Motoz Tractionator GPS Rear Tire?

I'm pretty interested in trying out the Motoz tractionator GPS as the rear tire on my 2013 Versys in the 150/70-17 size. Has anyone around here tried it out yet? A local guy with a tiger wrote a good review for them and they seem to be inline with what I'm looking for from a back tire. What are your guys thoughts? I'm looking at pairing this with a TKC80 120/90-17 front.

What you can judge by the thread and the continuous strip is pretty much the traction you will get (like a heidenau k60 scout, that is, not much).
As for mileage, dunno.
As for the so claimed reversability, I'm not that gullible.

You might want to look at Metzeler Karoo 3 or shinko 805.

Also, careful: a 120/90 wont fit under the front fender unless you mod to raise it. The 120/70 tkc80 is available though.

Ended up ordering the following last night. Will report how much I like them once I get them mounted and have a couple thousand miles on them. Decided to start with the stock size TKC80 for starters. I may move up to a 120/90-17 after i wear these out to have a back to back comparison for myself.

Front: TKC80 120/70-17
Rear: Motoz Tractionator GPS 150/70-17

Local guy to me reviewed the Tractionator GPS that does similar rides. Curious to see how they act on the Versys. I'm shooting for 8-10k out of this set.
