Alot of ppl are under the misconception that wider tyre gives more edge grip,
It works the opposite as the rubber doesnt get enough temp to work, and on a light low powered bike this is important.
it also looses its curve in the middle that causes it to not hold a line as well.
Post a pic of a used 150 tyre taken directly from behind the tyre at axle height.
then look at how the rubber falls away on the edges.
