Wheelie control? tire calibration? what for??????Things I would like to see on the new Corse would be:
Full color TFT screen from the 1299 (TFT screens are now actually cheaper to produce than LCD)
Of coarse price would play a big role. The more premium the price, the more I would want to see. Such as:
Ohlins rear shock
Tire calibration (So we can use more than one brand)
In my opinion, if it's a Corse (race) model it should be given things that will help you get around a track faster.
use a 190/55. Thats what my road tires are.Tire Calibration so you can run the more easy to find 180/55/17 without it messing with the traction control. The computer needed for cornering ABS also allows for wheelie control, so you may as well just throw it in to say it's there.
The M7rr i use for street dont come in 180/60. 180/55 (which is far too small for this bike) or 190/55 (which has the closest profile to the 180/60) the 190/55 is still not as tall and the curve of the wider tire you require some more input when leaning over. ive use both a 200/55 &200/60 but on the OEM 5.5 rim, this isnt ideal, but works fair.I'm just curious as to the reason for going with something other than the OE 180/60? Looking for something with a harder compound? More mileage? Price? Bigger selection? The reason I ask is it seems the OE spec Pirelli tire works extremely well on this bike, and offers relatively long tire life, (for what it is) so I just wondered why the search for the different sizes? Tires are always evolving so it's always an interesting topic, IMO.
