Bargain tire with premium performance.
I ride a Suzuki Bandit 1200 every day. I'm pushing about 130 horsepower, and do about 20,000 miles a year, so I eat a lot of tires. I've tried all of the usual suspects in the premium category and I was using Pirelli Angel GT's last until I tried these. Big advantages to using the Shinko tire.

The grip feels very similar to that of the Pirelli, but these have a flatter profile, so steering feels much easier to control. The other advantage is that as the tires get near the end of life, you don't feel dangerous and wooden. As the Pirellis would cup and get near the wear bars, handling would be erratic and diminish confidence.

I finally just replaced my first Shinko front tire, which went 12,000 miles before I reached the side wear bars. The center still had tread to spare, and I probably could've squeezed another 500-1000 out of it if I hadn't been going on a trip. Far and away the most miles I've gotten out of any tire to date. The best I could hope for from a front tire previous to this was about 8k. I'm pretty hard on my tires. Will buy these until they stop making them, and considering a complete set costs as much as 1 rear Pirelli, it's really a no brainer.

You can't beat it for the price!
Now that I'm back from a 4,000 mile trip, I'm ready to review this tire. First impression: Twitchy. By which I mean that when I first pulled out of my driveway after installing it, I felt like my BMW R1200RT was going to fall over on it's side. This tire really "falls" into a turn and it took a couple weeks to get used to it. Now I know what you're thinking... I've put many new tires on my bikes and I've never had one dive into turns like this one. I usually have to put pressure on the outside bar to keep the bike from turning too tightly. Now that I have become accustomed to it, I don't even notice. Grip is very good for my 600 lb bike. I have experienced no slippage on wet or dry pavement, even when riding less than "sedately" (which is a frequent thing). After over 4,000 miles on everything from interstate to twisty roads in the Rockies to even a bit of gravel, the tire looks barely used. My one nit that I have to pick is the center groove which tends to "track" on rain grooves and catches on pavement irregularities. It hasn't upset the bike at all, but it can be disconcerting if you're not prepared for it. I will buy these again. Having said all that, I hope these tires don't get too popular... I'd hate to see the price go up!

A fantastic sport tourer tire
My XB12XT eats rear tires... 4500 miles was the max from anything. Although it gives up a little grip, most noticeably in the rain, when compared to the Angel ST's... it's providing at least 7500 miles with some left before it'll hit the wear bars. At this price, I swap front and rear for less than the price of a single Pirelli. Highly recommend these. Ride like your brains are in your helmet in the rain and you'll never find fault.

Great tires for the money
I put a set of these tires on my bmw 2014 r1200rt just before a 4000 mile trip to Montana. I'm very satisfied all around, I did a lot of mountain driving in and out of rain showers didn't have any problem. I'm not an aggressive rider but they seemed fine when I do get frisky with it. Can't tell about the life of the tires yet but they are wearing well so far.

Best Tires For The Money...
Great tires for the money. It is low in price and performs excellent. I commute a lot with some sprints here and there (even twisties), and these tires hold up really well.<br><br>They are durable and lasts long as well. I have already gone through two sets (front and rear Raven 009 tires: about 7k miles each set) - that is good because I ride a motorcycle that has a lot of torque and is known to eat up tires really quick.<br><br>Now,all of my riding buddies are using Shinko Raven 009's as well. <br><br>Only downfall is that it takes a LONG time to warm up because of the harder compound. Good for people like me who commute on highways 90% of the time, but BAD for people who want to take it out and hit the twisites or tracks right away.

Affordable and sticky
I've used these tires on my 03 zx6r and 09 ninja 650 they are very sticky and hold corners fairly well. A little on the round side I got about 9000 on the front and about 7500 for the rear. Wet traction isn't to bad.

Wow can't believe I haven't brought these tires before I'm really happy with them. I just put them on after having a set of Michelin PR4s. So far I don't miss PR4s. Only have a few hundred miles on them so it's still to early to give a complete reveiw. I saved a lot of money with these and had no issues mounting these myself. I thinks the PR4s were a bit overkill for the kind of riding I do. Great tires but the cost is high.

I'm on a budget and most of my riding is in the streets of NYC. These seem to fit the bill. Reviews were good enough to pull the trigger.

Sanders W on May 27, 2015
I ride an old (1997) VFR750. Switching from Bridgestone s20 tires which were excellent all around and gave great grip even in cold, wet conditions. s20 wore evenly and I got 5k miles out of them. I want to try a harder compound for lower price and longevity and to see if I care about having less grip. I don't corner hard enough to wear my tires out to the edge anyhow.
I'll write a review after I've used them for a while.
Vilis N on May 1, 2015
This is to replace the tire i bought almost 3 months ago. It picked up a nail so here I am replaceing it with another fine tire. Love the styling and grip it provides and also the price.

Gene M on Feb 16, 2015
After catching a nail I needed a cheap, dependable tire that could perform as my daily commuter. This tire meets those criteria and then some. I find that I am more comfortable leaning my bike into turns and trusting my tires to do their job.

All around a good purchase for a good price.
Shawn S on Nov 12, 2014
Price and to match my rear tire as well!
Corey T on Oct 13, 2014
Inexpensive, supposedly long-lasting, and rated relatively highly by other riders in their reviews on Revzilla. It has proven to be a very good tire & one that I would buy again when the time comes.
Kenneth M on Sep 10, 2014
I have had amazing luck with the rear tire i put on a couple months ago so it only makes sense to match up the front.

I have a Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Sport Touring bike. It's 509 lbs. wet, I 2 up half the time and a lot of highway riding. My question is, with a heavy bike and riders, will these tires hold up and will I be able to get at least 12,000 miles out of them? Are these tires recommended for a heavy bike?
A S on Apr 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Can't speak specifically to the durability for a liter bike with a passenger on it, but I had these tires on my previous bike (Ninja 650r) AND on my wife's SV650 and was VERY pleased with them on both applications, both in terms of dry & wet weather grip and in terms of durability/longevity. They are still on the SV and were also still on the Ninja when I got rid of it. The Ninja 650r is well over 400 lbs. wet and was my daily commuter. If they made them in the right size for my new ride (Daytona 675), I would buy them in a heartbeat. As it is, I will be getting the closely related Shinko 005s. Again, none of our bikes were over 500 lbs., but based on my experience with them, I can't see them not being able to handle the job. Hope this helps!
Which better tyre 009 or bridgestone exedra? Which can do more mileage? And moré grip? Thsnks
