Dunlop Roadsmart IV Rated ‘Very Good’ in Motorrad Magazine Test

Dunlop RoadSmart IV has been recognised by leading German magazine Motorrad as ‘Very Good’ in the publication’s latest motorcycle tyre test, earning particular praise for its feedback on country roads.

Dunlop’s premium sports touring tyre again impressed Motorrad’s testers in this spring’s test (issue 06/2024) for a third consecutive year. This time, six tyres in sizes 120/70ZR17 front and 180/55ZR17 rear were tested on a BMW R 1250 RS.

This comes after similarly strong results in tests in 2022 and 2023, when the same tyre sizes previously won Motorrad’s 2022 touring tyre test, while the tyre in the long-distance touring specifications with a 19-inch front impressed last year.

Motorrad’s testers particularly praised its feedback on country roads, noting that: “The special distinguishing feature of the Dunlop is its very light-footed handling… sporty riders will be impressed by the good grip and, at higher speeds, by the good feedback.”

RoadSmart IV also impressed in wet conditions, earning a ‘Very Good’ rating: “Grip in the wet combined with light-footed handling results in good lap times in the wet test. The limit area is announced early, the traction is above average and makes it an easy-to-assess tyre in bad weather.”

This dry and wet weather performance combined to earn Dunlop the magazine’s ‘Kauftipp’ (‘purchase recommendation’) rating for ‘country roads and everyday life’.

Roberto Finetti, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Motorcycle Europe: “This test success for Dunlop RoadSmart IV by one of Europe’s best regarded motorcycle magazines underlines the capabilities of our premium sports touring offering. RoadSmart IV is designed for a wide variety of bikes, with a particular focus on providing reliable and confidence-inspiring feedback on European roads when riding every day or on long distance road trips.”
