What size rear tyre? I have a RSV4 Factory APRC which has a 200 rear as standard. What rear do you recommend? Sticking with the 200 or changing to a 190 or 180?

My 2011 and 2014 RSV4 Factory models come with 200 profile. 180 section isn't an alternative option in the book but 190/50 and 190/55 are. I spoke to a tyre guru and decided to listen to him and fitted the 190/50 section. Result? Bike is easier to tip in and feels a bit more responsive, not to say that it wasn't with the 200 section but I changed to a 190 section only because I couldn't find a good 200 section winter tyre. I'm running Michilin pilot power 2ct now and won't swap! :)
Now that..........aint slow!
