    I suggest you order a matching front Michelin at the same time. Keeping matched profiles will make for better behavior.

    I put Pilot Road 4 GT on the Norge and the handling was transformed. My outgoing Pirelli Angel looked far worse than your Demon.

    The Pirelli in front is probably about half-life, and I'm going to run it a while longer. I'll replace it in the spring with a matching Michelin....unless I decide at the last minute to go with Avons, front and back.

    Can't disagree, but I have a Demon on the front and Michelin on the rear of my V7ii and have run the bike hard through the canyons with no issues. I would not mismatch with the radials, though.

    Revzilla just got the proper rear size in stock! Front still out of stock... but things are moving :)

    Edit: to be clear, I'm getting it through Todd. Just excited that this means things are getting stateside

    Michelin’s are tough. I can attest to it. Just pulled it out and kept riding. All good.

    As a practical matter, as long as the specs are similar, I don't have any hesitation with mixing tire brands on either end of the bike. The tires are as good as the least of the two, and if both are trusted brands, I'll never know the difference. One tire does not 'communicate' with the other, both function independently regardless of whether they are 'matched' or not as long as OEM specs are met.
