Stock Tire Height (200/60-ZR17) Changing to a 200/55-ZR-17

Ok, I'm in the market for a new rear tire. I'm looking at the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II tire. The OEM tire is the SuperCorsa SP V3 in a 200/60-ZR17. The Corsa II only comes in a 200/55-ZR-17.
Has anyone changed to this size tire yet?
Will this slight change in height screwup the electronics?
I heard a rumor it will screw up the ABS but I really don't care on the track (Race mode disables ABS) I am concerned for street use.

The bike has a "Tire Calibration" mode so I assume you'll be able to fit any tire you like.

Like BSR1 said, it has a tire calibration process you can run through which should sort you out. Just need enough room to ride at exactly 32mph or something without stopping..

As for rear ABS in race mode, it isn't permanently disabled. It can be on or off, but is off by default initially. If you want to be able to slide it into the corners with the rear brake, you have to enable it in race mode.

Ducati told me I could put different form factor tires on the bike, the calibration mode exists for that reason. I will probably go with Q3+s on my next set.

Thanks, I had assumed the same thing. My dealer was not able to answer my question (what is the purpose of the tire calibration). I was told that the tire calibration feature has nothing to do with tire size and they were supposed to let me know. I'm still waiting for an answer. The owners manual could explain why the "Tire Calibration" is performed a little better. "Teaching in the tire rolling circumference and final drive ratio" is an unusual statement. Why not just say this function is to calibrate the electronics when new tires are installed?

In Italy the only compliant tyre is the Dunlop D 213 GP Pro 200/60/17 and 120/70/17. Any other size not allowed.

... In that case, do you have to re-do the calibration every time you change gearing ratio too ?

It appears to me like the RSV4’s I have had you need to calibrate if you change tire brands & profiles. If you run the same rear and put on a new you should be good to go.

That would be my assumption.

I was told by me dealer that the calibration will not allow for a 55 rear and that the TC will have problems if you run anything other than a 60 profile tyre. If you compare the two side by side there is a fairly big difference in size.

I have to say im not totally convinced but I wasn't willing to test it on the track, I would be very interested in feedback from someone running a 55 if the TC and slide control still function correctly.
Thanks from Georgian Ducatisti
