WOW!!! Great photos of H2 assembly line.

The tires do look like a match.


Nice Find.

All i can say the R10 190/55/17 tire i hade back in 2011 on my S1000RR that tire it is super soft as **** and grips like a biatch but make sure you have a big change of $$$$$ to change that tire every 900 miles Run. Now i see that they change the compound with new R10 200/55/17 sweet.

Just so all of you members know, the knew r10 for the h2, it is non-directional tire, that means you can flip the tire any side you want, and balance it with no problems.

Bandit.... The tires on the H2 are the same tires on the R1M

Bridgestone r10's with 200 rear size Track rated tires.

Yamaha switched from Dunlop Qualifiers, first time.

So it seems we are all in agreement then that these tires are really good. No one is disappointed and planning to switch them as soon as they get their hands on the bike?

that could be a "hard" R10. The fronts will be a medium compound as that is all Bridgestone had available for track DOT's as of the end of October. Also the rear will be a new tire as well, since as of the end of Oct. they didn't list a 200 series tire in the R10 line up. Another thing I find interesting is that Kawi recommends that you only run the VO-1's and not the newer VO-2's for the H2R's.... In the VO-2 tires, Bridgestone is only bringing out a 195 and a 200 series rear tires and recommending that a 600cc bike run a 195 tire on the rear and that all liter bikes bump up to a 200 series rear tire.....

I don't see me using them after break-in. I really only trust Pirelli with my life generally.
