This tire is the perfect balance of high-performance materials and water-shedding tread. It is impressive on dry pavement and amazing on wet. The Tri-Compound Extrusion (TE) and Advanced Variable Belt Density (A-VBD) construction combines a durable center for stability and longevity with softer edges for excellent grip at high lean angles. The Storm 2 Ultra provides consistent handling and stability for the life of the tire, fast warm-up times, and superior grip. The tread gives optimal water dispersal and resistance to uneven wear to improve braking. Please Note: Tire with V speed rating has reinforced construction. Includes Avon’s road hazard warranty. W-Rated, Tubeless.

Comments about Avon AV56 ST Storm 2 Ultra Sport Touring Radial Motorcycle Tire:
I bought the front tire of this pair about a month ago and recently purchased and installed the rear as well. Only thing I can say is WOW....very noticeable difference in handling and overall ride comfort! Holds corners very well with minimal fatigue...Outstanding wet weather handling even in downpours! The water Channels on the rear tire are just over 1/4 in. deep and disperse rain easily! If you do a lot of riding and get caught in foul weather like I do,Then you will be very pleased with these tires.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

You will not regret getting this Tire !!
This is my 3rd Storm II Ultra on the rear of my 2007 Kawasaki Z1000. This tire usually lasts me 12,000 to 14,000 miles before the center is gone. I ride a lot of highway miles, around 18-22,000 a year. I have had this bike since May of 2010 and have put over 30,000 miles on it. The Front tire in this line has some scalloping issues though but still lasts fairly good. My first one lasted around 18,000 miles but the last one started showing premature wear at 9,000 miles. Still, these tires can't be beat for mileage and handling. They hold the corners good and are very tacky once warmed up. The tread is VERY DEEP !! Close to 3/8 in. and the pattern is very versatile for different riding styles. You will not be disappointed in this purchase !
These tires are great on dry or wet pavement. Awesome when leaning as far as I can in a corner. Great mileage (11,000 miles on my last set). Pricey, but you get what you pay for.Throw a set on and head for The Dragon!

A great tire for my Buell Ulysses. I have lost track of exactly how many miles I have put on this tire, but I think it is in excess of 7K.
