Hi folks !
I need some input/advice/opinion !
I am at the end of life of my stock tires for the Versys 1000 with about 8 000 km done on them.
I am looking at replacement tires and I thought of the Metzeler Z8 and the Pilot Road 4.
My choice is almost set on the PR4 now, but I am wondering if I should go with the GT or the regular ones. Michelin advices the regular ones.
The BMW R1200RT comes with PR4 GT, and weighs 259kg (wet), w/o paniers.
The Versys weighs 239kg (wet) according to the most trusted motorcycle website (
), also without paniers. I also happen to have two large paniers and a top case.
With so little weight difference, should I stick with the regular PR4s or should I go to the GT spec ?
*** Both tire type are the same size and fits on my bike (120/70ZR17 - 180/55ZR17 ) ***
Thanks for your input ! I want a good tire that'll last a while on highway but will also feel great when having some fun in the twisties, and feel secure !
