An Avon representative suggested that I might want to try the Avon Viper Sport tires on my Ducati ST. I’m running them now and I love these tires!!! They might not last as long as the Azaro’s or the Storm-ST’s, but I do love the way they handle. Although I do love my Viper’s and think I have found perfection, I will still try the new Storm’s because every new set of Avon’s impresses me with the ’state of the art’ technology that they seem to keep coming up with.
Been using AVON’s since the 70s, had a set on my RD350. Ive been racing their tires now for 15 yrs, had a few podium finishes, and other great mentionables, can understand the looks and comments from fellow racers who wonder why I ride so well with these tires, from my experience, its about a good setup and knowing how to ride your race bike. As that race rubber wears down, rebalance that tire, lower that pressure, my typical setup is 28 front, 27-29 rear.
I bought an ‘99 Hayabusa which had Avons on it. I’ve been riding for 24 years and always been a Metzeler man but that has changed. I’m absolutely astounded at how good your tyres are. 100 grip from the moment I pull off my drive, the best tyre bar none in wet conditions, even in sleet at -4C they give me 100 confidence and the only tyre I have ever used that lets me get my pegs down in the wet. They take all the ‘Busa can give yet are not squared off or past it with 5000 Miles on them. Totally stable under emergency braking, perfect cornering and spot on stability! I now tell all my Bridgestone/Pirelli mates to ditch these ’superior’ tyres and use yours instead; I am now an Avon man for life.
Hopefully they can help you find the right item and make the best buying decision.

Pros: Great price
Cons: Not a main stream name anymore
I am a CCS racer that has a low budget and Need tires that work well and won't break the bank. AVON's are great tires with fast warm up and good feel on high speed corners. I would defiantly recommend them to a fellow racer
