I wonder if the stock tyre on thr CBR is same worldwide. Is it the same as shown in the pic below?


I was wondering if it is possible to do some good cornering with these stock tyres itself. Do they provide enough grip so as we can bend enough to touch our knee down? And is it slippery on wet roads? Ive read many people complaining about the grip of the tyres, hence I dont have enough confidence while making a turn and fail to try to bend the bike and do some good cornering on turns.

Done lots of twisties on stock and pushed them pretty good at that. Some of the tighter turns are 65mph+ feel bleh, but the suspension feels worse than the tire at that point. I have hit sand and needles from a tree, felt the back end go out and regain traction pretty quickly. They are awesome all round tires. I got a nail in the back so Im replacing them with pirelli tires, eager to see the difference.

Countries that get the Indian model get Continental tyres.

Countries that get the Thai model get IRC tyres.


The pic above with the race bikes is from the Thai Moto3 series. They have to use the stock tyres as per the rules.


IMO the IRC tyres are okay, but NOTHING compared to a proper pair like my Pirelli Sport Demons.

Don't think they cost much more than the stock ones either.

They definitely come recommended.
