Dun­lop GP Racer D212 £275 a pair

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

Dun­lop’s new GP Racer D212 will give

se­ri­ous track­day rid­ers and club rac­ers a chance to en­joy top-level tyre per­for­mance with­out the has­sles that can go with full-on com­pe­ti­tion rub­ber. Re­plac­ing the cur­rent GP Racer D211, the new GP Racer D212 is based heav­ily on the French firm’s D212 GP Pro su­per­sport tyre – it­self a treaded ver­sion of the KR106/8 racing slick used in Moto2.

The GP Racer D212 shares the D212 GP Pro’s ba­sic con­struc­tion, fast-steer­ing char­ac­ter and tread pat­tern. How­ever, it comes in new, friend­lier multi-tread com­pounds that aren’t as track and tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive as a racing tyre, so there’s less chance of the dreaded cold tear that can ruin a tyre in a few laps.

Tyres will be avail­able in a choice of two front com­pounds (Soft and Medium) and two NTEC rears (Medium and En­durance) in both slick and treaded va­ri­eties. Sizes: 120/70-17 front; 160/60-17, 180/55-17, 190/55-17 and 200/55-17 rear. www.dun­l­op­mo­tor­cy­cle.eu

Not as sen­si­tive as a nor­mal racing tyre
