I was nice to the new bike for the 1st 1000km and have gotten more aggressive as experience on the bike is gained. I can't see a new Supercorsa lasting much more than 2000Km. People tell me crazy low mileage they have gotten from a Supercorsa rear.
I want a performance tyre but don't want to be replacing it every other week.
I stumbled into a set of Metzeler M9 RR. They seem pretty good. After an hour or two on them I'm throwing the bike into corners just as happily as I would on the Pirelli.
I thought that coming off the Supercorsa that a "lesser" tyre might no seem so good but these are nice.
So, cheaper, nice handling, plenty of stick and if they get more than a couple of thousand K then I'm a winner :-)
