SV650S tyre choice

I need to replace the tyres on my SV650S (K5). I've narrowed it down to three choices: Pirelli Diablo, Pirelli Diablo Strada, or Metzeler ME880 - BUT I'm happy to have my mind changed!! :roll eyes:

At the moment I use the bike mainly for commuting, approx 30 miles per day, all weather, with the occasional ride-out! However, I start a new job in a month's time which requires me to use a company car :mad: so the bike will become more for leisure use and ride-outs, etc...

I'm a novice big-biker (8 months) and would welcome any advice...

Hi, i have an SV650s and use Avon Vipers, sticky enough for just playing, which it sounds like that will be all you will do. Hunt for good prices. I got 1 front and 2 rear for 199 quid

Best Tyres for th sv

:smileHad a sv650 k4 as fun bike found Pirelli Diablo the best for grip on a sunday blast they will last about 6,000k and will inspire great confidence. the Strada will last longer but a little less grip. The Metzeler Z6 sport tec isn't half bad very grippy but about 4,000k mileage but not so good in the cold and wet...
