Smart tyre choice from BMW for new superbikes

Celebrations, no doubt, at Dunlop HQ, after the tyre brand sealed a new OE tyre supply deal with BMW Motorrad. The Bavarian firm will supply its new 2023 S1000 RR with Dunlop SportSmart TT rubber, alongside the current fitment to the firm’s limited edition M1000 RR WSBK homologation superbike.

The TT tyres have been proven in battle, with Dunlop claiming that they share many of the technologies used on the firm’s race tyres at the Isle of Man TT and the Endurance World Championship. On the S1000 RR, the recommended fitments are a 120/70 ZR17 front and a choice of 190/55 ZR17 and 200/55 ZR17.

Miguel Morais, OE manager at Dunlop Motorcycle Europe said, “We developed SportSmart TT to give riders reassuring and fun handling on the road along with race tyre-like performance on the track. As such, it perfectly complements the philosophy of the new BMW S1000 RR, which similarly links back to BMW’s own motorsport heritage and success. We’re proud that BMW chose Dunlop SportSmart TT as an original equipment fitment for this exciting model.”
