I want the off-road traction of the TKC80s, but with a front that has a more rounded, less pointy crown, so the transition from upright to the first few degrees of turn-in is smoother and more positive, a weakness of the TKC80 IMHO.

My 21 is not a pointy crown, it is actually quite flat. It must have something to do with the 1190R wide front rim. I wonder if there is a perfect rim width that will give you the profile your after.

I am absolutely stunned how well the TKC corners on my bike. The rear I am able to get it to slide a rounds effortlessly but the front stays planted.

Yes, itching to try the new tubeless Motoz Adventure tires on my 1190 R when they become available - they look great.  So far I've only been able to eak out around 2000 miles on my rear tire from TKC 80, Mitas E09, and E10's.  Current tire is Shinko 805 and I have about 2500 miles with more to go.  I just ordered another for the next rear since I don't know of anything else to try.  My front TKC 80 is still intact with 7500 miles.

From what I can tell they are not available yet. The only estimates I could find said Spring 2016.

A small rear tire:

Found some others:

I guess there are a few different ones that carry the Tractionator name.  No one had the Adventure version.

Man that's a great looking tire, going to try to grab one before I go on a ride first of March and then for March Moto Madness
