Re: BT-16's or Q2's and why?
If you're going to be doing a track day soon then definitely go with the Q2, they will give you phenomenal grip. I run STT advanced and NESBA I and they're excellent tires. The S20s are great as well though, and are cheaper than Q2's, 220 on Jakewilson.com shipped. I ran the BT016 old model on my cbr1000rr for 6 months and loved them, and my buddy with the new set on his 1000rr loves them as well, and says they're better than the old model. IMO, from best to least best, I would rate it at Q2, S20, BT016.
However, the S20 and Q2 are very close in quality, but for lean angle grip and speed on the track, you can't go wrong with the Q2's. The technology comes from the GP-A line.
