A big congratulations are due to our tyre partners here at Franklin Motorcycles, Dunlop tyres who have just received the “KTM Supplier Quality Excellence Award”. The Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM has presented Dunlop with its Supplier Quality Excellence Award. The European manufacturer rated Dunlop as an A+ supplier for the 100% perfect supply of motorcycle tires in 2016.
KTM is currently the fastest growing motorcycle manufacturer in the world. In 2016, KTM sold more than 203,000 motorcycles worldwide with their KTM and Husqvarna brands. 2016 was their sixth record year in a row. Many KTM models are equipped with Dunlop tires including the XC, XC F , XC W and XCF W. The SX and SX F models also are factory fitted with Dunlop.
Sister brand Husqvarna also choose Dunlop for the Husqvarna TE, FE, TC and FC ranges.
“I am very proud of this award. – said Xavier Fraipont, Managing Director Motorsport and Motorcycle EMEA – It confirms the outstanding quality of our Dunlop tires and our high service level. At the same time, it demonstrates our ability as a team to work together and deliver best quality products and services to our customers.”
KTM models are fitted with Dunlop Geomax tires, including the latest World Championship race winning MX-3S and the AT81. The Geomax MX3S has become a proven MXGP race winner on a variety of bikes due to its outstanding grip in a wide variety of terrain thanks to its block-within-a-block tread knobs. This, coupled with superior bump absorption through a damping control sidewall compound helps the innovative MX-3S act as a suspension component so the tyre can better follow the track surface.
Her at Franklin in our service centre we are more than happy to look after all marques of motorcycle and that includes fitting award winning Dunlops to whatever you ride, even KTMs!
