Just to me and me only,
I would be tempted to stick to a standard size when it comes to the Hornet 900 (919), because it really ins't the type of bike to go chasing the sportier performance with. I don't mean to upset fellow Hornet owners, but it just isn't an out of the box boy racer bike. I don't doubt that you could make a racey bike out of it, but I would look at and modify suspension or settings, front and back, way before I went to a lower profile tyre, especially on the front. From brand to brand or even model to model of the same brand, tyres can change the bikes handling immensely with the same profiles, let alone going to lower profiles on what is essentially a "street" bike.
