I have had other versions of this tire and was happy. Also, it seems like they keep improving it. I did compare to other similar tires and this seems to be the best value of all of them. Other good reviews helped.

I've been riding on the battlax BT 016. Great tire<br />I've been reading good reviews on the S22. Will give it go. Sure I won't be disappointed

Joe R on Feb 8, 2020
I read up on what’s recommended for my bike, and these were at the top of the list. Also went for the larger 55 tire, which everyone says handles way better than the OE 50.
Vincent F on Jan 11, 2020
Quick warm-up time, sticky for all situations and long lasting for a sport tire
Andrew F on Oct 15, 2019
The Bridgestone Battlax has long had an outstanding reputation on the circuit. I've seen many title winners over the years win riding the Battlax. If it's good enough for circuit race winners, it's good enough for my brand of street riding.
Shannon S on Aug 26, 2019
I've read really good reviews about this tire. I did have a Bridgestone Battlax 023 on my bike. Looking to try something NEW!!!
Colonel on Aug 16, 2019
I rode through several sets of S21's on my CBR1000RR and liked them very much. <br />I've now ridden through one set of S22's and I like them even better.<br />At 34/34 psi, they are really good for fast canyon-riding. Neutral, stable, excellent grip.<br />I pushed them pretty hard and they just always did their job- tight hairpins, fast sweepers, trail-braking, mid-turn edge grip, camber changes. They handle it all really well.<br />And performance stayed consistent throughout the life-cycle. <br />Highly recommended.

I've been riding on bridgstones for a while now and have been very happy with them. My current tires are bt01 front and bt016 rear. They're great, but, wear too quickly.
Mrchrs on May 5, 2019
I prefer Bridgestone for all my motorcycles
nigel f on May 2, 2019
i previously had the S21 on my BMW S1000 which are great tires and these are supposed to be better, time will tell but the if they are better than the S21's I will be very happy

Love these tires on my bike. Good wear and smooth ride. Bike bandits has the best prices of all the shops I checked out so from now on I won't look anywhere but their website.

S21s are great. this is supposed to be even better.
Larry S on Apr 16, 2019
Because of the reviews on the tire and the reputation of the S21 by Bridgestone.

What is the difference between a same size tire where one states OE spec and the other doesn't?
Mark A on May 24, 2019

Great traction.
The S 22s appear to have really good cornering traction. The only problem I have experienced is that they seem to be harsh on the road. Very stiff. I'm going to try lowering tire pressure and softening up my compression dampening on the B King too.

Confidence booster
I have only put 200 miles on the tire as of now, gave it 50 miles to warm it up and hit 157mph shortly after with all confidence the tire was solid and would hold the road. The tire makes me feel very confident already. I've laid it over pretty low and have lost no confidence in the tire. Will revisit review for longevity but so far very impressed.

Outstanding!
These tires are great! They're perfect for the conditions of the state I live in. They're nice and sticky. I feel way more confident in my lean and cornering than my stock tire.
