well of course itīs subjective. What I was mainly relating to is this kind of test we can hardly perform at home, so some credit must be given me thinks.
One way or the other any of those tyres are certainly far far superior than the ones I used to use on my young age rides, meaning 25 years ago. Probably that technology superiority is the reason why some choose a brand/model over another and puts them all not so far apart in choice.
Just like the bikes! for every unconditional happy versys owner you will find one happy v-strom, f650gs, etc etc happy owner on some other forum!
Anyway my choice fall on versys. Donīt ask me why as I am still waiting for it (1 week plus!), but it was a close call between the versys and the Z750. If I had enough budget I would have gone for the Triumph street triple R.
Before riding, on a pure rhetorical sensitive side of things my choice went to versys because of:
50% - price
10% - feedback I get here
10% - adaptability to type of day to day use and local track/city conditions
10% - apparent running costs and availability of 5 dealers in the area
10% - unlike honda hornet there are not many around, I like some exclusiveness
10% - it grew on me, some other feeling / magic dust I canīt explain!
Gustavo where did you see posts related to this, on the uk forum?
