New ratings for Dunlop dirt tyres

Two of Dunlop’s highly durable off-road tyres have been updated with new legal classifications which will really be a benefit if you enjoy a bit of off-road action on a dirt bike or a big adventure trailie.

The Dunlop D952, a tyre designed for recreational off-road use, has received ECE R75 certification which means it can be used legally on the road as well as on tracks, saving a lot of hassle. The new categorisation has been granted to four of the six sizes within the D952 range, so the road-legal sizes of this hardy tyre are 110/90-18 61M, 110/90-19 62M, 120/90-18 65M and 80/100-21 51M.

Designed to work across a wide variety of terrain, the D952 is based on a high-durability construction that promotes long wear and supreme traction. Its pattern is derived from the popular D752, while the addition of road legality further highlights its status as a perfect tyre for off-road leisure use.

If the bikes you take off-road are bigger adventure machines then another significant development within Dunlop’s extensive range is the application of M+S (mud and snow) marking to all three sizes of the D908 RR enduro tyre. This means this road-legal dual-sport/desert pattern tyre can now be fitted to bikes with a higher top speed than the tyre’s speed rating, opening it up to an even wider range of machinery.

So now bikes like the Honda CRF 1100L Africa Twin Adventure Sports, Yamaha’s 700 Tenere and several KTM models ranging from the 250 EXC all the way up to the 1290 Super Adventure R can be equipped with Dunlop’s D908 RR in its updated M+S form.

The exceptional durability of D908 RR, stemming from its rally-raid competition roots, provides unbeatable performance on the toughest riding surfaces including sand, rocks and hard ground.

We are trying to ensure a broad range of Dunlop tyres will be on show at the Overland Event in September, but for now, click here for more info on all of the tyres they offer.
