Pressemeddelelse   •   Aug 25, 2017 13:11 CEST

Dunlop SportSmart2 MAX has been recommended as first choice in the latest sport tire test of the German motorcycle magazine MO.

Whether in the dry or in the wet, on the country lanes or track day, a modern sports tire has to have a wide range of abilities.

The latest Dunlop hypersport tire has been declared a winner in the recent comparison test by German motorcycle magazine MO. "The new SportSmart has become our MO Tip” judged the respected magazine. On a current Honda Fireblade, MO compared six tires in the dimensions 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR17 rear, measuring their performance on the road and race track.

The praise for Dunlop SportSmart2 MAX was on its all-round performance. MO’s testers explained: "It doesn’t require a big warm-up phase and works from the start. It provides a very stable and reassuring feeling. At the same time, there’s good feedback from front and rear tires. For sporty riders, it’s definitely the first choice"

The testers also forecast high durability from the MAX, adding: "It has shown the least wear on the race track and also left little rubber on the road. Depending on the motorcycle and riding style, 9000 kilometer durability is predicted”

The SportSmart2 MAX is a direct replacement for the SportSmart2 and mixes technologies taken from Dunlop’s World championship winning endurance racing programme with innovations from the revolutionary RoadSmart III. The front tire features a radical new construction, whilst the rear features a revolutionary new compound which is able to expand the contact patch to optimise grip in wet and cold conditions.

It is one of three new hypersport tires launched by Dunlop this year. This includes the D213 GP Pro for racing and professional track riders, the D212 GP Racer for predominantly track use and the SportSmart2 MAX for road use – with a high level of track capability, as proven in the MO test
