Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 Pro Rear Tires
I put these in my CB1000R and took them to the Ozarks expecting 80-90 degree weather in May. We got 45-75 wet weather. The tires held the lines great I was very happy with the way they performed in both dry and wet weather. I don't expect as much mileage out of them as a sport touring tire but I can accept that.

Great tire for high grip levels and daily road use
Ive got a 03 sv1000 with bt016 pro front and rear. With the weight of this bike (450 ish) and the high torque it delivers these tires handle it with no problem. Warm up times are great, almost non existent. Ive put 5,500 miles on them and im about due for rear replacement, front still is doing well. They have great turn in bite and great mid corner control. Really nice level of feedback, quite confidence inspiring. Ill be getting another set in the near future.

Great tire for the street and price.
Love the street grip with this tire. The dual compound helps in the curves.

Good feel, long life
My new Zx-10R came fitted with these tires and I wasn't expecting much. But after A couple thousand miles of getting used to the bike, I came to see that these are great tires. They allow my to lean the bike over easily and give my Kawi a super fickable feel. They stick well even in cool weather and are rock solid on the highway at high speeds. Best of all I have 6000 miles on them and I just started looking to replace them with another set.

Revzilla delivers again! It's a great tire. I had it professionally installed and I can tell it's got great grip on the roads in San Diego.

Rain storm owned / Overall quality
Car was in the shop, stressed with life, out of sick/vacation days and a torrential rain storm one fall morning. No choice but to fire up my recently purchased used bike with around 35-40% tread life left on these BT-016's. I didn't care about dying this morning and I rode hard and fast in the nastiest hardest rain in a while around these parts. On my 40 minute commute I didn't lose traction once at speeds up to 80-85 hitting water patches and taking a long curving "C" off ramp at an unsafe speed. I got to the office drenched from head to toe (did pack a change of clothes) and thought to myself that was one of the stupidest things I've ever done. These tires probably saved my life. Plus the good Lord.

long time user of the battlax bt016
I have been using these tire for about 3 years now and I do so pretty quick touring we have some great back roads in Australia that test the rider and his tyres to the max with tight cornering and fast straights I am on my third set of bridgestone battlax bt 016 and I am extatic with their performance ,wear life ,and price I do a lot of miles and the grip these tires give in all conditions is amazing I ride a GSF 1250S Suzuki Bandit which is a relatively heavy bike but it handles just like a sports bike with these tyres fitted I am getting around 12000 km with tyre life left when I replace them the price is amazing I purchase front and rear tyres together on the net for under $300 AU and my local bike shop fits and balances them for around $15 each which represents amazing value here in Australia I recommend these tyres to any one who likes to go fast corner hard and wants to feel safe
