Product Details

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.

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

on sale, and advertised as a sport touring with long tread life. All reviews were 4 or 5 stars. I've ridden metzelers before and had good experiences.
Mkan T on Apr 30, 2019
I read the reviews and they received 4.5 to 5 stars from other satisfied customers. Bikebandit also says they guarantee 100% satisfaction. I have made many purchases in the past from Bikebandit and I've always been satisfied.

Matt L on Apr 16, 2019
This is the second set of these tires I have put on my bike. They last 3 times longer than the original Pirellis tires my bike came with and I can still zoom around just as well. I have a '13 CB500X and these tires do not mind getting worked for adventure. I tried a set of Avons also, they did not compare to Metzeler.
Tim K on Apr 16, 2019
AFFORDABLE AND I HAVE USED THIS BRAND BEFORE.

9th set...
Roadtec Z6's were what came stock on my FJR the title says it all. 10,000 miles at least a set(95,000 on the bike) and have never been disappointed with these tires. I'm Not a knee dragger but these things stick wet or dry what more can you ask for.
Thanks Bike Bandit for the price and service never disappointed here either.

Delivered within a week
Great delivery service since it was free and the tires were on fall sale. I haven't mounted Metzelers since the MEZ4 which were perfectly balanced and worked well in cold and wet. These Z6's seem light weight and I won't know until they get used next spring on my FZ1 commuter.

Many Miles and on to the next one!
Did 11200Km on my first rear in three months, and already fitted the next one.
Very good grip, even when wet.
Rode 70/30 highway vs twisties
Very happy with the performance
Had a flat spot from highway riding and outside almost un-touced
Doing more twisties now. :-)
This is after 11200Km
Pitty about the outside though

Super tire for a great price
I highly recommend these tires for the price I paid. I have the same tire on my CB1100 and it feels like it is glued to the road. If I get normal use, I will be a happy motorcyclist.
