Pirelli MT60s Corse Versys Off Road

Had a final quick blast with the MT60s which have now had it, for off road or trail runs anyway. Lasted approximately 8000k, 1000k which has been on trails runs at a guess. Great grip on the tarmac and good off road, but they do block up easy if the ground it a little soft or damp. I will receive a set of Heidenau K73 for testing next week so I will see how they compare.
I would consider other tires, at least for the rear before purchasing these again. The front has about 2k left on it.
Quick video of my final blast with them.

Did my first 500km with MT60, and it still looks new. Soft Moscow asphalt??)) Think it's not as bad as some guys say - 5000k, on average..

MT 60's are a great tire if you are doing fire trails but on the pavement I got 4100 out of a front tire and got 2200 out of each rear tire. After the 2nd rear I went with Michelin Pilot Road 4's and love them. Its a asphalt queen now and I am 100% happy. 2k miles and no real sign of wear. Just my two cennts worth.

It will be interesting to hear how you like the Heidenau K73's.

Happy riding!
