Just wondering if the front tires are wearing normally on 2018's with the new type front end?

Thanks I was thinking the new front end should cure the fork idiosyncrasies of the older generation. My 2005 is starting show cupping on the fronts and the front end seems to flex a bit. Maybe in a year or two I might go for the new model wing.
