Honda nc700x review, Metzeler tires worn out, new Dunlop Roadsmart 2 tires.


After riding 7000 kilometers on my Honda nc700x,
the Metzeler Roadtec tires were more than ready for replacement. I was not fully satisfied with the grip on
the Metzeler tires so I asked my Honda dealer for a better choice. He recommended Dunlop Roadsmart 2 which has
a deeper pattern and softer rubber mix on the edges. The Roadsmart tires look really good and I’m
hoping they are effective as well. I also replaced the front tire, hoping to
get an optimal performance. There seems to be a different curving on the
new tires, a typical Dunlop profile. New tires means new bike they say. Better
drive carefully the first 100 kilometers or so. Then I tried them on gravel and felt a better
experience than with Metzeler tires. But you surely don’t get off-road performance
from any of them. In dry weather they have a firm grip and the
Roadsmart is well known for its performance on wet roads. So my conclusion, Dunlop Roadsmart 2 is a
better choice for my bike and my kind of driving, and I think my co-channels will agree on that.
