Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire Videos

Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire

A true "50/50" dual sport tire, the Heidenau K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well.

The "chevron" style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates. This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction. A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish.

  • TL = Tubeless
  • TT = Tube Type Tire

Note: The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size. 170/60B17 has a wider flat center tread as depicted in the 2nd image.

So many good reviews on this tire that I felt it would be the best choice for me. But time and miles will only tell if this is the right tire for me. I think I will do a YouTube review of the tire for every 1000 miles I put on the tire. Might take a year to get 10000 miles but it could be a very helpful video for other bikers.

For a combination of good off-road ability and longer wear than the Conti TKC 80's. And they gave me both!

I read some good reviews on these tires so I had to find out if people were really getting 8K & 9K miles out of them.

I'm getting great mileage out of these on my 2015 GSA. Very pleased with their traction off road as well. Haven't used them in much mud but they do great on the dusty trails here in SoCal.
JEREMY E on Jun 9, 2017
Based on the previous positive experience. The tire lasted >20K miles before swapping it with a TKC 70 which only lasted ~13K miles

Lasts longer than TKC 80. Last two lasted about 6000 miles before they were run down. Much better feel on the road, less smushy, better traction. More umpf.

This is my forth set of Heidenau tires. They are great both on and off road and they wear like iron.

Just wondering when Revzilla will be getting the new K60 scout tires for the 2015 GSA Liquid Cooled Bike. Sizes 120-70-R19 and 170-60-R17? Thank you Steve
A shopper on Oct 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a 2016 BMW R1200 GSA LC - I've bought a few tires from Revzilla. I have 12,000 on this front tire and the BMW tech said he's never seen a tire look so good and have this many miles. I replaced my rear tire at 6K since I had a few punctures in it from nails and staples. The new one I have 7K on it and it's superb condition.

Tires purchased:
170/60-17 72T TL
120/70-19 60T TL
Hi, I am traveling to chile and Argentina taking my Super tenere. I have never been there, I did some research it looks like the roads i am going to take are all paved. However, you never know should i take a 90-10 or 50/50?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A year ago my friend and I rode KTM 990's through all countries in South and Central America. We had the K60 Scout tires on our bikes. While one can do most of the trip on pavement only, if one goes all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina, there will be some gravel portions. The K60 Scout tires were excellent. I got close to 9,000 miles on the rear tire one time. The front, as with most motorcycle tires, can be switched with every other rear change. We traveled over 23,000 miles on the trip and twice changed only because it was convenient to do so with the tough logistics of getting tires and changing them during maintenance stops.
I need a rear tire for my klr650. Can I run the tube less tire on the site even though I need to put a tube in it?
Elvin R on Oct 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have used the K60 Scout tire on the front and rear of my KLR650 with tubes.

The rule of thumb I've heard is to de-rate the tire one speed rating because of the extra heat that can be caused by friction with the inner-tube. For a KLR 130/80-17 with a speed rating of T (118mph) you should ride like it's a speed rating of S (112 mph). Not a real issue with my KLR even with the 705 piston.
I use K60s now my GSA1200, perfect results with a zillion miles:). MY R100/7 I see tires are made in correct size in the same K60! Ive had this R100'78 since new and would love putting a DS tire on it. I'm assuming the 110/80-18rear and 100/90-19front K60s will work just fine on the old bike? These are the correct sizes on the bike now, but street tires. YOU see any issues? I'm gonna order em:).
A shopper on May 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: With the stiffer sidewall the ride will be a little more firm than stock street tires, and you already know about the noise level if you have them on your GS.
I'm looking for a tire to get me to Alaska and back on my Vstrom. I hear this is a good tire for the 8,000+ miles of asphalt I will be riding, but wanted to hear more about riding on very wet roads or the mud that may be on the Dalton or the Top of the World highway or on other gravel/dirt roads. How does it handle on non-dry roads? Thanks!
Jeff K on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The tires have a lot of grip in the turns and good smooth ride on long highway runs with very little nose. I ride a Yamaha Super Tender XT1200Z. I believe the tire tread for larger CC bike is different then the smaller CC bikes. If you have The 1000CC you will most likely use the same tire I have. The tire has a solid band down the center to handle the big bikes power. The grip on dirt roads is very good but when it's wet muddy road in can get a little squirrely. They are 50/50 and very good at it but they are not TKC80. It's a very hard decision to pick a tire the does both road and dirt in one tire and get grip, traction and high mileage, but I think the K60 Scout hits the mark. I have every 6000 and they hardle show the wear. I don't ride hard and I'm not on the throttle like some of the young riders so I believe I will get At least 10k out of them. Hope this helps.
How do I pick the right size for a R 1200 GS? The rear rim is 4.5" x 17"; the front rim is 3" x 19". The manual indicates tire sizes: 170/60-17 (rear) and 120/70-19 (front).

Thanks.
A shopper on Nov 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can go with the rear 150/70/17. That's what I have on my GS. I see there is only a 100/90/19 for the front available. I'd ask the dealer about putting that on. Good choice on getting Heidenau tires.
Can I mix this rear tire to my Metzeler Tourance Front Tire? I'm riding BMW 650GS. Just changed the front one and want to have more off-road ability than Tourance.
Mavis T on Feb 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think the K60's are great tires. Off road you need traction on both tires. Personally I would not mix tires. I would switch out the front Tourance to a K60 and keep it for an all road trip later. I have a front Battle wing that I pulled off when I put on the K60s. If I ever do a long trip 2 up I will switch tires. IMHO the K60s are great on road and off.
Does the 130/80 rear have the central strip to increase road longevity, or is it more off-road oriented (no central strip)?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: There is no central strip, but I would not dismiss it as a viable and friendly on road tire. I have about 3500 miles of on road usage and there is no significant wear in the tire. I have them in my BMW G650GS.
How is rain/wet road performance on a GS size bike?
Curvin B on Apr 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As an everyday rider, I have had good luck in the wet with these tires. They aren't Anakee's by any stretch, and if you open it up w/ GS torque they will spin. Also, if I am going too fast while turning I can definitely feel the shoulder of the front tire trying to hang on, however in my opinion the rear tire is stable. Being an all-terrain tire, normal to slower speeds in the wet on road cornering is in order with the K60 Scout.
I know the 150/70/17 has the solid center strip, but what about the 18" version?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The product description has been updated to reflect different center tread for the size 150/70-18. The size 150/70-18 will have a less pronounced center tread stagger than the 150/70-17.
