yea I ended up with the 190/55 Diablo 3. Tires seem a bit sluggish flicking back and forth compared to the 180/60. Maybe its the tire profile. Just my .2
I noticed the same with the 190/55, but it was much better than the 180/55 Q3 tried.

A tire with 4000 miles on it that's been worn down may have a slightly different shape than factory. Unless we ride equally through the angles all the time. : ) Just remember ... most riders can't feel the difference between two tires in the same class. What a rider CAN feel, is the difference between a new tire and an old tire.

190/55 > 180/55

After the 190/55's run out I'll try the 180/60 Pirelli's again. : )

Changed to The Rosso II front and back 180/60, and happy with them. Tested them at The Snake, hwy421 in Tenesse, and the were great!!!

The 190/55 is a slightly shorter profile than the 180/60. 104.5mm as opposed to 108mm. I don't think 3.5mm would make a massive difference, but I could be wrong.

I've tried a lot of different sizes on both the 899 and 959, I feel the difference initially and then adapt really quickly. Rule of thumb is if it's big it will steer a little slower than a narrower one, but most people get that.
