Using the diablo Rossi II for a week now and they are brand-new with great stability excellent grip on wet..(here in Greece it rains a lot) also delivers a tons of confidence while cornering!

why you even considering using an 120mm?

I think because they will be more suited to the odd gravel road excursion. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for a suitable dual-purpose tyre too for when I get the bike down to France next year - lots of forest roads ripe for exploring.

Seen the Avon Distanzia's and Pirelli MT60 (as fitted to the Ducati Scrambler) but all of them only go down to a 120 at the front.

If you look at Revzilla's dual sport tire offerings, the tires are categorized according to dirt-street bias -ie. 40-60, 50-50, or 60-40.

Seems to be difficult to get a 110-sized dual sport in a decent road/dirt tread, ie, non-knobby. I think a 120 will be ok, contact patch at center should be about 5 mm larger give or take.
