2019 Michelin 80/20 Adventure Tire - The new Anakee?

A hint below from Dec ‘18 Road Runner magazine, but unable to find any other reference. I loved the road traction and durability of the Anakee lll, but didn’t like the howl or lack of off pavement traction. Maybe the new tread pattern will make it the perfect tire for my needs.

So the rear is dual compound and the front is single compound? Did I read that correctly? Should be interesting, at any rate.

"Anakee Adventure" is the new tire.

I bet they don't get the great mileage the Anakee III's get. If they do well I might try them unless there is a big hit on mileage. Then again the Anakee III's are might damn good for my style of riding.

The new MICHELIN® Anakee® Adventure motorcycle tire, available starting in January 2019, has been approved as original equipment for the BMW R 1250 GS.

Anakee III are 90/10
Anakee Adventure are 80/20
Anakee Wild are 50/50

MICHELIN Anakee Adventure tires will be available in North America through authorized Michelin motorcycle tire distributors starting Jan. 1, 2019.

I just changed an Anakee 3 front that had 22,000 miles on it and wasn't cupped or even to the wear bars. Such a huge fan of these tires.

That looks like a really good tire! The front reminds me a bit of the TKC 70. Which is one of the best front tires for pavement and then loose off pavement riding. Should bite really well, which is what the V STrom really needs to give it a bit more stability in loose material. Probably wear more evenly than the TKC 70 front does.

I have 6000+ miles on the Anakee III's I got put on the V2 late Spring and are outstanding on pavement and adequate on fairly smooth dry gravel/dirt roads. It's amazing how little wear there is. The stock tires were nearly shot at 6500 miles. I would not be surprised to see 12-15k miles on the Anakee III's as I change them since I don't run them completely to the indicators.

I would consider the new Anakee Adventure tires on the Versys-X 300 or a (2019 CB500X :-) ) that spends more time off of paved roads - but only if they do well with the early adopters. Often these block designs have some issues but Michelin seems to do tires about the best overall. I don't really see a center wear line on the rear (like a TKC70 or K60s) but we shall see. No doubt they will be pricey.

That's great. This is where I look at the mileage per dollar when buying tires although mileage is highly variable. You might get 3x the mileage on a Michelin over a similar tread Shinko that costs 2x as much (just an example). The best part is not having to install them so often.
