I ride mostly canyon on the HM but unfortunately, a few longer rides on the interstate really put a hurting on the softer tires. I have almost 1800 on the supercorsa SP that it came with. The rear is done and I'll be looking at your suggestions. Thanks guys. A lot of good info here.

Iím telling you.... the Diablo Rosso III.

It must be the III. A huge improvement over previous versions.

Hard to beat.
I totally agree although I do run the Supercorsa's.

Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2

There are many pics of track tires around but these are purely from street riding. Do you think they are SOFT and STICKY on their edges? If street cornering is your thing, here's your DOT tire. They even warm up reasonably quick. The downside, of course, is price, poor wet performance and short life. Cheers!

This is the truth. I personally run them as well and it's 4,000 kms to a rear. I can see why one might step "down" to a Q3 or maybe a DR3 if one was so inclined to commute or do light touring. I personally would never put a heavy, less sticky, higher mileage tire on there like a pilot road or an Angel GT. If you've gone as far as to shell out the extra $$$ for the SP with its lighter wheels and trick suspension, then why sabotage all that with sub-par rubber? My POV...to each their own.

I'm pleased with the performance of the Metzeler Sportec M7 RR I put on about 3000 miles ago. Good balance between all out performance and daily commute life. I'm probably 2/3s through the life of the rear with 100 highway/neighborhood commute miles during the week and 100-200 canyon type road spirited miles from weekends.

After reading tons of reviews and checking out the tire in person, I recently installed a set of Michelin Power RS tires on my 14' SP. It has the 2ct Michelin compound so the centers are harder than the sides which should increase mileage on the street. Two days ago I did my first track day with them and they were perfectly at home all the way on the edge in both my wet and dry sessions. I can't speak for mileage yet since I only have about 600 miles on them but so far they aren't really showing any wear in the centers at all.

Resurrecting this thread to discuss the 2019 Hypermotard tire choices.

The supercorsas that came with the 2019 SP are nice but are wearing out really quickly.

I was very satisfied with the Michelin Power RS tires on my Panigale, so I will be getting a set for the hyper as well.

After I run them, I will report back.

One more thing to consider, the Michelin Power RS is the lighter tire at 13.6 pounds and the Supercorsa is 6% heavier at 14.4 pounds.

But the Pirelli front is 4.5% lighter.
