The new Dunlop 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
Dunlop’s advanced Multi-Tread technology combines the benefits of a tough, long-wearing center compound for increased mileage with a special lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for superior cornering traction
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
This tire is great.
Nice and sticky. Riding it for a year now with no problems

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.

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!

Great grip for the money
Grip is awesome and very predictable. Tread wear could be better...center of rear tire wore out kinda fast but not unexpected for a bike with lots of power!

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.

Curtis L: The Dunlop Sportmax Q2s are the stock tire for the 2012 Yamaha R1. The tire provides great grip with little movement at full lean. However, turn in is very slow. I purchased the rear tire only because I still have sufficient tread on the front tire. When both tires are worn, I will switch to the Q3s.
