Prices have gone up, and most members mention Penang pay higher price. Maybe not much dealers stock this tyre there??


that's what i am trying to figure out. smile.gif

I read that Beng San in Penang carries this tyre. Not sure if there are other shops in Penang.

cheers.

Actually V2 blackbird and V8RS shares the same pattern. Wonder why they are different model??

The track pattern of the Blackbird V2 are same as V8, but i saw Blackbird V2 didn't indicated any spec such like Temparature AA and traction A as V8 do.
I just used these blackbird V2 about 2 weeks,it really grip in dry. Haven't try it in wet condition.
My last tyre GY F1, those are the best tyre i had used before. It grip in dry and wet condition. Even cornering, never doubt in the fast corner.
But it don't have the size of 14" rim any more smile_disapprove.gif . Pirrelli Dragon also as good as F1.
Thinking upgrade my rim to 15" smile_tongue.gif
