I figured as much. I was pretty sure there was no point in trying the PPs since the PRs are so nice (currently have PR2s on my versys and PR4s on my cbr1krr).

How does longevity compare between the 2? I would pick pilot road every time as traction is good and they last well but I haven't tried the pilot powers so I don't know how well they last.

Nice vid. I don't think there's anything faster on a fairly tight road than a supermoto. Sportbikes are faster on sweepers but anything tighter the supermotos should own.
