    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

    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!

    Best Ninja 250 Tire

    This is the best rubber you can put on a 250. They warm up fast in the Florida sun and supply a crazy amount of grip for the street and the track. Used for two track days at Jennings GP and maybe another 1500-2000 miles on the street. The life isn't the greatest with larger bikes but with the 250 it's just fine and for the price it doesn't even matter. The grip is much better than the BT-090 and tread life is about the same. Just point it where you want to go and it sticks like glue.

    08 ZX10 on Track

    This is a great tire. I have gone through two sets of these tires. They warm up fast and stick like glue. I was knee down in turn two without tire warmers on the first session. They could last a little longer. I had to replace them after three trackdays. I am an intermediate track rider so I put these tires to the test. I plan to order another set. I haven't used them in the wet so I gave the tire an average wet score.

    Great Tires, Better for the track than the street

    Simple as that, they are very soft rubber, warm up fast, stick well. Not so great for dispersing water, tires are already significantly worn after 1000 miles.

    Awesome track day tire... Gixxer 1000

    Awesome track day tire, excellent dry traction, do not require tire warmers. I will buy these tires again and again. Have never tried them in wet conditions. Last set I got 5/6 track days out of them. Very reasonable price at Superstore!!

    Great tire, not so great life....

    So I am relatively new to riding and have only had the stock tires to compare to. But that being said, I live in the canyons so ride them every day as well as highway, they have worked great for both conditions. The only issue that I have had with them is that I have only had them for about 4000 miles and am showing wear bars on the rear crown and my front tire tread pattern is pretty much nonexistent except for the crown of the tire.

    super grip but a short life

    After having these tires on my bike for about a month now, I have to get some more, but I will say it will be these amazing tires. Grip on turn-in is shocking if you have never ridden semi slicks before. Shocking, I mean shocking, amounts of grip when accelerating and under braking these are second to none. I have ridden full slicks on a track, these are on par if not better in some ways than those. I will be buying these tire from here on out not to mention the price is great for a set.

    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.

    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!

    BT003 front

    Excellent grip and turn in. Neutral. Smooth rolling. Won't last much longer than the rear... about 2200 miles or so. Great tire(s) for carving and rollin hard. Warm up fast. Don't buy if you're trying to attain anything like med-high mileage. It won't happen. But still great for feeling secure and planted in the tight fast stuff. ZX14 -two sets in two months. A bit too short lived for me. Great service from Superstore...excellent shipping times.
