17.09.2020 from Creg Wooden I've used Dunlop Road Smart 3, Michellin PR4 and Metzeler Roadtec 01 on my MT and the latter is by far the best.
The bike feels planted, there's loads of grip even in the wet and it lasts for ages with little squaring off, though that wouldn't he the case of you did lots of motorway miles.
What I like about the Roadtec is that there is more than enough dry grip than I will ever need. I'm a seasoned rider having been on bikes for 26 years and ride with enthusiasm shall we say. However despite the plentiful dry grip it is in the wet where the Roadtec shines. Lean angles and confidence that you'd expect in the dry are the norm and the feed back and turning in of the bike are confidence inspiring. These tyre also have great life with me getting 6000miles from my last rear which I think is in large part due to the fact I don't believe they are dual compound so there are no softer bits to wear quickly. Surprising given the performance of the tyre.
27.12.2018 from Steve Milsom Not a bad tyre when new. Back tended to skip about on white lines and grooves. Past it’s best by 5000 km. wierd profile developed that caused odd handling and vibration. Plenty of tread left so I put up with it for commuting. Not as good as PR4s IMHO
