    Pirelli Angel GT

    I used them on my 1050, averaged around 20k km per set , They worked exceptionally well for me 1 up or 2 up, in the dry & wet, on long roads and mountains and even on the days we went to the track.

    Another popular tyre for the 1050 is the Michelin Street Pilot.

    How does the Angel ST compare to the GT?

    from what I understand, the GT is the evolution of the ST. The GT is a dual compound tyre so the centre and side have differnt compounds to make the centre more hard wearing and the sides more grippy, so combined the give you mileage and performance. the GT stands for Grand Tourismo, it is specifically designed for sport tourers.
