Metzeler Roadtec 01 “tyre of the year 2017”

ROADTEC™ 01

Motorcycle News has selected its ‘Tyre of the Year’, and again it is the Metzeler Roadtec 01. The back-to-back victory for the sport touring tyre, comments Metzeler, confirms the “excellent qualities” that the Roadtec 01 possesses.

The decision to name the Roadtec 01 the MCN Tyre of the Year is the latest in a series of honours to come its way since the tyre’s launch in January 2016. In its debut year it was voted Best Sports Touring tyre by MCN and it also topped the comparative test published by German magazine Motorrad. Later in the year, the Metzeler tyre was crowned Tyre of the Year by MCN for the first time. This year, MCN repeated the sport touring tyre comparative test and the winner was again the Metzeler Roadtec 01. Two consecutive successes in this crucial market segment convinced the editorial team to also award it Tyre of the Year in 2017.
