I have been very happy with the Dunlop Q3's. And I have had great results with Michelin tires

The michelin pilot power 3 are good tires for the street and have a lot of rubber on them , but when pushed on the track they are not that great.

I like the profile and grip from the Michelin Pilot 2CT. The shape of the rear seems to work a bit better with the 1x98/848 suspension geometry than the Power 3, Q3, Rosso Corsa etc etc. The original Power is the same shape but not dual compound for street riding. Helps initial turn in without sacrificing any stability at full lean.

Rosso II are great for the street and offer lots of mileage, grip and confidence in the wet. I have not tried the Rosso III yet, but I am sure it is better than the last one.

Had a Rosso 2 4500 miles.
Pilot road 4 7000 till a nail killed it at half it's life. Good for Lilongwe life but don't hammer down out a turn in less then 3rd.
Got a angel gt for Christmas gunna see how that does this year.

Tires

After shredding up the Pirelli Rosso rear tire that came on my 2016 1200 S STRIPE monster in under 3000 miles,,I decided to go with the Pirelli Grand Turismo, on the advice of the Ducati dealer here in Redondo Beach,,They said that the feedback on this tire was really good,, and that It would last longer,no kidding right ? lol ..,I wanted to stick with the Pirelli / Ducati matchup,,so to speak,,same as on the Ferrari,,With that being said,,here in So Cal,,its warm most of the time,,and I have used other sport touring tires on all my other bikes,,Metzler, Dunlap, Bridgies,,,ETC<,,And the Pirellis are just as good,,,nice thick tread pattern,,The weather here for the last month has barely got into the 60 s ,,and this tire seems to be doing well,,It does take longer to get heated up,, I had a few slides riding fast on these tires cold,,,but they were very predictable...I will stay with the softer Rosso in the front, once it wears out,,,I think that would be a winning set up for sure..

Good Luck,,

+ 1 on the Q3's. I had the Q2' before and I got great mileage from them, so far the Q3 are holding up really good. Hard on the middle for better mileage but softer on the sides for the twisties and they get pretty hot fairly quick.
