rear tyre size on rc8r

does anyone know if a 180 rear would work on this bike, as i had one fitted to my tuono and it held a line in a bend much better and didn't run wide?

RC8 rear tyre

Standard rear tyre size is a 190/55 ZR17 so a 180 would fit the rim. Not sure if it would work though as the RC8 has a bit more power than the V2 tuono and whilst it will flick from side to side quicker grip will be compromised

if it flicks quicker would it hold the line more in the corner,    must admit bit worried about putting on a 180 so just ordered a corsa 2 190 section .
