    Special Notes:

    • When selecting new motorcycle tires, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage. Please use our vehicle drop down selector at the top of this page to assist you in choosing a tire for your vehicle. Always refer to your owner’s manual for correct tire specifications for your vehicle.

      SAFETY

      Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.

      WARNING

      The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.

    • Dry grip and wear life significantly improved without sacrificing wet performance.
    • 3D cross grooves designed to optimize rigidity and improve contact with the road.
    • Dual compound front tire (3LC) with revised profile generates higher grip at lower lean angles.
    • New Enhanced Micro-contact-patch Compound (EMC) technology used for both front and rear shoulder compounds. EMC increases grip potential and improves thermal stability to make sure the tire performance remains consistent as temps go up.

    4th set
    Mostly ridden for track days. 08 CBR100RR Lasts about 3-4 days on a rear, double for the front. Quick Intermediate pace. Overheated the rear a time or two but for the most part a solid performer for the price.

    Repeat buyer
    I’ve not mounted it yet, but I had them on my previous SuperdukeR and they’ll go on my new 1290R as soon as the stock Metzelers wear out. Like the title says, I’ve had them before and if they kept making them I’d buy them again.

    Came with the bike I bought used.
    I bought a Ducati 848 and it came with these tires. They had about 2000 miles on them. I have not ridden it on the street, but took it to a track day and I would say these tires compare well to Dunlop Q3's which I normally use. I am a mid B level rider. The tires showed really good wear and grip texture (no cold tearing) after they were warmed up in a couple laps. They heated up to about 100 in fhe front and 115 in the back with 32 and 30 lbs of pressure respectively. I would definitely recommend them as a relatively lower price street/track tire.

    Bridgestone S21 front
    First Bridgestone tires ever for me. So far very impressed overall. Great feedback from the front, feel solid from off. Can't fault the dry grip and inspire confidence on wet roads as well. With the promotional offer doubt a better deal can be found.

    Best tire dollar for dollar
    This is a great tire. I have been running them on my S1000R for some time now. I get over 3k on the, they are great in rain and stick very well.

    Great tire
    I was always using sport touring tires which has flat profile so when I switched to s21, it felt so easy to lean in corners. Quick warm up and good grip.
