hopefully march/april

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.
