I have used these on several smaller bikes and been happy. Recently put them on my F650GS and rode the Hatfield and McCoy trail systems for 3 days. These tires did very well. On the rocky trails they held very well and I only lost one pea sized chunk off one of the center knobs. They worked very well in the lose dirt from freshly groomed trails. On the street they are very stable. So far I'm very happy with them on my F650GS.
Fit great on my pit bike and still has great tread after 2 months of ripping around the pits at races and playing around on the pit bike track. Will be ordering more when this set wears out! Thank you Motorcycle Superstore!
Not great for enthusiast, but ok for normal riding
2,800 miles and the sides of the front are worn with little tread left! They move around too much on the road, I have little confidence in these tires with quick wear.
I have a NEW exotic sport/touring bike with all the electronics, and mid weight. I won't be using Pirelli scorpions again . I will replace with another tire!
I'm been generally impressed with the performance of this tire. Comparable to the MT 16, but without the chunking issues. Traction on wet roots is only drawback. I use to run Metzler unicross tires on my bikes, but they're not available in 19", so this is the next best thing. Thinking about re-rimming my bike to an 18" rear. Nothing hooks up like a Unicross.
I placed this tire last month on the front of my WR250R. I'm not an expert rider so I don't have very nuanced observations about the tire. But the tire seems very planted in my turns and hasn't given me any reason to dislike it. I've ridden it so far in sand, rock, and plain dirt and it rides very well. I haven't had a chance to ride it much in mud really so I can't say much about that. Doesn't fee spongy on the street when turning either. So far I'm quite pleased with the tire.
