Product Details

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.

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.

What is the difference between this tire and the Metzeler Z6 C OEM? There is a price difference for the 180/55/17 from one to the other.
PatrickO on Mar 26, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! The "C" option is for OEM BMW K1200 and Yamaha FJR 1300
what's the top mileage?
Laurie U on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When I sold my bike with a set of them on they had 15,000 kms on them and still had between maybe seven and 10,000 kms left on them. I could have easily got another season out of them. Pretty hard sport touring miles too, but not crazy hard miles. Highly recommend them for their performance (in corners especially), price and longevity. I will always buy these tyres (as long as they continue to manufacture them).

Great Tyres at a Great Price
This is the second time I've purchased these tyres. The first time I thought they were being discontinued since there are successive Z8, etc. versions. Upon purchasing these tyres for my BMW, I realized that despite the low price, they were excellent sport touring tyres. My confidence level in corners increased twofold at least. Then came when I had to sell the bike. I looked at the tyres and they looked "new" still. I advertised the bike as having new tyres. In the process of selling the bike, I reviewed my maintenance records and realized that the tyres had 15,000 kms on them. Not easy miles either. So, in summary after considering the great performance, good price point and longevity of these tyres, I had to buy them for my new Yamaha when I saw them on sale. The tyres I received were pretty "fresh." One was about a year old and the other was a year and a half old. Great value tyres. I hope they keep making them. I don't want to have to try and find a tyre this good again. I'll buy them over and over again as long as they continue to make them.

Nice Tires
Just put them on and am enjoying the ride. I am a strait up and down rider and am looking more for high mileage than how they stick in the rain. We don't get much of that here in southern Nevada. I do however feel very confident when riding with these tires. I have used Metzelers on many of my bikes and have always been pleased.
