B4 910 Tyre Size

Hello all
I am about to purchase a new set of tyres for my 910 B4 Brutale, and wonder if the 200/50/17 size would fit and be legal for road use in this model, instead of the original 195/50/17 and which would be the handling benefits if any.
Many thanks in advance

Might be a tight fit with the mufflers and that extra width. I would suspect slightly slower turn in with the profile of the 200/50...but should fit.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Thumbs up ?

The /50 series tire profiles are a big radius......the front 120/70 is elliptical (or as they used to say triangular)
The problem is the rounder and wider rear tracks on ridges and grooves that the front misses
I find that very annoying......my '03 built '04 Aprilia RSVR came with a 190/50.....as soon as it was gone
A 180/55 fixed it.......
Even my pig/junk hauler R1150GS has a 180/55 on it
