Product Information

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Sport Touring Front Tire

  • Multi Zone Tension technology, new updated tread profiles and functional tread pattern place the Z8 Roadtec Interact at the top of the sport touring tire class
  • 8% wider final footprint area than its predecessor due to the variation of steel belt tensions and a strategically placed tread pattern which optimizes pressures in the footprint area
  • Innovative tread pattern, a widened and more elliptical footprint and a host of wear-resistant technologies not normally seen in motorcycle tires give the Roadtec Z8 Interact its best-in-segment mileage and optimal wet performance throughout the tires life
  • New patented tread pattern with strategically placed longitudinal central grooves provide ideal drainage for more than 3/4 of all lean angles in the wet. The remaining tread grooves work to add tread flexibility, extending the footprint for stability in the dry
  • Giving the best wet performance in the sport touring segment, Metzeler has pioneered Interact technology using M/O specifications to allow for variable tensions in the tire carcass. A higher tension in the center increases rolling resistance and mileage, while softer tension on either side allows for superb cornering grip in both wet and dry conditions
  • Updated design improves wear regularity which gives riders the benefit of a consistent riding performance across the tires entire life
  • (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph
  • Tubeless
  • Blackwall
     

**Note: 120/70ZR-17 M is a 58W rated tire.

Model Specific Fitment:  120/70ZR-17 E fitment for Honda NC700X.

Outstanding Road Feel

This tire inspires confidence in stability, cornering, dry traction, and wet traction. Tread life is yet to be determined. My sport bike is the 2008 Suzuki GSX650F, and I highly recommend this tire. I purchased both front (36psi) and rear (38psi) tire. Experience: Riding since I was 15yrs old. Zero track time. Training: BRC and Advance MSBC. Longest ride: 6 hours

Metzler Z8 Front Tire

I LOVE these tires! My RT1200 handles so much better than it did with PR2's. Precision steering. Excellent stability and feel in the turns. Traction..... No Problem ! Wet or Dry. Only have about 1000 miles so far, so cannot say much about tread life yet. Great price, Free shipping. I don't see myself buying any other tire for my bike again.

Fantastic Tires

I had a new set of these tires put on in Las Vegas. The Metzeler is far more confidence inspiring both in dry and wet situations. Great price, fast shipping as long as you are only in the states!I would definately purchase another set of these Z 8's again.

The best I've tried

I have an 09 C14 that I ride spiritedly in the twisties. I have tried Bridgestone 021s, Dunlop Roadsmarts and Michelin PR2s. The Z-8's offer the best grip and the stability is outstanding. If you don’t have chicken strips, you'll love these tires.

Replaced very good Metzeler Z6 tire with current Z8

Recently replaced Metzeler Z6 with the newer Z8. The Z6 gave me great highway mileage tread life with good wet weather stability and confidence The Z8 feels even better in both wet and dry road conditions. Very smooth handling, very little weight to balance. High recommendations to this tire and Motorcycle Superstore for fast dependable service. Plus haven't had a product back ordered from this company in the three years of purchasing from them.

Sorry Bridgestone, Metz has got you beat

I pushed my OE tires way past their limit of 3800 miles to 6000 and after I installed this pair of Z8's I realize I am thankful to be here writing. I did not have the grip on the OE from new thru the wear curve. This set of Z's is night and day different. Grip thru the curve, thru the left turn to right turn, solid on braking and gyro feeling is minimum. The price is up there but well worth it!!! I will be your loyal customer, thanks!

Quite Satisfied

Although this may not be helpful to others, I like 'em. They are actually too new to comment intelligently, but so far, so good. Ride with matched pair front and rear at 40 pounds each. I am ancient enough not to push the bike over to 45 degrees when cornering; my reflexes won't handle although the R1150RA will handily. Will probably replace with the same when I need new ones. Until then it's into the wind!

Interact 8's

Motorcycle Superstore shipped these tires to my BMW dealer for installation on my R1150R very quickly. They seem to be very good on the corners. Not many miles on em yet. Purchased these tires after reading all positive reviews.

I like um a lot!

I have had the Z8's on my bike(bmw k1300GT) for 6,000 miles now, and I love these tires. I still have tread on them, and expect to get another 1000 miles or so more! Previously I have had only the z6's, and there is no comparison between the two. The z8's out perform the z6's in every catagory by a considersble margin! I was going to try the P2's, but after reading some other reviews i'm gonna stick (pun intended) with the Z8's.

Great tires, superb price, shipped instantly for free

I am sold on these tires. I have tried the Z6, Z6 hybrid and now the Z8. All corner well out the the edge of the chicken strip where you scrape pegs and boots with confidence.

great tire

I installed this tire on my ST1300 and drove it 834 miles in sun and rain. Smooth, steady, and great in the rain! While I don't have a real sense of actual tread life, there was zero wear on my first 834 miles. I love this tire.

Get These Tires!

I've been using a Z8 on the rear for about a month. I ride daily, and sometimes several times per day. The tires still look brand new with about 1,000 miles on them. I ride a '13 Concours 14 with ABS, I have tested this tire in the rain and it seems to defy physics. On my previous bike I ran the Sportec M3 and while it was satisfactory for a ZZR600, this tire takes it to the next level. You will not regret buying this tire.

great tires

Everyone recommended q2 or q3 tires. As a girl who loves to ride, I needed more research and info about the performance and function. Motorcycle Superstore's first question was "what are you doing with your sv650?" Upon being told that I commuted to the gym and the fire house, and would ride in the winter (as long as the temp is 37 or above), they suggested these. Previous tires were dunlop. These have been great. Waiting to see how they perform in the cold.

Metzeler Roadtec Z8

Its difficult to give an accurate assessment, given I only have a few hundred miles on this tire, however, so far it behaves very well and makes my 03 Concours feel planted rain or shine. I only wish Metzeler made a tire to fit the rear. I would recommend this to a friend.
