great tire for the price
April 06, 2013(philadelphia, PA)
The tire rides great I have had it for about 300 miles so far. It seems to grip extremely well. I cant say anything about wet traction yet but for what I have driven on it is truly a good tire.

Very good ride, stable, and looks to be wearing well. FJR1300 handles well in deep corners with the S-20.

I found the right tire for my beastly BMW S1000RR.
After three years and six different models of hypersport tires, these are the only ones I've bought twice.
Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S-20 Front Tire

I was surprised by how solid this new front tire was. I still have a stock rear tire on the rear as it was replaced early due to a puncture. I will be putting the matching tire on the rear. After an afternoon breaking them in, I did a 450 mile day which saw lots of high speed sweepers, canyon ripping and slab riding. It performed very well. If it wears as a good as it grips, it will be a solid winner
Best tire ever ridden on

Bought these tires for my FZ6R early this summer. Wearing great so far, put over 1250 miles on them and still have almost new tread depths. I work for Bridgestone and am probably biased, but these are way better than the Dunlops and Michelins I've ridden previously. Great dry weather traction, very fast warm up, and pretty good wet traction. Never buying another tire again. It's Bridgestone or nothing!

I just got these on my bike after i got a nail. ive got about 100 miles on the rear and so far I like it. they are much stickier than my old bt016 before if I had a decent lean and I jumped it a little she went driftin on me but now I can hammer out of the corners and she still sticks fine. My only complaint is that when I go into a corner hard I can feel the bike trying to spin the back around but not from a loss of traction but just the tire design. Highly recommended.
Awesome tire, feel the difference.

This tire is excellent. Just replaced my front, getting a back soon. After I wore it in for about 50 miles I could really feel the difference from my stock tire. Traction cornering is great, has given me some new confidence which is really important. Can't wait to get a back one to match! I haven't been in the rain much with it, but so far so good. Don't know about tread life yet...but it's a front, so should be pretty good.
So far, so good.

These tires replaced a set of Metzeler Sportec M3 on SV650 and I noticed an immediate difference in handling. These seem to turn in far easier while gripping just as well. I've only done about 250 miles so far but I'm already feeling more confident with these tires and it feels like I'm getting better input from them, but that might be subjective because they are new and the Metzelers were quite worn. Haven't ridden in the rain so can't speak to wet traction.
2900 miles is it...

Wore out the rear in under 2900. Which is subpar for most of the sport tires I have run on my bike. Traction was decent, nothing to write home about. These are a decent tire, nothing special, nothing terrible. I'll continue to use the M3 and Q2, both of which offered as much traction and feedback and both last upwards of 4500 miles
