Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2 Dual Sport Tires

The Pirelli Scorpion Trail II Tires were specifically designed to meet the versatility of the modern adventure touring motorcycle. They feature an aggressive tread pattern supported by strong technological innovations, giving good stability even at high speed, excellent traction on dirt as well as superior handling, comfort and grip in all riding conditions.

Tread Pattern:

The tread pattern of Pirelli Scorpion Trail II Tires have an aggressive look typical of an off-road tire, but that combines the greatest features of an enduro tire with those of a sport touring tire. The side grooves have been designed to ensure optimal drainage of water, while the layout and shape of the central grooves not only contribute to the drainage of water but also ensure better traction, greater stability and normal wear.

Compounds:

The entire Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tire line features a dual compound construction. Compared to its predecessor, this tire has a wider central section which contains a compound developed for high mileage without compromising cornering performance. The side compound was designed to optimize the balance between performance on dry and wet roads.

Profile:

Thanks to a shorter, wider, contact patch area, the profile helps to reduce and level the wear of the tire while maintaining consistent performance throughout its life.

Structure:

The structure that lies beneath the Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2 Tires ensures high performance, even at full load or with heavier motorcycles, making it comfortable for long trips and winding roads.

Features:

  • Increased mileage, improved wet grip with an incredible performance consistency throughout its entire life cycle
  • Innovative tread pattern combines the typical off-road style of the Pirelli Scorpion™ range with the experience directly derived from the Angel GT (Pirelli's top sport touring product)
  • Peak performance of enduro and sport touring blended into one product
  • Larger center compound stripe to guarantee enhanced cornering performance
  • Central compound developed for higher mileage and improved behavior in wet conditions
  • Side compound for optimized balance between dry and wet performance
  • High performance for heavy, fully-loaded bikes
  • Incredible versatility ensures peak performance on long, straight journeys or twisty roads with the most adverse weather conditions
  • V-rated for speeds up to 149 mph, (V)-rated for speeds to 149+ mph, W-rated for speeds up to 168 mph, (W)-rated for speeds to 168+ mph

Very pleased!
I installed a set of the new Pirelli Scorpion Trail II tires on my 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC. They replaced the OEM Tourance EXPs after 7000 miles. After one hundred miles I can say that I'm very impressed with these new Pirellis. The big Explorer now handles with a more nimble response to input. I thought I had been taking it easy until the new rubber is scuffed up a bit, but I noticed today that the chicken strips on the rear are almost gone. That's confidence inspiring as I'm able to lay the bike down in corners without any signs of traction loss.
I had originally planned on buying the Tourance NEXT tires to replace the EXPs, but Motorrad out of Germany just did their Enduro tire test of all the major brands. The Scorpion Trail IIs came out on top with a good margin over the NEXTs which were the prior winners. I can't vouch for wet grip as I haven't had the opportunity to ride in the rain yet. However Motorrad's wet track testing scored the highest ever wet test score. So I'll assume they'll work well in the rain.
They seem pretty quiet too. I rolled down a long, steep incline with the clutch pulled in. There was much less tire noise than the EXPs.
I can't judge wear yet. I'll do a follow up after a few thousand miles.

Sportbike riders couldn't keep up with my Yamaha ADV bike.
My local motorcycle shop couldn't get these so I ordered through Revzilla. Over this past weekend I went for a ride in the local SoCal canyons (Angeles Crest HWY & Angeles Forrest HWY) and hit up a few miles of gravel road. On the pavement these provided great grip and I had complete confidence taking 35 mph turns at freeway speeds. This was a group ride and I thought some sportbike riders could hang but after a few turns I was all alone. I took a gravel road shortcut to the Newcomb's Ranch restaurant and the traction good was there as well. That gravel road is pictured in this post. Overall I'm happy with these. Besides the OEM Bridgestones, I've tried the Dunlop TR91 and two sets of the Metzler Tourance NEXTs. If these last around the 10k average I had with the NEXTs they will like be reordered.

Fantastic do-it-all tires!
The Scorpion Trail II tires came stock on my 2015 Multistrada and I have to say, they are magnificent. Great wet/ dry grip, holds extreme lean angles with confidence, even manages to get decent grip on dirt/ gravel roads! So far I have around 3k miles on them with no visible signs of wear, definitely a step up from the original Scorpion Trail tires. If you are a rider who is looking for a sporty, long lasting tire that holds its own with light off-roading, this is without a doubt the tire for you.

Great dual sport (road part) tires!
Got a set of these last week and mounted them on my R1200GSA. Easy to spoon on and setting the bead was no problem. Rode 500+ miles including heavy rain and about 30 miles of loose gravel twisties. All in all I am very impressed. I came from Michelin PR4 Trails as my road tire (I am a firm believer in switching to knobbies when leaving the pavement for any length of time) which were good but I only got 6800 miles out of them before the front cupped and the rear wore out. Have used Tourance (original and Next) in the past. So far I like these the best. They are absolutely quite and smooth. Excellent grip even in heavy rain. Ok on gravel - but I always go easy there without knobbies. We'll see how long they last - but to me the deep tread pattern looks quite durable. Try these, they're from Pirelli - you'll like them.

Brilliant and long lasting tyres
I got these as a free upgrade when I bought my 2015 CB500X last year in August, and so far I have put around 11,000km on them (a bit over 6000 miles), and they have provided superb grip through the twisties, okay grip on some light off roading (could be my skill rather than the tyres though), and grip in the torrential downpours we have been having here lately.
I would definitely recommend these tyres to anybody who commutes on their light adv bike, as well as takes it through the twisties and on some dirt tracks. I look forward to putting many more kilometers on them before I need to replace them.
As you can see from the photo, the wear, even after almost 11,000km, is nowhere near the indicator.

Grippy Road Biased DS Tire
These tires came stock on my '16 Multistrada 1200S. So far I am very very impressed with the dry and wet grip on pavement. I have roughly 3k miles on them and the rear is just starting to square off, which I'll probably have to change by 4k. I would have liked to get a bit more life out of the rear. They lean with confidence and hold a line nicely. I haven't done too much gravel/dirt, but they are a big improvement over a sport touring tire like the PR4 once you leave the pavement. I've ridden in the high 20's (*F) and they don't feel skittish at all. I don't feel like I'm giving up much on-road performance to have an acceptable amount of dirt performance and would recommend them. From super slabbing, to mountain roads, to unimproved dirt roads, these tires handle it all with ease.

Improved !
Replaced Honda CB500X Scorpion Trail rear original with II after 7500 miles. The II is still new so tread life is an open question; hope to get 30% more life that Pirelli advertises. The new II feels better than the original. Very secure in the corners, smooth at high speed with none of the occasional side-to-side slip of the original. So far, I recommend this upgrade. Miles will tell.

3 Weeks in
Got these tires for my 2011 Multistrada. Bike came with Conti RoadAttack 2's and I wanted a tire with some dirt capability. I've had these tires on for about 3 weeks/900 miles.
First, the tires scrubbed in pretty quickly. Within the first week I was running to the edge of the contact patch. These tires are great on pavement. Just got back from a mountain ride today and these handled the twisties perfectly. 100% confidence in the turns with these. On this same trip I went on some class 4 roads and gravel roads and again, these tires were great. I didn't adjust pressures or anything, just put the Multi in Enduro mode. These tires are doing exactly what I bought them for. Got them on sale which just made it sweeter.

Awesome tire
I purchased this tire to replace my stock Pirelli MT60 on my 2015 Ducati Scrambler. I wanted a tire that was not nobby / offroad as I never intend to take my bike offroad with the exception of hard packed dirt roads. Did my research and liked the specs on this tire. Installed it and put about 80 miles on it on wet / damp roads. Tire grips like a gorilla and warms up quick. I have not hit any twisties yet, so cannot speak to the lean angle. I often get caught riding in the rain and definitely wanted something good for rain. I would expect it to equally perform well on a hot dry payment. And how can you go wrong with a Pirelli?

good performance and less longevity
I would like to compare this tire and my previous conti trail attack 2 on ktm adventure 1190.

The Surprise thing is this scorpion trail is more stable on sand and light offroading trip compare to conti.

It does really good job in cornering and maneuver at low speed. i prefered this on conti.

The significant different between both is i have rode the conti for 16000km and have to let it go finally because the tire lose it's shape But with this scorpion I only ride for almost 10000km now and the tire start to have significant crack on the side . (noted that I ride mostly on straight lane). I don't thing it will last as long as conti.

So I have the option of going on light fire roads, but also to handle tarmac with gravel, which can catch you off guard. I still wanted to maintain what a sport touring tire offers - grip, cornering confidence and longevity.

These tires are the update to my CB500X's factory tires, which have worked well for the last 2 years, 8500 miles. I don't think I'd quite reached the end of my old tire's life, until I locked up the rear on the highway last week. After that I took a good hard look and decided not to wait any longer. Hoping for another great couple of years out of this new set.

Is this tire a 95/5 just like the original Trail 1's?
Ryan M on Sep 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: it's a 90-10 tire that can do a good job on hard gravel. Avoid mud and sand.
What kind of mileage total should I expect out of the life of these tires?
Stephen M on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I ride a CB500X. Current mileage is 11500+\- . OEM Scorpion Trail was down to 10% by 7K miles then I burn down to bald spinning my way through some sand out in the Mojave. So I replaced it with Trail II With a little better then 4K miles on it, the Scorpion Trail II is looking pretty fresh. With a keen eye you can distinguish between the center contact patch compound and the softer side tread. To sum up, I can't answer your specific question. However for what it's worth it is my opinion that the Trail II is a substantive upgrade over the first generation S/T. I have every intention of sticking with this tire for future replacement. For clarity, I am still running the OEM Trail I on the front and it likely won't get me beyond 13k.
Can these tires be used with tubes safely?
Alfred M on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have no experience using tubes in a tubeless tire. I will say that I have close to 7K miles on this rear tire. Appearance of the tread causes me to presume I could easily get twice that mileage out of this tire.
Tire is mounted to a CB500X.
I'm purchasing a Daytona 675R that comes stock with the supercorsa's. Since they are strictly dry only tires, I want to have them changed out immediately to something that can handle both wet and dry commuting... As well as provide some grip when encountering the occasional gravel scattered across the roads here in Texas. I had a few slips in corners on gravel patches around the city which lead to a low side once a while back.

So between these and the Angel GT's, which would be a better tire while still providing some level of that confidence enspiring grip the supercorsa's offer on dry conditions - but in a more "universal" condition? These will NOT be used on track - strictly commuting, cruising and sight seeing.
A shopper on Nov 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My new Scorpion Trail IIs are the OEM upgrade for my Honda CB500X. I commute 50 miles daily in all conditions, so wet / cool and hot / dry surfaces are normal fare. Lean angles ~ 40 degrees; not super aggressive but serious enough for me. I'm backing off the speed a little on wet days, but not much. The Scorp IIs are stuck like glue throughout my cornering with no difference in wet vs dry performance. The IIs have not hydroplaned either. The IIs are significantly improved from the original Scorp Trails. One difference is the rear profile; I no longer need to counter steer as much with the new IIs and the rubber compound is stickier all around. Gravel is another story, but I don't think any tire can solve that problem. Quick surface evaluation is a must at intersections and unfamiliar roads. I got 7500 miles on the originals and hoping to make 9000 miles on the IIs. I thought about Michelin PR3s or 4s, but I have no reason to change from these now. I'm completely satisfied with the Scorp IIs so far.
Im in the market for new tires for my 2013 S10, I am looking for a set of tires that are great for mainly road, I will be commuting on highway and with 17 miles of curves, riding in wet and dry conditions, I am looking hard at the Battlax A40 right now, how would these compare?
Ty F on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I ride the scorpion trail II on my 2015 multistrada. So far I have 5000 miles on it. The fronts are still in great shape, the rear needs replacing soon. I ride pretty hard including 2 track days so far. Got caught in 3 heavy downpours one day, cars were pulling off the road but I kept going with no issues. So far I love these tires. Haven't really tried them much in the dirt or dirt roads yet. I can't compare to the Battlax since I've never ridden them except in 2007-08 on my FJR. I think they're worth the money.
Is this tire tubeless or for spoked tube wheels only? I am looking to replace my Scorpion Trail 1 tires on my '14 tiger 800ABS. Wanting something a little stickier.
Paul S on Jul 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tubeless.
I'm looking at the Scorpion Trail II for my Bandit 1250. Not a typical adventure bike, weighs in at 560 with a 450 lb carrying capacity. I'm wondering if these tires will hold up with that weight? I'm looking for better feel on gravel roads than a typical sport touring tire. Thanks!
Frances C on Sep 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do not think you will have problem using the PS ll tires on your Bandit. As I understand it, the PS lls are essentially the same tire as the Pirelli Angel GT, which is a long wearing and sticky sport touring tire. I had the Angels on a BMW K1600 which weighs 700+ pounds and got almost 10k miles out of the rear tire! I cant wait for my stock tires to wear out so I can put on the PS ll tires!
will these tires work on a wr250x? or are they made for bigger bikes?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you can get the correct size I can't see why not. Just don't expect them to work off road like semi-knobby or knobby tires. The higher load rating just means they 'll feel a little stiffer on a lighter bike.
Can anyone comment on the profile of these tires? Sharper turn in and pointy? More predictable and rounder?
Addison J on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Flatter and rounder but still offers good turn-in.
will these tires fit on dirt bike rims?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to the Pirelli site they come in 17", 19" & 21" front sizes but only 17" rear sizes.
