Yes I read this article right before buying my winter tires for my two bikes. As they didn't factor in wet riding (they were down in LA or Las Vegas or somewhere warm), I decided that the new Rosso II's were worth a try. They claim to have much higher silica content which is good for wet, but the silica in these tires allegedly doesn't separate at high heat making them good in warm weather too. I put these on my Speed Triple R and have really liked how they have worked on the wet twisties up in the santa cruz mountains these past few weeks.
so +1 on the Rosso II from me (for wet twisties).

Your milage and experience may vary,
Did you get your "greater than" signs correctly? Are you really saying the Q2 is the best track tire...better than the power ones...and that it is the worst choice for a street tire? From your earlier posts, I would have thought you'd have the exact opposite opinion from what I read here.
I just put the Q2's on my S1K for the winter months, expecting that it'll have to see some track time next spring as well before I put DOT tires back on her. Just breaking these in so I don't have an opinion on them yet...
