Product Details

Metzeler Roadtec 01 Motorcycle Tire

The Metzeler Roadtec 01 Motorcycle Tire features enhanced grip on wet and low friction surfaces, increased mileage, and a high degree of adaptability for todays sport touring machines and all conditions.

Features

  • Higher wear resistance, obtained through a revised land/sea ratio on the rear tire in conjunction with the new tread design, ensures product performance consistency allowing users to enjoy the tire for its entire service life.
  • Increased grip on wet roads, with a focus on low friction surfaces (such as city streets and worn tarmac, low temperature), thanks to radial position of grooves.
  • Rebalanced tire stiffness to allow a better adherence of the rubber with the tarmac micro-asperities, increasing mechanical grip even on lower friction surfaces.
  • Increased mileage vs. Roadtec Z8 Interact (up to 10%), thanks to a different footprint shape (larger and shorter) which also enhances motorcycle handling
  • Metzeler multi-compound rear on selected sizes, with increased harmonization between the different compounds
  • Belt and carcass tension parameters upgraded to increase stability on rear tires during strong braking.
  • HWM (Heavy Weight Motorcycles)special version available to improve performance on motorcycles requiring them.
  • Tubeless (TL).
  • W rated for speeds of 168+ MPH

Paul R on Aug 7, 2019
Looking for a good tire to replace my Metzler Z6. From the reviews it sounds like this is a good tire although a little pricey. I have always run Metzlers on my 20002 BMW R1150RT. Good tires for all types of riding.

dwayne h on Aug 4, 2019
Picked these tires because I wanted a matching set for a 1985 suzuki gs700es. I did research on these tires and am confident they can out perform what the suzuki is capable of. I will write a review when I have them mounted and put some miles on them.
William m on Jun 14, 2019
Because I feel confident with Metzler motorcycle tires had them before , I rode my best on Mulholland Hwy , they really hook up , excellent gripping !!
Gordon M on May 4, 2019
Have had great experiences with Metzeler tires, going back to the M3s, M5s & M7rrs. Looking for more mileage on my sports tourer.
Dave B on Apr 27, 2019
Has good reviews.
Mark V on Apr 27, 2019
Highest rated touring tire that I could find. Have had good experience with Metzelers in the past.
Peter J on Apr 25, 2019
Needed to replace the Pirelli Phantoms on my 2016 Triumph T120. They stick on the dry but look out when things get wet. I know Metzeler has a good wet road reputation. Was going to stay with the Pirelli originally as the handling was great. Hopefully the Metzelers will handle just as good or better.
Tony W on Apr 17, 2019
Always have had great performance from Metzeler
don k on Apr 9, 2019
Only tire that has a great speed rating in my sizes for my old Suzuki GS1150ef
Charles M on Apr 6, 2019
Best tire for my R1200RT. Good in wet and dry, not squirrely like Mich Pilots that wiggle on hard up and downshifts, and less prone to flats. Just never take your bike to Home Depot, their lots are full of screws and nails. Wears well too, as long or longer than Bridgestones, Dunlops, Contis, other model Metzelers and Mich's. I have tried them all.
bill in Denver on Mar 13, 2019
Used before and like the results
rich k on Mar 12, 2019
By the reviews! I think this will be the right pick at this time.
Terry L on Feb 21, 2019
Researched different tires over and over. I hope all the hype about these tires are true. With as many great reviews online and YouTube, I’m sure I made the right choice. Ride, handling, rain and dry traction, longevity, cornering, braking and cold weather since I live in Colorado all seem to check out. I’ll get back to you in a couple thousand miles. It won’t take long as much as I ride.
Robert D on Sep 7, 2018
well reviewed
chris g on Mar 17, 2018
It shows great review and compares to the best millage tire on sport touring out performing it on every way and being faster, looks like the right choice for the money
George on Jan 4, 2018
Sounded like the right tire for my 2014 Honda CTX 700 I've had good luck with Metzeler Tries
P A on Jan 1, 2018
Had the PR4gt and wanted something with more grip in dry as it doesn't rain much in las vegas
Bogart B on Dec 16, 2017
YouTube reviews all placed this tire at or near the top of the list. They also were looking at the things I am concerned about: less-than-ideal roads; dry grip; wet braking and tread life.<br /><br />I also had Metzlers on my previous bike and really liked them
Jeffrey M on Nov 13, 2017
My 5th BMW & MY 10TH SET OF Metzeler I have never had an issue, not one great mpg and super tread life
mark p on Aug 27, 2017
Been a solid performer in street duty application on my 2016 BMW R1200GS WC
Roger54 on Aug 13, 2017
I wanted to buy the Roadtec 01 tire because the reviews on the tire performance was what I was looking for. Had Dunlop but wanted to try a different brand.
Kevin D on Jun 20, 2017
BMW Owners Magazine gave a good review of these tires.
Bobby B on Oct 12, 2016
Because I trust on Metzeler tires and if those models are new, must be more reliable.
fevemon on Sep 21, 2016
I've been riding on Metzeler Tires for 40 years.
James S on Sep 5, 2016
Good rider reviews. I've installed ME880's on several cruisers and been happy with them. I'm sure I will like the new Roadtec 01, also.

What is “w” versus “hwm”?
A shopper on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The W is the speed rating of the tire, this means that you can safely run the tire at 168 mph. The HWM stands for Heavy Weight Motorcycles, for touring motorcycles.

So far, so good.
Both are 2018 vintage, according to the age code. They are newly installed. Shipping was timely. Tires rated properly & working fine, on my '86 Suz GS 1150. Fixed the wobble apparently caused by my old tires. 100 Miles hasn't even worn the tits off, so the rubber is of good quality.

Love the tires as this my third set. 1st two sets on an 2003 BMW R1150RT good mileage great handling did well in the rain. This set is on a 2009 BMW R1200GS..so far so good. The only complaint which isn't much of one is according to the serial numbers on the tires the front one showed up on my door step and is already 4 years old, the rear is 2 years old. At the time of purchase Bike Bandit had the best price and tires showed up in good time

So nice.
Only put a few hundred miles on these. Mounted on a Ducati Hyperstrada. The originals were cupped and not completely street tires.
Night and day better. Very steady and confidence boosting. Wet roads are a non issue.
Hoping for good milage.

Excellent Non-Radial Tire
This was one of the few tire choices available for type and size to meet manufacturers specifications for my 1983 Kawasaki ELR. They exhibit good traction and handling.
