    Dunlop Sportmax Q2 Rear Tire

    Equally at home on the street or the track, the Sportmax Q2 rear tire is bred from years of racing experience to deliver ultra-aggressive grip and handling in all conditions. For serious sport bike riders around the globe, the Sportmax Q2 is the tire that brings performance to a whole new level.
    • Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire intuitively allows the rider freedom to pick his line while cornering with ease and provides positive 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
    • 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
    • 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

    Great tires

    My 2013 Yamaha FZ-1 came with Sportmax Q2's. After 4000 miles, the rear was almost done. Probably would have made it to 5k, but I was going on a trip and replaced it. Just got back with 1200 miles on the new tire and it looks new. The front, with 5500 miles, still looks ok. I've been really happy with the grip and handling from these tires. Like riding on rails. Good in a downpour, too! I'll probably try something different next time to see if I can get more life out of them.

    Dunlop Q2, good bang for the buck!

    Rubber disappeared on my Q3 after 7800 highway miles. My commute to work has variety of twisties and highway turns. MSS shipped the Dunlop Q2 quickly and reliably. Q2 has lot of bang for the buck!! Drove GSXR with Q2 front and rear tire on it. Q2 has solid traction and cornering. Feels solid!

    Dependable Tire

    I just had this tire installed and so far, so good. Great traction and sensitive handling. Highly recommend.

    Q2 Dunlops are great

    I ride them on a BMW R1150R. They handle amazingly well both dry and wet. They corner, stop, and accelerate like no other. The rainy season just ended here in Guatemala, and I had no issues throughout it, no slips, slides nor scares, riding to and from work in every kind of rain and every type of road. They have lasted over a year already: 2 rainy seasons and a long dry season. The roads are not U.S. quality, and the tires show normal wear. I`m going to continue with Dunlops, but perhaps change to Q3 when the time comes, only because they are the next thing better to Q2.

    Q2 is great

    My Tuono had these from the factory and I loved them so much I bought again to replace. Dual compound really works; the tires don't 'square up' like most do. Can't rate wet traction. Rear tire was used up in about 4000 miles but that's acceptable for a tire with this much traction.

    The Q2 gives you more confidence in your approach to a corner - thereby resulting in a consistently satisfying riding experience.

    Brilliant

    I have had these on my 2010 Z1000 for a little while now. The wear on them is proving to be really good in the center area. I just spent a week at Deals Gap and the surrounding areas and these tires performed great. They allow for incredible lean angles with no slipping, even to the point of the right peg feeler touching. They are pretty used up on the sides. I would love another Q2, but will be moving up to the Q3 after reading all of the great reviews on them.

    Great tire, sticks to the road

    I finally replaced my rear tire on my 2007CBR. I took the bike on a 30-mile ride and it felt so much more stable. I was able to ride with confidence as the tire literally sticks to the asphalt. On the way back there was little rain but nothing major so I can rate it on the rain. I hope this "sticky" behavior remains. Not sure about the tread life as I just put it on. I like it though and I am considering replacing the front tire with the same brand. Wish there was a package deal though.

    Great tire, better value!

    Love this tire, after the first 50 miles (which is a bit slick so no horseplay) it is a wonderful tire and a great price, thanks a bunch!

    Better than the sportmax

    Ive been running the sportmax and really like them but the tread life sucked. I was going thru one or two each year. I can already tell the Q2 has better life, and seems to have kept the awesome traction Ive come to love. Great price, fast delivery. I will get my next set here!

    best tires ever owned

    The tires will have you grinning at the end of your ride. I put these tires on my 2010 zx10 and hit bank head national forest in Alabama. The moutain roads put my tires and bike to the test and these tires way over exceeded my expectations. The rear tire only lasted 4k miles though with no track days just riding hard on the weekends but I do highly recommend I will buy again.

    Good tire

    I used to be a Michellin junkie (2CT & Pure). I've ridden about 1000 miles on this tire and I think it is better than the Michellin counterpart. I feel more confident in full lean position. They are similar to Michellin when it rains as I fish tail on it from time to time when I gas too hard but it holds up well. I will probably be buying these again or moving up to the Q3s. All in all good quality tire.

    2nd rear

    Second Q2 on the rear of 675 street triple. Last Q2 lasted 1500 miles including 5 track days (and one 200mile tour in the rain). They grip great once up to temperature. Put this tire on the rim Thursday, and was on the track on Friday. No sliding, no odd behavior, good turn in, complete confidence in these tires. Motorcycle Superstore got the tire to me quickly so I could have a good tire Friday. I WILL use both Q2 (or maybe Q3) and Motorcycle Superstore again.

    Sticky mofo

    Prices on this site are awesome, can't beat them anywhere around here. Tires are exceptional, for grip and response. No premature wear from hard cornering and thread seems to be lasting so far 2500km and still good for some more abuse.

    Awesome Track Day Tire!!!

    I run in the B group with NESBA. I've logged a total of 4 solid, full trackdays at VIR South and VIR North on these tires as well as over 400 street/highway miles and I still have 6/32s left on the rear! This is a great tire!! Instills insane confidence in the corners and they heat up extremely fast. I used tire warmers for my 1st track weekend and went without the warmers on the 2nd weekend. ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE WAS NOTICED!!! This is a GREAT TIRE!!
