Dunlop Introduces New Harley-Davidson Tires for 2018

In 2017, Dunlop Motorcycles Tires achieved an amazing
milestone; more than 10 million original equipment tires built in Dunlop’s
Buffalo manufacturing plant have rolled off the Harley-Davidson assembly
line since Dunlop became an original equipment supplier to Harley-Davidson
in 1983.

For the 2018 model year, even more Harley-Davidson motorcycles will be
fitted with original-equipment Dunlop tires thanks to the expansion of the
Dunlop® Harley-Davidson® Tire Series.

The new D401T 150/80B16 rear tire features MT Multi-Tread™ technology that
uses a long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for longer tread
life, and special lateral grip compounds on the left and right shoulders
for outstanding grip. The new D401T comes in black sidewall only, and is
standard equipment on the 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Bob, Harley-Davidson
Slim, Harley-Davidson Heritage Classis and Classic S. It also replaces the
existing D401 on many other Harley-Davidson models, giving owners of these
motorcycles more performance in a Harley-Davidson/Dunlop co-branded tire
option with MT Multi-Tread.

The 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob and Fat Bob S will come with Dunlop’s new
D429 front and rear tires. Utilizing an aggressive scrambler-like tread
pattern developed by Dunlop in conjunction with Harley-Davidson, the D429
features a computer-optimized tread profile to help promote even wear. Like
the D401T, the D429 features Harley-Davidson/Dunlop branding on the

Dunlop is the only tire company designing, developing, and manufacturing

benefits all Harley-Davidson riders.
