Posted by Daphne on 15th Nov 2021

Dunlop Launches RoadSmart 4 Motorcycle Tyre

Dunlop has revealed details of its most versatile sport-touring motorcycle tyre yet – the RoadSmart IV.

Using a mix of Dunlop state of the art motorcycle tyre technologies the RoadSmart IV has many talents. Increasing standards in handling and stability as well as wet grip and overall milage, this motorcycle tyre offers so much to the sport tourers.

Sport touring and beyond: a tyre for the road

When Dunlop sat down to make their next sport touring tyre, they thought of everything and everyone who could possible need it; traditional sport tourers, naked roasters, adventure bikes, crossover designs – even the hyper-nakeds! This was a motorcycle tyre designed to see and serve the world.

So does that mean if you’re a casual commuter the RoadSmart IV isn’t for you? Absolutely not! Dunlop designed the RoadSmart IV to be what’s needed in the moment, providing exceptional wet grip and superior dry performance, even after thousands of kilometres – the perfect blend of a rider’s perfect motorcycle tyre.

Flexibility and adaptability

Developed to fit 17 out of top 20 selling motorcycles in Europe, the Dunlop RoadSmart IV is one of their most versatile tyres yet. Available in the most popular sizes (120/70ZR17 front; 180/55ZR17 and 190/55ZR17 rear), Dunlop have also developed two distinct variants – the SP and the GT. The SP is designed for sportier, lighter roaders whereas the GT is built to provide superior handling to larger touring motorbikes. From adventure bikes like the BMW R1250GS, roadsters like the Yamaha MT, crossovers like the Yamaha Tracer, Kawazaki Z ranges or the larger tourers, Dunlop’s RoadSmart IV would be a welcome addition.

The next generation of tyre technology to get you from A to B

Featuring a full package of Dunlop patented technologies, the RoadSmart IV and all its fantastic variants are blessed with an innovative compound which incorporates four all-new grip resins as well as the JointLess Tread application for key sizes.

Just Ride with Dunlop

Luca Davide Andreoni, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Europe said, “Our research told us that road riders wanted outstanding wet grip, good mileage and confidence-inspiring handling. By bringing together a range of technologies, we’ve created a tyre that can cater for the demands of an incredibly diverse sector of riders and machines. Dunlop has a Just Ride philosophy of providing riders with unparalleled grip and protection, allowing them to have the confidence to focus on the joy of riding. By applying this mindset, we’ve created a new level of tyre in RoadSmart IV. It is a sport-touring tyre that goes well beyond the sport-touring segment.”

Top of the tyre tree

RoadSmart IV will sit above the RoadSmart III in the Dunlop range. RoadSmart III has won multiple awards including a ‘Recommended’ rating1 by UK magazine RIDE and a top mileage result from Germany’s Motorrad Test Center2. Both of these test results underlined Dunlop’s ‘stronger for longer’ mileage and durability focus which has continued with the RoadSmart IV.

RoadSmart IV brings Dunlop’s total range of RoadSmart sport-touring tyres to over 40 sizes, covering more than 700 models and 97% of the sport-touring radial tyre segment.
