    Hello,

    Now there are Pirelli Scorpion Rally 17" and 19" for our 1200GS/GSA. (front:110/80-R19; rear:150/70-R17)
    Have you tested this tire on the 1200GS/GSA?
    If yes, how are doing kilometers with these tires (front and rear)?

    Thank You.

    Nobody has tested these tires on 1200 GSA?
    I want to know how many miles you can do with these tires because I will be a Rally Raid.
    Thank you.

    PS: I already tested Karoo and TKC80, but the front tire is not good.
    The front tire Pirelli Scorpion Rally really looks like a tire as the FIM enduro bikes.

    Any news on these tyres, i also am very keen to see how the front fares.
    may be the perfect 19" front tyre for sand.

    There are a few reviews on Motorcycle Superstore from some KTM guys. Both said they're just as good as Dunlop D606's - that means nothing to me, but might for you. At $240 for a pair, they're priced where the Kenda's should be.

    Can i ask you supply a quick out of 10 rating for what you currently rank some front / rear tyres as so we can understand your results.

    performance in sand is what i am most interested in for the front.

    Reception tires Pirelli Scorpion Rally for my 1200GSA (photo below)
    I thought that was the front tire as the FIM Enduro, but it is very similar to Karoo or TKC80.

    Sonofabitch. That rear looks like a sandpaddle! I'll be watching.

    I'm confused, these tires all look like rears, and neither match the photo by the OP. Are these Pirelli's too?

    Har-har.

    O.K.. Somebody find me a rear to buy here in the states. I'm game for another Texas test, that is, I'm ready if you (BigDave) and your tire machine are ready. :D

    Well, that depends. I can estimate the mileage riding exclusively on 1-3" sand at a couple thousand miles at least. Riding the Big Ugly with my mad sand skillz , on sand 6"-8" deep or deeper , I'd estimate about 100 yards. Or the first corner, uphill or downhill. Whichever comes first. :D
