    This is my second rear of S20’s on my Ninja 1000 and man they are awesome! I got just over 6,800 miles on the rear and the front is subdue excellent, up to 7,000 miles now on the front tire. I have to admit I was never a fan of the BT23 and they were the stock tire on both bikes I bought. The difference between the BT23’s and S20’s is night and day! The S20’s heat up quick, stick way, way surpass nearly the corners and manage to displace water really well. For comparison I’ve also used Bridgestone 2CT and diablo corsa rosso, both are also awesome tires but (for me a least) I only averaged about 3,000 miles out of the rear tires and the Diablo’s took longer to heat up and lost a lot of their stickiness once they neared the end of their tread life; as for the 2CT’s due to their softness they puncture really straightforwardly, the smallest of objects can straightforwardly penetrate thus causing a flat. I know a lot of riders that have used and subdue use the 2CT and all had/have the same issue with the 2CT’s.
    So the benefits over the other three tires (disregarding price)
    1. Quick warm up
    2. Exceptional cornering
    3. Surpass water displacement
    4. Longer tread life

    I’ve yet to test these tires on the track but based on my riding style (really aggressive) I’d postulate they’d do damn excellent.

    Ride Safe!

    I have used these tires on my 94 cbr900 fireblade for commuting and track days and have to confirm with the first commentor that these tires go exceptionally.
