The Battlax family of motorcycle tyres has been extended to the adventure touring segment. First seen at the Intermot fair in Germany at the start of the month, the new Battlax Adventure A40 expands the all-weather potential of trail radials for the many riders who use their adventure machines primarily for on-road touring. Bridgestone says the starting point for the new product’s development was its Battle Wing tyre, and the goal its engineers held was to significantly improve the Battle Wing’s dry and wet handling without sacrificing its high-level stability and durability.
