The current projection for the new K60 Scout 170/60-17 and 120/70-19 is February 2014.
Well now....I will have to call and see if I can pre-order a set. Is the front tire any good or is it better to just go TKC80 front?

Let us know what you find out.

I should probably wait until my bike actually arrives before I buy anymore farkles!


I didn't like the 21" K60 Scout on the 800XC. Seemed a bit hard for good grip on pavement and not aggressive enough off. I will mostly go with the TKC. They just seem to cause a severe vacuum in the seat every time I entered a corner a bit to hot. Maybe the wider 120/70-19 will inspire confidence.

Kag,
Did you get a set of TKC80's pre-ordered?

Reply I got from the company

David -
Heidenau says we should have them soon.
I would think we should get our first shipment of the new sizes within a month or two.
Thanks, Mark

Follow-up

I emailed Mark at MVI and got this response:

Thanks for contacting us. The short answer is we expect to have them soon.

We are still in the final US government DOT certification for the KTM 1190 tire sizes. I expect us to have them in the next 6 weeks or so.

Several folks have placed a pre-order with us so I know how many to order. Let me know if you would like to be added to the wait list.
So still a little ways out. Damn, I was hoping to have them by early April.

Mitas E-08

Has anyone used the Mitas E-07, 08, or o9, Dakar’s.
They have them in 1190 sizes, and the tread patterns look
Good.
They are the ones with the yellow strip off on one side.
I noticed in the Chris Birch Video, They seemed to be working for him?

Do they hold up?
This is a site where they sell them in Canada, and ship free to the US.

TD,
I wish Mitas made a tire to fit..... But as this thread title implies, we are looking for tires that fit the Std, not the R.

That could get spendy

Holding out for the K60 in the correct size for the rear and putting a TKC80 on the front

Looks promising:
