Everyone’s thoughts on tires?
on: October 27, 2020, 11:10:56 PM
I have narrowed down my next tire set to the Michelin power 5 set, as I have run many Michelin sets before on other bikes and loved them. I was curious as to everyone’s thoughts / feedback on running the 200/55 series over the oem size of 190?

I made this change on my previuos Ktm SD. It looks great, but honestly the feeling is worse, especially the handling on twisty roads. But if you drive most of the time on straight roads, it could be a good choice. I didn't check on the bike documents, but here in Italy, if not explicitly indicated on these, it's not allowed to change the tyres dimensions.
