Conti Motion tyres

Just had these fitted to my K's wheels, got to pick them up on the way home tonight.

Cannot believe the bargain price

I was a bit dissappointed when I checked the mileage I'd gotten from their predecessors the Metzeler Z8 Interacts.

I'd only gotten 3500 miles from them, and being honest the front was almost as goosed as the rear. I guess baiting ZX10R's on the north Wales roads has its price

Re: Conti Motion tyres

I have had them on my GT since spring, about 6k now. They have been working for me quite well. Only little thing I find is they are very sensitive to pressure I can tell when they are off by 3 psi and at around 30 mph I "think" I feel a small vibration. But I have had them up to... lets just say fast and no issues.

They are cheaper then the Dunlops and better than the 020's so I will buy them again.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Cool Re: Conti Motion tyres

Been running Conti Motions on my K1300GT for over a year now, getting 10,000+ on a set
Price is right
