as a tire with 5% tread grooves can.

I haven't been caught in the rain yet, but I also make sure to not get caught in the rain with these on.

I will say that the Power One tires offer the best feel and grip on a tire that I've ever put on my bike. Previous tires were: Super corse dragons, 2ct's, dunflops (for a very small amount of time before I took them off)

more grooves help. have a look at a race rain tire.

wouldn't want to be in the rain with power one.
