Been on the new Hoops that my dealer installed about a month ago and I must say there is quite a difference in ride and handling. I'm not sure if the old IRCs were just worn out but the bike is so much better behaved.

Almost always a new set of tires will make a big difference in ride and handling. After all you usually have been riding wore out set when you put on a new set.

I've just replaced my original Hoops with a set Pirelli Diablo and the ride feels great.

Like Roger I think its more to do with them being new, but still it feels great which gives confidence Smile

New tyres will always 'feel' better no matter what the manufacturer.

I always dread when they fall off, the odd side slip, the twitch when moving over a white line of metal cover on the road.
