Dunlop MX51: OE Tires for Cobra Motorcycles

Motorcycle Tires

For years, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires has proudly served as the exclusive supplier of OE tires for Cobra Motorcycles, who supplies young motocross racers with 50cc dirt bikes.

Now that relationship expands in a new direction as Cobra becomes the first manufacturer to fit Dunlop’s new Geomax MX51 premium racing tire for global distribution as Original Equipment on its CX50 model.

Mike Buckley (Dunlop Motorcycle Vice President) says: "We are very happy to work with Cobra Motorcycles as they lead the industry in this new direction. Dunlop Tires and Cobra Motorcycles are both racing-driven, leading brands and it’s a natural fit to match these race-ready mini bikes with the newest Dunlop Geomax MX51 tires."

"Dunlop is an integral part of motorcycling at all levels including mini bike racing, and we are excited to bring our latest technology to the Cobra lineup. A number of our young Team Dunlop racers ride Cobra motorcycles, so we enjoy strong ties with their grassroots racing efforts."

For more than 15 years, Cobra has produced premium race-ready mini motocross bikes and steered many 50cc amateur riders to the top step of the podium at local, state and national level motocross events.

About Team Dunlop
The Team Dunlop program debuted in 2007 as a means to support select young amateur motocross racers who ride bikes displacing up to 150cc. Dunlop has historically supported thousands of amateur racers each year through the largest amateur program in this sector of the industry. Additionally, Dunlop serves as the official tire sponsor of all the major amateur OEM groups, including Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Cobra and Polini.
