Riding my Hypermotard every day to work - a round trip of 76 miles - means that longevity was the first consideration, with performance second, when I put new tyres on mine.
I went for Pirelli Diablo Strada given that these are more on the touring end of the Diablo market rather than the sporty end, and I have to say that I'm very impressed with them! I've spent since June '11 riding on them, have even done a trackday at Cadwell on them where I had no issues (except with my own riding style sliding the rear around!) so I would recommend them for those who want the extra mileage. They are wearing nicely now (the bike has just passed 14K miles) with no signs of premature wear.
I picked up a pair (120/70ZR17 & 180/55ZR17) for £165 brand new mail order which was a bargain!
