Metzeler Sportec M7 RR 200/55ZR17 78W TL Rear Motorcycle Tyres.
The new Metzeler Sportec M7 RR will eventually replace the very popular Sportec M5. So what's new? Well first of all it's starts with the actual development of the tyre. It has been uniquely made using the experience from British roads hence the RR markings on the tyre.
The front tyre is a single compound, made from 100% silica, for anyone that is not sure what that is, it's the stuff that gives you good wet-weather grip. The rear tyre as you would expect nowdays, is dual compound, with soft silica shoulders for that extra grip when cornering at speed (with a harder compound beneath for stability) the centre compound is "harder" so to offer more mileage and stability.
Zero degree belts running around the tyre carcass are tensioned differently in certain areas – this is the Metzeler ‘Interact’ technology which it has been using for the past few years on various ranges such as the M5 and Z6. The belts have high tension in the middle and edges for stability and less tension in the shoulders for feel and grip.
