Battlax S-20's

Here's a few pics of the newest tire from Bridgestone, the battlax S-20's, after two track days and some road miles. I give them two thumbs up! Heat up quick and perform amazingly.

Do you have any pictures of the front tire? How is the wear on the front tire? I know the BT-016 front tire would wear before the rear, especially when doing a trackday. The S20 tires seem to definitely be an upgrade from the BT-016 tires.

I'd say however that front and rear are holding up well.

This reassures me on the decision I made on these. Ordered a set last weekend from spotbiketrackgear. Got a box thursday but only had one tire in it. Shipping mix up. Anywho, got them for combined street and track use, and heard they were somewhat of an upgrade from the BT003RS's. Thus, can't wait to get them put on whenever they send me the front.

Yes great tire. Have put down around 1600 street miles up and down the mountains here in Korea. Superb edge grip, very stable, good feeling from the front and they seem to hold up a bit better than the BT016.

From the pictures they look to be holding up very well and wearing evenly (Front & Rear)

You made a good choice. I got these to replace my stock Dunlop's a month ago and i love 'em. You'll be happy and confident around even corner.

What psi were you running on the track, and what do you weigh?
