If your bike’s going to be down for maintenance over the coming winter, this is as good a time as any to swap tires. Hitting the road on a set of fresh tread is a good way to dive back into the saddle after a hiatus from the cold. Dunlop’s popular Elite 4 was designed to fit hundreds of touring, cruiser and standard bikes, including current and non-current machines. And now the line has been expanded to include fitments for more than 35 additional popular cruiser and touring models ever sold by Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha from 1984 to 2014. These new sizes represent fitments for thousands of motorcycles on the road today.

All Elite 4 rear tires utilize Dunlop’s MT Multi-Tread technology with a long-wearing compound in the center of the tire and a lateral-grip compound on each shoulder, providing increased mileage without sacrificing handling. The tread pattern helps provide class-leading wet-pavement performance, even wear over the life of the tire, and less road noise.

With the Elite 4, you could cross the U.S. six times without needing to replace your tires. And with the modern technology utilized in these tires, they have the potential to improve the performance of older bikes with better cornering and braking grip, and a smoother, quieter ride than other tires currently available for these bikes.
