The news keeps arriving out of MotoAmerica РNorth America’s new road-racing series spearheaded by three-time World Champion Wayne Rainey, the latest regarding the spec-tire supplier. MotoAmerica reported Friday that Dunlop will be the exclusive tire supplier in all four classes in 2015.

Dunlop KR448 and KR449 racing slicks will be used in the Superbike, Superstock 1000 and Supersport classes, and the GPA-Pro DOT tires will be used in the Superstock 600 class. The KTM 390 Cup machines will also use Dunlop rubber – Alpha 13s.

Dunlop out of Buffalo, N.Y., spent six years as the spec tire for the former AMA SuperBike series and all support classes.

“Dunlop has always been a big part of AMA Superbike racing and I’m glad they’re stepping up to do so again in 2015,” says MotoAmerica president Wayne Rainey. “I had great success using Dunlops during my career and they were a big part of my World Championship in 1991. I know our racers and teams will be happy to have Dunlops on their motorcycles for the coming season.”

Dunlop, who has been supporting racers and teams in AMA Superbike racing for 30 years, says it will offer the same tires used in the MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series to its club racers across the country.

“Dunlop has supported American road racing longer than any other tire company, and we’ve been the exclusive tire supplier since 2009,” said Mike Buckley, Dunlop’s senior vice president of sales, marketing and R&D. “Our commitment to the paddock has never been greater, and we’re very excited to extend our exclusive agreement into 2015 with MotoAmerica.”
