Dunlop's new D605 DS tyre

Looks legit.

https://adventuremotorcycle.com/news/dunlop-d605-50-50-dual-sport-tires-announced



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.

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?

Well spotted Pete. I scrolled straight past that picture without noticing until you pointed it out!

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.
