I haven't ridden the 180 setup, but I did ride the 190 setup. I think the visual difference is worth the extra dough. The sport wheels with the wider tire just look better to me. As for differences in handling....I think it would be very hard to tell the difference on a bike with the weight and wheelbase of the K1200R.lcgio said:I'm ordering my KR soon and haven't had a chance to test ride KR with stock wheels/tires and sport wheels/190 tires to compare them. Has anyone riden both set ups? Is there a big difference in handling with the 180 rear tire and the 190?
