    I have a 2017 DR650 needing some new tyres. Appreciate some feedback on what tyres members are putting on their DR650.
    Expecting to be riding %60 on bitumen and %40 dirt/gravel tracks. Thanks……….

    I have used Mitas E07 on my DR650 for the sort of on seal off seal you are planning, they wear pretty well and work well on the seal and reasonably well off the seal. I currently have Pirelli MT21’s on the DR they are better off the seal but wear a lot faster.

    My preference was TKC80 on the front and Mitas E-09 on the rear. The E-09 lasts a little less than the E-07 but is still better than most and is a much knobblier tyre. Mitas recently released an updated tread pattern for the E-07 so I don’t know how the new pattern fares.

    Take a look at https://motoz.com.au/ I’ve found these tyres to be a lot cheaper than the options mentioned by others, I’m about to replace the stock trailwings with the RallyZ’s
