Latest Bridgestone Race Battlax Available in Spring
This coming spring Bridgestone intends to release its latest production motorcycle racing radial, the Battlax Racing R10. Featuring an all-new tread, structure and compound, the R10 is described by the tyre maker as a product that “offers enhanced user-friendliness and better lap times, benefiting production motorcycle racing worldwide as well as users who enjoy riding high-performance super sport bikes on circuits.” Bridgestone adds that the new tyre was developed with European market use in mind and the end product is one that “provides superb dry performance and handling performance.”
According to Bridgestone, the adoption of a new tread pattern and high-level tuning of the compound and structure has led to improved warm-up capabilities together with a high degree of freedom in cornering. “With its high usability, this product will enable experienced riders to upgrade their driving performance and allow beginners to improve lap times,” comments Bridgestone.
Bridgestone’s range of “Battlax” motorcycle tyres covers the full spectrum from touring to racing, and from small to large-sized motorcycles. “Battlax Racing R10” is intended to appeal to a broad range of users as a product offering enhanced user-friendliness and better lap times in production motorcycle racing scenes. European replacement market sales begin in the spring with one front-wheel size and two rear-wheel sizes. One medium compound is available for the front tyre, with a choice of either hard or medium compound available for each rear size.
