I was really wanting to know how the wear was on this tire. I am really interested in it but any idea on around about how much mileage you can pull out of this tire, I know it all depends on the conditions, but anyone have any experience on it?

Effortless handling for a Hayabusa
I ride a Hayabusa, 1st Gen. It's big, heavy, sluggish in tight transitions. I ride her hard! Knee down on occasion.

I put the Apex on the front and the steering effort was like a bike 100 lbs lighter!! Quick transitions became MUCH easier when riding hard. It sticks really well, especially with the Busa's weight on it and very stable under braking.

The Apex has a triangulated profile so when you are at high lean it does seem to get slower as you add more angle like rounder profile tires.

I've got 2200 miles of HARD riding on it and looks like I'll need to changed tires around 2500 miles.

Overall I'm extremely happy with the Apex in grip, handling and price. I already have the next Apex ready to mount when the time comes.
About time for a new one

Look great, can't wait to try them out!
Great looking tires! Unfortunately, it's still winter in Ohio so haven't been riding yet. I run Shinko tires on 2 other bikes so looking forward to trying these out. Great price and nice looking tire!

Least durable tire ever made!
My liter bike consumes rear tires; but these lasted HALF as long as any other brand- If you have a powerful bike- Don't waste your $

Great Deal
At first I was a little unsure about buying this tire because of the price. But I had it put on and hit the streets right away. I live in the middle of no where so immediately I got into the twisties of central Missouri. I let the tires get warm and then let it go. The was smooth. There was minimal vibration. So leaned it over through the turns even harder. The tire stuck to the road with no problems. I have yet to ride in the rain because it has not rained here in forever. Since I put the tire on I have about a thousand miles on it. The wear looks minimal and the tire is still in great shape. I stick to the roads still to. So far it's been a great investment.

Great tires
These are great tires. Mounted them on my DR-Z supermoto to replace Avon Distanzias. What an improvement! These shinkos smoothed out my ride, increased my confidence, and turned 2nd gear corners into 3rd gear corners. The 150/60-17 fits great on the drz rear. Tires look great too. Great prices and fast shipping at bike bandit. Give these tires a try. I was skeptical at first of shinko but with just 80 miles on these tires it has greatly improved my supermoto. I will post back with wear information as I ride these tires more.

You will feel the difference
This was the first time that I bought a tire for my Katana 750. In fact, the first time I have ever bought a motorcycle tire. I bought the bike used. the old tire took my confidence from riding in curves because it started slipping and drifting. This tire is increasing my confidence and it feels great in the curves with each ride. I would buy this tire again.

1000% Improvement Over Old Tires
I bought a used '03 Suzuki SV650 that had a set of relatively new Metzler tires on them. I could not stand how the bike handled so I swapped them out with these Shinkos and it is now like a completely different bike. I do some pretty aggressive cornering and these tires stick like glue. I have only had them for a couple of weeks so I don't know how durable they will be but I am mostly just a weekend rider so I am not too concerned. I think they are great tires at a great price and will continue to buy Shinkos in the future.

Good Value
These have a much smoother ride than the stockers and they grip very well. They also have a good looking tread pattern. A good value for the price. If they give me near the 6000 miles I got from the stockers, I'd buy them again.
