totally brilliant tyre , I have had ,Pirellis, michelins , metzlers on my Ducati but none have matched the Q2 for stability, grip , cornering speed, i can get the bikes over further , and up to 15mph faster in bends ,no more head shakes either its like being on rails round bends  i am totally sold on them so soon all 3 of my Dukes will be shod with Q2s   nuff said

I'm a new rider on a cbr600fy and I need a new rear tyre for all weather riding all year round, would the dunlop sq2 be a good tyre for me?
