Yamaha MT 07 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Metzeler Roadtec 01 SE given 70% (180-55-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 spirited miles
Replaced my Spirit ST’s with Metzeler Roadtec 01 SE and now regret it. The Roadtecs look good and have excellent reviews but they are too hard and too heavy - they ride like they’re filled with concrete. The SE (Sports Edition) version of the Roadtecs are not sporty. I found Avon Spirit ST to be better tyres. Those are grippy and durable but also relatively lightweight and more compliant over uneven road surfaces. If you only ever ride on brand new tarmac then Roadtecs might be OK. If you enjoy the occasional rip around some twisty B roads or just want a smoother ride then Avon Spirit ST’s are a much better choice. They outperform Roadtecs, cost less and are made in the UK.

Writing about the Avon Spirit ST given 97% (180-55-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
These tires transformed the ride on my Yamaha 700. The Pirellis I had before them were twitchy and always made me nervous. The Spirit ST are stable and remain grippy all weathers. The bike is still fun to ride fast and no less chuck-able riding twisty roads, just more predictable. The wear rate has been very good and so was the price. I also think they look great - especially that MotoGP-like rear. Will definitely replace them with the same again.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Road 3 given 90% (180-45-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 16000 average miles
They were on my new Yamaha MT07 from new 3 years ago. I cannot believe the mileage I have managed to date. Over 16,000 miles of predictable and solid performance. I've had 2 punctures repaired on the rear and now have decided to replace it as it's just started to square off and has collected another nail. The front looks as good as the day it went on the rim. I cannot rate these tyres highly enough.
