E-10 pricing...

I noticed that Mitas came out with a big bike tire...the E-10. I also noticed that the E-10 dakar is being sold for $189CD (holy shit!) while the E-09 dakar is being sold for $129CD and are flying off the shelf. $60 difference? I'm trying to understand this, because I don't like speculating.

We ran them on a R1200 and F650/800 (twin) on the rear. Got about 3500 miles out them. We might have sqeeked another 1K miles, but that still wouldn't have got us home. So, I would say very unlikely to get 10K.

For comparision, we were on a group trip and a buddy had a TKC on his R1200. I would say it sounds like the E-10 had a smidge more thread, but still all were end of life.

That was posted in March 2012.

Since then, nothing.

Good work, Mitas people all......

Yah this has become absolutely ridiculous.

I just re-shoed my bikes. Wanted to go with Mitas. Would have bought Mitas. Love Mitas tires. Won't buy from an out of country distributor though. So Mitas DID not get my money.

Mitas just lost out on my purchase of 4 rears and 4 fronts. Probably wold have bought a couple more tires on top of that if I had a Mitas source to turn to in the United States.

But Mitas can't seem to figure out how to organize so their competitors are getting my money.

It's really too bad because they are the only real competition to Heidenau.

It is frustrating that with the economy being the way it is, that there are companies that you want to purchase from and can't. I would think opening up the US market would be high on anyone's list.

I really wish they would get things straight. I've told my reps from Parts and Tucker they need to pick them up, I'm not holding my breath though.

Any new US developments? Those are ideal GS tires.

If you look outside the US...Mtas kicks ass. They just produced a new tire that was used in the Romaniacs that was a hit with the Top Riders. The Guys in S Africa & Oz love the E07's on teh ADV Bikes. As for the E07 it is a great tire with longevity & traction, for the big adventure bike it can't be beat. On my Tiger XC I got 3000 miles on a TKC....so far I have almot 6k miles on the E07 with probably another 2000 miles of tread to go.
I hope we see a "Local" US distributor soon as the shippping from Canada sucks!
