Great sport touring tire
I have used 2 sets of these tires. The first set lasted about 16k mi and the second set lasted 14k mi. I was very impressed by the longevity, but was just as impressed by the handling and grip in the corners. Many trips through the southern California hills on these tires proved to me to be a great all around tire. These tires inspire confidence in all weather conditions, to include hurricane wind and rain in North Carolina, snow and ice and hot summer rides. Moved to these from Dunlop Qualifier 2s and Metzeler M7, these are my preferred tire for street riding.

All around great tire
These tires are great in the rain and in the sun, they inspire confidence when riding with traffic through town as well as doing some questionable speeds through the mountains on the weekends. They have been nothing but great, even in terrible WA weather.

tires
I have about 500 miles on these tires so far. It's not enough for me to be able to give an in depth review, but thus far these tires seem nice. The front tire on my motorcycle "passed" inspection when I bought it but it was clearly weather checked and had notable cupping and a flat spot. Once I got these on my bike it basically made me feel like I was riding a new motorcycle. Once they warm up they really start to bite the road. It makes me wonder what actually sport tires are like considering how well these seem to grip. No idea how long they will last yet, but they seem worth it if you are commute and do occasional spirited rides.

Great grip
Great tires for the money, very grippy and smooth riding. Have not been in any wet roads and have only a few miles on them so i hope they last.

Still relatively new
I bought these last season, and I can tell they are going to work as I had hoped. I'm not a sporty rider, so I don't know how the grip is, but they seem to be very composed when cornering. The rear is starting to square off a tiny bit because I live in a city with straight roads, so I expect that. Wet grip seems to be good. Again, I don't really push it to the limits. No cupping or uneven wear problems so far. No wonder they've made these for a long time!

Great Price Great Tire
I've spent 11 months and 11k mi on these Battlax bt023s. They still have 2-3k left on them...I have the front at 36-39psi and rear at 35psi. Very even tread wear on the rear...they look like ripples on a pond. Never got a flat spot or wavy tread strip.

Not as flickable as Rs10s, not as grippy as s21s, but great tread life and tire genes.
You can't beat the price...biggest company in moto tires...

I have been running BT s on my triumph for several years. They stick well and last longer than Michelin. I have always likes the steering characteristics of these tires and how they feel at higher lean angles.

Did Bridgestone improve this tire or just bring it back? It says new and I know they stopped making them when the T30 was introduced.

what do you recommend for a 2015 FZ-09?
Mark M on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These...They are great Street tires for a great street bike...get something like the s21 if your wrapping these on a sportbike.
Would thos fit a 2013 Suzuki boulevard M90?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not the front tire. The rear tire may work. I think your bike comes with 200/50ZR17 . BT-023 only goes to 190/50ZR17.
