Motorcycle News has selected its ‘Tyre of the Year’, and again it is the Metzeler Roadtec 01. The back-to-back victory for the sport touring tyre, comments Metzeler, confirms the “excellent qualities” that the Roadtec 01 possesses.
Metzeler reports with pride that its Roadtec 01 has been voted the Best Sports Touring Tyre by Motorcycle News for the second consecutive year. The publication evaluated eight sports touring tyres at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, and published the results of this test in its 7 June 2017 issue.
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.
