Im wanting a chunky front tyre and just been on the Pirelli website and they sell a 120/70 r18 for the front, do you think this would handle ok on the icon?
Sorry only just seen these answers! I love the mt60s but would like something a bit more chunky but don't really want to hurt the handling too much as I too love the current handling.I think it depends on what expectation, for what type of driving. Generally speaking, the more dirt oriented, the worse on the road. I love my scrambler for really decent road handling, and the "meh" handling off road.
Yes been looking at the Avon and they do look good and have a really good write up.Look at the Avon Trail Rider---i put one on my Icon and lit looks good and handles better. The 110X18 front tire they show is tube type, but they have a tubless in the same size only call it a rear tire. Just turn the mounting arrow around and it works fine---just ask the ouside soles of my boots if they stick!
