It depends on the make in regard to running a 200 wide tyre. I'd suggest a 195/55 as it is the best size tyre for our rear rim and offers the largest footprint when leant over on the side of the tyre. I use Michelin Power RS on my bike after trying various tyres on track and the Michelin was what I found to be the best of what is available.

4 wheels move the body, but 2 wheels move the soul.

Agree with Robieben. 195/55. Handle much better than the 190's in my opinion. I've been using Avon Tires. They wear like iron and handle great also. Just put on a set of Avon Spirit ST's on and really impressed. I had a set of Avon Storm 3D's on a yamaha MT-09 I sold last year with 10k miles on the tires and they looked almost new. I'm a pretty aggressive rider also. Enjoy!

They mis-spoke, there is no such size in motorcycle tires. I think they meant 190/55.

This is the only help I can offer:

OEM is 190/50. If you want the bike to turn in quicker, go 190/55.

If you somehow add 50 HP to the bike, consider going to a 200. If you somehow add 50 HP and want the bike to turn in quicker go with 200/55.

If you're going to race on a slow, technical track, consider a 180/55. If you're going to race on a fast, easy track, consider a 190/50.

If you always ride in the rain, get a tire with a lot of sipes. If you always ride when it's dry, don't get a tire with a lot of sipes.

There is no 195/N anything at this time (not in my market).
