Given 90% while driving a Kawasaki ZZR1400 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
FFF model 15 plate zzr14
2nd set of these very good tyres that i would recommend.M7RR F & R
they warm up quickly and give good feedback in all conditions - total trust in the front as well in all conditions..
I run full power and keep the traction KTRC in the 1 position.
I keep the tyres at the recommended 42 front n rear. you can feel the difference if they are down in pressure with the turn in.
Generally get approx 3000 miles out of the back with a bit more on the front is capable but change them together at the same time due to the speed n all - best to stay safe with the tread!....especially due to what happens with the right wrist. the bike is awesome- recommend it to everyone.
I feel a lot better on these than the original S20's she came on - a noticeable step up in performance and longevity even tho I do lets say spirited riding constable in the corners n straights
I was pleasantly surprised how well these last - and of course got again - pricey i know but worth it.
My tyre dealer insists that I should be running mich power 3's but he is a michelin man.
he says these are sports tyres and not recommended but i am very comfortable with them
I used to ride BT023's on my 08 zzr14 that were fine, a great tyre but the 14 needs more and i still feel these metz M7rr are a good measure above
hope this helps as I always look to hear what other nutters are running as well

One of the best 'real world' sports bike tyres you can get in my opinion. I have used them for everything from touring to trackdays and they have been great. Grip front and rear is predictable, with plenty of feedback if you are pushing your luck. Unusually for a sporty tyre they are also pretty decent in the wet with a secure, planted feel. Longevity is also very good for this sort of tyre. Recommended.

Admittedly these were fitted to replace the OE Dunlops which were so old that naming them might not be fair, but I've been really pleased with these tyres. Lots of laps of the TT course, Bishopscourt ractrack in standing water conditions and Northern Ireland roads have not produced any moments of concern. I guess these tyres are designed for bikes with alot more power and speed, and as such anything I or the SV have thrown at them has been well managed.
It's good to buy a brand that supports the Ulster Grand prix so strongly, but there's no trade off in tyre ability. These are grippy from the get-go and I feel confident in them, which is useful when I'm lacking the power to trouble bigger bikes on the straights. So it's braking and cornering that give these tyres a work out, and it's been all good. They are wearing evenly, but I've no isea what they'll be good for. I'm sure 5000 miles will be easily acheived, but I'll have wait to wait and see.
They look pretty cool as well, is that's an issue!

i really enjoyed these Tyre's they break traction in the wet a little under power cornering but that's it otherwise solid. went through a puddle of water from farmer spray at 200 km/h without it budging.

Given 93% while driving a Honda CBR954RR 3 (190/55 R17) on mostly country roads for 4,000 spirited miles
Amazing tyre, grip extremely well in the dry and good enough in the dry. They've inspired masses of confidence, great tyre. In my experience Metzeler M7RR are an overall better tyre than Pilot Power 3's, Pilot Road 3's, BT023's (all tyres ive tried in the past).

Amazing tyres for a sport riding style. Got the pair fitted on my Yamaha XJ6 and it was real confidence boost. Never had a single slip with these tyres. When warmed up properly these are track grip level. Fast highways corners around 180km\h with no drama. The dry grip on these are on another level, I got to embarasse anyone riding on sport touring tyres with the M7. Go to ride alongside with anyone who praises the Angel GT, Pilot Roads and they will feel ashamed of themselfs.
Wet surface grip was enough for safe rides, even though I never pushed hard on very wet surfaces. Few rides under heavy rain and not a single problem. Silica compound did it's job.
Downside - Thread life. The harder compound on the center o the rear tyre could be wider (it's only about 4cm wide) and harder. As I couldn't always be doing corners the center of the tyre didn't wear evenly with shoulders (quite understandable) and by the time I had to replace the rear tyre there was plenty of rubber on the shoulders.
Rear tyre did 7.000 km.

Given 93% while driving a Triumph Sprint RS (180/55 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Not much to say, just great modern allroand sport tires. I bpuggt them because they were the winner of the big Motorrad sport tires test. Pretty good in the wet, great feeling. Chicken strips on the rear tire were already gone in the first 50 miles on them because of the confidence, even though I am aware new tires need to be "scrubbed in", grip seemed endless, even on colder road temperatures. Next week, I will take them to the track, and I am feeling quite confident, even if it's going to be wet.
