Metzeler M7rr tyres ?
 
Gents,

Has anyone on road experience with these tyres and how would you rate them?

Going on a 600 supersports no trackdays will be done so just mixed road use.

Mtorcycleshop.ie have 20% off at the min so about 200 delivered for a pair 120/70 front and 180/55 rear.

Opinions please on tyre and price?

Cheers

I road all the way to Slovenia and back on a set on the SP.
Brilliant tyre in all conditions, couldn't fault them at all.
Decent wear too.

Ive had 3 sets of them, fantastic tyres on different types of bikes.

Been using them on the 1000 with a while (on my second set), takes about 2 miles to warm up fully in very cold weather. Excellent all rounder and good wearing. Steering is a little quicker and much less inclined to stand the bike up if you have to brake mid corner. :thumbsup2:

Very good tyre in all conditions.
Good grip.....but takes a few miles to warm up in cold conditions.
Had them on the R1 and Beemer.

By far the best tyre I've had so far on my bike. Brilliant dry grip and lean angle into corners was perfect. Did a track day as well in mondello, in the dry, and was well able to keep up. I have pilot road 4 on at the moment cause my garage didn't have these in stock and they are not as good.

The one bad point is that they wear out a bit quicker then the pr4.

A slightly cheaper metzler is the m5, I think, which is a slightly older tech then the m7rr but does a decent job.

Put a set on the S1000R for a Euro trip in 2016, some of the mountain passes were ridden 'energetically', and the tyres never put a foot wrong, highly recommend them.

Thanks a mill for all the replies, seem to go along the lines of what the other reviews online say.

With the 20% off on motorcycle.ie the pair in my size are €207 delivered but they also have the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 in same size for €164 delivered.

So which would be the better tyre for the money,
Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 or the Metzeler M7RR ??

Both made by the same company. They will be very similar or
even identical apart from the tread pattern.

Pirelli-Metzeler make good tyres. You won't go far wrong either way.

You can brake mid corner no problem. You won't get far in racing without knowing how to.

Yes you can when you're racing, but if it does stand the bike up mid corner on the track, there is plenty of run off, and there are no trucks or tractors coming the other way. Be careful what advice you're giving to whom.
