Dunlop Motorcycle Tires are recognized as one of the best tire manufacturers in the world today. They are driven by innovation and cutting edge technology. Dunlop motorcycle tires combine a number of sophisticated tire technologies that allows every motorcyclist to get the most out of their driving experience. Most of the Dunlop motorcycle tires are designed in an asymmetrical thread that improves aquaplaning resistance, provides excellent road feedback, and gives steering precision.
John Boyd Dunlop developed the first practical pneumatic or inflatable tire for his son's tricycle, tested it, and patented it on 7 December 1888. Dunlop is the only company manufacturing motorcycle tires in the U.S.A., and given the company's storied 80-year history in Buffalo, New York, it is no surprise they have a world class testing facility. Dunlop's Huntsville Proving Grounds is dedicated to all types of motorcycle tire testing. No other tire company has the resources to conduct such tire testing in the U.S.A. - and that means no other tires are better suited to the specific riding needs. Tire development takes on many dimensions at Dunlop. Dunlop's racing efforts, for example, drive technology and innovation that is incorporated into new products.
