Metzeler Tourance NEXT Tires 4.2 5 14 14
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
Excellent tire - I think I picked up a nail in a rear tire recently and since the front tire was badly worn I just put two of these tires on my Suzuki V-Strom. So far I am very impressed with the tires. I could not give a rating for tread life since I've only had the tires a couple of months. Also, I've been lucky enough not to have to ride in the wet. So no score for wet traction either. It is a very nice handling tire though. January 21, 2014
You can be aggressive on the corners! Street 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. Dirt 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. January 1, 2014
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. December 9, 2013
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. October 14, 2013
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. September 28, 2013
Nice upgrade After 3,500 miles I can say this is better than the previous generation. Dry and off road grip are no different, but on wet pavement the improvements are noticeable. September 8, 2013

Fred B: As an alternative to the Tourance classic Jun 23, 2014
M E F: Made In Germany NOT CHINA. Returned Tourances one week ago that were MADE IN CHINA. I don't buy that supervision works in Asia, I lived there. Please confirm these say GERMANY BEFORE SHIPPING. Thanks Jun 22, 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
Thomas G: Try something new and immediate availability Apr 29, 2014
Mark P: I had Metzelers on a couple of BMW's and loved them, so I wanted to try them on my 2012 Triumph Tiger. Love them. Apr 7, 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.

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

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

A shopper asked: 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. Mar 30, 2014
