Pirelli Rosso Corsa II vs Supercorsa

time to replace the front tire. after three years of Supercorsas, I put a Rosso III on the rear and I'm quite happy with it. A true hard street compound center, and the sides are plenty sticky enough for most riding. I've yet to track the Rosso III but I'm willing to bet I don't have the talent to outride that tire.

however, in thinking about the front, I want maximum stickiness, which means another Supercorsa. However, as most of my riding is street riding, I'm thinking if I went with a dual-compound rear with the Rosso III, why not a dual compound front?

- in terms of advanced but definitely nowhere near pro racer ability, how much can a Rosso Corsa II stick when leaned over compared to a Supercorsa V3?

- and my real concern: are Rosso Corsa IIs any better in the rain than Supercorsas?

btw, I'm not considering a Rosso III front because it's not dual compound.

Im about to replace both the front and rears on mine as was considering a straight replacement with the SuperCorsa Pro V3's so this is a timely post. The V3s look like they only come in a 200/60 rear, I guess the traction control auto calibration will take care of the change in size though - will it fit under the oe rear hugger?

Where are people getting good deals on tires - $480 for a pair from Revzilla seems expensive to me ?

it'll fit, but you have to manually calibrate the bike. instructions for how to do it are in the manual. basically, you select tire calibration in the main menu, then follow a certain riding procedure on a flat surface with enough space to reach the speeds required.
