Product Description

The 190/55 KR449 slick is being discontinued. 

Good news is it is replaced by the KR451 slick, which is a much better product, providing higher levels of grip, better lap times and a wider range of compounds.

We highly recommend switching to our newer sizing:

On a 600 with 5.5 rim, use the 180/60 Order Here
On a 1000 with 6.0 rim, use the 200/55 Order Here


The KR451 is superior in every way, and there is no down side to switching.  The KR451 comes in a MED+ compound, just like the 190/55 KR451 giving equal durability.  Additionally the KR451 is reversible (flipable) so you can get even more laps out of the tire when using it for track days.

We highly recommend converting to the new tire on your next order.

As a second alternative, we would suggest the Q4 180/55(for 600s) or 190/55(for 1000s) as a suitable replacement.  You can match it with a slick front or  Q4 front.  But our primary recommendation would be the KR451 as the corner speed, lap times and overall grip level is much better.

  1. Awesome tires 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Oct 2015

    Great tires. Feel great all day, even in the pucker moments. Only felt a little greasy when it's was 109 with no wind lol, but still an ungodly amount of grip. Highly recommend to anyone, I promise you will not be let down.

  4. Track Fun 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2015

    I have been running Dunlop K449 in the true medium but the price for this medium + was just too good to pass up. I'm just doing laps at Inde Motorsports Ranch on my built S 1000RR where I am a member, so I thought the medium + might give me a few more sessions. I didn't notice any lack of grip over the medium, but I was also taking it easy on a bum knee the only day I've ridden on the tire. For play at the track, this is terrific deal.
