The new Q2 incorporates race-tested advancements that add up to a vastly superior tire equally at home on the street or the track.
Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire intuitively allows the rider greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides amazingly linear steering no matter what shape, speed or camber the corner, and at all lean angles
Radical new profile puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles while also allowing greater lean angles and higher corner speeds to provide substantially better grip and handling
New carcass construction in both the front and rear tires includes newly designed continuous hex beads that are both lighter and stronger to enhance steering response in the front tire and increase cornering stability in both tires
Q2 rear tire features a newly developed, stiffer version of Dunlop’s Jointless Band (JLB) construction that utilizes a continuously wound aramid belt for reduced carcass distortion, plus stiffer overall construction to meet high-performance demands and provide a more consistent contact patch
Excellent all around tires
I have ridden 500+ miles in the rain and at least 1000 in dry conditions and they heat up quickly and I never felt like I was losing any traction. No track days on them so can't speak about track performance but for street these are a very well balanced tire.

Awesome traction, not made for insane tire life. I will keep buying these until I can't find them anymore.

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.
