Sitting at home drinking wine, and came across this thread, and thought I would share.  I had two sets of M7RR on my '17 S1000R, and had to throw on new tyres for a teack day so put on a set of Rosso IIIs (price same as M7RR but got free tickets to the WSBK @ Phillip Is earlier this year). Having now done about 4,000km  and a track day on the Rosso III, and a few track days and heaps of Km on the M7RR, my view is (1) both excellent tyres (2) the M7RR is better on wet/crappy roads (3) Rosso III better on dry and on track (4) Rosso III *seems* to tip in a bit better, but not much in it.  Short version - I would be happy with either.  Will give the new uber Michelins a go next time - change is good.

Useful thread this, I’m just about to change a set of M7’s which I like, they really inspire confidence in the wet and warm up quickly. I’m pretty sure I’ll fit the same again.

I've been happy with M7s in the past as well. However, last two sets have been dunlop Q3+ which I'm very happy with and the Q3+ tip in quicker it seems. No idea about traction in wet since haven't ridden in any down pours/wet roads in a while.
