Overview of Bridgestone Battlax BT-021 Tire

  • The successor to BT-020 provides sport-touring riders a "luxury feel" and all-weather performance
  • Front and rear tires feature a new tread pattern designed to provide good shock absorption and to minimize vibration and noise for reduced fatigue on long rides
  • Dual-compound rear tire features Cap Base construction, which provides mileage from the center compound and grip from the shoulder compound, while enhancing tread stiffness for better grip, shock absorption and all-weather performance
  • Rear tire uses mono-spiral Kevlar®; belt for shock absorption and high-speed stability
  • Dual-crown radius improves cornering grip and stability
  • 3-D Comprehensive Tire Design Method maximizes stiffness, maintaining the same contact pressure at all lean angles for neutral handling
  • Blackwall

Bridgestone Battlax 021 Tire
This is the third set of Battlax tires that I have put on my 2003 R1100S, and they are outstanding. Excellent grip in wet or dry, and decent mileage. Will continue to buy these.

Long-lasting tire with great grip.
I've had these tires on a 2007 Kawasaki EX650 Ninja. Ran 14K on the rear tire and 16K on the front before they went bald. Never had any problems with them and the grip in wet weather was almost as good as dry.

You can race all over town or just cruise for commutes; it will do it all and last a long time. Great tires-these Bridgestones are all I will buy for my main bike.

I didn't get quite as good tread life out of this set of BT-021's as last time, but I traveled across a couple of flat states at 75-80 mph in high heat, on a Concours 14 pulling a trailer with the Dog in it so I guess it shouldn't surprise anyone that the tires are taking a beating. As always DK's service was top notch.

This is a replacement front tire for my 2011 Kawi Concours 14. Original tire gave over 8000 miles. The bike was loaded for touring, moving at a fast pace and towing a 250 pound trailer with 150 pounds of cargo and dog. Always felt stable with predictable turning and braking. Good tire for the intended purpose. Very good value and service for Dennis Kirk.

Love this tire!!!!
I ride full sportbikes (GSXR1000 & KTM RC8r) and I put on about 13,000 miles a year between them. I've been using this tire for years because it does everything. I'm not a kneedragger per say but I do like to get into the corners and get rid of those chicken strips. 75% of my riding is commuting however and I can get 10,000 miles on these tires easy. I also don't let the rain stop me when I'm riding & they perform great there as well. I love this tire and will keep buying it until I can't find it anymore!!! DK got it to me (in WI) in 1 day too! I love DK!!!
