Hello ExTEX,our 2014 Burgman 200 has IRC tires. http://www.irc-tire.com/en/mc/
We don't ride in the wet.
IRC Tire (from Inoue Rubber Co) is a Japanese tire brand owned by Inoac Corp., originally Inoue Rubber Co., international conglomerate that started as a manufacturer of bicycle tires, tubes, and industrial rubber products. Inoue Rubber was founded in 1926 by Aiichi Inoue in Nagoya, Japan, and began exporting the IRC tire brand in 1933. Inoue Rubber started production of motorcycle tires in 1952. Today Inoac offers IRC tires and tubes for cruisers, sport bikes, dirt-bikes, scooters and mopeds.
Warranties can only be voided if the owner's actions caused the problem that the warranty is be applied to. A late oil change is not going to cause an engine to explode. Failure to have the valve clearances checked may cause a valve to be burned, but that usually happens afer the warranty period is over.
Thanks for the input.I ride my burgman 200 up here in Charleston, SC area. Been a really wet season so far, but the tires ride decent. I've definitely been looking into different tires just for my own peace of mind.
