The Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S23 is the latest addition to Bridgestone’s premium Battlax tire range, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. For those wondering what it has more than its predecessor, the famous Battlax S22, we have the answer. This brand new, latest generation hypersport tire has been designed to offer ever higher performance, whether on the asphalt of a circuit or winding mountain roads.
The release of the Bridgestone Battlax S23 is particularly anticipated. It succeeds Bridgestone’s popular S22, which was already praised for its performance and precise feedback on the road. With the S23, Bridgestone pushes the limits of performance even further while maintaining appreciable versatility. Today’s motorcycles are more powerful than ever, and this tire seems ready for the challenge.
Grip, even on the corner
The secret of this S23 lies in its tread. The shoulder areas are equipped with a latest generation compound, improved thanks to an optimized resin. How does this concern you? Well, this means that when negotiating tight curves, the tire provides optimal contact with the road, giving you impressive grip and allowing you to attack the corners with confidence. You will no longer have to worry about losing grip when you are on the corner.
Performance, even in the wet
The Battlax Hypersport S23 doesn’t just offer high-level performance in the dry. Thanks to a redesigned profile and Bridgestone’s exclusive Pulse Groove technology, this tire excels even on wet roads. Pulse Groove technology allows for more efficient water evacuation, ensuring increased grip on wet surfaces. You will be able to face these unexpected showers with complete confidence.
Soon on your motorcycle
The marketing date is scheduled for January 2024. It will be offered in six sizes, including one for the front wheel and five for the rear wheel, enough to equip a wide range of sports motorcycles.
