this tire is a multi-compound tire? Comparable to the michelin PP2ct?

Yes, it is a multi-compound tire. 3 compound front, 5 compound rear.

yup, great deal... I got 2 sets on reserve
also picked up a new suit... Teknic Speedstar for $400! MSRP on this sucker is $1500! Be warned, it runs VERY small. I picked up a size 40 in the Teknic and it's EXTREMELY snug compared to my A/S RC-1 40 and still ran smaller than my A/S Vector 38

Its actually Dual Compound front & Triple Compound rear.



IMO a better tire than the Pilot 2ct. You can see in that pic how much bigger the compound patches are compared to the Pilot 2CT.

From Bridgestone's site...

- Front tire features dual compound (3LC) to provide grip in all riding modes. The center compound offers linear handling while the shoulder compound secures high grip and solid contact feeling

- Rear tire features a new triple compound (5LC) The center compound offers good stability, the shoulder compound transfers power to the road with strong traction while the edge compound offers strong side grip and solid contact feeling at extreme lean angles

That's a great deal. Those tires are excellent. I put them on my ZX-6R two months ago and have ridden 3000 kms (1800 miles) on them. Great tires for the street. They corner very well. Much better than the stockers 015.

If you have one of their stores close by, they will mount them...

too bad there's no deals on ST tires.

I'm not sure what you mean but both tires in that picture above (the orange tires) are BT-016's
No I mean the deal they are running? In the details of the listing it sounds like there are two different model tires for the front and rear.

Good deal on these tires but I'm going to hold off and get a set of Dunlop D220's for longer lasting mileage. I had the D220's on my CBR600RR and loved them, they hooked up a ton better than the stock Dunlops and bridgstones in my opinion.
