Tyre launches are usually just a chance to sample rubber on various bikes, but this Dunlop test was slightly different. Being part of their racer test, we shared the track with SERT world endurance champs), superbike teams from all over Europe, and the Honda TT Legends team, who were testing new Motec parts and preparing Michael Dunlop and John McPint for the 2013 season. After a sneaky brown envelope changed hands, I managed a 15 minute session on the Legends’ ’Blade. You’ll be able to read the full shimmy at fastbikesmag.com...We also got the chance to test the new KR106/108 slicks that are now ready from dealers, and feature the same Multi-Tread Compound Technology as the D212. The KR series is a bloody good trackday/race tyre.
