This tire is a awesome. If you don't do any track days, but you ride hard on the streets, this tire will do the job and look good while it's doing.
Excellent traction in wet weather. I live in Florida. So it can be super hot and dry on one side of the highway and storming on the other. This tire did a excellent job on either side. Not to mention that its a sexy looking tire. If you're looking for a "high performance" STREET tire, then this should be on your short list.

This is the first tire to last and perform
The Shinko 016 Verge 2X Rear Tire is the only tire I've bought that can handle my riding style. I bought my 2002 Yamaha Road Star Warrior about 14 months ago. I had been unable to walk for over a year so you can guess that after a miracle surgery and a months of physical therapy the chance to ride again was amazing. I parked the day I bought the warrior and over the next 12 months only drove the car 8 times. The warrior was really the perfect bike for me because of its light weight. But with my very aggressive riding style I soon had a problem. Me + Light weight bike + 1700cc = Zero Life for the rear tire. 60 days after I got the bike the new tire it came with was gone. I kept switching brands without successes, tire number six only lasted 30 days. Then lucky number 7, the Shinko 016 Verge 2X Rear Tire, 200/50-17 75W 87-4099. Finley a tire that can meet me head on. it's been months and the tire shows no sign or ware. the Dual Compound and Design of the 016 Verge 2X means it doesn't go up in smoke when I leave the stop light. Instead, the tire begins to spin then grabs the pavement lifts the front 8 inches for about twenty feet. Add to that its ability to just stick when the Warrior screams through the corners and you've got the perfect tire. My wife is finely off my back. James Wheat

the full scoop
This tire delivered on what it promised. Great mileage Sept '15 - May '16. My motorcycle is the only vehicle I have and I have some pretty long commutes at least 6k miles on em. I've ridden in heavy rain and hail and the tires perform well from 3"soaked highway to hot summer twisties.

I had some problems at first because I got the verge 2x 016's as a set... I love shinko, but that front tire doesn't function well, in my opinion. There is a really steep transition from the center material (hard and rigid for high mileage) and the side material (grippy with good give) and the "fall off" is really unsettling even after hundreds of miles on it, don't get me wrong, the grip never failed, but it really makes you hesitate to push through and keep your lines tight.
I solved this problem, however, by putting the Apex 010 on the front, resolved all of the issues. Not sure if I can compare the mileage between the front tires, but I really don't care: it's the way to go for sure!

So to be clear, the verge 2x 016 REAR TIRE gets 5 STARS!
Skip the verge 2x 016 FRONT TIRE and get the Apex 010 instead and you're golden... and those PRICES!!!

Does what it says....
This has been a great value in a tire. It performs just as it says. It is currently mounted on a 2012 Triumph Thunderbird Storm. For the price I don't think it can be beat.

Another great tire from Shinko
I bought these to replace the stock tires from 2008 on a used bike I just bought. I've run Shinko tires on other bikes in the past and have always been happy with them, I also have recommended them to friends who have ran Shinkos and liked them as well.

So when I was looking for new tires for my bike I was happy to see this new tire from Shinko that was exactly what I was looking for. I like to ride most of the year and I need a tire that will perform well in all conditions and will give decent mileage as commuting can be hard on a soft tire.

I've only got a few miles in dry conditions so far but the tires felt very good... Of course going from worn out tires to new tires should feel much improved. I have no doubt that these will be a fine tire for me though. The rubber feels soft but durable, and the tread is deep. The extra siping should help in the wet and improve wear. And as an added bonus I think these are some of the best looking dual compound tires out there, they definitely match the look of my bike.

One thing I noticed is that the profile of the rear tire does seem pretty aggressive. My bike has a 6" rear wheel, but I'm still running a 180/55-17. The stock tire in that size was kinda stretched out on the rim and had a flatter profile than the Shinko. The Shinko looks slightly smaller but has a little steeper angle on the sides of the tread. I'm very happy with it.

With just a short ride around town I had worn the tires to within half an inch on the front and rear. I never get that close to the edge on the front but I was feeling quite confident on these tires and the little rubber nubs aren't even worn off yet!

Much better than expected
I installed these tires on my FZ1 before heading to the Sturgis Rally so that I did not waste the Michelin PR3's on a mostly interstate ride. These held up really well for 5000 to 6000 miles in 10 days. The center did have a flat center on the front and rear after all of the Interstate riding. However, these seem to be a rather soft compound so a couple of day rides around the Northeast on some twisty roads almost have them rounded out again. I should get another 2000 or so miles out of them. Can't beat it for a pair of dual compound tires under $200.

Better than my expectations
I have never wrote a review for a tire but I thought I should... I put on a set of Shinko Verge 2x on my Bandit 1200 for a trip to Colorado. This was end of Oct. so temps ranged from 35-65 degrees. The reason why I threw these on was because of the cheap price and the amount of miles I'd be traveling to get out there...

I have mixed feelings about this tire...I came from Angel GT's, and was looking for a cheap tire to get me through the trip that had some grip. The first time I leaned the bike over to use the entire side wall was on the first turn in the Black Hills SD, and it was super sketchy... after some miles using the side walls, things improved and the tire grips. The tire handles sweepers just fine... and tight mountain corners well.. but I would not drag hard parts on it like I usually do with the Angel GT's. I think it is because of the different front profile though. I have always wanted to trya running a sporty Shinko front with a sport touring rear.. The bike feels like it is not very stable when leaning in but all of a sudden grips. Tread life seems decent... I like the tread pattern but am surprised how big the tread grooves are. I think if Shinko made the profile a little more triangular instead of a rounder tire it would be sweet.

I think the tire works great on sport touring bikes.. you can ride aggressive on it but I would not put it on my super sport or my standard sport bike. Every time I consider changing tires... I see the price of Shinko and how it has handled everything I've thrown at it so far... so I'd get it.

I own a fjr 1300 Yamaha. I rode my bike in 50-90 degrees for 5800 miles before chords began to show. First 4 thousand miles were good. It all went downhill from there. And yes I had proper air pressure.

Great tire for the price
Used this tire on an FZ1 with a 175 pound rider, got great wear from the tire, better than what you would expect from a tire at this price point.

Put this tire on a BMW R1200RT, riding two up. Did not get the tire wear we were hoping for. after 2K you can tell this tire is not going to make the 4K mark. overall you get what you pay for but the only thing this tire is lacking is big bike two up longevity. All the other points this tire is on the mark with the best $200+ tires out on the market.
