Supercorsa 200/60 SP Winter

Time for new rubber, any thoughts on these tires for fast road use in winter, average air temp 14c the occasional damp patch occasional rain if caught out. Try not to ride in the wet but dont mind it if the grip is ok. Only used SC's in the dry. People tell me that other tires are better, M7's or PR5's but really like the feel and feedback from the SC's

Winter... yeah right

I would keep the supercorsa SP. I really like the grip, also in colder conditions

I rode on Supercorsas this winter in NY. -7 c through +2 C and the tires felt good. I adjusted the riding style for the cold tires, but do not recall any problems with them at all.

14 C is warm!

That said, they still wear quickly even in the cold. 2000 miles of winter riding and they were toast.

I don't think you have another street option tire in that size. If you change sizes then lots of options in that temperature and give you better life. SuperCorsa SP temp range is higher than what you are using them for. I would suggest Michelin Power RS but its a 200/55 17

Thanks for the input, a friends got a superduke with PR 5's, good in the wet and a pretty capable tire. The advice I've had is stick with supercorsas, it's what the Ducati recommend for the bike. Mostly roads but getting keen on trackdays as I've done 2 now and can see more coming up in my crystal ball, they are pretty hard on tires. Today I went for a 150k ride before I change them. Set DWC off and DTC to 2 as part of learning the bike, the road was typical winter conditions, a mixture of damp/drying, some tar snakes and a coarse this chip road surface which is pretty popular here in NZ but traction on it is so so, plus one 5k section which is unsealed (hard packed gravel of some sort) to get from one good back road to another. Some slides on the damp bits, bunny hop wheelies on the dirt road in 1,2 and 3 and practicing breaking it loose on those corners just for fun. As you can imagine the rubber which was nearly on the wear bars is now retired from active duty
A set of new supercorsa's are the best part of $750 here so I will be better behaved.
