Was looking at replacing the Metzler Roadtec Z6 Sport Touring tires on my 2002 R1150RS and noticed that Metzler now offers a new tire called the Metzeler Roadtec Z6 Interact Sport. According to the Metzeler sight the Interact Sport is:
"The successor of Roadtec Z6, able thanks to the revolutionary INTERACT™ technology to offer the best performance answering the new needs of the modern sport touring riders.
New INTERACT™ technology guarantees a progressive and intelligent pressure distribution all along the profile ensuring performance exactly where needed for high adaptability to different riding styles
Flexibility of usage thanks to new highly efficient compound mixing technology designed to give maximum stability in all riding conditions
Increased silica / carbon balck ratio improves total wet behaviour for maximum confidence in every weather condition."
Sounds like the equivalent of the Michelin Pilot Road 2 with multiple compounds.
Metzeler still offers the 'old' Roadtec Z6 (less $$). So not sure whether to go with the new or old tire.
Anybody installed the new ones yet, or concluded one is a better choice than the other?
