Awesome (better then all the 016's)

Did my first track day with it still have alot of tread left, no scary moments. cant say i railed it that much in the straights but i went fast enough to keep up with the people who were by catching up in the turns. Can power wheelie coming out of turns on the street so that's awesome overall an awesome ride, (ducati 900ss)

New Favorite

Love these tires. Can't believe it but it makes my CBR 1000RR handle even better. I've got 2700 miles on them so far & lots of tread left. Should get at least 4k out of them. I like them enough I've bought & stored a second set while on sale. I'm a fairly aggresive rider, don't stunt or drag race but do occasional track days. Highly recommend this tire. Replaces Q2s as my favorite tire.

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!

Very happy - BMW

Mounted them front and rear on a K1200rs (630 lbs). Took it on a 4800+ mile ride through the Sierra and Rocky Mountains (Had to cross the desert twice). Very little wear. Never had any steady rain but would come up on melting snow water every so often in a turn and never even twitched. They were great on those loose gravel patches in the center of the lane, too. Can't think of a reason to switch.

This tire is badass

Bike: 05 Kawi ZX6R . The stock tires were Bridgestone BT014 which I was replacing with the same until I found a few reviews for the s20. I wish I had known there could be such a difference. The s20 tires are so much better it's like a new bike. Entry is predictable and linear. I can carry lots more speed through corners than the 014 and on exit I can use more throttle earlier. All around awesome.

S-20

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

great tire for the price

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.

Great Tire

I have put about 300 miles on them so far so I cannot speak of the tread life. However the tire feels excellent. It is very stable and predictable when rolling into a corner. I had bt015 on my 08 cbr1000rr and these feel much better. They ride smoother overall, and I feel much more confident when riding.

New Favorite Tire

Wow, the S20's are so nice handling. I have had them on my Ducati Monster for about 500 miles so far. So much confidence leaned over to the edge and great stabitlity. I liked the BT-016 handling as well, but these feel much better. I tried Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's on this bike before these, but they were way too twitchy handling. The S20's are rock stable at any lean angle. Now...I hope they last more than the 2500 miles I got out of the BT-016's.

I'm Done Looking

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.

'09 ZX-14, Front S20. I'm impressed!!

This tire REALLY holds a line. This tire comes up to temp, and is ready to be pushed, very quickly!! I don't ride in wet conditions, so I am not able to testify on its wet traction. I highly recommend it for you guys who want to hit the twisties AND, commute back and forth. As soon as my BT-016 REAR is ready to be tossed out, I'm buying the S20 for the back!! If you like the BT-016, you will be amazed and "in love with" the S20!!
