On my OEM tires the front and rear wore out at about the same rate. With all other tires the rear wears out first with the front being about two thirds worn.
It does seem to me that this bike wears the front tires a bit faster than other bikes I have owned. Could be something to do with the weight distribution but during aggressive riding it does seem to push the front pretty hard on corner entry. I try to get the throttle cracked open as soon as possible after tipping into the corner and get the weight shifted toward the rear a bit so the front does not squirm.
I am currently at 6500kms on the Q3+ and can probably get another 2000 out of them. So, that means they are lasting 67% longer than the Q3's. Take that in to consideration when you realize they charge more for the Q3+ than the Q3
