A great road tire
I scrubbed these tires in with a few miles around town and then headed for the Blue Ridge Parkway end to end and then back - about 1000 miles of one curve after another. Wet or Dry the NEXT is a great tire. As my rating shows, the wear is excellent and the grip as good as ANY tire I've ever used. That included TWO up and LUGGAGE for some of these miles. All good.

The feedback through the handlebars is good and there are no surprises. I don't put a knee down in the corners, but my R1200GS handles very well in the twisties.

The dirt roads (gravel fire roads) I traversed were hard packed and dry but the control and traction was acceptable. This is NOT an off road tire or a dual sport tire by any means - there are better tires out there for dirt.

On the road they are great. I'll be expecting over 7000 miles from these tires. Maybe more from the front tire, but I always replace both.

Good on dry and off-road, but NOT on wet.
I put this on right before a weekend ADV ride on my Multistrada. I only put it on the front as I needed a new tire anyways and figured I'd get something that would match the terrain I was going in.

Off-Road - I'd have to say it probably saved my hide a few times. I'm an avid off-road racer, but a 500# Multi can be a bit to handle when the front wants to wash. Gravel, dirt, mud, it did fine - or as expected for a 90/10 tire.

Dry - It grips and does great - this past weekend I went and did the Deal's Gap - two-up. It had feel in the turns and did it's job. Tread life started to show though.

Wet - I don't think I've ever had a tire that felt as un-confident as this tire in the wet. For a tire that raves on any-weather conditions it does NOT feel good in the wet. It felt like the front wanted to tuck on every corner. Because of this, I never really got to push it as hard and test grip in the wet. It simply didn't feel good and kept me at a very slow pace.

I'll be replacing this with a Pilot Road 3 since I know I'll be keeping the Multi on mostly paved roads from here on out.

Great product
Used the NEXT rear tire with a stock front one on a Super Tenere. Great grip in cornering and wet roads. Couldn't be happier. About to replace it after 8K of fairly aggressive riding.

Keep coming back to Tourance
I have over 5000 miles on these tires now and have plenty of tread left. I use them on my 2009 R1200GSA. I always liked the old style Tourance and these seem a little better in the rain. They give me confidence that I can lean into turns with great grip. Because I ride mostly street these I appreciate a tire that is made for my type of riding on my bike. In addition, they were easy to mount and balance.

I made my desicion to switch my HEIDENEAU k60 to Metzelers because I'll ride mostly pavement curves roads in my 3000 miles tide in Mexico.
This tires made my ride incredible, I was able to scrath my pegs in fast speed without doubt in every tight curve, rode trough Sonora,Chihuahua, Batopilas on dirt road, Durango, El Espinazo del Diablo, Mazatlan, Ferry to Baja all the way up trough the dirt road to Coco's Corner and finally to arrive home in Mexicali rigth on the border.
I can say to much about tread life but tires perfomance great in every road, dirt and pothole I found on my ride.

So far, so good
So far, these tires are more confidence inspiring than the original Tourance EXPs that were on my BMW R1200GS. Little bit louder than the EXPs though. Only have about 1000 miles on them so won't know about tread life for awhile now. Hoping they last longer than the 7500 I got from the EXPs.

Great dry grip traction. Ok grip in the wet, better than the EXP, but not perfect. Haven't had a chance to try these in the dirt yet. Decent grip in hard pack gravel.

You can be aggressive on the corners!
I found these tires to be fantastic on the twisty canyon roads where I ride. I am a very agressive rider and noticed that I was tearing up the tread/rubber compound rapidly. I got less than 4000 miles on the rear, the front still looks new.
These are exactly what they were designed for 10% dirt. They grab hard pack in a straight line and thats about it. The front will wash out with the slightest lean angle at speed.

R1200GS fully loaded - excellent handling & grip
Installed new Tourance Next before 10,500 mile trip on heavily loaded R1200GS. Handling in all conditions (pavement, dirt, gravel, wet & dry) was great. Good traction in all weather conditions, but did not hit any heavy mud or sand. Changed out rear tire at 8,000 with probably 700-1,000 miles left on it (9mm tread at center new, 2mm when changed). Front tire hit wear bars at 12,000. These results were higher than I achieved with Tourance EXP or Anakee 2 tires. I will continue to use the Tourance Next and would recommend without reservation.

Excellent ADV touring tire
I purchased these tires for my 2012 Yamaha Super Tenere. I was planning a 9 day 3500 mile ride that would go from Maine to Tennessee. We ran a lot of different road surfaces from Interstate, fast 4 lane sweepers, twisty back roads, several long stretches of gravel and of course a couple runs on the Dragon. We also encountered a couple heavy rain storms and had no issues. I am not sure on tread life as a whole but I can say they look excellent after a 3500 miles and anticipate getting more than 7000.

Back to Metzeler
In the 80s and 90s I rode on Metzeler. I then switched to others including Michelin (Anakee, then 2 then 3). After an unexpected flat on my Anakee 3 this year, I decided to try the Tourance Next. I'm glad I did. It's an amazing on-road tire. Is it 10% off road too? It is in the sense that if I see a short stretch of gravel road ahead, without mud, without sand, I'll go for it. It's not a tire for true off road riding, not even a bit. But that's what I have my Karoo 3 for. In short, for the next couple of years, at least, I'm back to Metzeler.

Great road tires for my 2014 F800GS. Not much good on the dirt, but excellent for the twisties and commuting.
Seamus McPhisticuffs on Oct 5, 2016
A lot quieter than the Michelin Anakee's Definitely the way to go. Seems like they last longer too... I got about 9000 on a rear tire and 13k on a front (which i changed earlier than needed... could have rode another 2k miles i bet).

nicolas r on Jun 3, 2014
Reviews were good, and it fits my riding style better than the Metzeler that came stock and is ready for replacement. If it handles and wears well, I'll replace the front with a NEXT as well. This tire should be just right for a 95% road 5% dirt rider on a large machine such as my Tiger. I don't intend to traverse single track with it, but fire roads should track a lot better with this tire, or I'm hoping it does.

What is the difference between the Tourance Next TL and the Tourance Next TL (B)?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I do not known the answer, I purchased the Tourance Next tires and found them to be a better street tire then either of the old tourance tires. Better hold in dry and wet.
How this tire perform on wet roads?
David M on Oct 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Metzeler NEXT tires have performed very well on wet roads. I have about 10,000 miles on this set and have been very satisfied. I'm a touring rider, so I don't tend to push tires to their limits, but I have ridden in a fair amount of rain, some of it very heavy. These tires track well, don't show any tendency to hydroplane, and feel solid at pronounced lean angles on wet pavement. As I said, I have about 10,000 miles on these tires and I'm riding a BMW R1200GS. The front has quite a bit of tread left, but the rear is obviously squared. My riding season is nearing an end, so I'll continue to run these until I park the bike for the winter. I'd have to say that I'm very satisfied with the longevity of these tires. All in all, in dry weather and in wet, I'm happy with these tires and have already ordered another set that I'll mount in the spring.
Hi there, would you suggest these tyres on a Honda NC700, mainly for road use?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend these tires for ANY road going bike within the correct size range. Excellent grip and a great ride - wet or dry.
I pushed my R1200GS very hard with these tires and they were quite predictable - they never let me down. I had TWO sets of rims - one set with a pair of TKC80 adventure tires and one set with ROAD only Tourance NEXT.

I can't say they are in the "sport bike" category, but I had a positive experience.
This is a great tire and Revzilla is the place to buy!
my KTM 950 Adventure (2004) needs new shoes. Got my eye on these as an option. Live in Oregon and need something that likes to grip in the wet. Will do minimal dirt (forest service roads). Also a 3 week summer tour into Canada planned. Downside? Perfect? Other options or advise?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've been pretty happy with these tires. Wear is pretty consistent and considerably better than the previous Tourance EXPs that were previously mounted. Better in the wet than the prev. tires as well. I commute on my R12GS so I see all sorts of weather conditions. Good feedback and control in the wet so hopefully they'd be the same for you on the KTM. I've got about 5% of my mileage on local seasonal roads (imagine anywhere between chip-sealed to strictly graveled to dirt with a little gravel topcoat added, all of which are not maintained regularly) and these tire do ok. I'd rather have a more dedicated dirt tire if I was going to spend any more time on fire roads. Hope that helps.
Hi! I have heard some Metzler tires like the tourance now say made in China on them. Is this the case with
the tourance next as well? Thanks!
David M on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Have Metzeler Next F & R on '10 R1200GS. Both say "Made in Germany".
Front is new this summer w/3k miles. Rear last fall with 8k mi. Expecting normal mileage of 10-12K rear & 12-15K Front
Have run the original Tourances since 2002 & were Germany - have not seen otherwise in Metzeler tires.
which years manufacturers are they ?
ALI H on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I purchased these tires in Sept. 2014. They are mounted on a 2012 BMW R1200 GSA. Now, with about 6000 miles of usage. About half of that was under a heavily laden load. The tires have performed well in the rain and dry roads. However they are a 90/10 application and are ok on a hard dirt road, but have a issue on gravel, the front tire will wash out with any speed. I used the Tourance Next for primarily road touring ( since my wife rides a can am spyder ). While touring in Montana, I rode through much road construction with lots of hard and soft dirt for some distance. The soft dirt with the load I was carrying was the tires tended to squirm around. I hope this helps you out.
I keep seeing where riders are using the Next on the 1200 GS but would it not be a good choice for a 700 GS as well ? I do some gravel road and fire roads.
A shopper on Sep 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Next is a great street tire, long life, great traction and good wet grip however If you ride any kind of dirt I would recommend using a different tire. It does not work well on any kind of dirt.
Are the Tourance NEXT still made in Germany?
M E F on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, per the sidewall imprints.. Just mounted them on my Tiger Explorer.
I ride a 2012 BMWR1200GS. Anyone have that bike with the Tourance Next up front, and a Tourance EXP on the back? Probably will eventually match both, but in transition, with worn out front, and a rear with about 75% left on it.
A shopper on Mar 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Try a pair of Avon Storms. You'll never look back.
