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!

Prce is remembered long after quality is forgotten
Ok, BMW rider here - I was about to drop nearly $450 for a set of tires from the BMW dealer when some Honda ST1300 friends recommended these tires. Being a tire snob and having spent more on one Bridgestone tire for my ST1100 than I would for a pair of Shinkos on my Bimmer, I was a bit hesitant... but I thought, "they must know what they are talking about."

I mounted a set of Ravens on my 2006 BMW R1200RT before a 2k mile week-long trip to upstate New York. The bike previously had PR2's that may have made it through the trip, but I knew better than to push it. While I had hoped for beautiful weather, what I got was rain every day but one. But, these tires performed flawlessly and left me feeling confident while riding through less-than-stellar conditions.
After about 1200 miles of time on the bike, I took a two-lap trip around Watkins Glen raceway, and these tires gripped well in the corners. I was also surprised when they didn't "skip" as much over wet tar-snakes and painted lines as my PR2's did. Other reviews stated that the tread style of the front tire seemed to track imperfections in the pavement, like cracks, but I didn't experience this. Very happy I decided to go "inexpensive" and take the recommendation of friends who purchased Shinkos. $150 plus mounting and balancing (another $60), best pocket change ever spent. Something else noteworthy, the shop who mounted these didn't even have to use weight. My nice alloy wheels are now all naked without being spoiled by ugly weight that the PR2's required. YMMV...

I didn't rate the tread life as I've only had them for 2k miles, but friends have said that they have gotten over 10k on their ST's.

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 Tire! Will Buy Again!
Ok, these Shinko 009's are one heck of a tire. After 6000 miles (2 oil changes) I still have a very decent amount of tread left. These tires come with A TON of tread until the wear bars, so expect to have them for a while. They give great grip but make sure to scuff them up when you get them, they come smooth as silk from the box. Dry grip is great, but warm up time is fairly long for this tire, hitting some serious twisties I will slowly get more comfortable with the tires because when they are cold they just don't perform as well. Wet traction is average, not deadly by any means but don't go searching for twisties in the pouring rain. I have taken them to the track and I was very impressed with their performance, these tires will get hot and really stick at the track. I run them as a pair and with Texas heat, humidity, and cold snaps I still do not have any sign of cupping. Great tires and do not be afraid of them for any reason, they perform just as well as any of the more expensive name brand sport touring tires. Photos below show the tires as they currently stand with ~6000 miles and 2 track days on them. The middle has worn a lot slower then the sides, so aggressive riding does take extra rubber (weird right? haha). But by the photos I imagine I have at least another oil change in the rear which means these are almost a 10k mile tire. The front almost looks new and I know that I will be buying another set soon, but don't take my word for it. It's $200 for a set of them, go try them yourself. You will be thoroughly impressed.

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.

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.
