METZELER TOURANCETM NEXT BEST ENDURO STREET TYRE ACCORDING TO GERMAN MAGAZINE MOTORRAD
The new tyre from the German brand wins the comparative review organised by the authoritative magazine, trouncing the competition thanks to optimum performance on the dry combined with excellent performance in the wet and at high mileage
Munich, 13 May 2013 – The new Metzeler TouranceTM Next was on the top step of the podium in the street enduro tyre comparative review organised by the authoritative German magazine Motorrad which put the latest addition to the TouranceTM family up against the Michelin Anakee 3, Bridgestone Battle Wing 501/502, Continental TrailAttack 2, Dunlop Trailmax TR91 and Pirelli Scorpion Trail. All of the tyres tested were used in the 110/80 R19 and 150/70 R17 sizes and mounted on six Triumph Tiger Explorer motorcycles.
The 11/2013 edition of the German magazine explains that the six tyre models were tested at two different times: first when the products were completely new and then after 4000 km in order to verify wear and mileage of both the front and the rear. Tests were also conducted on the road at high speeds (motorway and highway) and, above all, there was a test in the wet.
In particular, for the test on the dry, in order to assess the performance parameters were taken into consideration such as handling, steering precision, stability in turns, grip in leans, traction in acceleration, stability on a straight line under full load, performance with a passenger, performance in conditions at the limit and maintaining the trajectory when braking in turns.
For the testing in the wet, held on a duly irrigated track, in addition to the parameters above Motorrad also took into consideration the braking distance at a speed of 100 kph, the average travel speed and lap times, and the new Metzeler TouranceTM Next came out on top over the competition.
In conclusion, the Motorrad testers voted the TouranceTM Next as the best enduro street tyre because it is the one that demonstrated the best balanced performance in all the conditions taken into consideration during the tests, specifically thanks to the excellent performance on the dry combined with the excellent features which shone through in the wet and its high mileage.
