A tire designed more for touring usually will have a harder compound in the center where tires wear flat from all the slabbing and traffic riding we do. Inflating the tires slightly over the bike manufacturers suggested pressure (usually the suggested pressure can be found on a sticker on the swing arm) can help reduce the tendency to flatten the middle of the tire, you might stiffen the ride up slightly and will notice a difference in handling. Usually a decrease in the effort to tip into turns is the most noticeable on a Sport Touring and I'm guessing that would be same for a Sport bike. Check with other riders of your model bike and see what pressures they are running. There are years of experience based knowledge available from the riders here so you should be able to get a pretty good idea.
