If Metzler makes Z6's for your bike, go for it
My 1200RS came stock with Z4's, which is a great tire. But Z6's offer a nice improvement in dry and wet traction
Been running Z6's last 2000 miles, Z6's seems to offer same long wear as Z4's

Well, they make a bunch of different Pilot's. Most people have the Pilot Sports. The Pilot Powers are the HOTTEST tire out right now. The Michelin race team uses them for their wet racing tire. Most places can't even get their hands on these tires for like a 2-3 week back order.

TWISTY, please key in here!!

My SV had MEZ4's stock and I wasn't too impressed with them. I run Bridgestone BT040 now.
