Metzeler have developed a new X-Ply tyre for sport motorcycles up to 400cc and sporty scooters. Although the pattern design will remind you of the popluar Sportec M5, the construction is completely different. The tyre promises a good level of performance even for the most advance specifications of recent bikes including ones with electronic aids like ABS. The tread pattern is designed to enhance braking and cornering performance in dry conditions but at the same time guarantees traction and grip in the wet. The grooves of the front and rear work together to evacuate surface water fast giving rider confidence to lean the bike at an angle.
