The rumormill is saying they are discontinuing the pures.

Ive always just gotten the original powers and never had a problem with them. I dont ride very aggressively on the street and they've had more than enough stick.

I love the pures but they run out way faster than the 2ct's so unless you are doing a lot of track days don't get them. I have 2ct's on now and I can tell the difference from my pures but they are still fine for an novice to intermediate pace. I also was told by my local Honda dealership that they are being discontinued, the cup street is what is comparable.

Pures= discontinued.
Great tire though if you can still get them. I run the power one's now. I love them and I ride them on the street.
One's may not last as long though but I haven't used them up yet.
All are 2ct's

The cup tires are not gonna do it for me. Where are the rain grooves? If you have those on a bike & get caught in the rain, it ain't gonna be pretty. Hopefully a supplier will still have some Pures next spring.

Thanks genius!

Yeah I would be worried about the rain as well with the cup tires! What are they thinking?
