Didn't come up with anything on that one in any searches.

Maybe I should re-phrase that a little: is the Pilot Power 2CT considered the same as the Pilot Road 2? *scratch

No. PP2CT is meant for sportier bikes and has a softer compound. PR2 is more for touring bikes.

OK Thanks. My sis has a K12S and asked about the PP2CT but I haven't seen it. Then I saw someone mention the Pilot Road 2 but I didn't see it at the tire place I used to buy my tires, just plain old Pilot roads. Is the Pilot Road 2 brand new? I'm lost. It's been too long.

Yes, it's on the market for several weeks now. It also is a 2 compound technology tyre. The GT will need the PR2 up front and the PR2B at the back. I have a set on order. Will probably be mounted next week or the week after that (when I think my BT020's are really toast).

Grtz,

Hi Wings
