    have not tried yet.. but that's my choice for the next tire change (sooon), based on multistrada and s100xr owners opinions.

    I fitted a set recently to replace the original tyres at 5700 miles. Views have to be caveated by the fact I am a new rider and so donít really know what Iím talking about.

    I feel more at home on these tyres. I forget about them. The Pirellis would give me occasional moments of vagueness but I havenít had that yet with the mutants. Could be down to hours in the saddle - I did 5k miles on the Pirellis but only 250 so far on the mutants. But my initial opinion is that I prefer them. I will update once I have more miles.

    Sounds like someone in the Dunlop Marketing team is an 'X-Men' fan, naming the tyre Dunlop Mutant  :008:

    Bennetts have a good early review of the tyre on You Tube. They seem to like it!

    To follow up on my post above.  I've now done about 2500 miles on the Mutants.  My opinion has not changed.  I prefer them to the OEM Pirellis.  Wet and dry they are just not noticeable, though of course I ride much slower in the rain.  I did get a puncture in the rear (screw) after only a few hundred miles, but that happened with the Pirelli also.  Unless anything persuades me otherwise, this will be my go-to tyre when they have worn out.

    Wanted to try those new Mutants but I could not get them in Canada at the time, so I went with TKC70. I like them better then the OEM, they give me more confidence on paved/curve roads. I also have a 1km ride on gravel to my place and and the Conti are a huge improvement.
