Those are all sport bike tires. I wouldn't use any of them on an FJR unless you like buying tires every 1500 miles.

Know your target audience.

Softer tires have their uses too. When I was planning a long weekend in West-by-God-Virginnie I started looking for new tires. As the time got closer the forecast got wetter so I bought a set of nice and soft Shinkos. Stuck like glue even when dragging pegs on wet roads. Granted, I got only 3000 miles out of them but for less than $100 each installed at my local honda dealer it was definitely worth it.

This is also one of those threads where it's perfectly ok to move along without posting anything. Just sayin'.

I could not get on with Pirelli tyres. Dunlop Roadsmart 3 are, in my opinion, the best tyres for the fjr and it goes along as if on rails.
12000 miles, so both wear out together and they do not get punctures as often.

Angels are considered a sport touring tire. The ones above are pure sport.

The Diablo Rosso IV's are not "pure sport" but in between sport touring and sport... have one on the back of the VFR, seems pretty darn good, but yes a bit softer than the Angel GT's....

They must work nice on a VFR but probably squirm a bit on an FJR.

No squirmy...... the sport tires might be. I'd say a PR4 rear will squirm more. If you put a Diablo Rosso 4 on an FJR, I'd say you'd like the grip but get less mileage than the Angels.

I wonder why they didn't mention the Pirelli Angels, maybe an oversight.
Yeah, thanks for pointing that out!
