What kind of Japanese bikes you're refering to? The sports bikes? I guess you know Japanese motorcycle makers offer models of every segment, so singling out a motorcycle based on the nationality of its brand becomes quite hard to justify.

You also don't need to corner much on a straight road.
Reminds me the day some people resorted to VW Beetle tires on the rear wheel of Honda CB 400 and 450 twins in my country, a quite common practice at least until roughly 20 years ago. My father often mentions the usage of Jeep CJ tires on some motorcycles when he was single.
