Dunlop isn’t making the 190 slick anymore according to their website. They are selling a 200/55 and a 200/60 which is new and specific they say for liter bikes. I haven’t run the 200/60 yet, only the 200/55. The new 200 is about the same diameter as the Pirelli and Michelin 200.

A little more info to consider.

190/55 is 2035mm circumference
200/55 is 2064mm circumference
200/60 is 2108mm circumference

As a rider you should very much feel the difference between the 3. Going from a 190 up the scale will take away swingarm angle and decrease trail. The bigger tire helps with contact patch but takes away swingarm angle and trail. This translates to better turn in on entry but causes the bike wide on exit.

Stupidity and Motivation are a dangerous combination

The new Dunlop 200/60 is bigger than the Michelin and the Pirelli, also the Dunlop front is bigger than both.

190/55 - 200/60

Maybe others won't have to, but I had to add a couple of links to fit
the 200 with a +2 rear sprocket.

oh... Pirelli Superbike Slicks for the win!

Be careful with that website. Those numbers arent correct for the size of the tires, not sure where they're getting their numbers from. It's saying ALL manufactures tire is the same size and that's just not true.

200/55-17 circumference
Dunlop - 2064mm
Pirelli - 2060mm
Michelin - 2086mm
Bridgestone - 2057mm
