Great tire
So far so good. Sticky but not too soft and I think I will be able to get about 7,000 miles out of it on my 2009 Duc Multistrada

3rd Set, always good
I've put these tires on two of my CBR900s and one on my CBR929. Each time I'm happy with the way they feel. Good grip, good in the wet if I accidentally get caught, and good tread life.

Amazing tire!
Been running Metzeler M3 for a while now and have no plans on switching brands or model of tires. Visordown.com did an amazing review on them. Metzeler became a Pirelli sister company, no not owned by. But the M3 gives the rider the control and feel in which he wants. Rides beautifully whether it's wet otherwise dry. Trust me living here in Florida with our rain we know. Very balanced tires. I've personally haven't ever had a single issue with them. My current rear tire has 6300 miles on it and it truly still looks new. I completely recommend this tire to anyone who rides regularly anD likes to have that rush now and then. They won't let you down.

THESE TIRES GRIP LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW!!

For a company that started in 1890 they sure aren't having a problem with keeping up with modern technology.

Metzeler tires too slick. Guaranteed to result in a spin out.
If you want to be hurt within two miles of your first run with new tires, get these. I'm 66. I pulled out from a stop sign and wasn't doing anything unusual. They gave way. I ended up crawling to my bike ten feet away. Much damage to bike. Bruising to me. Zero grip at start of use. What is point of getting expensive new tires if you end up hurt (or worse) and with much damage to bike. Don't get these.

It’s the same tire as I had before!!!
Jeremy T on Jun 10, 2018
This will be my second rear M3. First one still has tons of tread left after about 3k miles. But due to a gaping hole from what I assume was a nail, I have to replace it. I have tried many different tires on my 95 Honda CBR1000F Hurricane and none have made me feel as comfortable and confident anytime wet or dry at any angle. I will continue to buy these tires until they stop making them. I use this bike to commute 80 minutes a day plus the cruise with friends often.
David T on May 31, 2018
Absolutely great tire. Sticky tire with good mileage on my ZX1400R.

super sweet ride and feel on the road. Sticky in the turns and lasts a long time on my ZX6R.
Alan J on Jun 14, 2017
I love how these tires handle in the rain and sun.
ian e on Nov 30, 2016
I have used this rear tire in the past and I remember getting good mileage and performance. Low price was also a big selling point.
Ed M on Oct 30, 2016
I ran M3s on my Honda, and Kawasaki. They performed well, especially in wet weather. That was important for me as South Florida is notorious for its sudden, and serious storms. These will be run on a Yamaha FZ-1 that's heavier than the Honda, and Kawi, but I'm expecting the same performance.
William B on Sep 12, 2016
The reviews were solid and for the commute these are a great all around tire. Looking forward to placing some miles on these to test wear and handling
Andrew J on Aug 25, 2016
This is the same tire I had on my bike and it performed flawlessly! They just don't last forever!
