Metzeler Racetec RR in classic formats
Historic racing tires
Metzeler is expanding its Racetec RR racing tire series to include 18-inch formats for classic racing motorcycles.
The racing tire is now available Metzeler Racetec RR in the compound variant K1 available in three 18-inch formats.
- 110/80 ZR 18 M / C TL (58W)
- 150/65 ZR 18 M / C TL (69W)
- 160/60 ZR 18 M / C TL (70W)
All tire dimensions are offered in the compound variant K1, the softest of the Racetec series.
The new racing tires for classics have already passed their first test: At the Bol d’Or Classic on September 16, 2017 in Le Castellet / F, Marcel Kellenberger and Stefan Merkens won the Bolliger Classic Endurance Racing Kawasaki GPZ 1100 equipped with Metzeler Racetec RR Teams.
With the Racetec RR, Metzeler would like to meet the requirements of the riders of supersport motorcycles from the 1960s to 1990s and cites the strengths of this tire:
- excellent grip in all conditions, both on the road and on the racetrack. The tread mixture and the structure of the tire profile should ensure even heat distribution from the tread to the sidewalls, even on long straights
- Precision and stability at high speed. The tire has a high level of self-damping and thus absorbs the unevenness of the asphalt
- Lasting performance at the best level throughout the life of the tire.
8 motorcycle tires for classics and youngtimers in the test
Dimensions 100 / 90-18 and 120 / 90-18
6 pairs of sports tires in the test
Sports tires on Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
The Metzeler Racetec RR is also able to tame the often aggressive driving behavior of classic superbikes. tame. The manufacturer sees the reason for this primarily in the damping properties of the carcass and tread. In addition, the Metzeler Racetec RR has a bi-compound tread on the rear wheel, which should offer excellent grip in corners and outstanding stability at high speeds.
Also good news: The Metzeler Racetec RR is approved for normal road traffic in all dimensions and mixtures with the speed index W.
