Product Description

  • Please note: Tire sizes vary by ride, please check your current tire and wheel sizes before placing the order. If you have any questions, please call Customer Service at 1-866-677-7338.
  • The new Q2 incorporates race-tested advancements that add up to a vastly superior tire equally at home on the street or the track.
  • Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology intuitively allows the rider greater latitude in line choice while cornering and provides amazingly linear steering no matter what shape, speed or camber the corner, and at all lean angles.
  • Radical new profile puts down a bigger footprint at extreme lean angles while also allowing greater lean angles and higher corner speeds to provide substantially better grip and handling.
  • Dunlop's advanced Multi-Tread technology combines the benefits of a tough, long-wearing center compound for increased mileage with a special lateral-grip compound on each shoulder for superior cornering traction.
  • New carcass construction includes newly designed continuous hex beads that are both lighter and stronger to increase cornering stability.
  • Q2 rear tire features a newly developed, stiffer version of Dunlop's Jointless Band (JLB) construction that utilizes a continuously wound aramid belt for reduced carcass distortion, plus stiffer overall construction to meet high-performance demands and provide a more consistent contact patch.

Q2 200/50/17 Rear Tire

MotoSport had a great sale price and got the tire out to me very quickly. Dunlop Q2's for spirited mountain riding on the street and occasional track days are the best tires I have used. I have ran and tried most all the other brands and the Dunlop Q2's are the best for me, and by far the Cheapest !

Stick Icky

I have a lot faith in this tire. My first track day was on this tire. I had maybe 2k miles previous road time on the same set before I had the track day and they still had great grip. I would estimate the life time in the medium range. There are videos available on-line you can search for that will explain the science/technology used to create this tire. Material is easy to understand and common sense. Some will say this tire rides slower than other brands/models but I would say thats just confidence issues that person was having when trying something new. I personally like the tread patteren for that "what if" situation when sand or other small debris some how become a problem.

Good track day tire

A good track day tire. Good grip. Wears a little faster than the Michelin SC2's, though, which have comparable grip. I ride a 600.

Q2...NOT IMPRESSED

Let me start by saying, I have a 09 GSXR 1000, 6000 miles on it, been riding for years, and I dont do burnouts. That being said, this tire wore out after 2200 miles. Its a dual compound tire and it lasted HALF as long as the OEM bridgestone battlax that came on my bike. The Q2 warms up ok, grip is great when its dry, not impressed with wet traction...or the lack there of I should say. If you live in the desert, dont care about mileage, and never get caught in the rain...this is your tire! I'll never buy another dunlop tire. I'm going back to pirelli. Q2=FAIL

Dunlop Q2

I went from the Dunlop Qualifier tires to the new Q2 series after some research and comparison to the Diablo Rosso tires. I can tell you I made the right choice. These tires seem stickier in the turns and provoke confidence in the overall ride. Wear in the center seems longer lasting as well. After 2000 miles I picked up a nail hole so I find myself buying a new rear. But make no mistake, a Dunlop Q2 is going back on my ride.

NICE!

These Q2s are excellent! Went up to a 190 on my 750, and I can totally feel the difference. Plus the bike looks better with a little more meat on the rear end, if you know what I mean ;) These tires also seem to be very sticky in the twisties and so far are a nice upgrade from my pilots. Good on the track also.

Good Rear Tire

I ride a ZX12R and this was the original rear tire, so I haven't had really anything to compare it to other than my current 190 Michelin Pilot rear. Had 11,000 miles roughly on the rear before I replaced it to try the 190. Tire still had plenty of side tread left though the middle portion was starting to flatten out from my longer trips. Definitely would purchase another if your looking for a 200 size tire as it seems to handle as good as the Pilot I have on now so far. I'm not huge at hammering the throttle at each light or really carving hard in the corners but I'm guessing the tire could go a good 15,000 miles before it was NECESSARY to replace. Fairly cold tire, so you'd want to ride on it for a little bit before you went flying into a corner as the first few miles I'd end up spinning the tire accelerating hard out of the hole.

What speed rating does this tire have?
MotoSport Staff Expert
Over 4 years ago Location: USA
it has a "Z" rating which reflects the highest tire speed rating, in excess of 240 km/h or 149 mph. The tire size will usually tell you the tire speed rating (example: 200/50 ("Z" <== speed rating) R17).
