Smile Dunlop Road Smart tires or Race Smart!

Has anyone out there got a pair of the Dunlop Road Smart or Race Smart tires on their SV650. I need a new pair of tires for my bike and these have been recomended to me by 'Wheel House Tires'.

If anyone has them id like to know what there like on bike.

Ditto that, read a good review in last months Bike mag and dunlop claim to give huge mileage and great grip at all angles. Not got the mag near me at the mo but they have been on my mind since reading it. how much are they asking for a pair?

I got some towards the end of last year, although not on an SV.

The dealer who recommended them, and also put them on his bike, said the version that came out middle of last year are mixed compound and are a brilliant tyre.

I'm happy

roadsmarts were recommended to me by the local plod trainer and are cracking tires. Cheaper than the bt's and storm 2's.

The grip is impressive and inspires some confidence in the stock suspension (if that is actually possible lol).

Just to throw into the mix - the D207e is apparently the same compound as the roadsmart but with the old D207 tread pattern. The D207e can be found quite cheap at the moment.

The D207e is a single compound version of the Roadsmart. I would assume it's the harder compound all round. This is no bad thing, but just to be aware that there is a difference.

i think they are the soft compound, which has been replaced by the D211 track tire

Wheel House Tires said £202 for the pair fitted, which i didnt think was to bad. The reviews ive read have all said great things.
