Motorcycle News makes Metzeler Racetec RR its 2015 Tyre of the Year
The Metzeler Racetec RR has been named ‘Tyre of the Year’ by Motorcycle News, having been ranked highest in the comparative test held by the publication at Jerez circuit earlier this year. In the test, the tyre was judged to be the “best sporty tyre” among products from five other manufacturers, lapping fastest at road pressures on track. The tyre tested was also the hardest of the three Metzeler Racetec RR compounds (the K3), designed for everyday road use and trackdays. Although road legal, the K1 and K2 compounds are intended for more pure track activities.
