Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire 170/60-17 M/C 72T TL
The Heidenau K60 Scout is a dual sport tire that we have ridden on our BMW F800GS, R1200GS Oil Cooled, KTM 950se, and now we have the opportunity to run it on our R1200GSW! Heidenau applied a wider version of their innovative tread design to create this tire.
The K60 is quite possibly the most well-rounded dual sport tire we've ever used. It has excellent road manners, is a beast in the dirt, and lasts much longer than anything we've ever used on large dual sport, adventure-style bikes.
Check out this video below showing Kyle's 12,000 mile review:
For a dual sport tire to make sense it has do operate very well on the road and off. We've ridden tens of thousands of miles through just about every kind of terrain and road conditions you can imagine, and the K60 Scout has never let us down. Its deep tread and unique sidewalls offer a longer mileage and more monetary savings overall.
We've found that the mileage we're able to get out of the K60 Scout far exceeds any other big bike tire. Most riders can get between 9,000 and 12,000 miles out of these tires, which is far more than any other tire on the market. This is exceptional considering it is one of the most capable extreme off-road tires! We'd estimate its capabilities can be describes as a 40-60 split with 40 being its off-road capabilities and 60 being its street capabilities. For riders who find themselves switching terrain regularly, this tire is a fantastic fit.
What makes us like this tire so much? The pairing of great handling with excellent mileage make the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tire a winner for big dual sport bikes. It employs a unique design that feature stiffer sidewalls to achieve long-lasting durability.
