    Good replacement for BT016

    I ride a grey market CBR400RR. OEM tire not available in correct size for my little CBR. I live in NE Georgia where the only straight road is my driveway. I am 65, so not too much knee dragging on public roads. The S20 is at least as stable as the BT016. Can't say about mileage as the new tires have less than 200 kilometers on them.

    Not Bad

    Slapped this tire on my 08 CBR 1000 RR and not too bad. Only complaint is the center of the tire seems to wear faster than the BT-016's and 015's. (maybe doing too many burnouts?) Otherwise great tire!

    Great tires

    I ride a 2006 CBR1000RR. These tires are good performers. Good grip, cornering, braking. Good stability on one wheel I am on my fourth set of these tires. I average around 3K-4k miles from the rear but also use them on the Freeway so that is to be expected. Does take a couple of minutes to warm up when it is below 60 degrees outside. I am on my fourth set (always change in sets) and will buy again.

    Bridgestone S20

    Awesome tire, on my 3rd set. Makes my CBR 1000 even better. Track or street, the best tire.

    Great tires

    Put a set on my 2004 ZX10r, and went with the 190/55 from 190/50 after reading some good reviews on changing sizes. Hard to say for sure but I think they are the best tires I have had. Been using Battleax 012 014 last set was 016 Pro and pilot powers. -Rick

    So far sweet. Only have 300 miles on them but they have hugged and been very grippy.

    Updated Review

    I still love these, the S20 tires for their handling. After ordering my fourth set, I looked again at my mileage. The rear tire on this last set was toast at 1800 miles. I normally get between 2500-3000 miles on a set of tires, for the aggressive canyon riding I do. I think I will definitely try the Dunlop Q3's next. Hopefully they will have as good a feel and get better mileage.

    Best tire @ its price point!!

    At this price point NOTHING beats these tires!! I've danced with the Mich PP for 3 years before switching to the BT016s.. Major improvement. The S20s go beyond the BT016s & even the Pros.... EXCELLENT TIRE!!!

    Heck yea

    These tires came on my K12 Gsxr 1000 and I was pretty skeptical at first since most of the previous Battlax tires I have used were not bad, but they were not the best. I typically run Q2's and I am running these through before I swap them out. I have to be honest I am impressed. They handle and respond alot better than I thought they would.

    Great first time

    This was my first time going with Battlax, I love this tire. This tire definitely lives up to all the reviews, I am a street rider and the tire has performed pretty good taking me through the terrible streets of New Orleans and now the better streets of Houston, TX lol.

    S-20

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

    Excellent Tire! The life is a little short, but this is the price you pay for the grip, I think. One of the best tires I know. WalteRR

    Cannot beat tires derived from motogp..

    These are by far the best tyres I have used on my Honda cbr600 2008. I have put about 2000 miles on them and they still look like they found handle some more. I definitely accelerate hard, brake hard, and hit fast corners and even slow corners and have gotten my elbow about less than a foot to the ground when cornering. I literally ride my streets like a circuit.

    Awesome tread life!

    I have put almost 8000 miles on these tires living in HOT southern Arizona with biweekly mountain trips. They have amazing cornering and stability in both Dry and Wet. Just bought a second set for my 07 ZX-6.

    Best Street Tire I have ever used, Triumph Daytona 675

    In a nutshell this tire can do it all! Used for one day at Jason Pridmore Star School (on Track) loads of feedback and grip in 100 degree heat, over 2000 miles of commuting, and multiple trips to Arkansas for some spirited back road riding. Tires performed amazing in the damp wet roads this weekend in Arkansas. Managed 3400 miles on the rear before there was noticeable wear that started to effect handling/performance. For reference I typically get 2000-2400 miles out of a set of sport tires.
