    Hi, Myself don't have any experience with dual purpose tyres with my D390 but heard people using

    Front : Michelin Sirac street 110/90/17
    Rear : Ralco Speed Blaster 120/80/17

    The above combination is better than the below one.

    Front : Ceat Vertigo
    Rear : MRF MoGrip Meteor - 120/80/17

    It's not really safe to ride fast in tarmac with these tyres.

    The MRF FC1 and C1 are good enough for mixed usage-hard enough to hold on better in off road conditions and not too hard so as to not provide adequate grip on tarmac-and are proper sizes for the D390-and are about Rs2500 cheaper per set than the now standard H speed rated Metzelers.
    They are OE fittment on Dominar and D250.

    You can try Pirelli Scorpion Raly STR tires. Stock sizes available. Using the same tires for 5k kms on my 2017 Duke 390. Dry & wet grip is awsm on on/off road. This tire is 60% on road & 40% off road tire as specified by Pirelli. In Pune it costs Rs. 14500/- front & rear set.

    Go for Timsun Tyres both front and rear at once.

    Front would be TS823 110/70

    Rear would be TS822 140/70
