Bridgestone Battlax BT016 Pro Hypersport Motorcycle Tire. Ultra-high-performance radials designed to maximize the performance of all sport bikes on the road today. The BT016 utilizes a new multi-compound formulated with technology from Bridgestone’s MotoGP tire development. It provides outstanding grip in all conditions.

The front tire uses a dual-compound to provide grip in all riding modes and the parallel S-shaped grooves provide optimal cornering force.

The rear tire uses a new triple-compound to provide stronger traction and the L-shaped grooves enhance shock absorption.

3D-CTDM (Comprehensive Tire Design Method) is an advanced tire design technology that enables dynamic, three-dimensional simulations of tire performance at all lean angles. Z-rated.

Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT016-Pro Hypersport Motorcycle Tire:

016 Pro Tires are predictable and I ride my Hayabusa the way it was meant to be. It certainly is true that they wear fast, but you won't hear a complaint from me. This is my third set.

    Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT016-Pro Hypersport Motorcycle Tire:

    Very good predictable tire. I ride moderate to aggressive throguh corners and I don't have to think about grip when the BT016's are under me. Weat weather grip is acceptable. I find that I get 4k-5k miles before needing to replace the rear and about 12k for the front. I ride a 2005 CBR600RR

    GREAT TIRE!!!! JUST BUY IT!!!

    By The Louisiana Project

    from San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Good Cornering
    • Good Enough For Track
    • Good Ride

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Begin To Intermed Track
      • Street Riding

      Comments about Bridgestone Battlax BT016-Pro Hypersport Motorcycle Tire:

      Put these on my 04 R6 for track day usage. So far sticking great. Took 10 seconds off my lap times and there are no cornering problems. 3 of the tracks corners are cambered, 1 off camber, and they stuck for me every time. they only slipped as I started to exit corners with more throttle, but it was not enough slippage to discourage my liking for this tire. IF YOU ARE A BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE TRACK DAY RIDER THESE TIRES WILL LAST YOU A WHILE AND NO HIT THE POCKETS TO HARD. hope this helps.. 95+ daytime temp, use 28-29 tire pressure, just my advice, worked great for me.

          Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the tires will not fit your bike. You will need to search for narrower tires. The Bridgestone BT45 is the model tire the 250R is equipped with. Below is a link to the tire:

          A:

          Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the BT016R is not available in the sizes needed for the GL1800. The Bridgestone BT-016R is a radial tire and doesn't have the load index required for the Honda GL1800. You may need to search for a bias ply or reinforced tire that meets that criteria. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at Sales@bikebandit.com, Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.
