a durable 200/55R17 rear tire?

my preferred tire is the Pirelli Supercorsa, but they're not particularly long lived. I don't mind the tire change intervals, but I'm brewing up a plan to to a long distance tour on my 1299, and with endless miles of highway, it'd be a waste to run my normal tire.

If the Angel GT came in a 200/55 size I'd be set. I know I can just mount a 190 but I have to be difficult lol. More to the point, it took some time to get used to, and grow to prefer the 200 tire size. I'd really like to keep the feel of my bike, but just have a rear tire whose center can last 5000+ miles.

Anyone know of a solid sport touring tire in 200/55 size? All I've found are tires meant for Harleys, and while I'm sure they'll get the highway job done, I don't think they were designed to lean much!

I swapped to 190/55 Q3. Ran the Traction control recalibration. Not a single issue whatsoever. Saves a good 70 bucks per tire too.

Turn the traction control up. If you are touring or commuting then you don't need all the power all the time; turn it down when you get to the twisty bits. I got 7000k out of a Supercorsas on both my 1299 and my Tuono. I even did trackdays (not many but it did help even out the wear on the sides to the centre).

Cheers

That's actually a clever idea re: traction control. I'm pretty gentle with tires anyways; I'll get 4k out of a Supercorsa if I don't do any track days.

I like the tire profile of Pirellis over other brands - I use Pirelli not because it's OEM, but because I've tried damned near everything else out there and the shape of Pirelli's tires suit my riding style.

However, I am quite curious about the Metzeler M7RR. But if I can get the same life out of a Diablo, I probably won't change brands.

I run Angel GTs on my Multistrada. That is the perfect touring tire IMHO.

I'm looking into the custom bracket work I'll need for panniers, but when done, I'll have a very interesting "Panigale Granturismo"
