Metzeler Tourance NEXT Tires 4.4 5 20 20
Definitely inspires confidence, you feel connected to the road. I have been riding a BMW GS 1200 since 2006 till now (2015) with assorted tires, mostly the traditional Tourance tires. I just recently put on a set (front and rear) of Tourance NEXT’s, I cannot speak for the tread life, but immediately could feel how well they grip the road. When going around corners or "twisties" I feel more “connected”, greater confidence that I can lay the bike over without breaking loose. If the tires hold up to high miles these will be my go-to tires. January 26, 2015
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. January 6, 2015
GREAT EXPERIENCIE IN PAVEMENT AND DIRT IN MEXICO 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. Cheers Carlos November 26, 2014
performed as excpected Performed as expected.this was an OEM replacement. November 3, 2014
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. October 13, 2014
Set the right tire pressure is the key These tires went on my 2013 BMW R1200GSA to replace the Michelin Anakee III. At first, I didn't like these tires at all. The front tire tracked by every grove on the road and edges of the tarmac. The handle bar was super light to the point it was wabbly above 50 mph. The bike felt very tippie, and I could feel the transition from the center harder coupound to the softer side when I lean. Turned out, the shop set the pressure at 36 in the front and 42 in the back as recommended by BMW for 2 up with heavy load. That setting was not appropriate for me as I am only 150 lb, riding alone most of the time, and don't carry much in the panniers other than my Macbook. It got better after I lowered it to 32/36, but still not good enough. Since I bought these tires already and had no intention to return them, so, why not experiment by lower the pressure more. They are now perfect at 28 in the front and 33 in the back. I know lower pressure will reduce the tread life and so on. But, it's a small price to pay to ride with confident and comfort. I am planning to raise the pressure up a bit after I put a few hundred miles on it to see if it's better. I can't rate the tread life as I am running on different pressure. Can't tell the wet traction either as it hasn't rained yet since I put them on. My intention is to use these for the wet winter season with less chances to go off-road. Planning to replace these with Karoo 3 next spring to get ready for off-road. September 12, 2014
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. May 30, 2014
Good so far Have had the tires on for 19 days. Have ridden in rain and they seem to grip and track well. There is currently 3100 miles on this set and they are wearing well so far. They are quieter than the EXP's I had before. No off road experience to report so far. May 19, 2014

nicolas r: Increased mileage on my conmuter sport bike. Jun 3, 2014
R J: 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. May 4, 2014

Don C: 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. Oct 8, 2013

Jay S: In late August and early September, I rode for many days in Europe on a R1200GS (2013) 2-up with these tires in the rain. They performed very well and had no issues with traction.

After my Europe trip, I mounted the same tires on my 2012 R1200GSA and so far, they have performed equally as well. They are a dual compound tire and can feel squirmy if the proper tire pressure is not maintained. I don't know about mileage yet, since I have only about 2500 miles on my set, but if the tour bike is any indicator, it had over 6500 miles and the tires looked broken-in but not worn. They have outstanding grip when riding curves and twisty roads. Hope this helps.

Dan H: I have run all 3 tourance tires in the wet and dry. Overall the Next seem to shed water better then the originals and the exp's. Grip is excellent and hadle the TWISTIES quite well. I am most please with the wear. The original tourance gave me about 5k miles on the rear and the exp were not quite as good on wear about 3500 on the rear. The next is at about 4k now and still have a ton of tread. I would say I have at least another 5k of life. Overall it's exceeding my expectations. Oct 7, 2013

Daniel T: Put a set of these on my r1200GSA for a trip to Key West and back in September. Rode through plenty of rain, from light sprinkles to torrential down pours! Never had an issue with traction or stability. Have about 4K miles on them now and don't see any obvious signs of wear - especially with lots of highway miles. I would recommend them and buy again.

John G: Hello David. I put 4500 miles on these tires this summer on Route 66 to CA. I had two days of real rain and one of mist. All riding was on roads, no off road. They felt really secure on turns and while braking. In addition, the wear is minimal after all these miles. I have a 2006 BMW R 1200 GS and they worked well for me. Oct 7, 2013

Timothy D: Honestly, it doesn't do that great. I never felt comfortable on it compared to the previous (stock) Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires. I was running a front only and ended up taking it off as it seemed to plow in corners in the wet and wasn't very confident inspiring. Oct 7, 2013

Tom W: David, I've put over 9,000 miles on these tires this summer and, believe it or not, only rode in a small amount of rain. I don't tend to push the curves in wet weather but at normal highway speeds they handle fine. In dry weather they are great. Oct 7, 2013

Mark P: Strangely enough we have had a good stretch of dry weather since I put the tires on. So I only drove it on wet roads one time for a short distance, about 5 miles. I really didn't really get a chance to warm up to the conditions since it was my first time on wet roads with the Metzlers and such a sort distance. They felt fine, but I was also being cautious. So I can't tell you that they were great in these conditions, but I can tell you I had no problems and they didn't give me any surprises. I wish I could be of more help to you. Oct 7, 2013

A shopper asked: Hi there, would you suggest these tyres on a Honda NC700, mainly for road use? Jan 3, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
A s: 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!

Richard M: While I don't have experience with the NC700, I have been OK with them on my R1200GS - good handling & mileage similar to the original Tourance.
As we all know, tire performance varies by bike type or application (you might also consider the Michelin PR4's for only road use). Maybe check one of the Honda forums for more ride history.

Steve B: Yes, absolutely. The tires are rated 90/10 (Street / Offroad). They have great grip on the road but not much offroad. They're not racing tires though. They also work well in the rain, and wear well. One of my favorite tires. Jan 3, 2015

Steve M: This is, by far, the best tire I've ever had on my V-Strom. Took a 5,000 mile trip this summer and had several rain days. Didn't have to slow down at all while in the rain. Amazing grip. Jan 6, 2015

A shopper asked: 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? Jan 10, 2015

Joon K: 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. Jan 13, 2015

Carl L Z: Based upon your street preferences, yes, get the Tourance NEXT tires. I have a 2013 R1200GS LC. In the 18 months I've owned the bike I have 35,000 miles on it. I'm a pretty aggressive rider and get about 6000 miles out of a set of tires. I like the NEXT specifically because they are GREAT in the wet. I've also had Continentals, and Michelin Anakee 3s on my GS. For mostly road riding and touring, I prefer the NEXT. Note, they are not good in the mud, but do OK on dry dirt roads. I consider them to be 99% road and 1% dirt; which is fine for my riding. Jan 13, 2015

Jay S: This is my 3rd set of these tires and I really like them, I have excellent wet and dry grip with long wear. I typically get 9-12K out of a set. I have not had them on dirt roads so I can't answer that part of the question but I have ridden wet roads with them here in the states and in Europe and the wet grip is outstanding. Jan 13, 2015

Jack W: I have used these tires in all those conditions on my BMW Adventure. They are great on the road, but will be competent in hard pack or gravel. Many of my fellow GS riders use them as well. Good luck with your trip. Jan 16, 2015

Richard M: 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.
