I saw this image on Instagram, and I think the knobbly tires look great. But what affect on handling, ride quality, will knobbly tires have in comparison to the Pirelli phantoms that come as standard?

Agree, looks good, even better with a scrambler style exhaust...cornering and long fast rides would suffer...but for those looks?!

Thanks bbninja. It seems less appealing now you've put it that way. I use my bike solely for the short commute to work plus some fun on the weekends (all of which is on the road). I think I'll stick with the pirelli's for now.

Ohhh, thought you were going to use them for off-road riding. Yeah, they're meant for off-roading and they have less grip on the street than normal street tires and could be illegal for street use unless they are D.O.T. knobby tires.

But it looks bloody aweseome! What tires does the Ducati Scrambler use as default??? Look very similar.
