I ride so much street and do about 15 track days a year and these tires are absolutely the best! I have been using them for 3 years straight, I highly recommend!

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.
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
