Fastest wearing tire to date
I have had two sets of BT021 on two Triumphs, and ST 1050 and a GT. They handle well in both wet and dry and give great feel when new. Steering is light and the bike is nimble

However, lifespan is very short around 6000 miles. When the front gets to about 50% worn the steering becomes very heavy and the bike wants to turn in harder than you do and they follow every bit of unevenness in the road. A set of Pilot Powers on the ST out lasted the 021s by almost 4000 miles.

Mediocre at best
These were factory supplied on my 2015 Yamaha FZ6R, and were a disappointment. Vague directional control, very uneven wear on the front make them a loser. On a previous FZ6R the Dunlop Roadsmart II tires were quite good, and I replaced several sets with good results. Because of a $50 Bridgestone rebate on the S-21 tires, I chose them this time and they are amazing. Don't wast your money on these BT021.

OEM Performance
This is my second BT021. Due to a complete lack of tire care, my first BT021 wore extremely unevenly and I'm sure prematurely. After replacing the tire the bike is revitalized. This tire offers very good dry grip for an OEM tire. Best suited for drier regions grip is good all the way to the edge, giving confidence in corners. Wet grip is ok, if you're looking for more substantial wet weather control spend a couple more bucks on a tire designed for greater wet weather grip, again as OEM wet weather grip is tolerable. Design is ok, features are minimal. First tire had 5500 miles before needing replacement, I'll be sure to properly care for this tire for comparison purposes later on.

They are ok.
I would never buy these tires. They came stock on my 2011 FZ8. 6 years later they have about 9,400 miles now and are about to show belt. The first owner only put 2,800 on them in 5 years. I rode 6,600 in a year and wore them out. They are pretty grippy in the turns, but I've drifted once or twice. This is surprising considering I'm only on an FZ8. Wouldn't suggest for any super sport bikes. I never rode in any heavy rainstorm, but they were ok in the wet.
