“great tire and value”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by ScarletCrawford (1 review written)

I have these on my 99 ZRX 1100. It is a heavy super-bike with 125 hp at the rear wheel. On my 3 rd set now. Last set I got 16,400 km and I do like using the wrist. In the rain I am very confident while inflating 32/36. They do not require more than 1 oz of weights… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2011

Put a rear tyre on today due to puncture (on the motorway = misery), replacing the OE Bridgestone Battlax BT56 - what a difference. I knew the Battlax wasn't up to much but this tyre has transformed my bike (GT650R). Unable to comment on longevity as its brand new, but the handling is fab. To compound my misery, it rained all the 35 mile journey home so can report the grip is pretty good in the wet, too!… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2009

Fitted the Z6 Interact tires around 4000km ago and they're still as good as they were when they were worn in. I've ridden them through the New Zealand winter and they offer ots of grip in the wet and loose shingle that they spread on NZ roads during the icier months. Can't wait to give them a good thrashing over the summer!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2009

I've had the Metzeler Roadtec Z6's (not the Interact version) on a TDM900 and a BMW K1200RS and the tyre has been excellent on both. The BMW will cause a bit of slip if you gun the throttle in second in the wet (I think most tyres would) but other than that it's great.

The difference in handling on the BMW over the fitted 020's was incredible. It's turned the bike into a much more rideable one, it seems like a different bike to me.

Wear is good on both bikes, not having wear indicators in the… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2009

I've tried Z6, Bt-020, BT-021, PR2 in the sport touring class, with Pan European 1300, FJR 1300 and GTR 1400. I think they're the better tyres in overal.

They lack a bit of grip in dry and hot roads comparing to BT-020, BT-021 or PR2, but they're the best in the wet, they're very confident and the stability at high speed is superb. The all new Z6 INTERACT will be placed tomorrow in my GTR 1400. With more 35% of silica, they should be the BEST… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2009 by jneedee (2 reviews written)

I'm not sure what you guys have been doing but I have Roadtecs on my YZF600 and they are TERRIBLE! Sure some tires are better for some bikes than other but these absolutely stink for the YZF! The other day in the rain at low speeds it nearly dropped it 3 times. And I mean low speeds. I've owned probably more than a dozen bikes in my life, with over 2 decades of riding experience and have tried many, many brands of tires. This is the second set of Metzlers I've owned (the first ones were by… Read Full Review

Sounds like they're fitted the wrong way round?

Written on: 25/05/2008 by n16elc (2 reviews written)

The Metzeler Roadtec Z6 is a hard wearing tyre but in my opinion inferior to the Bridgestone 020 in the wet when fitted to the BMW RT. I think the rear needs more grooves on its centre. Then they could also apply wear indicators… Read Full Review

I agree. Have a BMW R1200R and have almost fell my @#$& off three times now on a wet road. My GS has Battlewings on and don't seem to have the same issues.
I'll give these Metzelers a wide berth when replacing tyres

Written on: 08/02/2008

I've always had performance tyres on my 06 r1 but due to travelling 500kms per week started to get expensive the Metzeler Roadtec are great in dry conditions and lasts a lot longer than sport tyres easily.... When your doing 1000kms a fortnight this is a great alternative to sport/performance tyres. Took time to get confident on them though so far I reckon you can probably get double the kms compared to sport tyres!… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2007 by smudgek3 (1 review written)

I've only done 900 miles on the Metzeler Roadtec Z6 so far but they don't look to have lost anything. I replaced my Dunlop d208's which were much stickier but not as grippy. Sounds weird I know but I've done the sames speeds round the same corners on both tyres and on powering out the d208's slide out way earlier than the Z6's well pleased so far just the initial layout was expensive… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2006 by Peer (1 review written)

The Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Tyre seems to give approx 12000km on rear on BMW at mostly 180km touring speeds. I suggest Metzeler changes design to incorporate just a few tread depth indicators. It would save many stranded bikers shouting abuse at back tyres! Until then I will not be replacing with the same tyre. I can play safe and replace now, but I don't like wasting tyre life/mileage just because I cannot guess residual tyre life… Read Full Review
