Bridgestone Battlax BT-45V

Replaced both front and rear with the BT-45V. Fast shipping and great price for an excellent tire. Bike handles better and sticks to the road well. Totally pleased with my purchase.

Great tires

I choose this tire over the Dunlop GT501 and so far I am very pleased. I have put about 1000 miles on it since I bought the tire about a month ago and I can say it is a lot better then the GT501 that I had before. It corners well and when I drove it home in heavy rain the other day and it has excellent traction, even with the soaked roads.

Bridgestone - Battlax BT-45V Sport Touring Front Tire

I have always been prone to choosing the Bridgestone brand of motorcycle tire for my Honda CX 500, CX 650 Euro Sport, GL 500 Silverwing, GL 650 Silverwing, and BMW R65 LS. This is because they were recommended to me by my rider friends and racers. One of the best aspects of these tires is the low, low, low pricing I was able to get from Motorcycle Superstore.

Great!

First of all, this tire arrived *ridiculously* fast. I have no idea how it got here so fast. But anyways, yea, the tire rocks. My only comparison is to the dry-rotted Chinese tire that was on my bike before and looked like it was made in 1985, but the Battlax has a nice wide shoulder, loves to be leaned, grips great under breaking, and most importantly (for me) doesn't look like it belongs on a GSXFZRBusa. No offense, but you know what I mean...

Much better!

Replaced both tires with BT-45V and couldn't be happier. Went from Bridgestone Spitfires to these for my 81 Honda CB900F and noticed the improvement right away. I have more confidence turning, and the ride is really smooth and stable. Great service and fast shipping from Motorcycle Superstore. I won't order my tires from anywhere else.

Best of both worlds

Great tire for my 81"GS1000g. She has eaten most tires alive at 700+lbs and my heavy English ride style. Tire holds under heavy knee down games of tag on are rough log and coal roads. Smooth power transfers between compounds. It's the A4 and the Pilot all in one! Ride safe, Ride smart, wear your leathers, Love the day.

BT-45V

I Installed this on my 2000 VMax, paired with a Shinko 150/90V-15 Rear Tire. I'm very happy with it's straight line and Cornering Performance so far. No Front nd wobble and very stable in twisties/sweepers. I can't speak to Tread life yet because I've only had it on for about 1 Month so far. If it lasts a decent length of time I will definitely purchase another when it's needed.

Solid Tire

I mounted this tire on the front of my 85 V65 Honda Sabre. I hand mounted and balanced the tire. It mounts well: secure but not too stiff to mount by hand. It balanced without much weight. It rides smooth. The round profile offers predictable handling at any lean, when compared to square or sharp tire profiles that are either reluctant to lean in or want to immediately fall into a steep lean angle. There is adequate grip for my riding habits, providing plenty of confidence.

'09 Ninja 250r

For my daughter's bike. She had complained about the stock IRC's feeling "greasy" and small. A newbe, (3yrs) she claims greater stability and positive feedback. Comparing them to the old, indications are that she is leaning further into turns. Ignore "Tread life" stars...no data yet. As usual, MSS delivers. My only complaint is that my, now former, local bike shop slapped me with $45 PER TIRE! to spoon them on...and I did the R & R. Next time, I'll definitely try the MSS installer...

Like riding on flypaper

First, the tire came redonkulously fast. Put this on the front of my '84 CB700--one of the few tires available in recommended size. Tire already has 1k miles on it, zero complaints, still look great. Very sticky. I've hit a lot of edge traps, gravel roads (construction), and some really twisty roads, and the tire did everything I asked of it. I'm putting one on the back when the time comes.

Tires for my fj1200

I purchased the Bridgestone Battlax BT-45V about a month ago from the Superstore, I am very happy with the price and the delivery. I installed the tire recently, fit and finish is perfect. Since I did not put on enough mileage on the tire I can not make a statement on its durability but I am sure I'll get satisfactory mileage.

BRIDGESTONE BT45 Battlax

This is my second set of BT 45's and I love them. The grip better and wear better than the Metzlers I used on my BMW k100rs in the past. I've done two long sport touring trips, both including several passes on the Tail of the Dragon, and I had no trouble keeping up with many of the modern sport bikes. These tires inspire confidence, and even grip well in the wet. I got about 6000 miles out of the rear, and 8500 out of the front. They seem to wear better at 38 psi front and rear (on my 550lb bike). That’s more than the owner’s manual says to run in the front, but at lower pressure, the sides wore more than the center. I would definitely recommend these for sport touring.
