The continental Contiprocontact is a touring tire, as is the Bridestone Turanza Serenity Plus. These are designed for a smooth ride.
How ever the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 is a performance tire and one of the best tires you can get for the K900.
I have the Continental Extreme Contact DWS06's on my K900. They are rated almost like the Michelins and I got them for free, before KIA started replacing tires with only the same tires.
They are really nice on the highway and center steering is much better than stock tires. Only short fall seems to be they have nylon
side walls so when setting over night develop flat spots. Feel the flat spots when first starting out. After a mile they are real smooth, no vibration like OEM.
If I was buying tires myself, would have gotten the Michelins for performance tires They are said to be the standard to compare to ( but I'm happy with the continental Extreme Contact DWS06's) Not sure how the Michelins are for flat spots at startup. If you want touring tires go for the Bridgestones
My car came with the Continental Contiprocontact and the rise feels great.
