new improved run flat tires

I remember reading about the next generation of new, improved (softer riding, better handling) generation of RFT's that was supposed to be coming out.

Does anyone know if they are on the market yet? If yes, what are the models/brands, etc?

I put on Michellin PS2 ZP (255r, 225f) a month ago and they are amazing. Night and day difference compared to Bridgestones RFT. They are also wider. The ride feels like a regular stiff sport tire while grip and comfort is 200% better. It is expensive but...worth every $. Hope this helps.
