    Bridgestone has developed the Battlax BT023 motorcycle tire 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 BT023 motorcycle tire provides a wider range of choices for larger bikes. The Bridgestone Battlax BT023 motorcycle tire gives comfort and stability with consistent sport-touring performance.
  • The BT023 tire provides superb wear life and wet cornering grip.
  • Meets the handling expectations of the most demanding sport riders.
  • Both the front and rear tires 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 tire, the shoulder compound gives reassuring grip through corners while the center compound with its wide contact area adds stability and smoothness when cruising. The result is a confident ride, with rich feedback and secure contact feel in all conditions.

Awesome tire!

Comments On Feb 10, 2014:I have over 10,000 miles on the front 023. I get about 7,000 from the rear tire. They wear nicely and give plenty of confidence in almost any situation. I've never had an issue with the 023 front or rear.

Great life and performance

Comments On Feb 23, 2013:I used these on a 2009 Suzuki GSX1400, previous tyres were 3 sets of Michelin Pilot Road 2 and one set of Dunlop RoadSmarts. Riding was commuting, some highway work, and a lot of hard mountain/canyon riding. I would regularly carve up much sportier bikes. Warm up time is good, no problem grinding footpegs in under 5 mins riding on a cool morning. These tyres gave me much more confidence and grip than the PR2s, and as a result I was getting that much lean that the footpegs were folded up and I was grinding the engine mounts down on the road. This is all with decent aggressive hanging off body-position. They lasted considerably longer than the Dunlops, and maybe 5% more than the Michelin. I got an average of 10,000km from a set (rear worn past wear indicators, would replace the front at the same time) front might have had another 2000km in them. I noticed no reduction in performance throughout their life. Wet weather was no issue either.

Great life, good performance.

Comments On May 05, 2012:I felt this tire was a good choice for a commuter sport bike. I got about 9000 miles out of it before I decided it was too low on center tread. Cornering traction is good for a touring tire, and handles the rain better than a Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa.

Huge step forward from the 021

Comments On Sep 09, 2011: The 021 front would cup badly by about 4500 miles and even as low as 3500 it was noticeable. These 023's with just over 6200 miles on it still has its nice round shape, not the "ledge" like the 021's would get. I am down to 1/32" from the wear bar, but very happy with these tires.

Great Tires!

Comments On Apr 21, 2011:I have these tires on my Ninja 650 and they worked great so now I am putting them on the ST1300 hopefully they will be just as good on the larger bike. I will post a a review after a few thousand miles.
