This tire delivered on what it promised. Great mileage Sept '15 - May '16. My motorcycle is the only vehicle I have and I have some pretty long commutes at least 6k miles on em. I've ridden in heavy rain and hail and the tires perform well from 3"soaked highway to hot summer twisties.

I had some problems at first because I got the verge 2x 016's as a set... I love shinko, but that front tire doesn't function well, in my opinion. There is a really steep transition from the center material (hard and rigid for high mileage) and the side material (grippy with good give) and the "fall off" is really unsettling even after hundreds of miles on it, don't get me wrong, the grip never failed, but it really makes you hesitate to push through and keep your lines tight.
I solved this problem, however, by putting the Apex 010 on the front, resolved all of the issues. Not sure if I can compare the mileage between the front tires, but I really don't care: it's the way to go for sure!

So to be clear, the verge 2x 016 REAR TIRE gets 5 STARS!
Skip the verge 2x 016 FRONT TIRE and get the Apex 010 instead and you're golden... and those PRICES!!!
Pros: :
  • rear tire does it all!
Cons: :
  • pair with a different front tire shinko Apex 010
