Dunlop has announced the introduction of a new rear touring tyre to its range of high performance motorcycle products. The D407T has been designed in cooperation with Harley-Davidson to deliver strong, secure handling in all conditions.

The tyre will be fitted as original equipment on all 2014 Harley-Davidson touring models featuring black sidewall tyres. The D407T also fits all 2009-2013 Harley-Davidson touring models.

The new D407T introduces Dunlop’s second generation touring technology that features multi-tread (MT) technology to deliver hard-wearing centre compound with high lateral grip compounds on each side. The tyre has been designed to optimise performance and deliver more mileage than its predecessor without compromising handling and grip.

Mark Sears, Dunlop’s Motorcycle Product Support Manager; “We have a long and successful partnership with Harley-Davidson and we are very pleased to incorporate our latest technology into the new generation of touring tyre. The Multi-Tread technology allows us to ‘tune’ the tyre to match the specific requirements. While maintaining the key performance of the D407, such as the great grip and handling, the ‘T’ offers more mileage for Harley-Davidson owners.”
