GS/Dual Purpose Tires

I ride a lot of well maintained dirt roads with my 2017 KTM Duke 390.
I wish I could find some GS/Dual Purpose Tires that would fit !!

Anyone know of a brand/model?

PS - may have to invest in the new 390 Adventure when it's available

The Shinko 705s appear to be the only ones that won't outright break the bank... but even then, you still end up with a 120 front tire rather than a 110. I dont think that would really stop me from trying them out, personally.

I want new tires, these are on my list. I am looking at the 700 also. Tough choices lol.

2018 Duke 390, just over 200 miles. No awesome mods yet...

There's a Duke for sale locally, add says it's got Shinko 805. Not sure if it's an option or a typo on the for sale post? Looks good though!

Some pics in case the link goes down. I guess the front fender is no longer an option with larger tires...





Cheers!
