Buffalo, NY: Dunlop introduces the all-new D605™, a DOT-legal knobby that fulfills the needs of dual-sport riders who tackle serious off-road terrain. The D605 joins the popular D606™ in Dunlop’s line of dual-sport tires aimed at small and mid-displacement bikes, and is targeted at value-oriented customers.

The D605 features a full-depth tread pattern designed for rigorous off-road use, and offers excellent traction on everything from hard-packed fire roads to soft single-track trails. A tire equipped to go anywhere, the D605 is a great all-around tire and provides riders with a more affordable alternative to the premium D606.

That front looks like a Bridgestone Trailwing.

I think the photochop artist put the wrong tyre on the wrong rim in their promotional pic above (regarding width, diam looks about right). Wonder how many committees that went through?
