Immediate improvement in handleing.
I gave it 5* for tread life and wet traction, but I cannot really say anything about these 2 areas as I have not had them on long enough.
Shipping was a little longer than I expected.
I have a 97 Kawasaki Concours and itMy does respond more quickly with this tire on the front. (replaced Avon)

Great bang for you buck
I'm at 9000+ miles on the front of the set of Shinko Verge tires on my XR1200, which is a beast of a bike that eats through tires. I definitely expect to get at least another 6k miles out of the tires. It's hard to beat Shinko tires for value.

Great tire for the cost.
Put Shinko 011 Verge Tires on front and back. First time using Shinko and no regrets. Front tire is shaped a little differently so took a few corners to adjust to but found that they stick like glue. Found these tires to be really smooth and well handling. If all continues to go well I will definitely replace them with same tires. Really happy with the Shinko 011 Verge Tires.

Pleasantly Surprised with these Tires
You can't beat the price on these tires anywhere! Which was why i decided to give them a shot. & i'm glad i did. I don't have anything bad to say about them at all, the tread life has been a bit better than expected(so far) but i only have about +3k on this set & they still look great. But eye-balling tread isn't very accurate.
As far as traction goes, I ride in Ideal weather along with heavy Rain & have not been in a situation where i have felt that i had to ease up on my riding due to the traction or lack of with these tires. Felt very comfortable in all riding conditions!. If the tread life continues as I hope, this will be my tire from here on out.

Not Bad at All!
Using this on a 2012 Concours and it has better turn in then the stock oem tire. Great bargain tire. I'm a daily commuter so the tire sees mostly highway or city traffic. It handles both without a problem and after 4,000 miles it still looks good.

Good tire for the money
I heard that these tires had knife like handling and compared to my old set I have to agree. The bikes is defiantly eager to turn, but it feels a little to willing at times. I haven't had any traction issues so far and I don't expect to, that being said I haven't really ridden in a good downpour yet. I have to imagine the tread life will be good, but I haven't had them long enough to say. This is a good tire, if you compare it to a high end sport touring tire it will probably fall short, but for the money it's hard to beat.

Very good tire affordable price.
I put this tire on my ZG1000 Concours a little less than a year ago. I was truly impressed by how much quieter the Shinko Verge is compared to the Metzler I replaced. The steering instantly seemed more responsive. Most of my riding is commuting but I do get out on the mountain roads on a pretty regular basis. The Shinko tires have given me excellent service. They grip well at speed and I'm very satisfied with their performance in a variety of riding conditions including heavy rain.I have about 8000 miles on these ties and the tread is wearing down but still have a little life left.
For the money I don't believe you can get a better tire.
