Q Which is the best wide tyre for my Mon­ster?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

My last bike, a KTM 950 SM, worked re­ally well on Miche­lin Pilot Road 3s. The fast warm-up and wet grip was more use­ful than the grip a sports tyre pro­vides in the dry. The prob­lem is my new Mon­ster 1200R has a 200-sec­tion rear, which lim­its choice. Brian Cable, email

An­swered by Bryn Phillips, A Cam­brian Tyres You could con­sider a less ex­treme sports tyre than your OE Su­per­corsa SPS. Bridge­stone’s Bat­t­lax S21, Pirelli Di­ablo Rosso III and Met­zeler Sportec M7RR are all rec­om­mended for your bike in the 200/55 ZR17 rear size. All will sup­ply su­pe­rior per­for­mance in cold and wet con­di­tions and bet­ter mileage than your cur­rent tyres.
