Avon Distanza Tires for Versys

I apologize in advance if this has been discussed, but i do not have time to search and scour the internet for information. With that said, does Avon make the Distanza in the stock tire size for an 08 Versys?

If not, what size are people putting on the Versys if it's different than stock?

Thanks in advance for any assistance,

They do, but Avon's new Trail Rider tires replace the old Distanzia.

And I have the trail-riders and love them.

Here is another post of mine with links to a review over 25,000 kms over some incredible roads

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

I had a 150 / 70 Distanzia on the back of my Vers for 6,000 miles. It performed very well, but they are a little spendy. They are still avail. on ebay, one guy selling them out for like 90 bucks shipped- but I found them after my new Shinko had arrived.

EDIT: I checked the old link I had for the Distanzia bargain on ebay, the guy's listing says "sold out" now.

Trailriders are some kick ass tires, great on the road, and handle the gravel and trails well.
