Dunlop to supply Harley-Davidson XR1200 Cup

Brit tyre giant back in BSB with new Harley deal

DUNLOP is back in the high-profile British Superbike meetings, as suppliers to the Harley-Davidson XR1200 championship for the coming season.

The Birmingham-based company already has close links with the manufacturer through its supply of Original Equipment (OE) Qualifier tyres for the road-going version of the XR1200. Dunlop was also the chosen supplier for this year's one-off Italian Harley-Davidson XR1200 race event.

The manufacturer will provide a full factory race fitting service at each of the ten races across eight events on the 2009 British Superbike Championship calendar. Dunlop has also pledged to give each entrant to the series a full set of D209 GP Racer tyres, one front and two rears, free of charge for the opening event at Brands Hatch on 11-13 April and the final race at Silverstone on 25-27 September.
