Dunlop introduces colour markings for tyres
Tuesday, 18 February 2014

Dunlop, the official tyre supplier for the Moto2™ and Moto3™ World Championships, is to introduce new colour markings on its tyres to make for easier compound identification.

As well as its Wet tyres, Dunlop produces Soft, Medium and Hard slick compounds for use in the intermediate and lightweight classes of the World Championship.

Starting with Moto3™, new colour markings will be displayed in order to ease the task of identification for fans and media alike. Dunlop will do so by marking the text and background of its tyre labels with various colour combinations.

“We have changed the sidewall decals,” explains Clinton Howe, Dunlop’s MotoGP Operations Manager. “It will help to see which tyres the riders are on. We have the Soft, Medium and the Hard which will be coloured differently on the sidewall.”

The Dunlop colour combinations for slick compounds will be as follows:

Soft Yellow background (with black text)
Medium Silver background (with black text)
Hard Black background (with yellow text)
