      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.

    Best buck per mile tire for r1100rt
    After burning up the metzeler me880 in 7k and 9k miles, I tried the bt023 and got over 11k miles. The dual compound makes a huge difference in the center wear of the tire. With the marathon costing twice as much and getting fewer miles, the decision was a slam dunk.

    Great all-rounder
    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 wear, good grip.
    I felt this tire was a good choice for a commuter sport bike. I got about 9000 miles out of the rear tire 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.

    BT023 Rear Tire
    The Bridgestone BT023 rear tire is a very good tire. Great grip and wears very well. I don't like the front as it wears out way to soon.

    Excellent Wear, Great price
    I have a Honda ST1100A, Yes that 1998 ABS model with hard to find tires. I am also a year-round SF Bay Area rider (three seasons for the rest of the country up north) Having put server brands and make of tires on my bike I have come to know a great performance and an value. The Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 prvide the grip needed to lay it over as far as I want while still maintaining good wear life. Wet weather grip inspires confidence as well. I will be purchasing these tires again when I have to get a new set.

    Much improved from the BT021
    The 023's don't cup like the 021's did, I find they have better turn in qualities and feel much better longer as well. The 021's would cup so badly that ride quality was terrible by the 4000 mile mark. The 023's while they still are only lasting 4000-4500 they feel really good throughout all of those miles. Bridgestone did a really good job with these, fyi this is about the same mileage I got out of the PR2 but the 023's turn better and feel stickier.
