Has anyone tried a 180/60 rear on the Duke? I‘m wondering about any fiTrent issues and how it might affect turn in since it’s a slightly higher tire.

I would like to know that as well .... the only one I’ve read about is Troy from motorcycle.com that tried it with a slick on a track( on the Kramer GP2 )and he said that he could turn faster.

It WILL depend on the tyre. Variations in crown radius between marques and models make a difference. Wider can make the front "tippy" , which ime - on the road - is not a plus.
I am NOT overall a big fan of a large discrepancy between front and rear tyre width. The more the difference the less linear the cornering ime.
