    The all-new Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ offers more longevity on the street and the track, plus more grip, stability and steering feel. More than 80-percent of the Q3+ has been redesigned compared to the Q3.
  • Only hypersport tire made in the U.S.A., the Q3+ was designed at Dunlop’s Buffalo, NY headquarters, and manufactured in the Buffalo plant on the same high-tech production equipment as Dunlop’s racing tires.
  • Dunlop’s Huntsville Proving Grounds is the only motorcycle tire test facility of its kind in North America, and the Q3+ was tested extensively at Dunlop’s Huntsville Proving Grounds as well as several racetracks in the U.S.
  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) employed in the Q3+ uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel.
  • Aggressive Q3+ tread pattern uses minimal tread grooves that are long in length to enhance wet-weather performance.
    Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the Q3+ rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering.
  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the Q3+ rear tire uses a silica-infused, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for longer tread life, and special lateral grip compounds on the left and ride shoulders for outstanding grip.
  • The all-new Q3+ offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track.

My Q3+ experience on a 1290 Superduke
I won't speak for longevity or mileage for touring, because these tires spent most of their time in the corners. No experience in the wet either. I've put 2 hard track days on these so far (in the advanced group), and they exceeded my expectations. I run slicks with warmers on my 701 SM, so I took it easy on the SD with the Q3+ Dunlops. Warm up was very quick in 75-degree weather. One lap at 50%, and then full throttle until the end of each session. I expected the 180-hp bike to overpower these DOTs, but they held their composure impressively. The front was predictable and stable even under very hard braking from 140mph. The rear let me slide it a bit with the traction control dialed back, but no hairy moments. I ran 31F and 29R Psi cold. I didn't notice any separation between the 2 compounds I have read about. These get 2 thumbs up from me.

Nice peaky tire for great cornering
Tried getting an easy handling tire for my FZ09, but several different tires I tried (s21 Bridgestone and Diablo Rosso) were too flat of a profile and made for heavy handling. The qualifier put it back to a bicycle like feel with super light handling. Grips really well too.

Loved the preexisting tire, it retains all the good qualities of the q3 and adds a little for about the same price can't beat that.

Great Tires!
Just spooned these new Q3+ and I am very impressed with the performance. I went up a size in the front and didn't lose any turn in. These are very stable around corners and very confidence inspiring. I had Q2's and really liked them and feel the same way about the new Q3+. Haven't put a lot of miles on these so I cant say much for tread life, but if I was worried about that I would have purchased touring tires. Hopefully I can get these out on the track and really see what they could do...

Dunlop for the Win!
Best overall tire. I commute everyday and it the canyons every weekend. They heat up quickly and most importantly they stay hot. It's an aggressive tire, every corner feels controlled. This tire never fails to impress me. The added longevity is an improvement.

Better than the original
This tire is definitely better than the original Q3. If you liked that one you'll love this one. It has more traction and last longer.

Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ - fabtastic tire.
I bought these following a Dunlop presentation at the Jett Tuning / Ultimate Motorcycling track day event. The Dunlop tech impressed me and the on-line reviews convinced me I should try them instead of my go-to tire, Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa. So far, I am very impressed. If I didn't know they were Dunlops, I would not know the difference. These are mounted on my KTM Super Duke R. I ride mostly canyons and street - so I cannot attest to their track-worthiness. However, I'll definitely be trying them on my track bike in the future.
