With 36 years of shared history, it seems only natural that Dunlop has announced that they will be a partner of Harley-Davidson’s 2019 European Bike Week.
Held in Faaker See, Austria from the 3rd – 8th September 2019, the event is the largest motorcycle festival in Europe.
This five day event will include a number of activities to entertain biking enthusiasts including a H.O.G ® (Harley Owners Group) zone and one of the biggest parades of Harley-Davidson motorcycles seen in Europe. Last year, more than 10,000 bikes joined the 20km parade along some stunning Alpine roads.
Dunlop will be based right at the heart of the Harley-Davidson village throughout, showcasing their latest Harley-Davidson tyre range in a tyre fitting area that replicates Dunlop’s World Championship paddock presence.
A free set of tyres will also be up for grabs each day, with Dunlop holding a ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Women of Steel’ strength competition.
Samantha Nardi, Brand Activation Manager Dunlop Motorcycle Europe, said:
“After nearly four decades of working together, Dunlop and Harley-Davidson continue to push the boundaries of performance and grip. Harley-Davidson’s modern and heritage bikes are fitted with Dunlop’s specifically designed tyre range. These are chosen to give the bike increased durability and improved grip to match the unique characteristics of these iconic bikes. We are delighted to be part of the European Bike Week giving us the opportunity to meet thousands of passionate riders.”
Dunlop’s extensive range of tyres include the recently launched D429 for the Fat Bob and Fat Bob S and the D407/D408 tyre combination. This is the perfect example of the long standing partnership in action, with the two tyres being created alongside Harley-Davidson’s engineers to produce a high performance, pure grip road tyre for the Street Glide and Softail models.
