Front: V shaped. The hard center has stood up but the softer edges have worn faster.

I had this V shape on Continental Conti Attack and Michelin Pilot Power 2ct, The last tyre, MIchelin Pilot pure had a better "round shape" . Seems a more progressive compound
I'll see the OEM Metzeler M3 performance, in Fiona

It sounds like your observations are the reverse of mine where you get a centre flat band from high miles where I find my front is wearing quickly off the centre band i.e. the first softer compound. The rear is wearing a bit more evenly (slightly flat centre, I guess from use of the right wrist) but the front is starting to get V shaped which makes the bike tip quickly at low speed giving the impression it wants to fall over. It is a heavy bike and puts quite a load through the front and some wear is expected when taking to the twisties. It's just the combination of wear I experience that puzzles me. Is it my style of riding or the design of tyres that produces this pattern of wear (probably both)? Is it a typical wear pattern and if so the tyre manufactures need to design a better tyre/compound combination to help.
Just trying to sound out and see if others get the same wear be it on a K12, K13 or K16 in their various models.
