Since becoming the Original Equipment tyre partner on their Sportster® and FL models back in 1983, Dunlop and Harley-Davidson have built an unrivalled and iconic relationship. This relationship was cemented in January 1998 when Dunlop signed the first Master Supply Agreement in Harley-Davidson’s history. Together, we’ve developed tyres for almost every Harley-Davidson built in the last 35 years, offering countless riders the world over the ultimate in style, performance and endurance, wherever their journey leads. Take a look at the timeline opposite to follow 35 years of innovation and excellence.
Developing The Perfect Tyre
From introducing the Wide White Sidewall on the Heritage Softail® in 1992 to the launch of the Sportster® 72 - the first Whitewall tyre on XL, we’ve made sure every tyre that’s left the Dunlop production line sporting that distinctive Harley-Davidson branding has pushed the boundaries of what riders can expect in terms of both looks and handling.
Introducing Multi-Tread Technology
Years of success in global, Endurance and GP championships have resulted in the development of a pioneering technology of mixing compounds. Known as Multi-tread technology, the process of combining compounds has meant that Dunlop could produce a tyre that has a long-wearing centre flanked by lateral grip compounds which in turn enhances traction at high lean angles. And the journey’s not over yet…
