    Mate who is a dispatch rider loves them. A lot better than the 4s last longer too. Cant give mileage at mo.

    Been using them for a few months now and I’m at 6k miles, so far they’ve been great. Even did two track days on them and seem to work very well when needed!

    I have them on my Hornet - about 3000 miles in. Interestingly you can see where the different types of rubber meet, no ridge, just an obvious change of rubber. Grip wise, I'm in Cornwall and it can get a bit 'slimy' here on the roads in the winter, but my tires have been excellent so far with no slip outs at all. I will definitely have another set fitted the VFR when her Road 3's are done.
