The new Dunlop street tires are designed for hypersport motorcycle, the new Dunlop SportSmart2 Max has a radical new front construction for sustained performance and a reduced warm-up time. By reducing deformation at high speeds – especially during lean – durability is improved by a claimed 25 percent.
The new profile of the Dunlop SportSmart2 Max offers lighter handling and more feedback during corner entry, with a reduced tendency to stand up when braking in a turn, along with increased confidence at extreme lean angles.
To improve wet performance of the SportSmart2 Max with no detriment to grip, Dunlop had developed a new secret compound mix that’s able to expand the contact patch, providing maximum grip in wet and different temperature conditions – a claimed improvement of 4 percent over the previous Dunlop SportSmart tire.
For the rear tire Dunlop uses multi-tread. Dunlop equipped motorcycles have won 16 FIM Endurance World Championships since 1994, and the ‘Multi-Tread’ rear tire has been a key element in these wins. The Dunlop SportSmart2 Max tire incorporates an endurance center compound with a high-grip shoulder to ensure even wear and consistent road performance.
