Continental ContiMotion tire
Thought I would provide my 2 cents worth on a short review of the ContiMotion front and rear tires for the "V".
The tires replaced my 2nd set after stock which were the Shinko 009 Ravens. I liked the Shinkos, but found them hard to find after getting just over 12,000 front and approximately 8,000 on the rear when I collected 3 nails in the rear tire (in then out through sidewall) while going thru a construction zone on K10 (Kansas).
Was in desperate need for a rear and found one in stock at Dell's Powersports in my hometown of Blue Springs for $110.00 OTD (could do better on web tho). I noted the tire had a bare/ bald section in the center and was hesitant during the first rain, but handled equal or better than the Shinkos. Spooned on the front shortly after (less than $80.00 on Amazon) and I am impressed with the smooth ride these tires provide and how they hold a line in corners. I have not noticed any negatives now pushing 3,000 on them and wanted to provide a short review if any fellow Versys owners were looking at a tire on a budget. Will follow up with a longevity review when tires wear.
