Running a 110/80/19 and 150/70/17 combo, I’ve used the K60 and E07, neither to maximum life (K60 got 10776km and more to go, but not worth re-fitting at a later date) and the E07 I’ve only done 3750km so far. The K60 has a stiffer tougher carcass than the E07, so while it handles airing down better, I didn’t like it’s sealed road wet weather grip (to the point of being scary). The K60 would likely get a longer life, but I’d trade some of that for better grip. So for me, so far anyway, E07 better than K60.
