Are you not mentally able to make an intelligent decision on your own? Any statement you want to hear can be bought and paid for with all the graft and selling out that goes on today. It all boils down to money. Follow the money. The motorcycle manufacturers are in bed with the tire guys to sell us all inferior product at inflated prices that are designed to wear out prematurely and provide us the lowest form of protection they think they can get away with.
So what if one of their tires blows out on you in the middle of a nasty turn and you go down and kill yourself and possibly others as well. They can afford a few lawsuits. Did you learn NOTHING from the Ford Pinto? When the accountants convinced Ford that the price of fixing the problem was higher than the potential lawsuits over the faulty design, so they did NOT fix it. Its all about the money.
The CT is a safer tire, period. The cost has nothing to do with why most (yes of course there are some that only seethe savings) of us run the CTs, especially those of us running the Run Flat designs.
