Shinko 011 Verge Rear Tires
Fitted on a MY2008 Ducati 848,
- quite soft compound (despite marked as a sport touring tire), - it gets heated up fast in city commuting (which gives some extra confidence to the rider)
- showed a stable behavior at highway speeds ( @ 250 km/hr)
- lasted one full day in track (56 laps / intermediate group)
great tires at an affordable price tag.. totally recommended

Great, reliable grip
These are a step down from my Michelin power pilot road 3s, but If you're on a budget, these will give you by far the best bang for your buck. These single compound tires nicely grip the roads through corners, I rubbed off the chicken strips in just a couple of days with them. I think my next set of tires will be the dual compound verge 2x shinkos.

Product has insane grip
Tire is excellent for an aggresive day to day riding, dragstrip, and track days. Ive been riding on this tire for 2 months now and i ride everyday. I just started flattening out.

Like the front tire I am happy with this purchase. Better than oem handling. Should last. I only have about 100 miles on it but it is fine.

Great sticky tire...can't beat the price either
initially bought this tire because of the price and the guy at the tire store recommended it...I am definitely impressed...daily commute, drag strip, and twisties. I haven't been easy on it but its holding up good....not the greatest in a torrential downpour but its a great tire overall...definitely worth a shot

Best tire you will buy.
I have tried high end tires from every brand on my sport bikes except for Shinko because of the horror stories I'm sure you have heard from years ago. Let me say that since then Shinko has completely turned around with this tire. The grip is absolutely the stickiest I have found using every inch of the rubber from edge to edge. I commute on it but my travel takes me on twisting mountain roads every day to drag the pegs on my SV-650S, with already 700 miles and no sign of any wear. For the price, give Shinko a shot. You will not be disappointed.

Price, value, performance ... excellent!
This will be all my future tires for my motorcycles. The price is excellent as is the tread design and performance.

You won't regret it.
First: Revzilla was awesome price matching for me ,it wasn't much difference but I chose to support them since they deserve it. I hope yo do the same.
The tires, I have a front and rear on my Kawi 650r. I had the stock Bridgestones before. From what everyone has said about Shinko they are hit or miss. This tire hits though. I broke them in "easy" for about 100 miles. Then I pushed them...not one slip. I have them well ridden but not "scrubbed" in hard. I know the other models by Shinko were OK, read around on these. It will be hard to not buy these again for the price and quality. They may not be the typical 2 compound tires but for what I have read on traction, tread life and atability...it could be one of the best buys.
I will update with miles and wet traction when I can or feel it will be fair.
