Derived from the legendary D212 GP Pro - Dunlop’s Isle of Man TT race specification bloodline - the road legal GP Racer D212 delivers the kind of performance, handling and endurance that until just a few years ago was only available to factory backed teams.
Dunlop’s new GP Racer D212 will give serious trackday riders and club racers a chance to enjoy top-level tyre performance without the hassles that can go with full-on competition rubber.
Replacing the current GP Racer D211 (they’ll cost around the same), the new GP Racer D212 is based heavily on the French firm’s D212 GP Pro supersport tyre, itself a treaded version of the KR106/8 racing slick used in Moto2.
The GP Racer D212 shares the D212 GP Pro’s basic construction, fast steering character and tread pattern, but comes in new, friendlier multi- tread compounds that aren’t as track and temperature-sensitive as a racing tyre, so there’s less chance of the dreaded cold tear that can ruin a tyre in a few laps. They will be available in a choice of two front compounds – Soft and Medium – and two NTEC rears – Medium and Endurance.
