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.    


  • 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

Excellent price to quality ratio I bought my CBR500R new, I currently have about 2800 miles on the bike. I am not a pro nor is this a 1000CC Supersport, all the same I have been able to push the bike within the range of my ability and not have any traction issues. Tire wear is almost imperceptible at this point. Wet traction is ok, I have gotten caught in the rain a few times with no issues. The tire is being replaced this week as it did pick up a nail. For the price I couldn't pass up putting the same tire back on. August 12, 2014
So far awesome My 690 Duke ate the factory tire in record time and so I wanted to get something that would last considerably longer and still perform when I need it. So far so good, I've done about a thousand miles of every kind of terrain, and it still looks new. heading on a 1200 mile trip this week through the sierras. August 4, 2014
Great product These tires handle very well and don't grip too much which leaves more room for agility and leaning in corners. July 28, 2014
Great all arounder Second set on my CBR1100xx...have always run sportbike tires with Michelin Pilots my primary choice.. put these on my touring bike which is used for long trips. I rode first tire with a lot freeway miles and aggressive canyon carving in between. Got 7500 mi till wear bars in center..always maintained 42 psi as per Dunlop ...seem to heat up quick with great grip and are confidence inspiring. Have little wet experience with the exception of couple of thunderstorms but felt secure... great sport touring tire ! July 14, 2014
Great tire This is a great tire if you are a commuter like me. Lasts decently long but still feel like I can lean it over and use the whole tire when needed June 8, 2014
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

Garret L: These came stock on my 2013 Kawasaki 650 ABS and I really like them. May 18, 2014
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

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.

120/70ZR18 (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.
