I'm excited we're getting something other than the D209 in 160. If the 211 in a 160 is as good as in the 190 and 200, I'm pumped. My friends on the bigger bikes love those things, even the American version.

Tire technology gets better, so why is their newest tire boasting about a lap time that was being done on tires 6 years ago......thats all hes saying.

Well, I figured as much, but was also wondering what tires are providing the best laptimes? These are difficult figures to track down, as well as being a topic of debate (I.e which tire is "best").

That all depends on track, temperature, rider preference, and suspension set up.

The ones you like and are most comfortable with :)
I did 2:06.0 on Michelin PR5 if anybody remembers those. It was hardest one you could get in dot.
btw. it is not tire but rider who does lap times, Brian will go fast on any of them :).
