Winter Tyres for the 1199S??
Hi all, does anyone know it there are any winter tyres available in the UK yet for the 1199S in the correct size? If so where and what are they? Cheers

No. And there never will be. The stock ones grip well in the wet, but don't have enough tread to disperse of standing rain water. I'd recommend going to a groover who can add 10-12 (or 30) channels on the sides if you're serious about riding in the rain. Otherwise, the stock ones do pretty well in all but really terrible conditions.

I looked into this a while back, there wasn't a huge amount of choice out there. I've ridden a bit in the rain recently and I'd agree with AntiHero, the Supercorsa's are better than you think in the wet, I was surprised how much heat they generated. Obviously they are going to struggle to clear standing water though. I did see a Panigale at Oulten earlier this year with heavily treaded tyres - might have been full wets though.
