Great tire for the money. Getting harder to find tires for some of the older (mid-80's) Jap bikes and these were the correct size. Seem to work very well in all road conditions. I have them on a couple of my other bikes as well. Excellent tire, for a good price, great value!!
Worth the extra bucks

I'm not a racer yet so not much experience on different tires. Though after a few fishtails on hard short stops, bought these and have felt much safer. Another hard short brake that probably would have ended bad on previous, cheaper tires, these brought me to a quick stop comfortably and without losing traction. Don't feel hindered at all from riding in the rain. Can't rate tread life. Need NA option.

This set of Bridgestone Battlax BT-45's are the first after the stock Meltzer’s that came on my bike. So far I am very happy with them and like the feel and cornering ability. I have not had a chance yet to see how they do in the rain and after only a month can't say anything about tread life.

BT-45s for 2010 Ninja 250

Great all around tires. I Bought a set of BT-45s (110/70/17 & 130/70/17) to replace the worn IRCs that came with my Ninja 250. Huge improvement in stability, wet/dry grip. The BT45 130 is a little wider that the stock IRC 130. Only have a little over 1k on them so far so can't comment about thread life.
Great Tire, Great Service

Bought the Battlax to replace the old tires on my Yamaha '74 RD200 and the ride has been greatly improved. Very smooth and very stable.

Excellent value - great tire!
Excellent compromise between traction and treadwear.

I ride a 2007 Kawi EX500 and these tires replaced the stock rubber. The difference is day-to-night. I don't ride nearly as aggressively as I used to, so the traction and cornering aren't as good as say, a Metzler sport compound, but you'll get more treadwear than 5000 miles, too. Note that for aggressive sport touring, these tires are excellent. This review also includes BT-45 Rear tires in the stock sizes, as well. 110/70-17 and 130/70-17.
