Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Front Tire
Good edge grip and predictable.
The tire has good grip, but wears out quickly. I only had 2,700 miles on the original tire that came on the bike before it was down to the wear bars. I own a 2014 YZF R-1. Must be the low end grunt that wore it out. The front has held out good. Bought another rear as to not mix tires.

Not a good wet tire
I did Deals Gap and Wolf Pen Gap in the rain on these tires on my 11 R1 in B mode. I was uncomfortable the whole time. I wasn't pushing at all and the tires were noticeably slipping in any kind of wet or dampness while cornering. I had to change my cornering to early apex and stand the bike up on exit to not get high-sided or lose the front end. They are a fine tire for dry and slight bends in the road. I wouldn't recommend them for aggressive corners or the wet.

Q2 is where it is at.
I only have this on my front tire and I immediately want to get it on my rear. I feel safer on my bike now if that is even possible with this tire. Would I buy this again? You bet your gum drops.

Dunlop Q2 I'd a great tire.
The Dunlop Q2 is a great tire with amazing grip. I averaged 8000 miles on my old Honda CBR600f4i and 7000 miles on my current Honda CBR1100XX. I only wish in Q2 got better mileage.

First and foremost, I ride a 2012 Yamaha R1 Raven. These tires are amazing! I've ridden 100mph in the pouring rain on the interstate and these tires never lost traction. They do nothing but inspire confidence! On the rear tire, I got 6,373 miles out of it before the wear bars appeared. The front was still good to go. However, I replace tires as a set and I decided to go with the Pirelli Angel GT's because they say they'll last twice as long and the reviews and videos of them are simply amazing. I just installed the Pirelli's and the bike is way more sensitive on turn in and the traction is amazing. Can't wait to run these babies in and see what kinda mileage I get out of them!

The Dunlop Q2 is an outstanding tire and would recommend it to anyone. The tire will perform under extreme stress, heat, cold or even wet conditions not to mention the excellent performance while cornering. I have had about five sets of Q2's and not one has ever let me down.
Downside to the Q2's. I run at 33psi and I only get between 1500-2500 miles on the rear before a new one is needed, and about 4000-5000 for the front. For the price, I don't mind the constant change.
Overall and outstanding tire.
