    Anyone tried this make of tyre before? I know nothing about them to be honest, I just picked up a leaflet at a bikers event so just started to look around for prices,....a pair for the Trophy currently comes in at £171.83.

    No, never heard before of these tyres.
    I would not buy them.
    For example a Pirelli type is available in the normal and GT version.
    For a heavy sport bike like the TTSE you must use the GT.
    This is not a GT version? So, not recommended.

    TTSE bleu
    ex: Dnepr, Ural, BMW R1200RT :-))
    Some old Saabs, Daimler serie 3, and STR jag.

    Maxxis makes great dirt bike tires.  That is all i will use on my dirt bike.  They don't make street bike tires here in the U.S.

    I did see the correct sizes for the TTSE, but really? Can't say that I'm impressed. What I mostly see here on the road is Bridgestone, Dunlop, Michelin and Metzler. Personally, I'd try a set if the price is right. Then again, if the tire isn't right, it'd be a annoyance for two months max.

    If like me, you are only going by the pictures/info of these tyres, what's making you unimpressed?

    I guess that one or two of us need to buy/try them out on a Trophy first, to find out if the grip, handling and wear factor is any worse than the other popular/well known brands.

    I had Maxxis tyres on my Gixxer 1000 and they were very good. Obviously with the weight and size of the Trophy it may well be a totally different ball game!

    Hey Earthman, sponsor me and I'll see if they're any good.  :745:
    No, but seriously. What I mean is that I've never seen a maxxis tire on a bike and my tire guy says they're not very impressive. And he knows a thing or two about tires. He goes through a set or 8 per year himself and is the biggest tire guy in the netherlands right now.
