I love these tires! I've only been on the highway once with them and was able to do some cornering with ease. Good grip!

I just got this tire put on about 350 miles ago and the bike feels great at handling. It grips up very nice out of turns and gives the rider a better sense of control over the bike. Overall a very good tire and highly recommended.
I have been using matching sets of Dunlop Z rated tires on my 1991 ZX-11 Ninja since the D201's came out in 1992. After using the D201, 202, 204, 205, 206, 207, and then the Q3 Sportmax...I have to say that they were all great tires. I ride in some of the worst weather around (Idaho), and I ride in snow/ice/rain/wind all year around. These tires work great!
Way better than Diablo Rosso and better than the Q2"s that I've ran many times. Great ride if you like to ride the rails
My buell came with dunlops, wich were fairly worn but I got used to the profile. I tried other brands with different profiles but they felt uncomfortable. I went with the Q2's next and they were a vast improvement.
But now the Q3's are my favorite choice. I push these hard on the track in the intermediate group without the need for warmers and I don't even bother balancing them.
Great in wet weather too. But know these are not high mileage tires nor are they strictly racing tires. But they are a great tire for the money.
I bought a set of Dunlop Sportmax tires for my BMW RT. Here I am, 3,000 miles later buying a new front because of excessive road noise caused by cupping of the tread. Rear tire is wearing flat in the center of the tread already too. I expect to replace it this summer too. But these tires if you like changing them every 6 months or they're a safe bet if you don't ride at all. On the plus side, they do hold air.
Their sticky right out the box. Really do give you more confidence coming to a turn and much more feel of the road over other tires.
Put a set of these on my 2003 CB919 Hornet and turned it into a completely different bike. Super sticky, perfect roll from side to side and even rides decent in the wet. They wear evenly and have exceeded my expectations when it comes to tire life (thought they were gonna wear out super fast). If you have a motorcycle, and you like to go around corners, buy them.
This tire is the truth for both track and street
At the track, I get 55 degree of lean angle in confort and the speed is very close to my Pirelli sc2 but i also get to burn the life left on the street for 4000 miles plus. Thats a deal
Excellent grip looks good and its light made with carbon fiber layers I give it 6 stars.
REALLY LIKED THE Q2 THESE ARE EVEN BETTER ! 3RD SET OF Q3
I drive a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R. I was able to squeeze 7,000 miles out of the tires, though they were way over due and very unsafe.
These new Dunlop tires ride like a dream. I haven't really pushed them to their limit yet, but so far they handle very well. After riding on a bad set of stock tires it has altered my riding perception. I am starting to trust these new tires and put them through some moves. It feels great to weave in and out of traffic jams with confidence. The new tires have really elevated my driving experience.
A really important factor that I forgot to mention is that these tires are made in AMERICA. As an American I feel it is my duty to buy as many American products that I can afford. Americans should support Americans......it's the American way!!
Great service and fast shipping! Thank you!
Best purchase of tires i made. Out the box sticky am inlove withe these tires
I have ridden on Dunlops all my life. These are by far THE best yet.
The heat up quickly, I feel no sidewall flexing when I pitch it into a corner. I do not drive this bike in the rain so I can not help with a wet tire review, but dry conditions, this tire is FANTASTIC
These are some of the best all around tires. For doing track days, riding wheelies or just an evening cruise. I'd suggest to anyone the Dunlop Q3.
Have these on ktm 625 supermoto , both fz09s and my buddy's sv 1000, no question we'll be replacing with the same. balance well, very good traction even before reaching operating temp,
heat cycle well without getting hard after 30 rides or so like others,
But we also have to replace after about 1500 miles, so ask yourself what you want,,,, hard and slippery (aka chicken strips)..... or soft and sticky with a limited life expectancy
some things in life are worth the money.... if your reading this your looking at one
Got these tires in two days from Motosport, had the m installed at a local shop. Bike corners harder, sticks to the road, and feels stable on all surfaces. Even in the rain the Q3s grip. Love these Tires, will buy again.
Not much else to say if you want a better street tire you have the supercorsa but you pay more and get less mileage. These actually do alright in the rain too, I've only taken it easy in the wet though..
have ridden sportmax at the track for years but i prefer these on the road and for limited track days, not as many choices on heat ranges as track tires, but these are not as picky about being up to temp before they hold power
