Dunlop Roadsmart 2 Rear Tires

Sport-touring riders constitute a very experienced and savvy sector of the motorcycling scene, and they continue to place a premium on multiple tire expectations: Outstanding wet-weather performance, linear and responsive handling traits, traction characteristics on par with sport tires and extended tread life - all in one tire. All of these qualities were present in the popular first-generation Roadsmart, and now these virtues have been elevated in the new Roadsmart II to create a higher level of performance for the long-haul crowd.

Immediately evident is the new tread pattern on both front and rear Dunlop Roadsmart 2 Tires. The front tire still incorporates Dunlop’s readily recognized cosecant-curve groove pattern. The shape and placement of these grooves are newly designed to promote even tire wear up front, and they also stiffen the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire life. Additional grooves also help improve wet-weather performance thanks to a greater sea-to-land ratio that helps promote water dispersion.    

Features:

  • New tread rubber compounds include silica to help deliver impressive performance in wet conditions while also extending wear
  • New cosecant-curve tread pattern helps promote even tire wear and stiffens the pattern for reduced tire squirm and extended tire longevity
  • Increased tread depth further promotes water channeling while also extending tire mileage
  • MT Multi-Tread rear tire incorporates a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire tread and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder to enhance cornering performance and provide class-leading grip and feel
  • Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) intuitively allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides remarkably linear steering at various lean angles, and puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles, for enhanced grip and handling

Great all around tire This was my first replacement tire after about 2000 miles on some Michelin 2cts. I've put about 7,000 miles on the roadsmart 2s and have loved them. I commute on the weekdays, "spirited" weekend rides, and have a couple multi-day tours. Treadlife has been great. No flattening and there is still great life in the tread. Never lost confidence when leaned over as well. I don't ride often in the rain but traction has been good the few times I have. Highly recommend and won't be looking for a different tire when the time comes to replace it April 15, 2014
Round Tire > Square Tire 1) Has round shape making it easy to roll 2) Made of rubber 3) Holds air when mounted to rim 4) Is dark in color 5) Does not stand up well to sharp foreign objects being lodged with great force into the tread.... which is why I had to purchase another one. April 12, 2014
Great tire! I had these on my 2013 Ninja650 and put a little over 11,000 miles on the rear before replacing it. I now have a 2012 Ninja1000 and plan to switch back to these same tires as soon as the OEM tires wear out! I rode in every condition possible except snow/ice and these held up great and never lost traction once! February 8, 2014
Better than PR3 for Longevity and Grip It's hard to beat the Michelin PR3 or PR2 for longevity and grip, but I *think* the Roadsmart 2 did just that! After an unfortunate experience with a PR3 rear tire wandering Nevada deserts at assertive speeds I was a bit surprised they way it behaved towards the very end of its life. Spooked and about to ride the Iron Butt Rally (at far less assertive speed) I opted for the nearest competitor and was pleasantly surprised the Roadsmart held out longer than I expected, as well as being more predictable. I'd also had several PRx product wear very oddly in the zone between the different compounds. My riding is probably atypical with fast straight lines through deserts with occasional twisties to get there...all while loaded down with extra fuel and rally gear, but I plan on getting another one next time.

great milage This is the second set of these tires I have purchased. I got 14.5K miles on the rear tire and the front is still going. Looks like it should have at least 2K more miles. Went back and forth across the country (west to east). I live in Eastern Oregon and went to southern CA and back up to 50 miles north of Dawson Creek at the start of the Alaska Hwy. and home. I am not a knee dragger (68 y.o.) but these tires always felt stable. Had some serious downpours and they always had all the grip that I needed. So I am on to the second set and I definitely recommend these tires. October 28, 2013
very good grip wet or dry Just completed 3000+ mile road trip (Silicon Valley to Yellowstone and back) Road in all conditions rain, fog and heat. Really impressed with traction at speed in the wet. Also have the Roadsmart 2 front- nice package. October 21, 2013
2013 Ride to Newfoundand Just had these Road Smart 2 tires put on my VFR for the ride to the rock... 6K in 10 days of riding. These tires have great grip in the rain and played well all day long in a multitude of conditions. With around 7K on them I can say I'm very happy as the tread wear is about par with tires I have had in the past. September 2, 2013
Good Value Once the tire is warm, the grip feels very sure on any corner. I have not had it long enough to tell the wear or the wet, but it works nicely on dry. July 25, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Nicolas C: These tires came with the bike off the showroom floor, and I love them. I have no reason to go with anything else. Wet, dry, somewhat dirty road conditions... they've never let me down. If only they were nail/screw/staple proof. This is my 3rd rear due to punctures. *le sigh* Mar 20, 2014
John N: This tire and size was recommended by the local BMW dealer. I ride a 2005 R1150RT-P daily in my motor escort business. I put these tires on almost 14k miles ago and their only now showing signs that they need to be replaced. They still have nice groves on the centers but the front is wearing more on the left due to road crown. It's time. I have some miles on machines, I don't think I've ever gotten this kind of mileage from a tire. Plus they stick like glue to wet roads.. Jan 6, 2014
WARREN M: I have Dunlops on all my bikes. Have GPAs for track day. Need a street tire with soft rubber on the sides hard in the middle.. Oct 14, 2013
A shopper asked: My bike calls for a 79V rear and 58v front. Please add the load ratings for us out here to make shopping easier! Apr 9, 2012

RevZilla: The following front tires are 58W rated. V-rated tires are speed-rated up to 150mph; W-rated tires are speed-rated up to 168mph.

120/70ZR17
110/80ZR18
120/70ZR18 (59W rated)

The rear tire with the highest load rating is only rated to 75W, which is up to 853 lbs. A 79 load rating is equal to 963 lbs.

The recommended tire for the K1200LT is the Metzeler ME880 (Front) (Rear) . The recommended 160/70VB17 reinforced rear tire and 120/70VB17 front tire achieve the combined load and speed rating.
