Product Details

Metzeler Sportec M7RR Tires

The Metzeler Sportec M7 RR is engineered to empower riders with a sporty riding style who use their motorcycles in all conditions, weather and temperatures. The M7RR is derived from Metzeler's experience in Road Racing, including the Isle of Man TT and the Metzeler Ulster Grand Prix and features completely new profiles, structure materials, compounds and tread pattern.

We all know roads are not always perfect like race tracks, we have to face unexpected wet patches, debris, temperature drops or uneven tarmac. For these uncontrollable variables, Metzeler has introduced a new concept of water drainage and contact feeling thanks to dual-compound on the rear tire combined with Interact technology and high silica compounds.

Tread Pattern Design

The longitudinal grooves are interrupted by compound bridges to increase the thrust in acceleration, enhance stability of tread compound and improve wear regularity. These bridges also keep the grove wide open when in contact with the tarmac, ensuring water evacuation. In the lateral groves, depth decreases gradually towards shoulder area to increase compactness and lateral thrust when turning at maximum lean angle on dry tarmac; their width on the other hand, increases towards shoulder area to guarantee efficient water evacuation at higher lean angle.


For the Sportec M7RR, Metzeler has develop a compound capable of generating chemical and mechanical grip. The development target was to extend the sporty behavior from the ‘perfect or ideal conditions’ of dry warm temperature and regular asphalt to those sudden and unpredictable situations that we all actually encounter when riding on normal roads: wet spots, leaves, temperature drops, debris, holes, etc. Therefore Metzeler developed a totally new family of compounds with high to full Silica (SiO2). 

The rear tire is Dual-Compound with a 40%-20%-40% layout. The shoulder strip has a 100% silica content that provide chemical grip on both dry and wet surfaces, supported by a harder compound in the substrate that grants the highest levels of stability and steering precision when cornering. This same ‘base’ compound exists in the central portion of the tread which covers approximately 45mm in width (with slight difference between sizes) and assures an elevated mileage capability.


The main function of the profile is to influence the handling behavior of the tire. The profile of SPORTEC M7 RR Tires are directly derived from those used in the Road Racing activity by Guy Martin and other road racers. This profile provides an immediate dive into a lean from the upright position and agile handling for quick direction change.The shoulder portion is flatter, providing a 5% larger footprint which provides better grip and trajectory precision when leaning. Sidewall height is also increased by 3mm, providing more torsional-flexibility that increases the tire traction in accelerations and out of the turns.


  • Sporty Handling: the combination of profiles derived from the Road Racing activities with high stiffness structures delivers an extremely agile handling for a sporty riding style on all roads
  • Grip in all Conditions: 100% Silica compounds combined with a special tread pattern gives the SPORTEC M7 RR the unique capability to keep the sporty riding style in cold weather, wet roads and greasy and grimy tarmac surfaces
  • Extended Mileage: 20% more mileage compared to the SPORTEC M5 Interact and dual compound construction on rear sizes allows the use of a specific material on the central slick portion of the tread pattern to increase abrasion resistance and extend the mileage capability

Great Product Metzeler
First let me start by saying thank you to Metzeler for letting me test these tires out.

First Impression of these Metzeler M7rr I was skeptical but being tthat pirelli owns metzeler I had some confidence that these had some backbone to them. Generally for a street/track tire I run the pirelli Rosso II or the rosso corsa (depending on when in the season I am purchasing) I read about these tires and how they are an updated version of the M5. After speaking with Metzeler's reccomended tire advisor I was told it is very similar to both pirellis in performance and mileage.
I currently have almost 2000 miles on the set, within this I have done two trackdays. One at Road Atlanta and the Other at Jennings Gp. Also had a few miles running up and down Blood Mtn.
Starting with the track...
Road Atlanta. I use the first two laps as warm-up laps to heat the tires up then take off. At a high Intermediate/low advanced group pace the tires performed excellent. Weather was 80+ and sunny. Plenty of heat to warm-up the tires. Highly predictable tires! Traction control cut on intermittently in Turn 5,7,10a/b and 12. Tires? Not sure. The tires had some slide in Turn 7 (hard 90 degree right hander) but it was NOT abrupt. It was smooth and very easy to ride out. Hard braking from the back straight at 180+ down to 60+at turn 10a the tires performed great. The front end stuck no issue! The day went well and the tires performed absolutely great. Kept up with those on supercorsas and slicks.
Now for Jennings GP
This track is very technical in my opinion. Not a very fast track but many switch backs with a double apex. This day was 60 degrees and cloudy. The track was "coldish" went out in advanced group did my warm up laps at about 80% then took off into turn 1. Sweeping left hander. Then onwards. The double apex felt great tires sticking like glue. Then on to turn 8(slowest most technical turn) the bike was sticking traction control doing its thing and the POOF. The bike slides out and drops onto my left leg then causing me to barrel roll. After looking at the tires after the crash. The tires had the "TIRE SLIDE MARKS" from where it appeared to have lost traction and spun out. I know for a fact traction control was on because i saw the indicator flashing after watching playback. Tires fault? My fault? Bad body position? Bad line? Too fast into the turn? Im not sure. I know that in the warm-up laps and beginning off harder riding the tires felt great. Then the lowside. Im not here to talk bad about a product just explain an experience.

Enough for the track
These tires are absolutely amazing for street use. I was caught in the rain several times (I commute on my R1) and hard braking and acceleration the tires felt absolutely great. That is the Silica doing its job. I decided that i would try a backroad or two while it was raining to test the lean while in the rain. Granted i was not dragging knee in the rain but riding at a "spirited" pace! No slide and again great braking in moderate rain. So far i commute 35 miles one way to work. Some highway some backroads and as far as providing feedback from the road. These tires do the trick. Unfortunately I ride which means i get cut off but even in last second decisions the tires allow me to overcome hazards and help me feel safer. The issue with rising is that the smallest pebble in the road can cause i rider to freak out and cause issues. But who doesnt freak when they are turning and snap a rock in the front. These tires do great in light gravel "uh oh" situations. Very very very predictable behavior. Im not saying to going leaning through and sand pit but hold your line and the tires will not compromise but instead help you achieve confidence in riding around.

Overall the Metzeler M7rr are great all around tires! Excellent street tires and i would say good beginning track day enthusiast tires. Metzeler spent some time on these and i am impressed even though i lowsided!
Enjoy! Ride safe!

It was hard buying these as a Pirelli fan and very little to go off of in terms of reviews. I'm glad I did, these are the perfect tire for street riding. The wet grip is immense and hitting patches of sand no longer makes you want to soil your undies. Compared to the Diablo Roso Corsa (same price range) they grip better at extreme lean angles and wear better while commuting. Only con I've had is the amount of time to warm them up and they're extremely slick until warm.

overall awesome!
my previous bike, a '13 speed triple, i had the M5's. i didnt really care much for them. they never failed me but they had a feeling to them i personally didnt like. though in the wet they were very good. the M7 is clearly an improvement to the tire! going back to dual compound was the right choice. the compound Metzeler decided to use makes this tire feel as grippy as a single compound. in comparison, my '15 Daytona 675r came with supercorsa's. this tire feels just as grippy, but even better overall in my opinion since i do a lot of city/country/twisty riding. The profile of the M7 makes turn ins very easy and smooth. You can feel that extra surface area when leaving the bike over at any angle and at much any speed. I didnt have to do any break in period at all to feel confident in this tire. I've hit sand and bits of loose gravel on the road going straight and into turns and the M7 kept me planted and confident. There is one thing i tried to replicate because i heard it in a video review from a top site and they had said the tires felt squirmy under heavy breaking. I did some very heavy breaking from 60mph and 110mph several times. one time i was aggressive to the point i activated the ABS in the front which i had never done before and the tires felt nothing less than solid. Have yet to have the rear tire slip either.

Very excellent tire! probably even compared to tires more expensive as ive used supercorsa's and M3's. the price makes it a steal. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

This is my third set of tires from Metzeler. Ive also had 2 pairs of m5's on my previous bike, a '14 Speed TripleR. I now have a '15 Daytona 675R that i have had for a year and a half now. The stock tires were Pirelli Super Corsas, which are Awesome! but i live in the midwest so i need something that had a bit better life and could handle rain and w/e else comes up on the road. I decided to give these a try. my first few months on them were just city riding n such.

After those few months i went on a trip with some friends to Tail of the Dragon. we did 800 miles just to get there. Did it in one day so that we could have more time on the Dragon. So needless to say it was a lots of interstates and riding straight. It puts the center tread through its paces lol.

For the Dragon i ran the tires at 32/32 cold. BTW these tires, from my testing, add 4psi warm. Which was Phenomenal on the Dragon! 32/32 may be the perfect temp for that riding. I typically run 36/36 in the city. The important thing to note here is... I cant even comment on how they felt during the ride through the turns on the Dragon. I was so comfortable on the road that the thought never crossed my mind. Seriously! I think that says more than anything. The entire time i was focused on pushing my limits in the turns.

Well, that was this year. I made the same trip last year too. Last year we experienced something else that put the tires to the test. Thunderstorms! On our way back from Florida. the last 3 days of the trip btw, it sprinkeld, regular rain, and thunder stormed for the entire last 3 days. I tell you, not once, did i have a moment while riding that my mind went to how the tires felt. Just like while riding through the Dragon! Through all of the rain, the tires performed so well that I was focused on actually riding the bike.

Now in the past year and a half with this one set, i have put on a bit over 4k miles. At this point the center can be seen plateauing, but it's not bad. I suspect i will get another 1k at least from the rear tire.

I am going to add some pics form the Dragon. Hope this all helps!

My new favorite tires!!
Bought these because my M5's were shot after 2 patch jobs from my commute. I ride 120 miles a day, 5 times a week, all year round. Mostly commute but some canyons here and there. So far with these have only been used commuting for the past 3 months from Vacaville,Ca to San Francisco, Ca. They inspire confidence, excitement, and help me focus more on looking for idiot cagers. They look awesome on the R6 too! Even with this year's El Nino rain storms, I feel grip, confident, and safe. I have tried Bridgestones, Michellins, but always seem to come back to metzelers due to the best wet traction. These will not let you down. Rode threw traffic, pouring rain, storm flooded drains, and still felt like I had the ludicrous button on.

The best all around tire on the market
These tires are amazing. Metzeler went with 3 band technology unlike the 5 band in M5 and improved the silica content. The tread pattern is both very good in the wet, and the mileage is better than comparable Pirelli models.

Think of them as a step up in grip and tire life from Pirelli Angel GT, as these can easily handle track conditions.

This is definitely something you want to consider for your next set of tires.

Metzeler Sportec M7 RR - ZX14R
Awesome tires! Revzilla price matched these from another site - Thank You RevZilla - cause I would really rather order from you.

Got these to replace the Sportec M5's that came stock on my ZX14R, which I replaced at 7000 miles. The M5's were great tires but these beat them hands down. They warm up pretty quick and the traction is the best I've experienced in a street tire.

The RR designation stands for Road Racing and these tires were developed with Guy Martin and from Metzler's Isle of Mann TT experiences. The change in the profile of the tire over the M5 is supposed to facilitate quicker dives into turns. This is not just hype. This seemingly small change in profile translated into a noticeable difference in the effort it took to get the Beast into turns and direction changes. It literally feels like I am riding a lighter bike. The flatter sidewall and 5% increase in the contact patch is also noticeable. In both long sweeping curves and quick switchbacks, the bike feels more planted, more stable. It takes less effort to keep the bike on the course I've set it on.

I cannot speak to the wet handling characteristics as I have not ridden in the rain yet. The M5's were great in the rain, and if Metzler's claims about the tire are true, I will not be disappointed. As to the claims about 20% greater mileage over the Sportec M5's, only time will tell, however I got 7000 miles out of the M5's, and I still had usable tread on the rear.

Overall this is an excellent tire at an excellent price that will provide you with excellent performance.

Warm up fast, get the job done
Great tire, predictable, gives confidence. Nice turn in, nice solid hold in the turns, nice transition. Warms up extremely fast. Can't say much about tread life so I'm basing that off of other reviews currently. Coming up on 1000 miles on them, they still look just barely scrubbed in. Ran them from side to side and never had a moment of doubt.
Haven't ridden in the rain with them yet.

Good grip. Good upgrade from Sportech M5
I ran two Sportech M5 rear tires on my 2006 GSXR 1000 and I must say I like the M7 better. First thing I noticed first was it stuck to the rode a lot better. I actually felt very solid going in a tight curve. Made it to the edge of the tire already and I'm very confident in this tire. I read this had 20% more tread life than the M5 which was the selling point for me. I have not rode in the rain or wet rode so I can not comment on it. Can not go wrong with this tire.

Percfection! Great all weather tires!
I ride year round in California, weather is easy on us but I have made trips to Tahoe with severe conditions, including slush (snow flocked trees) rain, heavy winds, dirt, mud gravel, and let me say these tires gave me confidence no matter what mother earth threw at me. I commute, take weekly rides to the twistys, hit freeway miles, and overall I'm very happy with them. I don't ride soft I put them to the test (stop light to stop light). For my style of riding they are exceptional, I got about 6000-7000 miles out of the rear replacing it in the morning. front has great tread, will live twice as long as the rear as it is showing steel. I run my tires at around 30 psi if i ran them higher I'm sure it would have extended the life. My local shop installs tires for 30$ ea. 2009 triumph street triple, great tires for a great ride.

revzilla's product review videos are extremely helpful with gear specifications. Sometimes pictures just don't do it justice.

Originally switched to the m7rr when my old mt60's wore out a few years back. The m7rr is a MUCH better tire, both in grip and life. The dual compound provide a nice long life while maintaining phenomenal cornering grip. This will be my 2nd time buying this tire.

I wanted a tire that doesn't need extensive warmup, works well in the rain, cold, hot, gravel, dirt and also the falling apart road ways and gravel/salt piles that appear randomly on area roads. This is not a track day/race tire, except maybe for beginners or if it's raining but not enough to use wet or rain tires.

Which do you recomend?
M7rr or pilot power 3?
I searched the web and all said that PP3 last longer
But m7rr grips a lot better...
Please..any advice?

BEST ANSWER: Go with the sport touring tires - the aggressive street/track tires are going to be a total waste, because you will never load them hard enough during normal commuting to get them up to temperature without lowing the pressures dramatically and killing tire life. For a couple of corners, you're going to be dealing with colder sport tires which grip worse than cold sport touring tires, as the sport compounds are designed to only work in the ideal temperature range (ie, hot aggressive use) whereas the sport touring tires are designed to work in all temperatures at all levels of hot/cold.

I've seen sport touring tires ridden on the track at A group pace - if you fall down on them, it's because you failed to judge the conditions appropriately, not because the tires didn't have enough grip, and you likely would have been on the ground sooner with cold hypersport or street/track tires.
I am trying to figure out what height tire for my gsxr750, I have a 190-50 on the rear right now but I feel like its a car tire being that the center is wide and flat, should I go up to a 55?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes - move to the 190-55, or a 180-55. If you're the sort that likes a much more flickable bike, the 180 is what you should try, if you'd like something that's a little more stable and planted, do the 190-55.
I'm in that weird phase where the rear needs a replacing but the front doesn't... I am planning on starting to run a sport touring tire on the rear with a more sticky front. I have heard a lot of good feedback from this combo... Currently I am running Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2's and was going to try out this new tire! Any thoughts on if running a M7RR rear with a Rosso 2 front will cause me issues? If so, I'll run a Angel GT rear/Rosso front or PR4 rear... I've just heard such good things about this tire!

Personally man, ive always replaced both front and rear just as good measure having the same tires because then both tires run the same compound with the same construction and design. I bought these for my r6 because i commute and also want to be able to go on spirited rides. From what ive found and all the research i have done, these woukd fit my riding. I would highly recommend buying the same fromt and rear tire. If your this adamit about having two different tires, be sure of choice on tires man. I dont know if this helped but best of luck.
were are this tires made? Germany or China

Hi sir, i am confuse between pilot power 3 and metzeler m7 rr. I want to use it on road and track. So can you please suggest me which tires would be good for both use.?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Get the Metzler M7's! I used to use nothing but Pilot tires bot the M7's are by far better in ever aspect including price! There are some very good track reviews for the M7 on YouTube, search and check them out.
I am trying to figure out what height tire I need , I have a 190-50 on the rear right now, im not happy with it because the center is very wide and flat almost to the point of feeling like a care tire on the rear , do I need to go to a 55 or will that help in the cornering?
Kevin G on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes go to 55 it will not feel flat anymore and tip in will be great
Where are these made? I saw one reply here but saw another site that had different answer so wanted to verify that both front and rear tires are made in germany. Is this the case? thanks

BEST ANSWER: My M7 RR rear tire is made in Germany. I haven't purchased a front yet as I still had enough tread on it, but both my front and rear K3's and M5's were made in Germany so I have to assume the M7 RR front is as well. I've got 1500 hard miles on this tire and it looks like I could get 4K out of it vs 3K out of the M5. You'll love this tire.
Hey guys, I need to replace the tires of my Ninja ZX6R 636 2005,I need some advise.
I use my bike daily to get to work so that's about 25 miles daily, might get some rain sometimes, we also like to hit the road on weekends, sometimes go hard on the highway and sometimes we like to take some curves and lean.

What would be the best for me? Pirelli Rosso Corsa? Rosso 2? Sportec M7 RR

I'm also seeking a tire that lasts longer

BEST ANSWER: Brandon M, I recommend Metzler M7 RR. The tires are great in the rain, dry and even on some dirt roads. Keep the tire pressures to manufacture specifications (Metzler) 36 front 42 rear and you will get great life out of em and awesome grip. I did 6 Trackdays on my r6 and a bunch of miles. You won't be disappointed.

Does anyone use tire warmers with these tires? If so, what temperature should you set them at?
Shawn P on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's not necessary to use warmers (I assume you're talking about track days). But if you do use warmers, you don't have to spend your first 2 laps warming up the tires. I use the "warm" setting on my Woodcraft warmers (about 135 F).
what does the "W" stand for? My tire size is 180/55/17 for my 2012 fz8 will it fit?
RODOLPHE S on Jun 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: W is the speed rating. Rated for 168+ mph...if that size is your OEM size, then yes, they will fit
