I echo what @sushifly wrote.
The SC lasted much longer on my Panigale than those on the 1200R.
Couple of reasons for that:
1) The Monster has more torque....lots more.
2) I ride the Panigale completely differently from the Monster. On the Panigale, I seek to be as smooth as possible especially when exiting a curve. On the Monster, I'm constantly on and off the throttle mostly in a straight line. That torque is addictive but the fix comes at the price of tire wear.

17 R- I got 2700 out of the rear and it had cords showing. No track days so the sidewalls were still like new. I was hoping it would make so I could use all the tire but no deal. 4200 miles on the bike now and the front is about done. Lots of riding in the next week with bike week here. I should make until next week I hope. Dealer has 3 in stock and they get 210 for a front installed which is dawn good. Rear was like 320 installed.

2016 Monster 1200R w/~3500 miles on the original tires.

Front tire is down to ~2mm, rear has lots of meat to go. This seems counter intuitive. On my Harleys, the rear always goes waaay before the front.

I check my air pressure religiously (FT: 33PSI RR: 35PSI), ride solo, and only do spirited street riding (no track, wheelies, burn outs, etc.).

Why did my front wear quicker than my rear?

I'm about to put on a set of Rosso III's, unless someone can talk me out of it.

Thanks

I recently changed to the Angel GT's, love them and how they feel on turns. Currently have 1k miles on them, don't see them lasting much past 5k tho. Anyone who is getting close to 9-10k out of these on this bike must not know where the throttle is. I weigh 165 btw so it's def not my weight wearing them down, just sayin..

Is it just me or are you finding that Pirelli inventories are low to unavailable?
Couldn't find a Rosso Corsa 2 for the Panigale in my size and scooped-up the last SC from the distributor.
Glad I picked-up a Rosso 3 front last month to match the rear on the Monster or I probably would be out of luck at this time of the year.

When riding solo with OEM SC, Ducati recommends 33psi front and 30 psi rear. (Owner's manual page 255). Not sure if that could account for the inconsistency but it is what it is.

About 3200 km, still on the original Supercorsa SP's. Spirited street riding only. For me it seems that the front wears quicker than the rear. I measured the remaining thread relative to the indicators.

On the front I have 1 mm left on the sides and about 1,5-2 mm in the middle.
On the rear 2-2,5 mm on the sides and 2,5-3 mm in the middle.

I'm going to schedule to do an oil service in a month so I'll probably have done around 4000 km by then. I think I should also schedule a tire change (at least the front) but I'm not sure, any ideas? It's the first time I've measured it so I'm not sure how long they will last because I don't know how much thread depth I started out with.
