Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport Touring Front Tire
Check out the price !
It s like adding power steering to an old bike. The handling is great and the sure footing the tires give you a safe feeling.Tried lots of tires in the 500k miles and I like the Bridgestones a lot.

Great tire at a great price!
I have a set of these on my 2012 Ninja 650 and they are absolutely amazing. I use my bike primarily to commute, but I do get up in the mountains on the weekends. I'm not a very aggressive rider, but on the twisty mountain roads, these tires feel like they grip the road better than my bike's original factory tires. There are lots of tire choices out there so it can be really confusing. I chose the BT-023's based on forum reviews. These tires are worth every penny you pay for them and then some.

Very happy with my decision to get these BT-023's. I don't have a mileage report yet but so far these feel great and my bike handles so much better already.

I rode a 1000 mile trip and you can barely tell that they even started to wear. Performed good on both wet and dry conditions. Rode on gravel, went into the mud puddles, and they performed like they should. Diffidently would consider buying again as long as they perform like they should for the rest of the miles to come.

Great for street riding on a VStrom
Coming from a dirt bike background, the 650 VStrom is the first "street" bike I've ever owned, so I don't have much to compare to. I just replaced the stock dual sport tires with a set of these Battlax's though, and the performance difference is amazing. Much smoother ride, and much better grip. Turn-in on corners is much crisper, and braking is a lot more stable. Very pleased.

I have put about 1000 miles on them so life span is not really something I can comment on at this point. I have done every type of riding except dirt riding on them and they feel great. Very smooth and quiet. They also have a great feel in the corners.

Sticky tires and last a while.
My last one lasted maybe 13,000 miles. Ride it a little hard, mainly for commuting and weekend fun. Best of both worlds . Sticks and lasts a while.

Can't beat it for the price
I put these on at the beginning of the season and have about 2k miles on them and they are wearing great. I also did about 1K miles in the rain and had no problems cruising at 80 while my dad had trouble with his D210s doing 65. The warm up is way better than my old OEM spec BT 016s and they have similar limits.
