For a 620 Class A Monster, what's the control tyre and why don't people use it at other times?

One would think that it would pay to stay with what you know etc...

Dunlop qualifier @ 135 a pair.

I assume people do use them as a road tyre but they probably don't have the usual longevity of a conventional road tyre.

That and the fact they are H-rated so my insurance would be a bit suspect if I fitted them on any of my road bikes which all have Z-rated recommended by the manufacture

And if its a trackday bike then again you shouldn't be using a 160 H-rated tyre on the bigger bikes, not many have Ducati 600s and 620s as Trackday bikes
