Metzeler Tourance NEXT Tires 4.4 5 26 26
4500 miles of good times I've been through several sets of Anakee 2's, A set of 3's, three sets of Conti TA's, Old-school Metzler Tourance's and TKC'80's. The bike I put these on is a 2010 F800GS, 150/70/17 rear, 90/90/21 front. I levered on a set of the NEXT's in search of more grip with neutral handling. 4500 miles of riding and the front tire is about 1000 miles away from the wear bars. Normally I'd run the tires to the wear bars but in this case I have a long weekend (1200 miles) scheduled up to Monterey in a couple weeks and with the pending El Nino I'm not taking chances so I changed the tires a bit early. I liked the handling of the tire and the stick is absolutely best in class on the street. Wet traction is decent and the tire is very predictable. The front tire is a single compound while the rear is a dual compound with a harder center. My front has worn out long before the rear tire. I attribute this to heavy front braking and aggressive riding. This is remarkable because in all my years of riding this is the first time I've worn the front out before the rear. I was hoping to get 7,000 out of the set so I'm a tad disappointed there. I suspect on a long tour one might get 10k out of the tires with a lot of freeway travel. The front tire also tends to grab the rain grooves just a bit when new. After 500 miles that mostly went away. I bought the tires for the Stick and that they did. No complaints there. I'm going to try the new Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2's as a replacement. If they stick like the NEXTs, don't track the rain grooves and the front lasts 7k then I may have my new best tire. November 14, 2015
OK tires, maybe not right for a Ulysses I'll break it down and then summarize my experience with these tires. Bang for the buck: they're not cheap but they're not the most expensive. I got mine on sale. Grip: no complaints. Seems to hold well leaned over and loaded up, gravel traction is acceptable. Tread life: kind of disappointing. I bought into the dual compound thing and they are wearing out pretty fast. I've done about 4000 miles on them and the rear is noticeably flattened in the middle. I was hoping to get to 8000 before noticeable wear. The Michelin Pilot Roads got 10,000 before looking well used. Wet traction: it is fine. I spent a few hundred miles in the heavy rain and only had one pucker on a particularly slick corner that my beemer friends on Anakees also slid around. My biggest complaint about the tires is they make the bike feel really weird at low speed. Maybe the front tire's profile is taller than the bike was designed for or something. The front tire resists bar input in parking lots. At speed they don't turn in as quickly as the Pilot Roads or Scorpion Syncs. I think they're just wrong for the Ulysses. Once these are done I probably won't buy another set. October 1, 2015
Happy getting 9k miles and 3 track days on my ADV bike! Definitely happy with these tires I bought a second set. I ride mostly canyons at spirted paces and these never disappointed. Did a lot of California fire roads and was surprise how capable they were and that's coming from someone without a lot of off road experience. Rode a few times in the rain and still was impressed. However when it came down to getting a new set I went with the Pirelli Scorpion Trail II as they were ranked #1 by a German motorcycle magazine. Last year the same magazine rated the Tourance NEXTs #1. This year they finished in second. September 29, 2015
Love these tires I have about 1,000 miles on these now, about 90/10 road/dirt. They grip very well, including when coming across and unexpected patch of dirt or gravel in a blind corner. They have also done well in the rain for me. I have them on a 2005 1200GS September 14, 2015
I like the tires. Real neutral feel to them. I did like the Pilor Trails better June 16, 2015
Just installed my third set I got 9K out the first set, 9K again out of the second.Fantastic grip on wet pavement, best choice for year-around riding in Seattle. Also comes in size 180 and 190 for the rear. For the last two sets I went with the 180, which clears the swing arm just fine and handles just as well. You could probably even fit the 190, but I didn't want the increased weight. March 9, 2015
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

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

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

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

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.
