– Dunlop Elite 3

Also known as the E3, this new tire delivers improved performance and longer wear in a radial construction tire for big road bikes such as the Honda Gold Wing, Valkyrie and VTX1800, plus a bias-ply model for all of the major touring motorcycles and large cruisers.

Touring Radial/Custom Wide

The new Elite 3 radial line of tires revolutionize the touring and custom
bike market.

 

FEATURES

  • New range of radial touring tires deliver great mileage and handling for all big radial-shod touring motorcycles.


  • Wear resistance is now substantially improved with more even-wear characteristics providing increased mileage, plus great traction.


  • The new E3 tread pattern provides class-leading wet-pavement performance, even while riding through large puddles of standing water.


  • New tread pattern is not affected by rain grooves, steel bridge decks, or tar stripes, resulting in less front-end hunting and more consistent feel.


  • The E3’s sport-derived profile provides a livelier response in turn transitions and a solid feel through turns for confident cornering.


  • Includes extra-wide 250/40R18, with good looks and great handling and performance for custom motorcycles.
