Weight: 4.2 kg at the front, 7.1 kg at the rear

Country of Manufacture: Germany

Race track (94 points, 2nd place): The M7 RR is very handy even when it is rolled up, and just as quickly a trustworthy feeling for the adhesive reserves is there. I especially like the feedback from the front wheel. Its construction allows driving tight lines, and the convincing stability is maintained even after a few hard laps.

Country road (new: 93 points, 1st place; after 4000 km: 90 points, 2nd place): Unhandy, restrained feedback and poor steering precision: the freshly baked M7 RR has completely abandoned properties that were chalked up on the predecessor M5. Even over the course of the kilometers, the superb properties on the country road remain at a high level.

Wet test (86 points, 4th place): Despite the high silica content, slides earlier than the top trio, but remains easy to control.

Wear (84 points, 2nd place): The balanced mixture, without front, with bicompound at the back, guarantees high mileage.

Conclusion: With the M7 RR pushes Metzeler back in the ring. The successor to the hapless M5 is particularly convincing in everyday life, where it burns even the power of high-powered cars safely onto the asphalt.

MOTORRAD verdict: 1st place – 447 points
