Don't let the low price fool you into thinking this tire is junk. After installation and a few short trips, I did a 9 hour trip to the coast. This tire handles extremely well around turns, high speed, in town, and sticks to the pavement. Though I'm not to fond of the sporty tread on my retro style '07 Bonneville, it's literally a small price to pay for comfort on the road. I would recommend these to anyone.
This is my second set of these tires, as a whole. I feel they are amazing tires for the money, considering they arent race tires. but I dont ride like a racer, so I really dont care about that, they're affordable, good tires and handle well, plus from what I can feel, they sure do make my old Interceptor handle well.
I havent worn them out yet, when I do I'll have to re-review them and see how many miles I get. seeing as they're a mid to hard compound, I dont doubt I'll have something like 7-10k miles from a set.
The OEM Bridgestone Battlax 110/70-17 on my Kawasaki Ninja had begun to cup after 9500 miles and the sidewalls were showing signs of rubber degradation, so I ordered up this tire from Duro as a replacement. With OEM tires running at nearly double the price as this one, I was concerned about the quality, but I’ve been very pleased so far. Feel from the front end is crisp and grip feels good on a variety of paved surfaces. It feels softer over small road imperfections than the original tire as well. If you’re looking for great value and quality in a tire, look no further.
It was finally time to replace the original OEM tires on my Kawasaki Ninja 250, so I decided to give this set from Duro ( I purchased the front as well) a try. I was a little concerned when I pulled the tire from the box and noticed that the arch across the tread was flatter than I was expecting, but everything looked great once the tire was mounted and inflated to spec. The original tire was a 130 section width, but this 140 section fills the space in the swingarm better and looks purposeful. I’ve only had the tires on for a couple weeks, so I can’t attest to the durability at this point, but overall I’m pleased with them so far. I was able to get 9500 miles on the OEM tires, so I’d be thrilled to get that on these as well. With tires from more well-known manufacturers selling for a significant amount more than the Duro, it’s hard not to like the value statement here. Great tire at a great price.
I had buyers regret before these tires even arrived, thinking myself a fool for skimping on something so important to safety as motorcycle tires. I didn't even want to put them on when I opened the box, because I assumed there was no way they could be as good as the Michelin Macadams I had been paying top dollar for. I ended up mounting them despite my reservations and have since been blow away by how well they hug the road - better or at the very least equal to the three sets of Macadams I had used prior!
These are my second set of these tires. in my opinion, for a bias ply sport tire, these handle well, stick great, and went on way easier than I'd expected.
I paid $140 for the set roughly, got them 3 days later, and have been riding them ever since. for my budget, they're quite the nice tire, and I fully expect a good deal of happy miles of them. likely I'll see around 7000 to 10k from the set, which wouldnt surprise me. if I even get 4000 from them, I've gotten my money's worth.
