Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Rear Tire
Awesome traction, not made for insane tire life. I will keep buying these until I can't find them anymore.

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.

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.

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!
