Read good reviews. middle ground as far as cost and what I am looking for in a set of tires.
Turbitt Z on Oct 12, 2016
Have had excellent results from Dunlop Roadsmart II this is my 4th set on 2 C-14 Kawasakis, an '08 and '11. I've wanted to try other brands; Michelin, Continental, Avon or Pirelli, but don't want to experiment. I gave up on Bridgestones; BT021 and BT023, they get squirrely after about 5-6 K miles on the C-14, but worked well on my ZRX1200.
Kawirider on Sep 23, 2016
Good road wear - mostly commute in city traffic. smooth ride and handles well
George H on Sep 11, 2016
Price and fitment. The bike I have limits my choice of tire that works for both touring and sport riding.

These tires work well in good weather and bad, and have held up well with aggressive riding.

Robert B on Jun 5, 2019
How good are these tires?
A shopper on May 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They're excellent for my bike. I ride a K1300S, sport touring MC. These tires have gripped in the tight Twisties and held up .. little to no chicken strips. I've put 7,000+ miles on them in all weather conditions and they show minimal wear. Including a trip across central Nevada in summer on some Twisties when I thought for sure they'd show significant wear and stress. Nope. Nothing but what you'd expect for routine mileage. I recommend these tires.
How good are these for cornering in dry conditions? I like to get the bike LOW
Logan c on Jun 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I just bought one of these tires but haven't mounted it yet. The current version they are selling is made in Thailand by Sumitomo.. I currently have one on my FZ1 that is about worn out but it was made in the USA a few years ago. I was so impressed with the performance that I decided to buy another one. I think they stopped making them for a while cause it was competing with the Roadsmart III. If it is the same formulation as the USA made one I think it would be a fine for most sport riding which is what I do.

UNBIASED REVIEW

I've ran quite a few different tires (Street, Track and Sport Touring) depending on the surface I am riding on and with the seemingly endless research I did on these tires; I bought them for longevity and riding style. I found a handful of users who had more than 3-5k+ miles on these tires with proof. More in depth details below:

I bought these tires for the riding I do for the bike I put them on- 600RR. Thus being said, I mainly ride hard in the twisties or mountain riding. The compound is nice and they seem to be wearing perfectly IMO. They warm up quickly and get very sticky when HOT. I've put 1,000 hard miles on the tires since I've had them and they are living up to the research I've done, as well as living up to Dunlop's brand/name.

SEE PICTURES BELOW - last 3 pics are tires now (w/ 1,000 miles on them) ---> the first 2 couple are w/in the first 50 miles. You can see minimal difference besides the no longer "chicken strips" I once had.
Tires look AWESOME on my RR
Chicken Strips
3/16th of an inch chicken strips
good wear

So far so good
Replaced these on my 2004 Yamaha FZ6 sport tourer. So far it seems excellent compared to my old Battleax tires. Lean in feels great but I have not tried it on wet weather yet.

Perfect tire for commuting on sport bike hitting the twisties on the weekend
Ordered these for my sportbike because I wanted a tire that would last longer on the street than the dunlop q3 or pilot power sport tire. I am so far very pleased with the handling and ability to still get aggressive in the twisties. No need to buy sport bike tires unless going to the track. These tires are plenty sticky for aggressive street use
