I had them on my 1970 CB750 and except for having to use tubes I loved them.

They look pretty good, but do they really grip? Like, when compared to the S22 or Pilot Road 5?

Don't know but would not expect them to be the hot ticket for track days.

If I remember they’re just H rated, at least they were in the 70s when I ran them.  A mechanic friend ran them at the track on his 750s and Kawasaki two stroke triples.  They were known for their cornering.  Of course, they also had simple (flexing’) spoke wheels that required a tube type tire.  Nowadays?  There are probably much better tires but not all of the ‘better’ tires can be found in the old 18 and 19” rim sizes.

I had TT100's on my Laverda SF750, my H1E and a CB750 and I thought they were the best at the time, certainly made the H1 a little better behaved around the bends. Not sure about the modern incarnation though, would be interesting to see how they go on a modern bike.
