I just got my KS and it came with the Michelin PP.
My fear is based not on my experience with the tire but several posts on line of riders saying that their Michelin's PP just let go when they pushed them hard with no warning and they have had low-sides on their bikes.
Anyone care to comment? I know you could say rider error, but some of these guys are WERA racers and others have a lot of riding experience.
BTW, I have Strada's on my Aprilia and I love that tire. Great grip, feedback, and so far good milage. I've got 1000 miles on them and you can't tell they aren't new. Has anyone had any experience with the Pirelli Diablo Strada's on the KS?
I know, different bikes but both are sport-touring. I know, just wear out the Michelin's and spoon on Strada's. Would like your comments relating your experience.
