I got Power Pures on my scoot - got more grip then Dunlop Roadsmarts I had
on my Kawasaki. I heard a rumor that they made a new version of them
(the power pures), something to do with different with central grooves on the
tires that make the bike "catch" imperfection on the road and steer you
around a bit.

I've noticed my scoot does that, but it's not a big issue.

The grip is amazing, and there's no noticeable wear yet after about
4k miles (13" rear, 14" front, 30hp scoot, 400lbs dry).

They need a bit of warm up though before they work - I didn't expect
to be able to powerslide with them, but around town, on poor pavement
(and thanks in part to the performance CVT), I still can.

Tmax riders here are the most aggressive usually and they tend to prefer
GPR100 tires, and on smaller scoots the most aggressive riders mostly
use Diablo scooter tries.

I always liked Michelin tires on scoots (City Grips are fine too) so I'm stickin
with these.
