    Best Options for replacing the 200 Supercorsa SP rear tire??

    I recently upgraded my 2013 to a 2018 Factory. My previous tire choice for commuting, aggressive canyon riding and the occasional track day for years were Q2, Q3 and Q3 plus tires...I love them... I ride 8000 miles/year so even hough the stock Supercorsa SP are awesome sticky tires, I can't live with tires that last less than <2000 miles and of course they are almost twice the price of Q3 plus which last me ~4000 miles. The dilemma is that Q3s apparently are not available in the 200 rear size. What alternate tires are you running on your factory? Been looking at Bridgestone S21 or the Rosso Corsa II tires any thought how the compare to Q3's?

    Couldn't you replace the 200 rear with a 190 Q3+? Save a few bucks and stick with a profile you are familiar and comfortable with.

    I went to a q3+ (190) after I put on just over 5000 on the Supercorsa. I'm just about at 3000 miles on my current Supercorsa tires on my RSV4 1100 Factory and they seem to have plenty left in them.

    I ride like a baby though so mileage may vary.

    Q4 comes in a 200/55/17

    Just put a set on my 18 TF

    No miles on them yet, but I have the same tires (190 though) on 2 other bikes and they are grippy long(er) lasting tires. I love them- so I am sure the Tuono will like them too!Click image for larger version.

    Just go with a Q3+ in 190. Dunlops measure a tiny bit wider than Pirelli in the equivalent size, so you're not losing much. Plus I'm not sure why you're sweating that when you used them for years prior. You don't need a 200 on there, unless you just really want one. And if so my vote goes to either Pirelli Rosso III or Rosso Corsa II.

    I replaced my worn Supercorsa with a 190/55 Rosso Corsa II.
    No noticeable decrease in traction for road riding and good handling and mileage.
    I would not fit a 200 again unless tracking the bike.

    I have the Q4 now and they wear supper quick !
    The Michelin RS is good and dual compound .
    Find left over discontinued Q3’s !
    Swap to the 190 Q3 +
    S21’s
    For the $$$ I see most with the S21 check DK for price ( rebates )

    I think after these Q4’s I’ll be back to Michelin’s as I like to have my local Shop mount and balance for me , and they can get Michelin’s for close to Bridgestone price . The bridgestones might be a better tire today I’m just used to Michelin’s ?

    The Q4 is to soft for street as it’ll flat spot quick !!!

    Go with the Q3+ for the balance of performance and durability. 190/55 and you're good to go. I just had to try the Q4s for an upcoming trackday and my 2013 shredded the rear in one day. It WAS an amazing day and super fun, but... moving forward I'm running slicks on the track and Q3+ for street.

    I rode Supercorsa SPs on my 2017 Tuono, I went thru loads of them then I tried the Rosso Corsa 2, which sits just below the Supercorsa and covers 90% of what the Supercorsa does but also lasts a long time and is amazing on the road.

    Another option I've had good luck with (in a 190) is metzeler m7RR. 200 size on sale for $188.xx around town too https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...ec-m7-rr-tires
