Outstanding tire
Tried my first set of bt016 hypersports 6 years ago and I've been hooked. I ride a custom long and low cbr900rr and these tires even improved the handling of that set up. Hooks really well when I bang through the gear box with the airshifter. Very pleased.

GREAT SUPER STICKY TIRE
If it wasn't for the nail that I picked up in my stock tire I wouldn't be purchasing this one but .... this tire ROCKS!!! It'll handle corners in the rain and allow you to slide through the corners when its hot. Excellent tire, you can't go wrong.

Great Tire - Bridgestone BT-016 PRO
I've been using these tires for several years on my 2008 Hayabusa and like them very much. Last year I watched a YouTube comparison of top of the line sport tires that included the BT-016. The tires performed admirably in this specialized group. To my pleasure, after watching the review, my cornering improved to the point where chicken stripes have vanished and squaring off is a thing of the past. As I say, great tires!!!

What is the "real" difference between the Bridgestone BT-016 rear tires in sizes 190/50-17 6/32 versus 7/32?
A shopper on Aug 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The 7/32 tire is the "stock" version suitable for most everyone. The 6/32 tire is a "bespoke" version manufactured specifically for Kawasaki's superbike.
