General

What bike was used for this review? KTM 690 Enduro R

Tyre Life

Riding styleTyre lifePrice per km
General riding 15,000 km 1 cents per km
Notes: I replaced this tyre after 1200 kms so tyre life is estimated. These tyres don't encourage you to be as aggressive, so will likely last longer than their replacements (if that makes sense).

General Overview

Notes: Came with the bike new (KTM 690 Enduro R). Removed after a couple of trips through the rainbow and over the Whangamoa Hill in both wet and dry conditions. Changed out for Motoz Tractionators ASAP.

Actually great on the road. Grippy, stable.

Less good offload and a bit scary with a tendency to wobble in gravel if pushed. Deep gravel not fun at all. Crossing berms between wheel tracks on gravel just seemed to upset the bike a lot. Definitely not one to push into corners.

Score maybe slightly unfair if you are just cruising on gravel, and they are perfectly acceptable for road miles.
