Semi off-road/dual sport rubber

Am thinking that my new bikes gonna have a different look about it, more of an urban/scrambler theme, any ideas on tyres to fit.

I have a pirelli Rally STR Scorpion on my Svartpilen 401 good off road and nothing to say on road, a good compromise

Thanks for the shortcut JD, that's the look.....spot on. Will turn up at the ADV Bike Rider Festival at Ragley Hall on something similar next year.

Thanks for this but what did you mean by "nothing to say on road"

I've checked them out on Perelli's website and the look and read up good. Just gotta price them up fitted locally.

I mean that they do the job, there isn't a felling like an ultra sport tire, but there isn't default and I took the angle as with sports tires without problem.

I was really surprised by the quality of these tires on asphalt and dirt roads
