For 250cc dual-purpose car front tire replacement

I bought it as a front tire of Kawasaki's KLE 250 Anhelo. It is Dunk D605 before replacement exchange. According to the character of the motorcycle, I chose it as an off tire from On Road. The D605 before the change was about to get lower (about 8 mm) in the mountain, but the noise on the road was quite large.
Although exchange was done by DIY, it was very easy to install to the wheel and raise the bead because it is large in diameter and small in width. (Since the rear is 17 inches, I exchange it at SIRAC of MICHELIN at the same time, but this is hard and it is hard ... if there was 17 inches in this MT90, was it a bit easier?
After exchanging, I ran a little less than 1000 kilometers on the on-road center, but the lightness of handling is first impressive. Is the block small and dense compared to worn D605? It was a response to onodoro cornering which was somewhat unreliable until one touched. Now I am used to it a lot, I calm down, but I feel the "softness" of the tire as a whole.
There is also a reason for weight distribution on the front because KLE 250 of the equipped car is twin, but maybe a better harder tire is more compatible. If it is a single cylinder car, it will surely be better.
After becoming familiar, if it is on-road it is light, rolling noise is small, road noise is small, and straight running stability is solid. It can be said that the change in the tread can not be seen with wear at about 1000 km.
Off is truly enough to run "as it is". There is no problem if it is a flat gravel forest road. There is no problem passing through the muddy after the rain, and although it sticks surprisingly, attacking is impossible. I think that it is the defensive range until the trekking.
I am satisfied as a body. Mostly on-road use, but occasionally I want to run as it is ... I think that it is a tire that fits into usage. I think that it is good for a light weight tourer (Verses 250 or CRF 250 rally) that came out recently.
