Those pressures may sound low, but that's what people found worked well on the previous generation multistrada. I think I got around 6000 miles out of the rear in mixed use touring. I ran a 180 rear without issue. It's a solid tire and I think I paid around 100 bucks online. I just put on PR3 and don't have much experience yet, but he turn in feels sharper than the dunlops.

Another tire I would consider before going with another Scorp is the Conti Trail Attack. They're now available in a 180/55ZR17 and 120/70ZR17, so they're suitable for the Multi and have a similar mission (90/10) to the Pirellis.

I thought the Multi ran a 190 in the back.

It does but a 180 will fit just fine.

Sweet!

Report back how you like them once you get some miles on them. I LOVE the RA2's, and imagine the TA's will be equally good.

From personal experience...Aprilia had the brilliant notion of fitting a 180-55 on a 6 inch rim on the Dorsoduro. I never liked that. I always felt that i was running out of tire.

That having been said, i have Trail Attacks on my 955 Tiger and they're essentially a Road Attack with a lot more tread.

My Tuono Factory had 6" rims and a stock 180 tire - never had any issues getting near the edge, but never felt like I was running out of tire. You need to get your arse off the seat, mate. ;)

But I did like a 190 a bit better - especially the Dragon Supercorsa's. Seemed to slow down the turn-in, which was already really fast on a bike like the Tuono...

It's crazy the number of tire choices we have - the shape/profile makes such a huge difference.

My buddy runs Supercorsa's on his Multi and loves them...all 190's. He just bought a brand-new set of Roadsmart's I think...anxious to see how he likes them.

Hyperstrada

According to the article "The 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada will be available in Ducati Red or Arctic White with gray trellis frame and black wheels for a price of $13,295." But it is not on the Ducatiusa.com website yet but it is on Ducati.com.

A bargain Multi. I love it! I wonder what fuel capacity will be. Is 5 gallons too much to hope for?

It is basically a KTM 990 SMT..size weight, HP, etc...a bit sportier than the MS but also a bit less comfort...
