    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. :thumb

    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.

    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...

    Nice although not enough to tempt me from my 1200. That new Hypermotard as a second bike though :tb

    Why do Ducati keep building bikes I need to own. It's most unfair......

    As a recent convert to the Bologna marque, i can only sit back and admire what they, KTM and BMW are doing. The show at Milan highlights that the big 4 are in terminal decline here in Yerp.
