I have no experience with either, but based on a bunch of looking around on the forums, I expect that the tire recommendations are likely to boil down to Pirelli Diablo Rosso and Dunlop Sportmax Q2. You can't go wrong with either one of those.
I expect the Q2 will probably behave more like the stock tire. It will also probably cost a few dollars less.
Beyond that, it seems like some folks prefer the feel of one over the other, but both have about the same number of strong advocates.
Here are some informative links. Sounds like the Road 3 might work as long as you don't get too crazy in the twisties or anything, and it might be better in the rain. If you think you're more likely to ride very aggressively, better go with a sportier Michelin or Pirelli.
I also like the Pirelli angels. What does everyone do for pairing the tires when replacing only a rear? I thought it mattered? I was told you'll go through one front for two rear tires, so to consider a brand or tire model change when you replace the front?
Well I have the 500F and I will never be riding the tyre walls to the max. It's a hobby bike only but we have some nice roads. I think the main thing is I want to know they are good all rounders and If I do get caught in the rain that they handle well.
pirellis rosso 2s are superb for our bikes and i am getting one set of corsa2s once i reach 12.000 km - only 3000 km left fortunately - as Dunlops still grip well.
Or you can get the tire vulcanized - patched from inside - and can continue using it.
You can push the pliers through this hole.....and I won't trust that being fixed properly. It's an expense I could have done without but I think I will take the opportunity to change both tyres for some Pirelli Angel's. They seem a good all round choice and will suit my riding. Just stay away from glass!
I've been reading up a lot on this and I think it makes the best sense for this bike and for me.
