Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A40
This adventure-touring tire is designed for big adventure motorcycles. Intended primarily for on-road use, it benefits from a mono-spiral belt for a good footprint on the pavement. For those who do venture off the beaten path, the deep tread pattern is designed to provide good traction for hard-packed surfaces.
Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S20 EVO
A new version of Bridgestone’s S20 sportbike tire, the S20 EVO features a three-layer compound on the back tire. This is designed to provide good grip on soft shoulders while remaining firm in the center for good mileage. Bridgestone also says it provides a bigger footprint front and rear, so it hooks up well.
Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS10
This tire is intended for track day or aggressive street riding use. It has minimal tread pattern, but Bridgestone says it’s beveled to provide a good footprint with a lot of grip. As well, Bridgestone notes it offers slightly better durability than other tires in the category, so you can get some mileage on the track or the street. Finally, this tire benefits from a lot of MotoGP technology with its dual compounds.
