Reviews by Source
31 reviews, 4.7 of 5 stars. One rider says the tire is perfectly balanced, there is quick turn in, good feedback, maybe not as soft as the Michelin Road 5. On a BMW S1000XR, tires turn in with confidence, come up to temperature quickly, don't get too hot. On a 2016 KTM Duke, and the tires inspire confidence. Another used to run the 2CT, like the Metzeler Sportec M7 RR better, warm up quickly, grip very well. Another says have all the grip you need. On a CBR F2, like them over the M5 interacts. On a 09 XR1200 Sporster, control in the wet is very good, ride is very soft. Recommend for group B track, not group A.
34 reviews, 4.8 of 5 stars. On a Honda 636cc, in wet very planted, great grip for any surface. On a BMW K1600 GTL, got 4,500 miles, ride on twisty mountains.
Test was first done on a track. Grip was really good with no hint of sliding or squirming. Felt the handling was similar to the Q3. Main criticism was the Metzeler M7 did not have the same strength as the Dunlop Q3. Under hard breaking had squirm in the front tire. For the third track day the tires lost some grip, but that was to be expected.
