So there’s a NEW RoadSMART 2 as well? I apologize. I never once considered that possibility. That’s very confusing on their part. Sorry for mucking it up further.

What I've learned from this thread:

1. Most any modern, name-brand tire will be at least 'OK'
2. Dunlop SERIOUSLY needs a marketing manager who will name their products more clearly

Just yesterday I was trying to find reviews on the new Roadsport2 as its so cheap - $120 vs $190 for a 190/55 rear as both my bikes have been eating through sport rears in 1500-2000 miles.

Just get the Roadsmart II...they're are proven to last and stick good enough for loosenut on or rides. I'll be riding up Mines this Sunday. I'll be leaving Livermore around 9:30-10:30. I'll be at the Junction until about 11:30...then heading down Del Puerto Canyon and back.

I run the RoadSport 2 on my Aprilia Tuono and my ZX14....absolutely great tire...performs just as well as the twice the price sport tires...surprisingly i got 4K miles out of a rear which is better than what i got out of my Pirelli Rosso 3’s...
