Worth the price

I put these on my DRZ400 ,on the rear, then went on a 210 mile trip with a very aggressive group of riders. In the rain half the day to boot. We did roads , dirt roads, single track, and some trails. I couldn't be happier the tire stuck when I need it to, it was very predictable and fairly quiet. I'm not sure I will get 1000 miles on them but we will see , I would rather replace then try to stretch it.

Good traction

This design has withstood the test of time. The MT21 has been around for a while and I can see why. It offers good traction in a variety of terrains and it isn't terribly priced. Kudos to Pirelli.

Better than D606 on my KLX250S

I replaced a rear D606 with this tire. I found the off-road performance as good as the D606 in dry sand, hard pack and rocks. Not as good in mud.

On the street, the MT21 is far superior to the D606, which I found to be a dangerous tire, especially for cornering. The D606 will slide out suddenly with no warning with very little lean angle, but the MT21 lets you lean further, and loses grip only gradually, so you have a warning and a chance to correct.

The D606 wears slightly better than the MT21, but I'm up to 5,000 miles on the MT21.

A: These tires would be more for dirt tracks and gravel, cross country racing and in the desert. They are meant really for hard terrain, not for soft or muddy terrain. The knobby pattern on the tire is closely spaced so if you were to ride with these in muddy conditions the mud would pack in between the knobs very quickly an leave you with little traction. For muddy conditions you would want to look into a soft or soft-intermediate terrain tire with more widely spaced knobbies.
