Bridgestone has been making tires since the 1930's when it was founded by Shojiro Ishibashi, whose last name when translated into English means "Stone Bridge." With their factory located in Japan, Bridgestone has formed alliance with the metric motorcycle manufacturers and has developed many bike-specific tires, such as the Exedra tire made for the Honda Gold Wing GL1800. Bridgestone has an extensive family of motorcycle tires with premium offerings for Metric Cruisers, Adventure bikes, Sport Touring and Hypersport. All Bridgestone tires are made in one factory in Japan, where Quality Control is of the utmost importance. This also assures great consistency when replacing tires versus a manufacturer with production facilities all over the world. As the current supplier of tires for the MotoGP, we know that Bridgestone must be doing something right.

More info on Bridgestone Motorcycle Tires:

Welcome to our Bridgestone tire family overview and guide at RevZilla.com.

At a high level, for those of you new to Bridgestone motorcycle tires, they've been around since the 1930s. Japanese manufacturer of tires, all of their tires for motorcycle are built within one factory. Just like a lot of the products that we see come out of Japan, quality control is very, very key to them.

The reason why, if you're a moto fan, you might see Bridgestone everywhere, besides the fact they make a wide range of tires, they fit a wide style of bikes, they are also the official sponsor of Moto GP, the official tire of Moto GP.

The cool part, especially if you're on a sport bike is you see that Moto GP race bred prototype technology that gets vetted out at the highest level of riding, and then trickles down into a lot of the consumer oriented products.

The really five key families of product from Bridgestone Tires, and I have five tires here on the street oriented side in front of me.

On my left are the tires that are going to be a little more towards the big bike focus. I have the Bridgestone Battle Wing which is the 80/20 dual sport tire. There's also a Trail Wing for lighter bikes. That's going to be on on road-off road tire.

Moving down underneath that, I have the Bridgestone Excedra Max tire, which is really a cruiser oriented tire for metra cruisers.

You have the Excedra Cruiser, which is a V-Twin tire, and then you're also going to have the Excedra Gold Wing tire, which most people don't know is now the GL-1800 OEM fitment for Gold Wings. A 1200, a 1500 and an 1800 fitment. These are going to be heavier bike, longer distance all season tires.

Staying within that theme, thinking about that technology, now we move over to the sport technology.

Let's start with the more well rounded sport option. This is the BT23. A very popular option, all season sport riding, high mileage sport riding, but also a sport touring option. It comes in a GT size which will handle something like your FJR 1300, your R1200 RT from BMW, but really we see this in a lot of normal instances for something like a VFR, or really for a guy who's riding a sport bike commuting on it, 800 to 1,000 cc range. A phenomenal tire, handle all the seasons really well.

Remember, we have a video on all these different tires and families of tires, so make sure you watch them and refill in all the blanks that we're leaving out at a high level in this guide.

Moving on from that, you see some of the more popular tires, the ones that we really sell a lot of from Bridgestone.

You have the Battlax family of hyper sport tires. Really three tires within that family.

You're going to have the BT16, which has been around for a long time. It's typically an OEM fitment tire for your R6, your R1, your gixxer type bikes.

From there you move to the newer S20, which is a dual compound tire using upgraded technologies. Better wet grip and longevity, but it's also what I would consider a 90/10 sport to track. You're going to be riding in different scenarios of street riding 90% of the time, but you can do a track day on the S20 or the BT16.

From there you get into some of the consumer facing race tires from Bridgestone.

Really these are going to be track tires that start with the BT003RS, which is a racing street tire designed for 70% on the track, 30% on the street.

Then you kind of go from there with the racing pro and different tires, some of which are only available on the track.

From a price point you're looking on the sport tires that are all starting around $100 for a the front, right around $100 for a rear. As you go up into some of the higher mileage tires the prices can tend to increase.

One thing I didn't mention also about this race tire, the BT003 is that it's designed to heat up quickly for high grip on the track to really be a consumable race bred tire. Keep that in mind if you're looking.

Remember, like I said before, watch all the different videos on the Bridgestone family of tires as I dive in at a much more granular level.

The purpose of this video is really to de-mystify really your starting point. Depending on what you ride and what your budget is, hopefully you can dive in to one of these family of tires be able to narrow in to find the right motorcycle tire for the right application for the right budget for what you're riding.
