The 200/50ZR-17 is a responsive tire at sustained top speed. I have shopped around to see what else I can get in a 200/50-17 / 120/70-17 match and found out there are not very many choose from. I picked the Q2 because I have run the 207 and 208 and liked them both. A new set of Q2's will go way past 170moh and remain rock steady. I mount and balance my own tires on all my bikes and the Q2 is a solid radial. I am on my second set, they do cook-out quite fast. Stretching it I get 5-6k a set. Darn good in the rain.
