I have to agree with Bill Eakins.
You are NOT selling this tire very well.
The American importer does not respond and evidently does not care if they sell tires.
We(Mr. Ed's Moto) stock and sell all the tires discussed in this thread except Mitas.
Our customers purchase tires based on availability and their budget.
Some folks buy and love Mefo tires, others buy and love Shinko.
The bottom line is "CUSTOMER SERVICE"

i have not doubt the czechs can produce a quality product.
thankyou for your info. that labor rates are higher there than i thought.
i have never heard of a skoda and since it was pointed out that ADV is 80% american users, nor have most others.

comparisons aside, what would make your thread usefull is showing closeup detail pics of your offerings as well as very detailed info on your tires. my understanding is Germans are very detailed oriented...

most of us have never heard of Mitas or know very little. the more info and visuals you can provide the better. you work at Mitas, yes?, you must have some advertising materials and pictures you've collected? as a vendor, it's kinda expected you do the leg work, collecting pictures and posting them here. i do that for my vendor thread.

you did not answer the question about the Iowa factory?

I gave you the comparison between Volkswagen and Skoda to show you that the Czechs are clearly able to produce a perfect quality

And .... by the way ... We are using Kevlar, Aramid as well... we use multi tread compound...

What if a tyre fail ? ...Can I give you a sheet of paper with some advertisement and some marketing phrases ? ...



There are a lot of pictures with worned Mitas tyres here in the advrider.... ... comparable and incomparable...

This is my favorite
This is helpfull too
.. serach for kOdiak ... for instance.

You right when you say there is a lack of general marketing activities ....

(but the establish some ... you need to listen to the "audience" first.... )

so you have tried to contact the importer to inquire about carrying Mitas at your store and had no luck? that is not good for Mitas. Sounds like Mitas Germany does not have a clue how poor there representation in the US is.

i know it took Moto Amore a bit to get up to speed as the US Heidenau distributor but from the reports i've read they turned it around: http://moto-amore.com/heidenau/index.html

you sell Mefos? i could not find them on your website.
how do you get those in the US, if you don't mind me asking?
is there a distributor or do you have to order directly shipped from germany?

when Moto Amore first started distributing Heidenau (same situation, no one in the US ever heard of Heidenau...now it is well known) they had supply issues (not ordering enough and running out too quickly with long waits between the next order) and also their communications (not returning emails & calls) was not the best. maybe they hired more people to deal with the demand as the supply is better as is the communications. there are now a dozen or so dealers in the US that you can easily order a Heidenau tire from in addition directly from Moto Amore. Heidenau had to reformulate their 150-17" & front 19" K60 to remove BPA per new German regulations and thus that tire was not available for atleast a year. Moto Amore did a good job explaining the situation and why they could not get any to import.

...the 1200 GS tire size (vstrom & super tenere also use the same time) is big business in the US with the desire to use a good 50/50 on-road/off-road long lasting rear tire. This is also true for 130-17" rear tire as alot of dual-sports use this size too. Tourances are more road oriented and TCK-80 wear out too quickly. Even though the K-60 is pricey the 150-17" still sell very well as this tire does it all...

Mitas E07 could also sell extremely well in the US if you and your distributor can pull it together.

like i've said over and over...i'm trying to help you out here.

you don't want your tire pics in you thread???
the most IMPORTANT thing you can do is post pictures.
after that technical details, otherwise your thread is useless.
http://www.sba.gov/content/marketing-101

post E07, E09 & E10 pictures from different angles.
those are the 3 tires ADV riders are interested in.
