Am 300 miles into Big Block front tire test on My KTM
(Picture tire was new, with worn Scorpion for block comparison)


Findings so far (using standard Scorpion MT90 for comparison)

Good
In sand and soft dirt
lean angles on road in dry
Metal roads turning
Price

Ok
In wet
Metal roads heavy braking (not super stable at over 90mph)
Value for money (may have a highish wear rate)

Poor
Upright heavy braking in dry (can lock at will below 50mph)
General balance and vibration (mirrors now shake a bit)
Wear, as am already burring back edges (though I think that due to the extreme brake tests and the occasional wheelie )

Am undecided at the moment as have a deal with bike shop that I can swap with cash difference for TKC80 if not happy (Shop asked me to evaluate tire on a big adventure bike so they can advise customers correctly)

So we shall see

My quess is this tire would out preform TKC80 apart from in the Poor List mentioned, time will tell
