Dunlop launch new American Elite range

Dunlop presents new American Elite  – featuring MultiTread technology

- Designed to set new standards for handling, mileage and comfort for Touring Motorcycles such as the Harley Davidson® FL range

- MultiTread Technology for mileage and grip

- Whitewall options provides American style

Dunlop has introduced the  new American Elite™ tire to the European market.  Dunlop’s research had shown that European riders of American-style  Touring and Cruiser motorcycles were demanding an increased amount of cornering grip and handling – without any compromise on mileage.

To satisfy these demands, Dunlop designed the new American Elite with Multi-Tread™ technology, providing a combination of hard-wearing centre compound with advanced lateral grip compounds on the shoulder area of the rear tyre.

The American Elite is available in 9 front sizes and 13 rear sizes to suit a wide range of Tourers from manufacturers such as Harley Davidson, Victory and Indian.

Whitewall Option to provide American style

Owners of American style tourers can choose the sidewall style that best suits their bike.  Several of the sizes are available with either a full or narrow whitewall option for that classic styling look.

Andy Marfleet, Marketing Manager, Dunlop Moto Europe, explained the reason why Dunlop had moved to MultiTread technology: “Our MultiTread Technology has been well received in our European track and road tyres, helping tyres such as the latest RoadSmart III set new standards in durability and performance. By adopting similar technology on a tyre for custom models and more specifically American bikes it offers improved durability , greater lean angle, better stability, more wet grip, more neutral steering characteristics and improved comfort.”

The Dunlop American Elite is now available from Dunlop Motorcycle dealers across Europe.
