Bridgestone has developed the new Battlax BT-023 tyre for consistent high-level performance in both touring and sport riding. By combining good wear life and wet performance for touring, with the grip and steering control for sport riding, the Battlax BT-023 provides a wider range of choices for larger bikes.
Full Spec Sport Touring Radial offering consistent performance between touring and sport riding.
Consistent sport-touring performance: Bridgestone aims to strengthen its position in the sport-touring sector of the replacement motorcycle tyre market with the launch of the Battlax BT-023 in February 2010. The advanced new tyre significantly upgrades the performance of the
BT-021 it replaces, both in the key touring areas of mileage and wet performance, as well as by meeting the handling expectations of the most demanding sport riders.
Mileage – wet performance: The tyre provides superb wear life and wet cornering thanks to the re-designed angle-groove pattern and Silica Rich Ex compound with “RC polymer”.
Comfort and stability: Both the front and rear tyres are constructed with Bridgestone’s proven Mono Spiral Belt (MSB) technology, providing top-level grip, shock absorption and straight-line stability at speed.
With a 3 Layer Compound (3LC) on the rear tyre, the shoulder compound gives reassuring grip through corners while the centre compound with its wide contact area adds stability and smoothness when cruising. The result is a confident ride, with rich feedback and a secure contact feel in all conditions.
New tread pattern and rubber compound deliver long mileage, high level of wet performance, a comfortable ride, and good grip.
3LC (Dual Compound) technology for rear tire provides good stability and wear life in center and strong grip and bump absorption in shoulder of tire.
Silica plus RC polymer (assists silica effect and controls rubber properties) enhances wet performance and wear life.
