New Michelin power RS swap

Just put a set of Michelin power RS on the Panigale . Excited to see how this bike handles with these new tires . I loved the pirelli but unfortunately they square off way to quickly because of how soft / fragile they are . Hopefully the Michelinís do a better job at keeping their shape .

grip bars , grab throttle and twist !

Is the rear a 60/200 or a 55/200?

If anyone is nervous about a tire swap on this bike I wouldnít be . I swapped to the Michelin power RS and Iíve very happy to report the bike rides great . I havenít had any issues with the traction control or any of the other rider aids . I put about 400 miles of these and I love them . I actually like them better than the stock Pirelli tires . The profile is slightly different and the bike seems to turn in a bit less drastically than before ... anyone who is sick of getting 1500 miles out of the Pirelliís I would recommend checking these out . Iím curious as to how long these will last on this tire eating beast.
