Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Scout delivers better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates.  This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction.  A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

Great tire for travel ... on and off road Simply amazed at how good this tire is ... you will not regret getting it!! September 15, 2014
Boom!!! Firm tire. Great for BDR!!! Just traded out my Shinko 705 front tire for this. The 705 slipped off the rim and bulged out during a 70 mph ride. Saw the tire tube when I pulled over. I have an '09 F800GS. The K60 was not easy to get on but worth the effort. Rode the WABDR section 2 with 22 psi. The "Baby heads" (I didn't name it) were smooth. The hardest section of the BDR. No grip problem. No flats. Excited for AZ and OR. I have the K60 on the rear also. Both are great. WORTH THE MONEY!!! September 8, 2014
Great road and trail tire for a large dual sport. I now have 2000 miles on these, and I settled into how best to use them on the street, as on the trail, even sand, they are fine, though I have a 470LB Triumph Tiger 800. Replacing the OEM Pirelli Scorpions, a great tire for street, but not off surface, these new tires are almost the opposite, with great grip and confidence off road on gravel especially, but mud/sand they are still a tad swooshy but controllable. The main issue is getting used to street manners these tires have. The front is slow turn it, then once leaning, a fast turn, so a few hundred miles to get sued to that dynamic, and the rear is really grippy, but does lose traction on acceleration at full throttle, or in turns with throttle on for shenanigans...controllable, but not like the OEM, which are like glue. That said, these tires are exactly what I wanted in grip and handling off surface. The only downfall for me, which is actually a good thing, is they are speed rated at 90MPH, and it has tempered my hooligan operations in the urban jungle on the highways, not that the Tiger was a dynamo over 85, but it gets there fast, though 90 MPH your RPM is 6200RPM. The other minor issue, is that the front tire at speed over 55 can get unsettled for a split second and the fork lift in rapid lane changes, compared to the OEM, you just need to keep your line all is fine. But on a country/rural road, or 70MPH, these tires after 500 mile break in are pretty smooth for the tread pattern, and actually soak up the pavement joints and bumps better... October 20, 2014
excellent tire in both performance and value Keep in mind, this is a 50/50 tire, not a STREET tire, so with that in mind, i give this tire an excellent rating! I have almost 4k miles on them and they show almost no wear. The traction is good in all types of riding. i have not ridden in a heavy rain, but light to moderate wet traction is good. Off road very acceptable. The only need for awareness is the need of testing your steering input force and braking traction on pavement. I consider both the front and rear tire an excellent value and choice. October 6, 2014
Great on and off road After having this tire over 3000+ miles I have found that it is great on and off-road. It does make the front feel lighter but I got use to very quick. On-road at first I was worried about the grip on tight turns but after a while I ended having more confidence on these tires than the Trail Wings I had before. On off-road they are great at dry conditions, I haven't try them on mud yet. August 16, 2014
Great on street and dirt These tires replaced my Dunlop TR91 Trailmax tires. The Heidenaus feel more secure on the pavement and way less squirming about on the dirt. I went for a ride today on wet city streets and they felt more grippy than my old Trailwings ever did. Plus the chunky tread looks great on my Scrambler. Highly recommended. August 15, 2014
slipery on dry pavement After reading many rave reviews of the K-60, I ordered a rear to replace the K-76 that I had wore our on my Yamaha Super Tenere. The K-60 disappointed me with its lack of traction on clean dry pavement! A smooth throttle roll on in T mode from third gear at 3,000 rpms at a modest (20 degrees maybe) lean angle would bring on the traction control light. The traction control light came just about every corner exit. I did not have this issue any of the other tires that I have run on this bike. This is by far the worst traction that I have experienced on any tire ever! After returning from the first ride, I ordered a set on Anakee 3's, which stick very well. The K-60's aggressive tread looks like it would work well off hard surface and the hard rubber and continuous center strip should give good longevity. I plan on remounting this tire for my next touring trip out west where I will need a long lasting tire for the interstate miles as well as good off hard surface traction for my camping/exploring ventures. I'm not saying that this isn't an good tire for its intended use. Just be aware that it is not a tire for even semi sporting use on twisty roads. Also for the hi price, I expected more. I won't likely be buying another. September 27, 2014
this tire last's This Heidenau K60 worked great on a 830 mile trip on twisty roads with gravel and dirt roads September 22, 2014

Michael M: Great Dual Sport tire for my KLR 650. For an aggressive tread dirt road tire they handled like a road tire on the asphalt. I can drag the foot pegs with theses tires not even trying and never a slip. Great tires and the tread life is long lasting. Jan 29, 2014

K O: Superb tire - last set of Heidenau's were good for more than 10,000 miles. Made trip from Texas to Alaska (and back) - still had enough margin on the tire to go for another 1,000 miles. I also run these on my 1200GSA and 650 KLR. Good tire - I have used in various terrain i.e. Trans America Trail, Continental Divide , White Rim ( out of Moab). Never had an issue regarding durability, grip, control, wet weather, sand,or rain. Dec 20, 2013
Eric N: 3rd set purchased. 25,000 miles total on first two sets. Absolutely awesome tires both on and off road. Very little to no hum, feels solid in dirt, gravel and wet or dry hardtop. These tires for my '12 BMW G650 GS Sertao are perfection. Nov 30, 2013
John B: A perfect choice for adventure bikes that have to spend a lot of time on the super slab to get to the back country. Nov 25, 2013
Adam B: "Rider reviews stating performance and longevity" Nov 16, 2013

Over 8000 miles and not even 50% wear. Glued to the road in any weather, including torrential rain.
A little noisy but well worth it

K R: long lasting50/50 tyres Nov 16, 2013
Andrew W: This tire has many good reviews on the forums ( adv rider & super tenere forum as well as others). I wanted a tire that is good for both on and off road with excellent wear characteristics. So after much research, I felt these to be the best choice considering the riding that I plan on doing. Nov 12, 2013
mike c: Highly rated tire by experienced adventure riders. I want an exceptional on and off road tire. They cost a little more than others but the claim of getting up to 12K miles make them both high performance and economical. I can't wait to find out ... Nov 11, 2013
Justin P: Great, durable tire that I'm using for dual sport riding. Great off road but if most of your riding is on the street I would recommend something else. Nov 9, 2013
Ralph C: Great tires I have run a pair in excess of 9000 miles and they still have more life. Pavement and dirt they seem to like either one. BMW F800GS Nov 9, 2013
HECTOR C: The best for on and off road! Oct 28, 2013
B F: These tires provided the best all-around features for my riding style. Amazing off and on- road traction! Oct 12, 2013
A I: Excellent product,great price! Oct 6, 2013
Carson S: When I purchased my 2009 BMW R1200GSA, it had the stock road tires and the dealer threw in a gently used set of Conti TKC knobbies. The stock rubber was less than I needed and the Conti knobbies were more than I needed. The Heidenau K60 Scout's are the perfect blend of off-road traction and on-road good manners for the way I ride. Oct 5, 2013
Shawn C: I bought a set of these tires for a BMW R1200GSA a few years back. I had a hard time getting the tire beads to set and ended up using some flat fix to keep them up but I found then to handle quite well riding two up on paved and gravel road adventure touring. The tires had about 6K miles and at least 50% tread left when I sold the bike. Sep 25, 2013
F R: Because they are long lasting, great tires! Sep 21, 2013
David R: Same as the rear, a bit worn. Sep 18, 2013

Barry H: Had a K-60 on the rear already & really like it. Put a D-606 on front same time as rear K-60. D-606 is toast & rear K-60 will probably last through 2 more D-606's so I said "Fuck it" & went with the K-60 on front this time. Aug 11, 2013

Sergio Enrique Z: In my opninion Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire it works very well in your BikeTriumph Tiger 800xc with the rear tire 150/70.

Good durabilidad, Grip even in the rain and estability to. Heidenau k60 is a tire 50 % on road and 50% off road.
I made a travel fron Ensenada Mexico to Canada in 11 days ( 4,500 miles) and nothing happen I mind no problem in the tires.

So I recomend this tires in any surfaces on road and off road.

Joe R: I've got the scouts on both a BMW f800 GS and a klr 650. They do well on both bikes and are great in the dirt. For the perhaps 30% of the time the bikes are on gravel and dirt they function very well. I was also surprised at how well the tires handle the various road surfaces on which I travel. They are wearing well. Great tire. Nov 7, 2013

Michael M: Yes they are tough to install but since then I have discovered a majic solution to aid the process. It is called Windex. It makes everything slippery and I believe it would reduce the time by 50% installing the tires. The front tire was the easist the rear tire was more difficult. I love tires I put them on my KLR 650.
