It’s fact. The highly respected Performance Bikes magazine has rated the latest Dunlop GP Racer SLICK D212 as the top tyre in test of five brands.
It all happened at Europe’s fastest racing circuit - the demanding Rockingham Motor Speedway in the UK. The magazine put the tyres to the test using the 9-turn National Circuit for its combination of heavy braking zones, long traction areas and corner sequences. It’s some mighty test for the tyres ability to handle quick direction changes!
The slick versions of each manufacturer’s latest track day offerings were tested. Then feedback was gathered from two expert riders - neither knew what make of tyre they were testing. We’re talking about no less than the racing legend Chris Walker, World Superbike race winner and John McAvoy, Performance Bikes Road Tester. They both used the Kawasaki ZX-10R for the test.
“This tyre instantly transformed the front end and made the ZX-10R turn in like a full blown racing super bike!” Chris Walker.
McAvoy agreed, giving the tyres (GP Racer SLICK D212) 10/10 in this test.
Both test riders gave the Dunlop GP Racer SLICK D212 their top score for mid corner performance. “Tracked its line perfectly”, claimed McAvoy.
“Loads of feedback, loads of confidence…the front turns so quickly and grips so much that it feels like a video game,” high praise from McAvoy
