Like Paul, I am using a GTS rear and a Bridgestone front and have not noticed any problems.
I think, from reading the Pirelli catalogue, that they have taken the Burgman 650 sizing out of the GTS line and moved it up to the Diablo line. The Diablo line is the sport bike line and this may better reflect the 650's preformance, it really isn't a scooter.
I think that in the future you will not be able to buy the GTS, at least the size is not list under the GTS line any more.
In any case, Bridgstone, Pirelli GTS or Diablo, they are are the same type of tire construction, tubeless radials, so they should all work and play well together. You are not mixing different types of construction or sizes.
