As recommended by Ricky Gadson, I installed the Conti Sport Attack2 tires to use them on my bike for drag racing and also for street use, yes they are that sticky
The fishtailing my bike suffered before on the street, when applying full throttle in 1st & 2nd gear on the previous tire (Michelin Power Pure) is gone. This is the best tire i installed on my S1000RR until now, i tried the Conti Sport Attack1, Michelin Power Pure, Pirelli Diablo Corsa Rossa, but they don't even come close to this tire.

My 2012 came with conti sport attack 2. I love these. Anwsome feedback, I have rode up and down the autobahn, hockheimring, nurburgring, and the nurburg gp track. I'm ready well have to replace rear tyre. Of course I will be getting another conti sport attack 2.
