The Ducati is really sensitive to tyre pressures and prefers the tyre pressures to be well down in comparison to other bikes. For example, the FireBlade is more than happy with pressures of 36 front and 42 rear, although I do run 34 40 instead, the 1098s wants 31 front and 33 rear for standard road use and into the 20s for the track.
This is why leaving the dealer with 36 42 dialled in, the bike felt horrid. I don't blame the dealer, but it will certainly give me pause of thought when these need replacing early next year.
I've been a really big fan of Pirelli tyres for several years now and although they are really expensive, the trust I have in them is worth every penny. The Rosso 3 have the profile of the Supercorsa, but with an increased level of tread, making them a better all round tyre. The Supercorsas are brilliant, but if riding on a damp or wet road, the Rosso 3 would out perform them with ease.
