Default Tyre width advice needed

How much difference will it make fitting a 120/70/17 to the front of my curvy as opposed to a 120/60/17? Slower to turn in I'm guessing.

Yes a 120/70/17 would have much better turn it, tends to “fall” much easier. I have done some reading on this forum and others and most swap the 120/60 for the 120/70 depending on their riding style.

Hope this helps.
