The tyre industry has moved on leaps and bounds. We all know rubber technology has been at the forefront of many bikers minds. That’s why tyre manufactures are getting innovative to meet increasing demand to supply the best pair of motorcycle tyres.
With our increased research we found Metzeler is a name to give serious consideration to. Here’s a bit about them: They have manufactured motorcycle tires since 1892 with development of innovative tread designs. The guys at Metzeler have one main focus
“Our mission is to continuously develop products on the cutting edge of technology to meet the needs and expectations of motorcyclists’”.
Nearly all their staff are enthusiastic motorcyclists. This means they know the real needs, expectations and the necessities of riders.
We got our hands on a pair of ROADTEC™ 01 We decided to get our Senior Road Tester to put these wheels through their paces testing them on his Yamaha XJR1300.
Here is Nick’s account of the tyres so far. Expect to hear more as he gets some more miles under these tyres.

The time has arrived to try out Metzeler’s new 01 sport touring road tyres; on with the new
“Don’t you Just love looking and touching new rubber”
After only a few miles I can sense the tyres already feeling at home on the local roads, now to get a few more heat cycles into them before I can test them properly. The ROADTEC™ 01 feature an increased mileage, obtained thanks to the profile, compounds and structural elements used in the making of the tyres.
Having the tires fitted to replace my Road Piliots there was a serious feel of grip through the corners, there was no wobble or tire squeal. This on a big muscle bike putting down serious torque is a welcome benefit.
They didn’t take long to bed in, the Metzeler’s now feel planted no squirming no movement just go where you want them to go,
“dare I say it they feel better than the road pilots” (which I thought were very good)
Just need to try them in the rain ……………..
Here is a great offer Metzeler are currently offering customers a £30 reward when they purchase and fit a set of either our Roadtec 01’s, Tourance Next, Sportec M7RR or Racetec RR
