I'm not really concerned about whether it is rated here in Canada or North America since they are unlikely to have been submitted for ratings here anyway, just wonder if anyone has tried it and how well it worked.if it don't have the mountain & snowflake symbol, it ain't a winter tire

So their claims definitely are that the tire is intended for snow use on motorcycles.The world's first and only winter tire
The 'WINTER GRIP PLUS' by ANLAS is developed for bikers with larger bikes who prefer to use their bike in any weather condition.
The "WINTER GRIP PLUS' is designed to keep its users on the road, when others have to leave their bike at home due to cold, wet and/or snowy weather.
Safety on cold, wet and snowy roads have been the main target of development for the 'WINTER GRIP PLUS'.
The usage of the newest polymer and overall material technology combined with "Zero Degree Radial" technology have made it possible to produce a safe and well performing tire under the worst weather conditions.
- Absolute grip and excellent handling in cold weather conditions
- Excellent Comfort
- Reasonable Mileage also in warm weather conditions
Evidently they have been for sale in Quebec. A local (Ontario) rider ordered them from a local store (Riders Plus) and the store special ordered them in from Quebec. They told him they got the last set that was in stock. He has them on his Strom but has been riding his other bike since the weather has been pretty fe up here so has only put. A few hundred km on them and no word of riding in snow etc.They look very interesting, but how the hell would you get a set from Turkey to North America?
Nope. Good call, even the DL 650 is far too heavy and scary on ice. Been there, done that - and it's something I'd prefer not to repeat.I wouldn't want to hit the sow on such a heavy bike as my 1k. Maybe the 650's are that much lighter, but it still seems like a scary proposition.
