Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20J Ultra-High Performance Radial Front Tire - Details

  • Ultra-high performance radials designed to achieve high handling performance and easier cornering using tread patterns and construction technology from MotoGP
  • Quick warm-up, even in low temperatures, and works well in cool conditions
  • Improved grip in a wider range of temperatures, at tire warm-up, and when wet, compared to Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro tires
  • Optimized tread compounds improve dry handling with high mileage maintained
  • Performance is maintained throughout the life of the tire
  • Achieves a higher level of wet performance than Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro tires, due to the tread patterns and rubber compounds
  • Mono-Spiral Belt, Silica Rich EX, RC Polymer, and Nano Pro-Tech technologies used to achieve high levels of all-around sport bike performance
  • This motorcycle tire is tubeless
  • These sport touring motorcycle tires are W rated for speeds up to 168 mph

    Tire Compounds:
  • Dual Compound (3LC) is used for both front and rear tires
  • 3LC (3 Layer Compound) provides grip performance demanded in every aspect and all riding modes
  • Center compound offers linear handling, while the shoulder compound secures high grip and solid contact feeling
  • Silica Rich EX: Increased Silica composition ratio higher than Silica Rich to provide solid wet performance
  • RC Polymer: A specific Nano Pro-Tech butadiene rubber that is specifically designed to react with silica, improving tread flexibility to provide enhanced wet traction and long wear life
  • Nano Pro-Tech: Is a Bridgestone proprietary technology that controls the interaction between polymer, filler materials (carbon black, silica) and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level
  • High grip levels from rubber compounds work in a wider range of temperatures

    Tire Construction:
  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction: A continuous single strand of cord is wrapped around the circumference and serves as a belt of a tire, eliminating overlapping of belts, seams, and joints
  • Mono-Spiral Belt construction makes the tire lighter than conventional multi cross belt construction, has more stability since it minimizes heat generation inside the tire, and gives high shock absorption
  • High Tensile Super Penetrated Cord (HTSPC): Features a 1X5 filament, rubber insulated steel Mono-Spiral Belt allowing more flexibility than other types of the steel used by competitors, reduces heat generation, and provides stability without deteriorating shock absorption
  • Steel belt construction provides good bump absorption, grip and stability during high speed riding

    Tread Pattern:
  • Wider tread grooves improve cornering as well as wet and dry grip
  • Straight center grooves improve cornering at low lean angles, especially at turn-in
  • Side grooves on shoulder improve contact feel at higher lean angles, plus wet and dry grip
  • Improved initial grip by maintaining contact area at the all lean angles
  • Contact patch is optimized to improve contact with the road

    Test Results vs Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro Hypersport Radial Tires:
  • Achieved high cornering stability by improving rear and front grip
  • Achieved sportier handling
  • Achieved wet weather stability by improving grip
  • Achieved better control in all wet weather conditions

Available in the following motorcycle tire sizes: 120/70ZR-17.

  • 120/70ZR-17 is O.E.M replacement for Kawasaki ZX636R 2013

Amazing Performance
I switched to Bridgestone S20s on my my Yamaha FZ1 KTM 990 Super Duke and Honda CB1000R. I have found them to handle extremely well confidence inspiring and great on both dry and wet surfaces. We have a lot of twisty two-lane roads and after years of riding these roads I was quite amazed at the performance and the price for the Bridgestones. Not only has tread wear been great the tires have remained excellent in performance - where some tires I've had before lost their "edge" even though they still had plenty of tread the S20's have stayed fresh in their handling.I recently traded off several bikes and got a new Yamaha FZ-09 - I was very pleased to see that it came with S20s already mounted. WooWho!
Pros: :
  • Excellent Traction
