Shinko products were subjected to intensive testing and evaluation which let to it receiving the KS (Korean Standard), the JIS (Japan Industrial Standard) and E-Mark, ISO 9001. Today Shinko Tyres produces approximately 200,000 motorcycle tyres per month.
“I ride a Buell 1200 XB and recently fitted Shinto Verge tyres. What a difference! I am blown away at the response and feedback I get from the tyres, much better than the Pirelli`s that I replaced. I can`t understand why most of the bike shops in Cape Town are negative about Shinko, I can only think it’s because they have never tried them, I think they are great tyres at reasonable price.”
