Writing about the Dunlop StreetSmart
Driving on a combination of roads
for 8000 average
Since my beloved Pirelli Phantom became unavailable, I've mostly used Metzeler, since there were few alternatives for my old Suzuki GSX 1100.
However, when I read about the new StreetSmart tyres from Dunlop, I knew I had to try those.
Now I've been driving for a few years with these, in all thinkable conditions - heavy rain, dusty roads, highway/motorway, uneven surfaces in Ukraine, the Caucasus, Volgograd, etc - and right from the very first trip I knew this was THE tyre for my motorbike!
They're perhaps even better than the Phantoms were. They gives confidence in their grip anytime and anywhere, they're the most comfortable tyres I've ever used, and their wear rate is definitely acceptable. Last summer I drove some 12-13,000 km with these, with heavy luggage through the Balkan, Turkey, Georgia, Chechnya, Dagestan, Volgograd, Ukraine, and Poland. They give 100% confidence during braking, heavy rain, fast cornering, etc.
I can't recommend these tyres enough! Thanks Dunlop, for making such tyres for my Suzuki!
