Dunlop Announces Agreements With U.S. Road Racing Teams

Dunlop Motorcycle Tires has announced the teams in America's AMA road racing series that have agreed to compete on Dunlop tires through the end of the 2009 season.

The teams involved include American Honda, Yoshimura Suzuki, Kawasaki Motors U.S., Yamaha Motors U.S., Graves Motorsports and Erion Racing.

With this agreement in place, Dunlop can continue to concentrate its focus on tire development in the AMA series, bringing to bear its technological resources for new tire development over the next two seasons. The development of Dunlop racing tires has a direct influence on the design of new and innovative products for street riders.

"The many years Dunlop has devoted to supporting AMA racing has resulted in superior tires and many championships, but perhaps just as important is the extraordinary level of communication and teamwork we enjoy with all these teams," says David Watkins, Dunlop Motorcycle Racing Manager. "With this two-year commitment, we now look forward to introducing more technological innovations and continued improvement in tire performance at the highest levels."
