Yesterday I changed both tires to my scooter because rear tire was sooooo bad. I think that next tyres are Pirelli Diablo Scooter but I bought Bridgestone Battlax SC1 tyres.
After the tires replacement at first driving experience was, "WOW what a feeling". Incredibly smooth and quiet driving. Also turning to corner amazed me. Amazing stability.
Now driving capabilities are accessible like Honda engineer had planned. 
My experience about Michelin Power Pure SC tyre was little frustration because it was very noisy but grip was exellent. It is reliable tyre and worn evenly.

I'm betting you had a close call until you typed that comma

I had a Diablo the first time  (great ride but did not last long)  Then changed to a battlaxe  (traction was not good)  Then 23 years ago went Michelin and the best of all times. danceing

I use oem IRC's consistently. They wear like iron and handle fair. And by getting them from Honda they are cheaper than any tires I can mail order.  Just my two cents.

GHM, I agree with you 100% on the IRC tires. Wear great and ride smooth. But it seems like every tire I like, they discontinue.
