Dunlop launches new motorcycle tyre

3rd November 2011

Dunlop has launched a new motorcycle tyre in order to meet the growing demand for sport touring tyres.

The new premium Roadsmart II tyre uses Jointless Belt (JLB) and Multi-Tread (MT) technologies to create a new tyre which combines substantial mileage with class-beating or class-equalling performance in key handling areas.

"In a single-carcass design, the RoadSmart II has evolved the proven qualities of RoadSmart into a new set of benchmarks of stability and performance – not just for sport tourers, but for a wide range of heavy, powerful motorcycles, from roadsters and nakeds to large road trail bikes," said Patrice Omont, Dunlop research and development director [of?] motorcycle and motorsport Europe, Middle East and Africa.

JLB is a tyre construction system which uses advanced engineering techniques to improve steering, give richer feedback and improve high-speed stability.

The MT system, which features durable rubber in the central section of the tread and a softer compound on the outer parts of the tyre, provides improved grip on corners and more responsive braking.
