Bridgestone just announced its BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23, a new sports radial motorcycle tire for street use that will be available in January 2024. The 2-wheel rubber is the latest product in Bridgestone’s BATTLAX range of premium motorcycle tires, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Delivering various performance improvements over its predecessor, the tire is engineered to meet the requirements of sporty riding on asphalt, featuring increased levels of exceptional dry grip performance when riding on circuits or cornering on mountain roads.
The S23 turns faster lap times in both wet and dry track conditions compared to the S22 for confident traction in rain or shine and employs a newly designed compound in the edge portion of the tread to make better contact with the road when banking at sharp angles and maximize edge grip when cornering, allowing the rider to take their sports riding performance to the next level. The advanced technology and world-class engineering ultimately offers more performance without sacrificing wear. The updated pattern, incorporating the Pulse Groove Technology, provides improved stability and handling feel that contributes to a maximized riding experience even in case of difficult road conditions and wet weather, granting riders enhanced grip, precision handling and, ultimately, confidence.
Bridgestone says it is committed to supporting the development of a safe and enjoyable motorcycling culture, offering peace of mind by advancing a niche global, premium strategy that utilizes products including its BATTLAX brand premium motorcycle tires. Through these efforts, the company strives to achieve the corporate commitment of “Emotion: Committed to inspiring excitement and spreading joy to the world of mobility” and “Ease: Committed to bringing comfort and peace of mind to mobility life,” described in “Bridgestone E8 Commitment.”
