i never said that. i just pointed out how in the 130-17" size, mefo explorers are $150 while other popular ones are $50 range. my point was hopefully seeing the E07 in 130-17" for around $100 range. I can tell that your E07 rear is your best tire for the ADV market. The 2 most important sizes are
-130-17" (tube)
-150-17" (tubeless)
this covers 75% of ADV bikes used in the US.
I'd suggest there are a lot of riders who would be interested in 18" rears

What bike has a 130/17?
