Dunlop Roadsmart II Front 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 Roadsmart II 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
  • 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

1 of the best overall
The only thing that I wish this tire could produce is longevity. The best I can get is around 8000 miles, with the Michelin Pilot Road 2 I rolled out close to 10000 miles. But I will sacrifice a little wear for better traction that's why I went back to the Dunlop. I run the full set on my 05 FJR and 07 RT1200. Definitely a good tire.

Second roadsmart 2
Honda RC51, use more as a sport tour now and these are superb at that task. For the road they grip in dry an wet conditions equally well. My choice for anyone looking for sort tire grip but long wear. 10,000 on my last rear tire.

Great tire for sport and touring
I had to get a new front tire on my 2008 FJR1300 because of damaged surface. I just got about 600 miles on this tire but in dry and wet weather it's holding up great. In wet weather I slowly started pushing more and more in curves (not as crazy as with dry weather) and feel very comfortable with this tire. I don't know what the thread life will be but hopefully about 8-10k

NICE
I did the review on the Back tire as well.

In short, unless you spend all day everyday at the track this is a great tire. Keep in mind that it is indeed a touring/ sport touring tire.

GREAT tire.

Lots of grip.
I have had a few sets of Pirelli Angel GT and have liked them. The Dunlop Roadsmart 2 tires feel like they react more to the road. The bike seams to turn more when I lean into turns. They feel like they have more grip then the Pirelli Angels and are cheaper too. Being made on home soil was a added bonus and the main reason I gave them a shot. Plus all of the reviews on Revzilla makes trying something new painless. Didn't have to do much "break in" or scotch bright the tire either. Great traction in wet times too.
Awesome tire!

Best tire out there
This is my 3rd set of Dunlop Roadsmart tires on my 2006 Yamaha FZ6 and I will not run anything else. I get around 11K to 12K per set and the traction in wet and dry conditions is top notch. I ride year round with temps anywhere from 20F and up and have never had a problem with these tires.

Love these tires
I Purchased this tire (in a set) due to my last one running out of tread extremely quickly. After shopping around I found these tires and just had to try them. After about 2k miles I have found these tires to be very reliable and the tread looks exactly the same as new. Just remember to let these tires warm up before doing any cornering. It takes about 15 minutes for these babies to warm up fully. Overall excellent tire and I will be purchasing again.

Can't argue with almost 10K from this tire. Performs well in all conditions too.

John V on Mar 4, 2015
The Q3's have grip for days during the summer when its warm and dry but, I need something for the rain and cold. I am trying these to see how they do. I really like the PP and PR series from Michelin but, I always seem to get them to cup. I will try to give a review after I put some miles on the RS2's. They do great on a buddies CBR1100XX fully loaded and touring!!!!
Dennis S on Feb 20, 2015
I choose this tire because I ride 24/7 and the last set i got 8,000 or more hard miles of use from them in all types of weather, and I have even used them on a track day. These are some of the stickiest touring tires out there for the money. Very durable.
Stetson W on Feb 13, 2015
I have the Roadsmarts and love them, so why not upgrade to these.
A S on Feb 12, 2015
"Cheaper than Pilot Road 3 and I tend to prefer the "feel" of Dunlops. This new-to-me bike simply eats the Brigestones Ive been using. Never tried these tires, but Im sure they will be great on the 2003 FZ1. "
Jennifer V on Jan 18, 2015
bought the rear and just realized the front needs replacing too.
anthony m on Oct 28, 2014
I experienced irregular wear on the sidewalls of a Michelin PR4 front tire at 3,500 miles on my FJR. It cause vibration for the remainder of a 7,700 mile trip, and seemed to be caused by the tread design. Every forth tread block wore prematurely where the channel separated it from being anchored in the harder rubber compound. My friend riding on Roadsmart 2's had the best looking front tire at the end of the trip.

Longer life yet still at the performance level of Sportmax Q2, excellent choice for high performance spot touring and sport bike riders who like spirited riding and a track day now and then.
Tom M on May 3, 2014
When it comes to the oxymoron that are sport-touring tires, these do a pretty good job of facilitating the task. The transition between compounds is quite smooth with the center giving decent longevity (5k plus) and the sides being sticky enough to have some real fun. That said, by nature of it's design, the front tire is prone to "cupping," especially where the two compounds meet as tire nears the end of it's life. How much cupping depends on how aggressive you ride. Overall, a great tire.

I felt it would be necessary to replace my tires at the end of a late Sept./Oct. '13, last blast moto-trip. While in the middle of a 2800 mile trip from CO to ARK and back, the front tire on my '01 Kawa Concours ZG1000A had worn into the wear bars and had to be replaced at a metric-bike dealer shop in Rogers, Ark. After doing some pre-ride homework , I had already decided to replace the pair with Dunlop RoadSmart II's. But the shop I was at did not have any in stock and I couldn't wait for parts shipment. I want to know if there's a size made that will fit my Concours, or what the next best tire recommendation for the Concours application with the same ride qualities as the RoadSmart IIs? We did a lot of twisties/curve carving in the Ozarks on this last trip and I experienced "squirrelly" patches on the Dunlop K701 (120/70 R18 front, with approx. 13k) & K707 (150/80 R16 rear, with approx. 8k). I will be changing out at least the rear tire over this winter "break". I just hope I have more options than the OEM specific tires.
Thanks for your help and advice.
A shopper on Oct 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have tried three of the popular sports-touring tires and have the following thoughts (in order of preference) :
Dunlop RoadSmart 2: excellent turn in (tire has good shape), smooth ride, great performance in the wet and the longevity close to other two, although odd 'whining sound when cranked over towards end of life"

bridgestone bt023 GT - stiffer ride than the other two, but excellent durability, wet weather performance 3rd and had confidence in its handling. Cheapest by far.

Michelin Pilot Road 3 - smooth if active ride, amazing wet weather performance and longevity was good. However, in hot weather, front tire felt unstable under very hard braking. When it first came out, people loved it, but most of my riding buddies have moved away from it. Most expensive.
