Bridgestone Announces BT-023 Adventure Sport Bike Tyre Fitments
Bridgestone has released details of fresh bike tyre fitments in the Sport-touring segment, as the recently launched Battlax BT-023 receives approval on popular models. The BT-023 rear and BT-020 front mix has now been approved for bikes such as the BMW R1200GS and the Kawasaki KLV1000. This newly approved dual fitment allows bikers currently riding on BT-020s the option to replace rear tyres with the BT-023 when the rear BT-020 is phased out in June.
Since its launch in March, the BT-023 has received praise for its mileage, grip and performance in the wet, say Bridgestone representatives such as Gary Hartshorne, motorcycle sales and technical expert at Bridgestone UK: “Sport-touring is the fastest growing market segment and the Battlax BT-023 is leading innovation in the sector. We are delighted to have an approved fitment which allows riders of the more adventurous bikes to make the most of Bridgestone’s latest technology. The BT-020 front and BT-023 rear fitment will allow Adventure Sport bike riders to really maximise their on-road performance.”
