bridgestone bt 023 great tire. put the bt 23 on my 2013 hayabusa, tracks very well , confidence inspireing neutral handeling, a little soft bounce on the bumps, this tire is a great touring tire, and really improves around town handeling. not as good above 170 mph slight movement in the bars starts here.

Does the Job--well I Put around 400 miles on it so far. Sticky enough to hit he corners pretty hard on warm days. Rode in the rain for half of those miles and she handled well. Good for those die hard comuters/adventures who ride regardless of the weather. February 6, 2014
Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport Touring Front Tire I commute to work on a 2006 CBR 1000RR with over 60,000 miles on the bike at this time rain or shine living in southern California the rain not as much as the shine. I bought these tires after reading the other reviews and trying to save some money. I have used Michelin Pilot Road, Pilot Road 2 and the Pilot Road 3. I loved the Michelin tires until the Pilot Road 3 the tires have the best wet grip of any other tire I've used. The Pilot Road 3 especially the front treed wore uneven and cupped even when keeping the tire at the recommended pressure. The Bridgestone Battlax BT-023 Sport Touring Front Tire after 4,000 miles seems to be a good choice for the money. January 2, 2014
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. December 5, 2013
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.

Great Choice 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. October 24, 2013
My Review 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. October 16, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
matthew b: The fine reviews from the guys at revzilla. And very happy I did. Great tire. Neutral handling, point and drive, stability. great sport touring feel. Aug 5, 2014
Honesty C: After going through a different set of Battlax Tires, I wanted to accommodate my next choice for a rear tire that has the same great quality and an even longer life. This thing should hold up just as well as the rear, getting a great value for the price. Ideal for those who want to get a lot of miles out of tires at a reasonable price. Jan 19, 2014
Wayne B: Thought I'd try them out, 10K and still plenty of life. Nov 25, 2013
tim w: BT-021 was on my C14 now. This was the updated version of that tire. Nov 3, 2013
Leo Hadley J: Replacement... Why fix what aint broke. Excellent tires! Nov 2, 2013
Justin F: Looking for extended tire/tread life Aug 28, 2013
Thien C: Replacing OEM BT020, which I got 17000+ miles
I'm hoping to get same or better mileage from these tires, it should provide better traction than OEM

Jose R asked: Why would they go with a 3LC tire in the rear and a single in the front? vs when other tires are both front 3LC and back 3LC? Apr 8, 2014

Calvin W: What type of bike? If a cruiser, then more weight is on the rear so the 3LC feature could help with wear since it is prone to wear out before the front. Sport bikes tend to have weight distributed fairly equal front and rear so matched tires are more important for performance. It is my understanding that the 3LC (for 3 layer compound) features a harder better wearing rubber in the center where most wear occurs while having softer rubber (some refer to it as sticky) compounds away from the center for better traction in turns. Typically the rear wears before the front so maybe having a better wearing rubber on the rear will have both tires wear out about the same time. I am no tire expert but I am basing this on my own observations in my riding community. Apr 9, 2014

A shopper asked: Do both front and rear of the BT-023 have dual compound? Apr 29, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: For both the Dunlop BT-023 and the BT-023-GT, only the rear tire is a dual compound, or what Dunlop considers "3LC Technology". All BT-023 and BT023-GT front tires are a single compound. May 9, 2013
