Go with 180/55 you'll never see a difference.. if anything the sharper profile on the Michelin will make it turn easier

None of the major tire manufacturers offer a street tire in a 180/60-17. What you have is a 180/55-17, which is the proper size tire for your motorcycle. Most shops in town will have that tire in stock.
