KTM 1190 ADV STD Ultimate Tire Thread

The possibilities are pretty limited at the moment. I've only found 4-5 options at date.

120/70R-19 M/C 65Q, FRONT
170/60R-17 M/C 72Q, REAR
  1. MICHELIN PILOT ROAD 4 TRAIL -Pretty much an on road only tire
  2. ANAKEE III - A 90/10 road biased tire
  3. METZELER TOURANCE NEXT- OE on the R1200GS
  4. METZELER KAROO 3 - Maybe a 60/40 tire?
  5. CONTINENTAL TRAIL ATTACK II - OE on the 1190
Are there any others out there?

The speed index for the 1190 tires is "W".
Some of these tires you refer to above are not available in "W" speed index,but only in "V"(tourance and pilot road 4 on "V" and karoo on "T" only)
So be carefull to look for the right speed index.

Thanks for the link. I need to clarify my earlier post. I'm looking for a place to purchase them and have not found a place. So if someone knows of a place and can pass that along I would appreciate it.

All of them are spendy presently. I like the karoo 3 rear and maybe a tkc80 front......when the time comes. my problem is I go through a couple of rears and usually 1 front a year.

Agreed.
Fronts are reasonable $$$
Rears seem stupid $$$- $225 or more to burn it off in 5k ouch.

i have them on, after 8000km reat tire is near the end and front can do the twice. They are a bit harder than the conti and have poor feedback but no bad surprise. they stick like the ct2 on rain or gravel but you never know if u can put more lean angle or not.

Thinking of trying my hand at using a tire groover on a Shinko 009 Raven. Saw it done once already and the report was the tire performed well. Of course would need to tone the speeds down but I just might dink with it to just see.
