I went from super corsa to rosso 3
Almost as much grip but way better than the original for long distance was recommended by my dealer

I don't think that tyre wear is an absolute thing, it can be controlled by the rider. A rider can manage his/her tyres just as they do in WSBK or MotoGP. For me the rears wear out in the middle, the fronts on the side. The rears wear out mainly from wheel spin I think which can be controlled with traction control, either electronic or from a meat based life form. The fronts I don't know, I don't break that heavily on the street so the the middle is pretty good, the sides go in about the same time as the rear centre so economically pretty good.

Getting tyre pressures right is also a good way to extend the tyre life. I got abused by the sales rep at the bike shop for running too low pressures in my tyres (30F, 28R). I pointed out to him that, yes, they were low but the wear is near perfect and that's what I go by.

Everyone is different, people can learn, you don't have to accept the status quo with your tyre wear, adapt and you can keep your favourite tyres and still get some life out of them.

I just ordered a Rosso 3. I've got a lot more long-distance riding planned this summer than trackdays.

No one with Bridgestone S21R (My favorite)?? or Dunlop SportSmart 2, both of then 4.000mi, traction control in 3 and opening gas without problem.

For me it is the perfect compromise for the street, between a fast warm-up, good performance and duration, it is true that the circuit is not enough
