I put this rear on my '01 R6 way better grip than my last tire, granted that one was bald, slid right on to my rim without too much trouble. It heats up fast and gives me way better grab than my Dunlop did. Overall very happy with this tire and will be getting one for the front soon too

Steel Radial: Innovative belt structure with a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial carcass at 0. Patented high performance technology by Metzeler for both front and rear tires. Steel features a higher stiffness than textile and this allows the reduction of the tire weight. Steel radial belt reduces the dynamic deformation of the tire under centrifugal forces giving the tire an excellent high-speed stability. Thanks to the more uniform heat distribution, mileage is increased and wear characteristics are more uniform.
Metzeler Advanced Winding: "Metzeler Advanced Winding" is a patented system for optimum spacing between the cords of the 0 steel belt. In certain sections of the tire, the steel cords are wound with different spacing depending on the performance requirements on that particular area of the tire. On both front and rear tire the spacing is wider in the crown area for more elasticity and self-damping. For sections of the tire used for mid lean, there is increased stiffness to support fast cornering. On the shoulder area on the rear tire, the spacing is again wider for safe feedback and control when riding towards full lean.
Contour Modeling Technology: Advanced design technology of the tire contour is tuned to meet high performance riding demanded on the latest bikes. A combination of different profiles on front and rear are optimized to be complimentary at any given angle of lean. The final contour design of the tire set features the best aspects of performance for every riding style on all of the latest bikes: predictability, feedback at the limit of grip and cornering stability.
Fine Carbon Matrix: "Fine Carbon Matrix" compound structure. This new compound has been obtained using the last generation of high-performance raw materials for a quicker adaptability to a wider range of conditions, going from cold to warm, from wet to dry. This new structure ensures the highest level of grip both in dry and in wet conditions, thus maintaining extremely high mileage characteristics.
Got tired of burning through the sticky ones. (M1's and M3's). Threw these on and they stick just as well and I have yet to see a dent in the tread with the distance I ride. Overall, well balanced and a quality tire.
I'm a Sport / Tour rider averaging 10,000 miles or more a year on as many twistys as I can find. My last two sets of rubber have all been the Metzler Z6 Roadtecs. They're a great tire for my type of riding. Grip the road well in dry and wet conditions and at all speeds.
