Anakee Adventure tires

Has anyone here tried the new Anakee Adventure tires? I'm going to be tasking my GS for more road trips this year than off-road so I'm going to bin the Wilds I have on it now. I'd love to hear from someone that can compare these new tires from Michelin with the Stinko 705s. Though I've never used them I'm very impressed with the on road performance of the 705s that I witnessed this past weekend on a friend's GSA. And, it' doesn't suck that I can buy a front and rear Stinko for the same price as just the rear Anakee Adventure or TKC70.

Note - the tire I'm asking about IS NOT the Anakee 3 Adenture tire but this tire:

On road cornering performance, quiet, tire life, and price are my priorities (in that order) for a road tire. These new 80/20 tires from Michelin look like they may be hitting a sweet spot between the Wilds and the Anakee 3s.

Current scooters:
'16 R1200GS Triple Black
'16 KTM Super Duke 1290R
'18 Yamaha WR250R
