Best tyres

The rubber is getting low and will need replacing, its worn in a way that i think the previous owner liked going round round-a-bouts a lot.

At present it has 120/70 and 190/55 s20 Battleax. Happy with these but the new suggestion from Bridgestone (UK) is the 120/70 s21 and 200/50 s20 Battleax sounds good. Another idea this time from Bridgestone worldwide was the new s22 Battleax.

Ive not heard any reports on the s22 other than loads of grip but they might not last.

So what is the general opinion on tyres for the zx12.

Been running Pirelli Diablo Corsa III, great tires and I really like them. Heat up fast, more grip than Ill probably ever be able to use, work well in the wet...
Only "issue" is that the rear tire is done after about 4000-4500Km spirited riding.
Front 35.5-36 Psi and rear 37-37.5 Psi.

Im gonna try out the Bridgestone S22 come season 2020
