ANOTHER FIRST FOR ROADSMART III

Dunlop’s revolutionary sport-touring tyre, RoadSmart III is no stranger to success in competitor comparisons. Now, arguably the most compelling endorsement yet comes with top spot in the recent tests conducted by Germany’s highly respected Motorrad magazine.


On the island of Corsica, six leading tyres were put through their paces and rated on a number of different criteria. As you’re about to discover, the RoadSmart III went from strength to strength as the testing progressed.

“With grip to spare and very good agility, these
truly are very sporting tyres,”

“There’s absolutely none of the usual slow turn in
we’ve often found on many Dunlops.”
