Triumph Sprint RS Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Metzeler SPORTEC M7 RR given 93% (180-55-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 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.

Terrific tire. Went to these after Metzler Z6, and Pirelli Diablo Stradas, both of which were quite good but gave no warning before wearing to the threads. I used to completely deflate the rear tire just so I could physically feel how thin it was getting.

The Roadsmarts are very neutral steering, which took some getting used to. They're way more grippy on the sides and give huge confidence dry and wet. I probably get about the same mileage, (around 6k) and they will eventually square off like any tire, but there are wear bars and the squaring seems to have much less effect on the handling. Would definitely buy again. Also looking at the BT0-23's as I would like to have quicker steering.

These are very stiff tyres, and quite hard to fit by hand. Once bedded in they are superb on the road, very precise and grippy. They are far superior in the dry to Michelin PR 3, and at least as good in the wet , and at less than £130 a pair they should be my first choice for replacement. Unfortunately the rear is squared off and almost down to the wear bars at less than 5K despite avoiding motorways. Like someone else says a 2CT version is needed to make these a serious touring tyre. If you can get them cheap and don't do a huge milage they are recommended. And don't rule them out for novice trackday use.
