No way you get that mileage on those tires riding the bike proper on track or hitting the mountains. I got 972 miles out of my V3's on my 18' R1 riding Deals Gap roads and they were done. There's a reason Pirelli just dropped the price on these lower than the V2's. Buying the V2's or a race tire would provide better performance for the dollar for your application.

totally agree with this! 4000 miles out of a rear tyre on the v4 only possible if you are pushing it yourself with the engine off!
I'm getting 500-600 miles and they are toast! I did 3 sessions at Cadwell one evening and 2 rides on the road (400 miles) and they had given there best and where sliding around big time! I did a few more runs as I like to use my tyre until it's practically showing cord!
