Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Motorcycle Tire

Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Motorcycle Tire has unmatched tread life, thanks to the combination of carcass, compound and tread design. You can expect a totally balanced performance during the entire life of this tire. Metzeler's CMT (Contour Modeling Technology) combines different profiles to optimize handling at all lean angles. The patented 0° steel belt technology provides stiffer a carcass for perfect balance of performance for one- and two-up riding; minimized stand-up behavior under mid-corner braking situations. Up to 20% dry grip improvement (over the ME Z4) thanks to Finite Carbon Matrix, a new carbon black compound structure. W-rated for speeds up to 168 mph.

Great reviews and my current back tire needs replaced badly.
Brian M on Aug 18, 2020
Matches my current rear tire and is on closeout. Original rear tire on my NC700x wore out within 3000 miles. Roadtec Z6 seems to be holding up better.
Al S on Aug 15, 2020
I have this tire on all of my other bikes. It works very well.

Tread life
Warren B on Jul 18, 2020
These tires are recommended by Yamaha. Very few tires have a speed rating of 168mph so it is imperative that I get the best. I don't plan to exceed 125mph; but in passing a semi truck/trailer in the desert, I don't want a tire to explode.
BikerSailor on Jul 16, 2020
I already run these tires on 2 motorcycles and they work really well. Plus the price is awesome!
ChrisP on Jul 15, 2020
I've read several positive reviews for this tire.
Donald D on Jul 11, 2020
Because I love the brand
Leslie R on Jun 11, 2020
I have had Metzeler tires on a number of my motorcycles with no issues with riding in the rain, long distances, or tire wear. Why change when it works for me?
Wayne P on Jun 1, 2020

Entusiast on Apr 27, 2020
Best combination of performance and durability at a great price.
Donald W on Apr 24, 2020
Researched, price was a factor as well as quality.
Urb on Apr 21, 2020
Read alot of reviews and they seemed to be a good tire that will be good in wet/dry conditions. Also alot of reviews were getting 8-10k miles out of these tires so the durability was another huge factor in picking these. I cant wait to get them i hope they ride as well as they look on paper!!!
Forrest M on Apr 15, 2020
I have a BMWK1200LT and have always used METZELER tires (OEM). Decided to try the Roadtec based on good price and strong reviews.
Mike F on Apr 11, 2020

Doug S on Apr 9, 2020

Darrin D on Apr 6, 2020
Seems like I get decent mileage from this tire. I did have a flat at one time, the design of the tire kept me on the road. That in itself speaks well for this tire.
gary a. p on Mar 31, 2020
Good lower price on this model tire that I never tried before, so I think it is a good opportunity to try this tire
Jeffrey R on Mar 31, 2020
I have ridden these tires before and was satisfied
Jim M on Mar 14, 2020
The tires got good reviews and the price was very reasonable.
Y E on Mar 9, 2020
Had great luck with Metzelers for years then waited too far into the season and they were out of stock. Running Battlax for the last 3 years (3 tires- I like to ride). OK but liked the z tires better. Lasted 2-3K miles longer.
Robert V on Mar 4, 2020

Mark B on Nov 20, 2019
These are great tires for an adventure bike. Most any road except deep sand. And, they are steel belted.
Tim K on Oct 29, 2019
Match the front tire on the bike.
Jeff T on Oct 1, 2019
Same tire that was on the bike before and I was satisfied with it.
Gail A J on Sep 12, 2019
Not my favorite tire - a bit too 'greasy'. However, I want to keep a matched set on my bike (R1100RS) for selling it, so here I am buying it again.
Stephen J on Aug 21, 2019
Metzeler is the brand that has been recommended to me and I wanted a middle of the road priced tire on the bike that is good and high quality but not top of the line
