I think you might be right on there. Have you ridden on that tire before? Looks like it could be a good compromise between dirt and street
...last dirt tires I rode were a dunlop 4.00-18/3.00-21 combo on a '76 yamaha XT500...good vibrations
hopefully they do go with a well known Dual Sport tire. My Sport came with the Pirelli Phantom look-alikes on it....they looked cool, but were the worst tires I've ever ridden on as far as performance goes. Id hate to see the bike suck out of the box because of a tire choice.
Confirmed they come with the Pirelli MT60's. My question is about front tire replacement... besides replacing with another OEM Pirelli, what other front tire (dual sport) options are there in the less common 110/80R-18 size? I'm preferrably looking for something more aggressive
I love the Ducati scrambler concept from Ducati Thailand, sporting the scorpion series, loosing the front fender to accommodate a much taller tire on the factory 18 wheel.
Where do I find these tires!!!!
I was doing some investigating on the tires pictured above by finding a higher res image and trying to read the tires. They are Pirelli Scorpion MT21 Rallycross tires.
The front is OEM 110/80-18 size, and is a "rear" just like the TKC80 "front" tire, and can be had cheap in the US ($92 from Revzilla). Zooming in it's hard to read, but I think rear size in that pic is a 150/70-17. However, you can also get a 170/60-17 size (for $184 from HERE), which is only 1cm narrower than stock, so I think would work fine on the factory wheel for hitting the dirt.
For a US customer, this is currently cheaper than the TKC80 route, for which you can get the front for $166 shipped internationally on eBay, and the rear for $180 shipped. I don't know if they are as good of a tire or how long they last, but it's another option.
I have a 2016 Scrambler Urban Enduro which I bought in July 2016. My bike has less than 600 miles on it, always garaged and never ridden in the rain. I live in San Diego, CA. I just noticed all of my spokes have surface rust on them. I mean come on, I haven't even taken it in for the first...
My FT is approaching 3k miles now and the rear is showing signs of wear (don't get me wrong as I believe there's at least another 1k left in it) but as all my riding has been on tarmac, I am looking at ideas for a more road orientated tyre.
I really like the handling of the bike and feel that a...
Just got back from a southern California riding trip with about 1,000 miles of riding in 2.5 days. Doing winding canyon roads, minor freeway, dirt roads, paved mountain trails and even an OHV dirtbike area. I've done similar rides in southern Utah off road and didn't care for the stock icon...
Just wanted to say that they performed very well when Bikke, the show co-persenter took them fresh out on to the track at the Bike Shed Cafe Racer Cup (below).
I have since used then in the wet and they seem very nice.
They were not actually my first choice but the dealer had them in stock...
