BMW picks Dunlop SportSmart TT for new S 1000 RR

BMW has selected the Dunlop SportSmart TT as an original equipment fitment on its new 2023 S 1000 RR.

The new upgraded S 1000 RR features a whole host of updated features and sits alongside the even more race-orientated M 1000 RR, which was launched in 2020 and also has Dunlop SportSmart TT as an OE fitment.

The SportSmart TT’s NTEC RT technology allows for its rear pressure to be lowered for track use, giving more grip by enlarging the tyre’s contact patch.

Its Speed Vent Tread, meanwhile, is a tread groove pattern that opens and closes when the tyre turns, improving heat dissipation.

On the front tyre, a revised dynamic mould profile gives the rare balance between lower steering effort and optimum turn-in grip, delivering enhanced feedback and confidence when braking and turning.

On the new S 1000 RR, the Dunlop SportSmart TT is approved in a 120/70ZR17 front fitment and two rear sizes: 190/55ZR17 and 200/55ZR17.
