Had these on my R1200GS and like the handling and wear. Stock tires are Anakee 3 and don't seem to wear as well so I'm going back to the Battlewings.

Great tire, I've had several. Not great for off-road applications, but currently have 12,200 on my latest. Great off-road, limited off-road. Seems to work well on Vstrom 650. Just tossed a Conti TKC 70 front tire on another bike. POS.

I already have one on my 650 VStrom and it is still good at 12000 miles but ready to be replaced. It wears well and handles well.

Has been a good tire, this one is the 3rd. They last around 10,000 miles. The tire grips the road well and have confidence in speed rating

these tires have been my go to on my f650gs...they are durable and stand up to wear (I get about 12k miles with all commuting miles) and they perform great with confident traction in all conditions.

What's the differance between the BW501 and BW501-E Battle Wing tire by Bridgestone besides the price?
Patrick on Nov 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The BW 501 -E model is the exact OEM replacement tire for the Yamaha XT1200 (2012). Same tire essentially, they share the exact same specifications. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 888-339-3888. We are more than happy to help.

Great tire
These are great tires. Used on both 2015 Triumph XCX and 2012 Suzuki Weestrom. Great on both. They have a road bias, for certain, but if you spend most of your time on the road, these are perfect. Long lived (12.2 k Miles on the front), good in rain and hard riding in Colorado mountains. I don't get off road that much on these, but good for dirt roads, forest trails and the like. I'd go to Moto Z or Hideneau (sic?) if I were riding to Alaska. Feels good (softer sidewall) on the bike, quiet, smooth ride. Almost perfect. You can find them on sale sometimes for much less than list. Highly recommended.
