New Michelin Anakee Wild Tire

Tracked down some more pics... looks the stuff but only comes in these sizes:

"Available in April, in one dimension (front: 120/70 R 19 Rear: 170/60 R 17), the Anakee Wild is a version of clinging Anakee 3. This tire should equip the imminent OE BMW R1200GS Adventure liquid cooling..."

Low profile tire on a very heavy bike riding on rocky terrain, Looks like were going to be seeing plenty of tweaked rims on the new GS.

Tried the k60's and this year just got a new set of Mitas e07... Great to have more choices of 50/50 tires

Next year... Michelin Wild or the new Karoo? Not sure yet!

Yea why the f is it a 170 profile? Is that what the new GS takes? They went in the wrong direction there, I'd like to have seen a 140/18 and 21" front at least as optional.

The new Ducati Multistrada is a 170 I think and the new BMW and KTM so its likely made for the masses. Might be good might not.

The new Karoo looks pretty nice but I just put on my first TKC's and they are awesome... so hope they don't change.

KTM yes, MS no.

Seems to be the new trend for the mega adventures (MS is not really that).

I don't see why not. TKCs can go well over 3k and they are bias. These are radials and will have a bit larger contact patch so I don't see why they wouldn't.

I wonder about their speed rating.

TKC-80 have very low speed rating, Karoo 3 (coming soon) are said to have a more comfortable speed rating.

The rear TKC on my DR650 isn't going to make 3K.
