No firsthand experience, but the write up looked good. (Saw it in an online moto mag, forget which one but should be easy to find.) The prices looked reasonable too, but then I noticed that while the front is a radial, the rear was only available in bias ply. I wouldn't mix them, as I like to get a bit aggressive in the corners. OTOH, the reviewers liked them, and I'm assuming the moto journalists are more skilled than I am.
I wouldn't mix them either, Loco! But the Ultimate Moto test I linked above says, "Although a bias-ply 50/50 tire, the street manners of the tubeless Dunlop Mission tires were exceptional." So I emailed Dunlop consumer affairs and got this response:
We appreciate your contact and interest in Dunlop. The "new" Trailmax Mission has a bias / bias belted construction.
Hope this helps - ride safe!

If the front was a radial, It would have an "R" in the size e.g. 110/80R
-19. no letter denotes bias ply construction, and for the rear 150/70B
-17 denotes a bias belted construction, all are tubeless.
J&P Cycles has a great page for deciphering "Tireglyphics":
I'm still on the fence. I'm on Revzilla's watch list for a Mitas front which is supposed to be in stock in late February, so I'll make up my mind then. My rear OEM Battlax is at the wear bars and the front still looks OK, but I prefer to change out both tires when switching brands. I'll report back if I go with the Missions- lotta posts concerning Mitas' already.
