Love this tire. I race a ninja 250 on these.

It is a good choice for hard riding on the mountain roads, but the life on this tire is short. 2k miles on it on average.

awesome tires
A S on Nov 9, 2014
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.

the bridgestone tyre, is a very good tyre
Roger F on Jul 15, 2014
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.

Sticky, holds in the tight turns.
Stephen H on Aug 10, 2013
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

Eli T on May 10, 2016
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
A shopper on Feb 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: no experience with the pd rosso, but the bt 003s are awesome.. I race with them on my ex500 and have used on the street.. they stick great.. used in the rain once and seemed okay, but wouldn't go hard. definitely recommend.
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)
Andrew S on Jan 26, 2014
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.
How long will a set of Bridgestone Battlax BT-003 last? I am planning on getting a front and rear but I am aiming for tire life around the 10,000 mile mark.
A shopper on Nov 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
