They came stock on my 09 Speed Triple. Good sticky tires but just 2-3 days of highway riding and you end up with a flat spot on the rear tire, the center is way too soft for whats really needed. The front tire lasted a good 12000km+ but I never got more then 5000km out of the rear tires and often had a flat spot after just 2500km. After going through 2 Metz M3's I changed them for Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and what a difference. They stick as much on the dry, stick more in the rain and I can almost get twice the milleage out of them and barely any flat spot and plenty of highway riding. Might try the new Sportec M5 (with 3 different compounds and harder center should make them last longer). But would not recommend the Sportec M3 unless you spend more then 80% of your time riding on the side of the tire.
