Metzeler Karoo 3 Tires 4.3 5 53 53
Amazing tire for the KTM 690 I've put about 2500 miles on these now, and continue to love them to death. The rear is just starting to show some wear. Works fantastic for twisties, highway, and challenging off-road. Truly the best do-it-all tire I've tried so far! I'd previously run MT21s, and although they were perfectly comfortable in the dirt, I would feel them slip and slide in the twisties, and wander at high speeds. The Karoo's seem to handle everything with perfect aplomb. I'm pretty sure I will be buying this tire as long as I ride the 690. April 16, 2016
Fantastic tire This tire was pretty easy to install was real slick at first, but after breaking in awhile these things are STUCK excellent traction and an aggressive tread pattern. Really like these tires! March 2, 2016
Great tire for the right situation. Purchased a set of Karoos for my '12 Triumph Tiger XC. I do 80% pavement, 18% dirt and two tracks, 2% more gnarly two-tracks/single tracks. Exactly 5700 miles on the set and am replacing both with a set of Tourance Nexts. The front probably has around 3000 miles to go...I could probably squeeze 1000 more on the back. The good - these tires rock on dirt roads and easy fire trails. I have done several long trips, the most memorable running the Apache trail in AZ. We went past Tortilla Flats and did the trail to Globe. I felt so confident in the grip we were getting some real nice speeds on some of the tougher sections. On the pavement they gripped well and did equally as well in the rain. The bad - the more they wore down, the louder and buzzier they became. If you have an adv bike but have buddies who you travel with on sport tourers, you will not feel confident running these at higher speeds. Above 85 I would not go with these shoes and a loaded bike...so I got left behind quite a bit. Use the Metzler comparisons tool on their website...I would say these are a great 50/50 tire versus 70/30. Given the type of riding I do i think the Tourances will be a better fit. I will still be buying a new rear Karoo since my front still has some miles as i will swap them out for a few dirt trips i have planned. The ugly - no ugly to report. January 31, 2016
not bad for the price I'm only at 1500 miles and my back tire is getting close to needing a replacement, probably another 500miles, but for 100$ cant complain. I also have been doing a ton of whoolies, so that probably doesn't help. 140/80-18 on a 690 endro r @26psi November 12, 2015
Front only - great street tire and good on gravel too I have about 4K miles on this now. Mostly pavement, where it performs admirably - not as glued to the road as the TA2 that came on my 1190 non-R, but I don't have trouble keeping up with my buddies on street tires. Whenever an un-paved sideroad beckons, this tire gives WAY more confidence than the TA2 (no surprise given the more open tread). Makes checking out fire roads and service roads much more fun. There is a little bumpiness to the ride from the open tread, but I've ridden many 200+ mile days without it being a bother. I can feel the tread under braking, but again it's not a problem, just different than a street tire. Would definitely go with this front tire again. Right now it's paired with a TKC70 rear and I'm very happy with the combination for ripping around mountain roads and occasionally exploring where the pavement ends. July 30, 2015
Great tire, good price They're a little buzzy at freeway speeds, bit that stops after a few hundred miles. Not the best mud tire, but competent. Sand, so-so. Gravel, dirt, and rocks, awesome. Plus they just look mean. I'd call them more like 60% street rather than a 50/50 tire. July 15, 2015
Second back tire, I like them Not much different on pavement for sound as it is almost not noticeable. The back tire lasted about 3K miles and the front looks like it will last through my second back tire. They skid easily when I had some deer jump out in front of me on blacktop but handled it well and avoided the collision. I really like these on dirt as I did the Adventure Riders Int. course in Green Mountains of Vermont in May. I was down to the wear lines on the tread and they still performed remarkably in the rough terrain and even sand areas. I really like that they are great off road and quite unnoticeable on pavement.

Lasted longer than I thought it would! Just ordered a replacement rear for my Tiger 800. So far, I've put over 6k miles on the first rear for the bike and I have absolutely no complaints. The tip-in did take a little getting used to, and it took a couple of hundred miles to even out a bit, but for me, the tire is a great road tire and suitable for the light off-road I will run it on (~20% gravel, dirt, grass, a little mud and sand). Rain performance has never left me wanting, and I've been out in a few deluges. My one concern was longevity vs. price, but 6k miles is enough, though it's not gone yet and I will probably run it for another 1-2k before replacing it. June 8, 2015
