Bridgestone Battlax BT-003 RS Rear Tires 4.8 5 21 21
Great tire for small bikes I bought this tire to use on my Supermoto, I use it on the street so a slick is no good, but still track it monthly so it has to be sticky. This tire also comes 150 which is a plus for me. Would buy again, and most likely will. June 29, 2015
Great tire Needed some track rubber for Ninja 250 - this was an awesome choice! Tons of grip! September 22, 2014
great tyres hands down. I have used 2 sets of the bt23 and they are great all round. Hard compound in the center and sorter on the sides. A great touring or commute tyre. I got about. 9,000km and they have another 1000km left. I have a yamaha FZ6R and most of my riding is to work and home and spirited riding on the weekend. I have taken them to through a fair bit of water and no issues. April 1, 2014
Awesome Rear Tire For All Sport Bikes Bang for the buck! This tire Sticks to the Black Top. Can't wait for my first Track Day. Def Recommend this specific tire. January 14, 2014
Good Track Day Tire on SV650 I purchased a set of these tires (120/70-17 front, 150/60-17 rear) for track day riding only on my SV650. Performance in terms of handling and grip is similar to Dunlop Q2 tires. I have about 300 track miles on the tires now and, as expected, the rear tire slides easier than when it was new. Most of the tread depth in the center of both tires remains and I may be able to get another 100 miles out of them before the edge is used up. Bottom line: I'm pleased with the tires - especially at the Revzilla price. August 19, 2013
Sticky tire with great feedback! I bought a set of these for my cbr600f4i track bike about a month ago. I did one track day at Spokane raceway park in July and was very impressed by every aspect of these tires. They warm up quickly(half a lap), they stick great, and they give you lots of feedback. I was able to drift the back tire out a couple of times in a controlled manner. Very confidence inspiring! August 19, 2013
Good track tire, Ok street tire On my second set of these. Good track tire with good feedback. Very predictable. Center wears pretty quick on the street compared to other non racey tires..... May 20, 2013
Great Track Tire Bought this along with the front tire for my first race/track experience. They were great! Very sticky! Definitely helped improve my confidence and worked great even the the track was very cold all day.Highly recommend as you can't beat the price. May 16, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Scott G: Curious to see if the 003s offer a noticeable improvement in dry performance Feb 11, 2015
A S: awesome tires Nov 9, 2014
Tristan S: I was looking for a sport oriented tire for track days. This tire did a fine job on my SV. The wet traction is not what I am used to having run on Michelin Pilot Road and Power tires for the last two years, but it was stable at a slower pace. Dry traction was fantastic and I was very confident in these tires. Oct 13, 2014
Roger F: the bridgestone tyre, is a very good tyre Jul 15, 2014
Jose B: Awesome tire! Upgraded from a 50 Aspect to a 55 and the turn in on my 2008 1000rr is so much cleaner and sharper. Stickier tire than the BT-016 which is an amazing tire to begin with, but this one just took it to another level. Apr 4, 2014
C J: Ninja 300 track day Mar 19, 2014
James L: Cause they is badass! Feb 15, 2014
Travis N: awesome track tire!!! Jan 17, 2014
Stephen H: Sticky, holds in the tight turns. Aug 10, 2013
Keenan K: Because the reviews I've read on this tire are great and you don't have it in 130 70 17. If there was a tire in 130 70 17 of this tire, you guys would get a LOT more ninja 500 buyers Aug 9, 2013
A shopper asked: I am planning on doing a bunch of track days on my Ninja 300 this season. I currently have the Pilot Road 3 in the 120/ 150 combo. I am planning to upgrade to a more performance oriented tire for riding twisties and doing track days. From my reserach, I see that 120/150 combo does nothing in terms of performance. So I am looking at the 110/140 combos again.

Which tires would you recommend?

1. PD Rosso 2 110/140
2. BT 003 RS 110/140

Andrew S asked: I'm currently using the Dunlop Q3 tires on my 2008 CBR 1000 RR. I don't really commute on my bike I really only ride on the weekends in the canyons with my buddies. I do plan on going to some more track days this year and was wondering if these tires have noticeably more grip than the Q3's. I've never really had any problems with the Q3's (I mean their excellent tires) I've only broke the traction of the rear ever so slightly once when I was taking a hard left turn through a canyon, but it was definitely a slide. I know on the video reviews these tires are a 70-30 compound so my question is do they truly have more grip than the Q3's?(I don't care about longevity) Jan 26, 2014

nick b: Hi Andrew,
I haven't used the Q3's before but I have used the Q2's. I liked the BT-003's a lot. Keep in mind the temperature of the track you are going to be using the tires on. From my experience the more street orientated tires tend to become slippery on hot track days and tend to kick out when powering out of turns. If you are an aggressive rider and are look to do some track days on hot spring/summer days i would recommend going with the BT-003 Pro's rather than the RS's. Other wise the RS's are great for street riding if you don't care about wear. Hope this helps.

Casey F: The 003 is a fantastic canyon and track day tire. i use them on my Gen 4 zx10r. they have a very controllable slide when yu want to and the front is amazing in stopping. ive riden the q3s and as good as they are i find a lot more tire slip and the front end feel isnt quite there for me. 003 are great performers Jan 29, 2014

Kristin R: Stick to the q3's. bt003 are good but not better still a solid tire Jan 29, 2014

Yutinig C: 10000 miles should not be possible. my last set of 003rs last me around 3000km( which is around 1900 miles) I'm riding a Aprilia dorsoduro factory in Taiwan. Jan 17, 2015
