Hi folks, we all have been upset at the cost of the Excedra rear tire cost at over $300 bucks a pop! Well, I have some good news on a few fronts.
First, I just had an Excedra Max 200/60VR16 put on. Yes, it’s slightly taller (less than 1/2” radius) than the 55 but has no problem fitting in the wheel well.
Secondly, you’ll notice the “V” rating which is for 149mph. That’s good because the stock is only rated to 134mph despite the fact the bike can go higher. That’s now no longer an issue. It also has a 79 load rating, so it’s rated at 963lbs, about 150lbs higher than stock. A consideration for those who tow.
Third, it seems the actual speedometer is now matching the speed listed over ground in the GPS.
Lastly the price... can find it online for under $185! That’s right, better performance and cheaper! I was able to get my dealership to match the online price. Total installed was $287.00
Just wanted to put this out there for those who might need a tire soon. I got 15k miles out of mine.
Here’s the info:
