Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport Touring Radial Front Tire - Details

  • Consistent performance between touring and sport riding
  • Long wear life, high level of wet performance for touring, and high performance similar to a sport tire
  • Tread pattern, construction and compound provide substantial wear life - 30% longer than Bridgestones's BT-021 tire
  • Mono-Spiral Belt, HTSPC, Silica Rich EX, RC Polymer, and Nano Pro-Tech technologies used to achieve high levels of all-around performance
  • Combination of tread pattern and compound supports stable cornering even in wet conditions
  • Strong stability in high speed cruising, with grip and steering control like a sport tire in sport mode riding
  • Confident and comfortable riding with solid mileage for touring
  • Comfortable cruising for touring with good bump absorption and less noise
  • Richer feedback and a more secure contact feel in all conditions
  • This motorcycle tire is tubeless
  • These sport touring motorcycle tires are W rated for speeds up to 168 mph


Tire Compound:

  • Silica Rich EX: Increased Silica composition in the compound at a 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
  • Silica Rich Ex compound and RC polymer offer strong wet performance and wear life


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:

  • Angle groove arrangement provides excellent wear life
  • V groove in center area provides rich contact feel when braking
  • T groove provides linear handling

Fantastic sport tire
5
I have been riding sport bikes my entire life the BT016 was a great tire the BT-023 combines the edge BT-016 compound with a harder center compound for unprecedented tire life for my 175hp GSXR 1000 very predictable and confident tire. BOO-YA.

Great Tire!

I just bought another one. I run this tire on a Triumph 1050 Sprint. I got over 13000 miles out of the first one. Had confidence in the wet right up to the end. I do some touring and it worked great in the mountains.

Seems like a great tire so far in all areas but I have to wait a little longer to see how tread wear is. I would recommend this tire.

Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport Touring Radial Front Tire - Question and Answers

I bought from you a while ago a BT-023 tire for my 2003 Kawi ZRX 1200. I love the grip of the tire but found out the tire scallops on the left side after a couple thousand miles. It is time for a new skin but wonder if I should switch brands? I keep the air pressure at 32 PSI and wonder why I have this problem. do you find this feedback from other customers. Please advise.

Yes the tire was balanced and put on a by a Kawi dealer. This happened also with the original tire, I explained to him before they put on the new 023. He checked the wheels for it being bent and even checked to see if the frame was in line found all were correct. I guess my question to you is do the Bridgestone tires themselves tend to have this problem? It happened more than once.
