Moto2, Moto3 Tire Supplier Dunlop To Introduce Different Colored Slicks In 2014
The two lower classes of the motorcycle world championship, Moto2 and Moto3, "will ride with different color-coded tires this season," according to the SID. Dunlop, which is the official tire supplier of Moto2 and Moto3, "will supply, in addition to rain tires, slicks on which text and background of the tire labels are displayed in different colors." The color-coding "will make it easier to identify if the rider chose a soft, medium or hard compound tire." Yellow background with black text will mean soft, silver background with black text stands for medium and a black label with yellow text means hard (SID, 2/19).
