Product Description

The 190/55 KR449 slick is being discontinued. 

Good news! it's being 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 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2018

    Bought a new set didn't even need them lol.. my old set (over a year old, and 3rd full weekend with racing) ran the whole weekend and got me from 7th to 4th in a 6 lap sprint race ! Looking forward to the new set next weekend in Vegas

  2. lower track time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Dec 2017

    These tires are phenomenal. Once you dial in the air pressure for your riding style and weight, these tires stick like glue at extreme lean angle. Just bought another set.

  3. Won't run them until next year. 4 Star Review

  5. Holds the S1000RR 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2017

    Slipped on this set before a trip to Laguna Seca. Warmers off and hit the track with the fast folks and these held up well to the constant abuse. I go out from the first minute and ride until the checkered flag drops so I put max wear on a set of tires. These took everything I threw at them an ran like glue all day long. Great set of tires.

  6. good value 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Nov 2017

    For the price I’m very happy with the tire. I’m run middle group at track and the rear will last me about 3 trackdays.

  7. Great tires 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    Ran these at barber and they worked great. They were predictable and constant the hole weekend. I had been running Michelin evo and I couldn't get a weekend on them before they started to slip that on 1.8 mile track with 10 turns. I ran hole weekend on the Dunlops at barber and they were just amazing tire. They still have good life in them

  8. Sticky 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2017

    Unreal grip new and all the way through the wear indicators.

  9. Excellent, affordable tire combo for racing 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    The KR449 rear tire is amazing grip under heavy exit throttle. The front provides amazing feedback under braking and does so without becoming squishy.

  10. Grippy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2017

    I have riden several brands of slicks and keep coming back to Dunlops.
    They've given me the confidence to get lower in the corners keeping the seconds off the timing and that makes for a great weekend at the track whether racing or a fun track day event, I won't ride anything else.
