Product Information

Bridgestone Battlax BT-003 Racing Street Front Tire

Flexing MotoGP inspired muscles, the Battlax BT-003 comes to the street with about as much racing influence you can get away with. Its “Ultraction Compound” is ideally suited for track days where hard acceleration and braking are the norm. And though certainly a hard core sport bike tire, Bridgestone has made sure comfort and confidence inspiring handling traits are worked in as well.
  • Street Sport Tire with Ultimate Grip Performance is derived from MotoGP technology
  • Designed for Sporty Riding enjoyment with confident grip on streets and dry-condition circuits
  • Specially street-turned tire developed from our latest racing tire BT-003 which has achieved many victories in production-class races (600cc-1000cc)
  • BT-003RS is the successor to BT-002RS and BT-090 and covers various engine sizes and models (from middle sport class to super sport class)
  • The 3LC (3 Layer Compound) provide regular wear and the optimized pattern design provides longer wear life than ex-models: BT-002RS/BT-090
  • S shaped grooves across center of tread improve contact feeling, braking grip (for Front Tire) and traction grip (for Rear Tire)
  • Reducing Negative Ratio in shoulder part of tread improves turning ability
  • Longer Shoulder grooves than BT-003 Racing enhance WET grip and shock absorption on public roads
  • Optimized angle and shape of grooves contribute to noise reduction and improved mileage
3LC + Ultraction Compound provides the necessary performance on street, with delightful handling and enhanced grip. The breaking and cornering capability on dry circuits has been improved dramatically.

  • Center Compound consists of high grip compound which balances mileage and grip
  • Shoulder Compound consists of "Ultraction Compound" which exerts stronger grip power in braking and cornering
  • New Tread Pattern based on BT-003 Racing is tuned for increased WET grip and shock absorption on streets
  • MS-BELT provides light handling, absorbs sudden input from bumps and enhances stability and good line-holding in corners

Bridgestone Battlax BT-003 Racing Street

Best tires I have ever used for track day by far!! And for the price, I feel like a thief!! Ran 2 track days @ Fontana and these tires are so confidence inspiring!! Heat up quick, no warmers needed, excellent grip, great turn in and tread life is damn good! Better feel/feedback than the Dunlops I ran before...can't say enough about it!! For track days or street/canyon riding...these are the only tires for me!! I have a 2006 GSX-R 600 and just works well, don't know if it's just the bike or combo or what!? Anyways, it's an awesome tire, I highly recommend!!!! Great job Bridgestone!!!!!

great tires

I've used these tires for about 1000 miles and they work very well for the ride and cornering. When these wear out I'll buy another set.

Great Track / Canyon tire

Excellent grip and very smooth compared to my old BT 21 's. I ordered Metzler K2's and when I checked the DOT date they were over 5 years old. BOOOOO ..... not a tire I would ever put on my bikes. Always check the tires before you install them because those two round things are the only contact you have with the pavement. Wet rating is only a guess!!!

Better Handling

I have been putting Battlax tires on my TL1000R for several years now. Switched from Dunlop because they would only last me 1 year for the rear and 2 years for the front. With Battlax I have already started my 3 year of riding with the same back tire with minimal wear. The front just got replaced so I'm excited about the way the bike handles. It's like a new bike!

Exceptional performance at an excellent price.

I am very impressed with the performance of these tires! I ride a KTM Super Duke and exclusively ride in the canyons on the weekends. I was immediately impressed with the level of gip they provide (I purchased them as a set) and how confidence inspiring they are. I am really a front tire person and the feedback the front gives is incredible. The turn in is really easy yet stable. Line correction is merely a whim. Just think where you want to go and the bike goes there. Wear is a bit faster than some, however I am more than willing to trade faster wear for this level of performance. The tire also warms very quickly and within a few turns of ones favorite mountain road it can be ridden at full speed. In my opinion, for this price, this tire is untouchable. It has to be, by far, the best deal in Hypersport tires. WILL BUY AGAIN.

Battlax BT-003 tires

I put the BT-003's on my KTM 530 EXC supermoto setup. The lightness of the KTM is by no means heavy enough for this tire. The tires are sticky, grippy, very stable and will probably get a lot of miles from them. If these tire were on a heavier bike they would wear faster. I'm very satisfied with my choice of tire for the supermoto setup on my KTM. My confidence level has risen considerably. Great tire, I might try them on my Ducati.

BattlAx BT-003 SWITCH FROM BT-015 "JUST DO IT"

I want to say this, I have run 3 sets of BT-015's and a 4th rear(OEM SPEC)since March 07 TO Sept 09 on my K7 GSXR 1000. If any of you are doubting the switch to BT003, DOUBT NO MORE JUST DO IT. The BT-003 does all the same JUST BETTTERREEERRRRR, Wet, Dry, Cornering, Straight, Acceleration Traction, Breaking etc.... The only exception is tread life. If I cut back to 10 Monster Khaos's from 14 a week I won’t notice the budget deficit. Period.

Flawless canyon performance

I bought these for a track day that didn't happen, so I've been using them to commute and play on the twisties (dry play time, some morning mist during the commute). Had great stick-ability from the get-go in all conditions. The edges are nice and soft and show wear quickly, but that's what I'd expect from a trackday tire. Will be buying another set soon - gladly!

Best buns I've ever had the honor of riding on

Mounted these on my 2006 GSX-R 1000 for Jennings GP. These tires had INSANE grip at high lean angle; slip was very linear and predictable, even fun under power. A midday storm enabled me to attest to its superb wet traction (on a clean racetrack at 100mph+). The front tire turns in easily, and provides great feedback at all times. The rear connects well; is almost slick on the shoulders, making it extremely capable in transitions and acceleration. Tread life is impressive.

Great Investment!

I recently replaced my worn out Dunlops with these tires. I've never been happier. I replaced both front and rear on my GS500 and it handles great with these tires. I put about 1,500 miles on them, tread life is really good so far. I am all about the twisty's and these things just grip. I only rated the wet traction so low because I have only encountered very little rain but they seemed to be just fine. Great investment for aggressive riding!

Bridgestone 003 RS tires

Excellent tires for the dry road! The tread life isn't the best, but they sure stick to the road! I'm on my second set on my GSXR 1000 and I liked them so much I mounted them on my Husky SM610. Great price and fast shipping! Rich

bridgestone battlax front street racing bt-003 tire

Excellent quality tire, can’t really give a wet traction rating so I gave it an average .I won’t ride in the rain period. The grip/cornering ability of the tire I would compare to being on rails it was sticky right from the beginning and in the last 150 miles has just dramatically improved the look of the tire, is very racy. Would recommend this product to anyone with a 600cc or less motorcycle.
