Both are GENERAL ALTIMAX HP 195/65-15 as is mine and many many others, this is the most used tire for our bike because it fits with no problems and last like iron. There is now an RT version which is asymmetric tread. Like most riders, if the tire is still on the bike they love it. The tire is just a superior ride and handles better than the MC tire.
CT 65-80 Dollars, MCT 180 dollars, cost the same to mount both.
So far I have skipped 2 new tire mounts and looking forward to skipping many more.
There are other tire's used that have been proven to have the characteristics we need in a rear tire. Flexible sidewall being the most important.
