Tire choices

Has anyone put a set of Pirelli Super Corsas on there 2015/16 R1. I have torched 2 sets of RS10s in no time. I did some street riding and 1 track day at COTA on each set.

Yes, many of us have changed to Pirelli Supercorsa SP V2... including me. I did a track day on them and about 100 street miles... they looked a lot better then my RS10s did.

All depends on how you ride I ended up going to sc2 slicks cause I couldn't get more than 1k miles out of the sp v2's

Yes, that's a big part of it. If you're a high end intermediate or advanced than slicks are the way to go. I'm still slow but I expect to go to intermediate at my first track day next year.

Even not up to full temp the slicks will out grip the spv2 hands down
