These grips are nice and tacky. Last a while just like the Pro Taper Moto grips. They have hard ends which help when your bike falls down and keeps your handle bars in good shape if they are carbon.
I really like the new grips. Slightly thicker than the stock grips that were on the bike. It is hard to tell from the image, but these have bar ends, which is much better than the ones that are covered completely.
