Metzeler Tourance Next sports-touring tyres designed in close collaboration with the BMW R 1200 GS
Metzeler has been a BMW development partner for the GS family since 1980 with Adventure products and since 1999 with the Tourance family products.
Metzeler Tourance Next with Dual Compound is the third generation of the Tourance range and was specifically designed for latest generation of adventure touring bikes. It is original equipment on the BMW R 1200 GS in sizes 120/70 R19 and the 170/60 R17 and was developed directly in cooperation with the Bavarian manufacturer.
Metzeler Tourance Next sets a new standard for the adventure rider where grip on wet roads is concerned as well as in terms of safety thanks to the new compounds developed for the front and rear which work in synergy with new grooves arranged optimally on the tread.
Metzeler Tourance Next guarantees excellent wet grip, conveying a sensation of total safety to the adventure rider in any condition, even when the asphalt is dirty and slippery.
The structure and profiles of Metzeler Tourance Next were specifically designed for large new concept adventure bikes with particular attention to guaranteeing excellent stability even at high speeds and with the motorcycle loaded down with top box and passenger.
The profiles were designed to absorb bumps in the asphalt in order to provide greater vehicle stability and for optimal interaction with the ABS and braking system. The particularly resistant structure of the carcass creates a rigidity which translates into greater and easier handling of the motorcycle.
The combination and interaction of the new tread and latest generation compounds result in a significant improvement compared to its predecessors in the Tourance family in terms of mileage thanks to better and more even tread wear.
