michellin pilot power 3 question

i just recently fitted in the new pp3 tires on the bike, my last tires that was on it was the stock bt0016 this is on a 08 zx10. on those tires i had the bike leaned almost all the way over to the edge of the tire, they were worn out in the center from the previous owner. after fitting these i have been going alot faster in the same turns, same body position and the wear is shown about 2 inches from the edge, this is a big change, is this new tire offer that much more lean angle vs the bt0016? the pilot power 2ct on my zx6r has been all the way side to side and that was a lot slower speed.

just wondering if anyone else has tryed the new tire and noticed the same thing. this is a great tire tho and very predictable and holds the line perfectly once you turn in.

The PP tires just have a much different profile. They are typically a bit narrower and rounder than the others which makes it harder to get them scrubbed in to the edges.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
