Don't think it is a stupid question.
I'd like to see someone explain the science.
My V4 Panigale runs a 200/60 rear as stock on identical sized Marchesini wheels that we have on our 1098 SF. Using the logic that the wider tyre & higher profile tyre somehow diminishes handling doesn't gel, I can tell you by riding a V4 Pani it turns on a dime.
The V4 SF will definitely run a 200/60, Carlin Dunne was running one on Pikes Peak.
If it doesn't fit physically , doesn't fit - all good, that explains that but I don't really get how anyone here came to their conclusions.
I ran a 190 rear on my Hypermotard 939SP and it vastly improved the handling on track and at speed.
