I recently wrote Dunlop concerning the difference between the OEM 208s and the newer 208ZRs, and 208GPs. Here is their response.


Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding the original
equipment (OE) Dunlop D208. The new Dunlop D208 is an OE tire that has
just reached the North American market with the introduction of the '02
Honda RC51, the '02 Kawasaki ZX-12R, and the '02 Yamaha R1. The OE D208
is available in limited sizes (only those that fit these three vehicles)
and is not intended to be used as a general replacement tire, as are the
D207 RR or the new D208 ZR. The OE D208 should not be confused with a D208
GP nor the D208 ZR. The OE D208 is considered an entry level sport tire
with performance characteristics at levels below the existing D208 ZR.
Listed in order of performance and grip:

Supersport/Race Hypersport Sport OE

D208 GP D207 RR D208 ZR D208

I am kind of upset that I have done 2 track days on my 208Js (OEM), and pushed them fairly hard. One day was wet. I will never keep original tires on my bike. J
