Mitas Tires in stock and shipping

We received our first container of Mitas Tires that have included the dual sport line. We have imported the winter studded rubber for years, but took the plunge now with the dual sports.

http://stores.ebay.com/MOTORACE-CLOS...=p4634.c0.m322

We focused on what they had shippable, and what we knew could sell so we tried to make sets. They did not have GS-W sizes available yet, and we missed the production window on the 18" KTM rears. They do have a large supply of those now earmarked for us coming in the second container.

We are building the second box now, so its about 6-8 weeks out. We have to work around their schedule.

We are in Mass, and use UPS Ground. PM me with any questions. thx dave

Dave!
Great news on the Mitas tires.

I got to visit their booth at EICMA in Italy last fall and have been hoping for this announcement ever since.
Looking forward to riding them!

Edit to add: Do I have it right, E-10s for the rough terrain



and MC-60s for gravel and miles?

Thanks! I just ordered an E -07 rear and MC60 front for my trip to Inuvik next month. I'm hoping they last the 9000mi round trip.

I have a set of Mitas E-07's on my R1200GS and they are around 50% after over 5000 miles. Awesome tires!

Really looking forward to trying Mitas but on this first batch most of the sizes in E07, E09 and E10 are the "Dakar" type, which is their heavier/stiffer construction. I'm hoping availability in the regular (non Dakar) versions is coming soon. Thanks.

Do you have the E07 in 100/90-19? I don't see it on your eBay store.

Anyone have an opinion or link comparing the Sava MC60 to the E-09 and/or E-10's? Never heard of the MC60 before this thread. I'll be running an E-07 on the rear with it, just looking for a bit more aggressive front, that will still last the (hopefully) 8000-10,000 miles.

We will stock every size and build of the E-07. This is where the push seems to be. We will stock the other dual sports, too.

As I have said before, we have to see what they have, balancing their production schedule / existing stock and our time frame.

We are shipping about 15-20 tires a day. Thx for all the orders!
