Default High Performance 19" Tires

So far I can only find Cruiser, Touring, or Sport/Touring tires for a 19" rim. I am looking for Supersport or Sport tires for the 19'' front wheel. I did find the Avon Venom but that still is a 25 year old design. Does anyone know of any high performance tires that will fit a 19 inch front wheel?

I wasn't aware that the Venom was an old design..... Couple guys here run them and really like them. Dunlop has a special version of the D207ZR that's used on the VROD that you might look into.....

Water Boys run 120's and have wider rims than a Sportster. You might look at these,
