Brigestone by-016

I have put about a thousand miles on the new tire and I'm very satisfied with them no problems in the rain and they grip really well even cold, they also absorb a lot of shock. I have a 07 r6 and its a stiff ride but the tire helps on bumps

BT-016

Hey all, I picked up a new 160/60x17 BT-016 for the rear of my 03 SV650 Suzuki and have only put a couple of hundred miles on it so far. I have been running Pilot Powers for a few years and loved them until I started to melt them on hard rides with my buddies. So I went with Power Races, med rear and PRC soft front. And those have worked excellent for me. I ran over something and killed my good rear race and thought that I would give the rear 016 a try. First off I noticed that the bike handles very similar to the way it did with races front and rear (very stable). On a ride with my bros who were running full race tires I had no problems at all with the rear sliding. It stuck great and gave good feedback. It's too soon to tell how it will wear, but it only looked slightly used after the 200 miles. I have yet to try it in the rain, but will soon. :-( I am an Ex AFM class champ and push a little harder than most street riders. I rate this tire excellent and would recommend it to all levels of street/track riders. I will buy another rear as needed. And a front as soon as I wear my PRC out. Bridgestone has an excellent product with their new BT-016's

Battlax BT-106 REAR

This tire came stock on my 08 GSXR, the tire is excellent for me everywhere, rain, I recently rode in 35 degree weather tire warmed up and rode well. Stability as rated cornering very nice, As far as tread goes I got about 5k out of the rear, more to go on the front but this is about the rear.

Freakin Awesome Tire!!!!!!

I got a set of bt-016s installed on my 2006 GSXR600 and let me tell you these tires are the real deal for the price. They stick great, feels very stable and planted in the corners. I had NO problem getting my knee down on the streets with these bad boys. I’ve never gone as fast through the twisties until I got a set of these tires. The confidence they give me is amazing, I just wanna push harder and harder and go faster and faster!

The Real Deal

This tires rock, they stick very nice to the twisties, they are very stable, excellent traction on dry and wet conditions, and the best part of all they last forever, I have 6,500 miles on my GSXR 750 and It could easily go 200 + more. Excellent tires .

Great Tire, A Must Buy

I previously used Pilot Powers but the price on those have went up so much and found some reviews on these tires and decided to give them a try. They feel great. I have more confidence with these tires than any other tire. They have definitely proved to me they are a great tire and for the price you can't beat them. They also seem to get good traction in the rain.

battleaxe bt 016

Put a set on 700mls ago and I love them....Had Rennsports and Michelin powers before, both great but were gone in around 2000mls. The stability, braking and cornering of these compare very well against the softer tire (take a little more to warm, but no biggie). As for tread life, I’ve put on 700mls (all twisties) and they barely looked scrubbed in (way better than the softs), so tread life looks good (fingers crossed). Wet traction is not an issue for me here in SoCal, so have rated 5 because they excelled in the other four. Well worth a try for the money, you get a great performing tire for a very reasonable price. I know will buy these again.

2006 GSXR 1000

So far have had great success! They NEED to warm up to be at peak performance. I know that they all do but these in particular are a too loose when they are cold. That is absolutely the worse thing I can say about these tires, other than that they are GREAT! I have not ridden them in the rain yet so I can't rate them on that. Great overall value. Will buy them again

The new BT-016 is a great tire for the price, you can't beat it. The grip is great on the street. I will never get any other tire. The wear so far is good and I have been on it lately and its only wearing on the very ends that are very soft compound. Great tire so far.

Let me tell you!

Put these on my 01 GSXR 1000 1 day before I left for a 4,000 mile road trip from FL to IL and spent a week in the smokey mountain DEALS GAP area, maybe 25% worn, though average speed was well in the 100+ range so not bad at all, cornering with over 100 lbs of luggage was awesome, and road in 700-800 miles of rain on the way home not one scare so will buy these again, and cannot wait to go back to deals gap area.

Lovin it!!

I have read about going from a 190/50 to a 190/55 tire. Most said they love it. I must say I absolutely love this tire too!! I feel like I am sitting little higher than before but I also can lean further when taking corners. The traction is awesome once they get warmed up. It was a toss-up between this tire or the Pilot Power 2CT. No one seemed to have a good answer for which is better. Seems to be a mere matter of preference. For the price, this tire is a better great choice. Only have 100 miles on them now so we will have to wait and see about the tread life...I gave it a 5 anyways.

NICE

I have them on my bike I have gotten over 8000 miles on both, the front is showing a lot of wear. The back still has more but I’m going to change both. Great tire. I have done a lot of canyons and a lot of freeway riding. I’m getting another pair in a day. Best tire ever

Good tires

I think they are good tires for the street. %80 of riders will never see the full potential of their bikes any way. I think as long as you have a good name brand tire you should be good. These tires are good but I will never see the full potential of them on the street. Will buy again, I don't ride in the rain so wet traction is not important. I have the 109/55 on my 2004 CBR 1000rr so cornering is good. Tread life depends on the rider and road conditions. Everybody has their own experience, one different from the other

BT-016 Tires

I purchased these tires a couple of days before spending 4 days riding the tail of the dragon and all the surrounding roads/areas. I was replacing the stock tires off of my 08 R6 and it was like night and day. I roadraced for years from the mid 80's until the mid 90's and held expert license in both WERA/AMA and it is amazing how good these new breed of tires have progressed. I really cannot comment on the life because although we did put close to 1200 miles in 4 days, it was just 4 days but they seem to be wearing very well. I will buy these again.
