Is it a clear winner? We’re still waiting on the official MSRP of the Anakee Wild, but the internet is already offering them at around $400 per set for a full-size ADV bike. That’s pricier than you can source TKC 80s, but it’s also a newer tire. At any rate, longevity will be the real test. If the Anakee Wild really does last 6,000 or even 8,000 miles it will have a clear advantage over some of the competition. If not, I don’t think the Wild has a clear hook to entice riders. It’s a bold step for Michelin to take into a very competitive category, full of educated and experienced consumers. Even with admirable pavement grip and stability, decent off-road chops, and longer life, I’m not sure it will take the place of the TKC 80 as the go-to choice for ADV riders. Time, and the market, will tell!
