Metzeler Sportec M3

Tried A set of Metz Sportec M3's on the hornet after Pirelli Diablo Corsa III's. Very happy with them. The Corsa's were way too soft for my needs They squared off and ran out of tread too quickly. I have 2 track sessions on these already and they still look good. I expect much more mileage from this harder compound, but they have proven to be more than adequate for my level of riding.

Should be cheap too. I think the current model is the M5, so these are probably on sale at suppliers.

I run them on my Superhawk and really like them. Nice tire.

Used up 2 sets on the Speed Triple. Great tires in my book too.

That'll work........

Very good sport tyres that turn a reasonable life. Getting phased out now so there should be good prices around.


And they have a cool tread pattern!

my last set were sportec m3's. Nice tires. I may have ran them too long. the front took on a decidedly triangular cross section.

Not sure if it's my imagination, but I found the bike easier to flick on these. I think they have a pointier/more triangular section to begin with.
