    Sales rep. Is saying April for the us market. There is a lot of excitement for these tires. As crazy as it sounds i have taken two preorders. They are definitely on the high end of the price scale though.


    Edit: suppliers website now says end of this month. Keep in mind these dates continually change.

    Certainly tempted to go with them next on my GSA - TKCs don't last long enough if you're commuting, Tourances get pretty slippy, pretty quickly in mud. These could be a reasonable compromise.

    I also have a set on pre-order, looking forward to seeing if they will deliver the claimed mileage life and still grip on mud/sand road surfaces.

    The rear is within a few dollars of the TKC at Motorcycle Superstore. But if I read it right the front is 25 or so more than a TKC......wonder why the price difference on the front?

    That's about what we sell them for at the dealership. The MSRP on them is ridiculously expensive.

    Well, I have 2/3 of an Anakee left and a new TKC rear. That will eat up the TKC front easily. All depends on whether I get to go to Mexico. Somebody will probably beat me to this one.

    $365 to $380 per pair of these via internet order? And I thought $287 for a pair of TKC80s was bad!

    Unless these things stick like glue on asphalt, are excellent in mud and gravel and last for 20,000 miles I think I'll pass.
