Information and Details about the Dunlop Roadsmart 2 Rear Tires - Sport Touring Z-Rated
made by Dunlop
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: linear and responsive handling traits, traction characteristics on par with sport tires, extended tread life and excellent wet-weather performance

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. Increased tread depth further promotes water channeling while also extending tire mileage.

Features:
  • The combination of tread patterns provides the balance between wet and dry handling
  • Radial carcass construction in the front tire that’s known as Flex Steel™-Jointless Belt® (FS-JLB)
  • The new profile intuitively allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides remarkably linear steering at various lean angles
  • IRP technology uses a steep “tread drop”—the height measured between the tread center and the shoulder edge—to put down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles for enhanced grip and handling

    Dunlop Roadsmart 2s - DucPIlot   MA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great traction, wet or dry. No squirm over seams and sealer strips.
    Cons: [None]

    I put a set of Roadsmart 2s on my Ducati ST3. These are replacing a set of the original Roadsmarts that had more than 15,000 miles on them. I hope to get similar long life along with the high performance of these tires.

    RoadSmart 2 Tires - Love2Ride   AZ Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great Mileage, Stick well in every condition & Neutral steering...
    Cons: none

    These are the best Dunlop Tires I've used to date. I ridden for 29 years and these tires do it all. Sport riding, rain riding & touring with gear, they just work well in all conditions Even at triple digits I still get well over 12K miles out of these tires The price is cheaper than the Pilot's. Even down to the wear bars they still preform like new They just don't seem to flatten out in the middle of the tread like most high mileage tires do... The side walls are stiff which I like, just in case of a rear flat you'll still be able to ride on the tire andor it won't come off the rim. Like other softer sidewalled tires, such as the Pilot 2's & 3's, which are also great tires but very soft sidewalls... Give them a try, you'll LOVE'EM

    Dunlop Roadsmarts - white rabbit   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: excellent mileage-average about 13k, cornering, wet weather,
    Cons: none

    I have been running the original Roadsmarts for the past 3 sets of tires and have loved them. I commute 60 miles a day, rain or shine. i have tried alot of different tires before and i have been very pleased with the dunlop roadsmarts. This is the first set of roadsmart 2's i have tried, and so far they are excellent. I have had them in 30 degree temps, rain, and we just have had a 70 degree day today. these feel even better than the regular roadsmarts.These tires will suit most all riders other than maybe a guy racing at the track. I have 36 years of street riding under my belt, i do not think you will be disappointed.

    Very good - Scott   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: long wear, great traction on the street both wet and dry
    Cons: None

    I have these tires on my Triumph Tiger 1050, the bike handles great and holds a line in a turn better than the Michelins and Pirellis I had on before. I also rode a 2000 miles in one weekend, mostly interstate, afterwards the rear tire showed very little centerline wear. They also work great on my Moto Guzzi V11.

    Dunlop Roadsmart II - DrB   OR Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great grip wet dry,very stable,hold line well,predictable turn in , great price
    Cons: none

    I have been riding now for 50 years on many other brands of tires but I always ended up back on Dunlop . For consistency, grip, road feel ,feed back and wear they are it for me. I ride a H-D Electra Glide Standard with Dunlop , and a Ducati ST I ride both bikes about 6k per year each with a mix of local runs100-200 mi up and down the coast , day rides over the mountains and back 500 mi and o'nite and weekend runs 1-2 days 1000 mi and at least one 7-10 day run to Northern Calif , Idaho,Mt or Wyoming every year . My Dunlops have never let me down .

    Great Tire at a Great Comp-A Price - GA FJR   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Outstanding Grip, Ride Quality, Value and Mileage.
    Cons: None yet...

    This is my 4th set of Dunlop Roadsmarts, and 2nd set of 2's, on my Yamaha FJR - I'm sold. New tires always or should make your bike handle and ride better, and these Dunlops do that, but that new tire performance of the Roadsmarts lasts longer than other brands I've tried. I consistently get 10,000 miles 1 year out of Roadsmarts before hitting the wearbars or experience any cupping 30 more life than other sport-touring tires I've tried. I ride briskly, rain or shine, hot or cold, corner with aggression and ride 3-4 long distance trips a year. Roadsmarts never surprise and never disappoint me. Be sure to follow Dunlop's recommended tire pressures. CompAcc's price 250 for the set and fast service can't be beat

    Compacc Tire Delv - Tiger   SC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: 2 Day Delivery
    Cons: None

    Got these tires at a great price in only 2 days Dunlop Roadsmart 2 Tire has a excellent reputation and replaced the PR2's on my FJR. The older Roadsmart tires on my Versys performed very well.

    Roadsmart II'S - Dragonslayer   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: [None]
    Cons: [None]

    This will be my second set of Dunlops Roadsmart II'S . I took a chance an tried a set of Metzeler Z8's and can tell you that those will never find a home on my bike again. My first set of RS lasted me roughly 4500 smiles and it was actually the front that went first. I am running these on a 2012 CBR1000RR if that matters. If you are looking for really high mileage returns you may want to look at the Michelin Pilot Road 3's. I just personally like the handling and feedback that these tires offer and since I own my own tire changer from nomar I am content with swapping tires a little more frequent.

    Love Roadsmart 2 Tires - Ron   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very good
    Cons: [None]

    Changed from Diablos on my GSXR to a pair of these after doing lots of reading on decent tires for the long wet and cold Vancouver winter. Done 1,000 km on them so far and WOW what a difference. So much more stability in wet and slippery conditions. They don't track at all over grooves in the road, and where as my old Pirellis used to let you know about every line or overbanding you came across, these Dunlops cruise over them with no charge in course or feedback. They really are incredible.

    Great tire for big bikes - MadDogXR   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Stick like glue
    Cons: Could last longer

    These tires work great on an XR1200 ridden hard. They have more stick than the bike can use. I can get about 5,000 miles from a rear Roadsmart 2. The original Dunlop Qualifiers on this bike were too soft and squirmed around under the bike on hard cornering. The Qualifiers held the road just fine, they just didn't feel as planted as the Roadsmart 2. The Qualifiers lasted about 2,500 miles. Are these tires sportbike sticky Of course not. But if you have a big, heavy sport-tourer or standard, these tires are probably as sticky as you will ever need.

    Dunlop Tires - Connie Rider   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy online ordering fast shipping great value
    Cons: None

    Purchased both front and rear Dunlop tires for our 2005 Connie. Easy online ordering coupled with fast shipping 2 days and a great value made this product a must consider for all Riders Look forward to ordering more from CA again.

    Great tires - Bishop   PA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grip well, smooth on the highway
    Cons: None

    These tire are specific to the Concours. They are multi-compound. I wish the center compound was a little bit harder to wear longer when doing a lot of highway riding. The side compounds are great and can handle quite a bit of abuse. The last two sets I have had of these tires, I have gotten 7,500-8000 miles each with more left on the front than rear. If you have a Connie, get these tires, they are great. If you get these tires, get them from CA. Great prices, and fast ShippingHandling time 40,000 miles worth of experience on these tires.

    Q3 - Tikiotool   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Good and consistent grip, good price
    Cons: None

    Mounted these to my '13 RSV4 and headed out to Buttonwillow Raceway for a track day. These tires performed very well and offered consistent and reliable grip. Even with ambient temps of 105F and track temps seeing over 135F, these tires performed great and with the right pressures looked very good and uniform after the day was over. These also perform well on the street and offer good grip

    Buy IT - Another incredible tire from Dunlop   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great traction and feedback from the tire.
    Cons: Still thinking....

    I had the Sportsmax Q2's on my bike and they lasted about 7500 miles. It was the best tire I had put on my bike up to that point. When they started showing threads, I got the Sportsmax Q3. Wow Dunlop still kept that incredible feel of the tire while making the sidewall stiffer. They don't need any warm up like a lot of tires before they start to grip. These are ready to go when you sit your bike. The stiffer sidewall really gives you more confidence to hit the corners and still get a ton of feedback from the bike so you can keep pushing it or back off a bit.I've only had the tires on for a few weeks but love having these on my bike.The only negative I can think of is when the tires were first put on, the initial rubber to burn off was very sticky. It increased the rolling friction and I was a little worried that I would lose speed or tread life on the tires. Everything is awesome after that little bit was worn off.

    Honestly, not that much better than the Q2, but... - MrCrashHappy   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grip, stability, warm-up time, wet grip, predictability, you name it.
    Cons: I never let convicted felons anywhere near my ride.

    I reviewed the Q2s. This tire is at least as good. My buds that race at Summit Point were rabid Q2 fans and they've switched to Q3s. I am a street hooligan and spend most of my high-speed fun on crappy two-lanes with no shoulder, so I need to have confidence in my tires. Pulled off another brand with at least 1K of tread left because it sucked compared to the Dunlops. Got my first Q3 and I couldn't be happier. Back to worry-free insanity. Even when they slip, there isn't any drama. All situations are within your reaction time to control. That's the way it should be. Hoop up, get crazy. You won't be disappointed.

    Just Great - Busa Dude   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: It last for EVER A mazing grip in good, bad and ugly weather. Superb handling.
    Cons: EXPENSIVE Really difficult instalation.

    I have had Road Smarts on my motorcycles since 2005. I am 300 lbs. and do ride very heavy bikes all year arround, wet or dry above 35 degrees. ZZR1200, Zx14, Hayabusa ect... . Not to mention my liking for back roads and turns at high speeds in warm weather. This has to be the most confidence giving tires I've had ridden on in 26 years of expirience. I'd just changed my rear tire at 11,000 miles and front tire still looks new. The only bad thing I have to say about it is, this are very difficult to install on the rim and they are not cheap. Road Smart were great. Road Smart 2 are awesome

    Stick it - 06 Honda VFR800   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grabs the pavement, smoother ride, confidence in deep turns
    Cons: None yet

    If you're an upright hwy commuter, those dual compound tires are fine. But for street gripping, deep turns, smoother ride and more confidence, along with better stopping power, you need sticky tires. I had a set of those Michelin dual compound tires and experienced rear tire slide when leaning deep and lousy stopping performance. I worried when leaning in a turn. These Q2 Sportmax tires brought all the confidence back so i can focus on the ride and not worry about 2 tires giving out on me when i need them most.

    Great Tires - TinyTiger   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: The tires have a lot of grip right from when you start riding.
    Cons: Nothing so far.

    These tires really inspire a lot of confidence even when you start off cold. I have a 2009 Buell XB9SX and have put a few hundred miles on the tires recently.You can lean into the corners knowing the tires will stick and give great feedback when you are pushing them.

    ill never own anything else - m18pilot   NC Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: long lasting, price, sticky, great for in town and back country roads
    Cons: none that I've found

    I'm on my third set of Q2s for my 2010 R1. Their shape is the best part it really helps you corner by putting more tire on the ground in the twistys. Really inspires confidence. The front will last about 6-7k and the back will last about 3k miles. Ive had mine up past 180mph and they handle the speed very well. Great grip in hard braking as well. Ive had them in the rain many times and of course youve gotta slow it down when its wet but they still always feel very solid and connected to the road. Ive taken them around curves and hit small gravel patches before and they are very forgiving. They always find the traction just like good tires should.

    Dunlop Q2 tire package - Nater-Bater   GA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Grippy even on wet streets
    Cons: They are expensive

    Don't skimp on tires or brakes, it does not matter how fast it will go if you can't grip the road or stop on a dime These guys have the best price on Q2s trust me I researched the piss out of it and hands down they have the best price on tires by about 50.00. My tires arrived at my front door in two days Great price, fast delivery, this is the hook up on tires

    Phenomenal tire - SkyDork   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Sticks like glue, handles great, good price
    Cons: Mileage

    I've been using these tires on the street and a couple of trackdays on my ZX-10R. They are simply awesome Very confidence inspiring and can handle just about anything you can throw their way. The trade off for all that grip is the mileage. I get about 2,500 miles of hard street riding before the tire is at the wear bars and it gets replaced. Small price though for the insurance of having these between me and the pavement. Definitely a great tire

    Track day tires that work on the street - Petethepup   VA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Price, quality, work on track
    Cons: None that I know of

    I bought the Q2s for track day on a BMW K1200R, so a heavy bike, 140 rear wheel HP. I don't use tire warmers, but they came up to temp in a lap or 2. No surprises in turns, especially under power exiting turns. On the street, they make for light steering. I don't expect great life, so no disappointment there. They were easy to mount, using a No-Mar tire changer. That is, the carcass is not too heavy & stiff, but they're not too weak, in contrast to the now gone thankfully Pilot Pure Powers.
