I've had a few sets of Shinko tires now, attracted by the low prices, and they work reasonably well as long as you are not trying to lean your bike over for cornering more than 45 degrees... as the tire lacks a round enough profile for decent cornering traction compared to "sport bike" or "super sport" tires... I've yet to see a Shinko that has a good round profile for sport bikes...

I installed these tires on my 2013 Suzuki DRZ400SM @3489 miles.
I now have 7109 miles and the rear needs to be replaced (due to hooliganism and burnouts)
the front tire is at 60% and looks great still.
best $166 I ever spent.
great road manners
great in rain/ wet conditions.
good off road
decent light mud traction.
I have done multiple off road trail rides on these tires with friends that were on dirt bikes and they could not believe how well I could stay in front and keep up with them on a stock supermoto in the woods.
I plan to buy another set to replace the current ones when they're finished. If you ride a supermoto and want a tire capable of everything this is it. cannot find a better tire for the price.
