I traded my 13’ in on a new 1260 s and cannot wait to get the Scorpion Trail 2s off of this bike. I have leaned over far enough to go over the edge of the tread on these. I have found using the 190/50 instead of the 190/55 in the rear provides a little bit more round profile of the tire. This gives me a little more tire on the sides. The 50 series has a little shorter sidewall to allow this.
Try it out for yourself. I usually get about 4K miles out of a rear and about 6 to 8k out of the front. Keep in mind, I do not ride them very far into the wear bars. Tires are cheap insurance.
