Dunlop Adds Roadsport 2 And Roadsmart II To Sportmax Tire Lineup

Buffalo, NY: Dunlop has made two recent additions to its Sportmax® product line that benefit sport riders and sport touring riders alike.

The Sportmax line of performance tires covers a wide range of riders and uses. The sport lineup previously included the premium Sportmax Q4 track day tire, the Q3+ hypersport tire, and the value-friendly GPR-300. Now Dunlop has added the Roadsport 2, which fits in between the Q3+ and the GPR-300. The Roadsport 2 offers upgraded performance compared to the GPR-300 and is ideal for sport riders who want both performance and value.

In Dunlop’s sport touring line, the all-new Sportmax Roadsmart II joins the premium Roadsmart III, giving riders who like to travel on twisting backroads and through unpredictable weather another choice. The Roadsmart II is designed to offer versatile sport touring performance at an affordable price and complements the Roadsmart III, a more premium option for riders who rack up the miles.

These two additions to the Sportmax family cover a wide range of motorcycles, and give riders more affordable options, while delivering all the quality and reliability of the Dunlop brand.
