That sounds like complete bullshit from the dealer.
As the majority of wets do not even come in a 200 profile, never mind the 60 aspect
ratio, the bike would be unable to handle track duties for any racer.

Ok forum members, has anyone run a different tire then the SuperCorsa SP V3 tire in a 200/60-ZR-17 size?

Considering the SP V3 is only on the V4, unlikely. Most people haven't put the mileage on theirs yet. I am giving mine a good thrashing and have put about 3000 miles on them now, some of it track, and they still have some life left. I will probably be one of the first people to see the death of the SP V3s since I'm stacking on miles pretty quick. Thinking of either trying out the Q3+s in the 190/55 form factor, but might stick with the Supercorsas if the V3s last as long as they are looking. They're hanging in there much better than people say the V2s do.

I used the V2s on my Tuono. I just learned that the V3 is a dual compound tire. I did a trackday at Barber and the tire held up well. Going to VIR next Friday. 90% right handers, the tire will be done after that. I guess I may be one of the first guinea pigs.

Not quite. Mine has 6000km on the clock and is having its 3rd rear tyre and first front tyre replacement done tomorrow.

The bike isnít that smart. Tire calibration basically calibrates the wheel speed sensors front and back. When you do the calibration the bike looks at the signal inputs when the bike is at a fixed speed and corrects the angular speed difference between the two sensors so that the TC doesnít think the wheels are slipping when they arenít (or vice versa). It shouldnít matter what size tires are on it, it should be able to calibrate for them all.

No. Gearing doesn't change the rotational speed of the wheels in relation to one another.

3000 miles?! that's very impressive! about 4800 kms i supposed. try to post a pic up but damn hard so i give up. pretty sure the SuperCorsa v3 side compound is super soft compare to diablo corsa or diablo rosso 2 or 3 as i noticed the treat so much different after track day, did about 1500 kms so far and i hope it could last more than 3800 kms. might have problem replace them as i check around, no Supercorsa v3 200/60 in australia yet...

I got two track days (Barber and VIR south) out of the rear tire. Both courses are primarily rights turns. My tire is toast. I found a good pressure setting yesterday 32 front 27 rear (HOT). I'll need to order a new tire soon. I'm not sure if I what to change rear tire sizes just yet. I'm still getting used to this thing. Road Atlanta is next.
I'm finally getting used to the lean angles this bike can generate. Not to mention the fact that this is the FASTEST bike I have ever ridden. The South course at VIR has a fairly long straight that goes up hill, I was able to glance down at the speedo a few times and noticed 180 MPH before my braking point!!!! The bike seems very loose in the braking zones but this is probably due to the front static sag being off by 3mm and the fact that I was braking from 180 down to about 30-40MPH for a second gear off camber right hander.
The wheelie control was actually kind of funny, there's one point on the course where (for lack of a better term) the bottom drops out if I hit my apex properly before that point the front comes up about 2 feet while I'm behind the bubble! What an amazing bike. Sadly I was getting killed off the right hand corners due to a combination of wheel spin and TC.
