I've used the Battlewings several times in the past and they work well for me.

Great reviews and good price

I have been using these tires for years. They work better and last longer than the Trail Wings that came on my DL1000 from the factory.
Mike on May 18, 2019
They are the same as the ones that came on the bike when I bought it and they've lasted and work well in all types of conditions.

OEM Tire for my Super Tenere. The originals have lasted 16k miles of my weak wrist-ed riding and never let me down. Reviews of the cheaper tires suggest they will not wear as well. The similarly priced and more expensive tires may be better in some ways, but I do not want to spend the money to experiment at this time.

Seems Like a better tire for touring than the Trail Wing 152.
Matthew O on Jul 15, 2018
This is one of two oem tires that came on the super tenere mine came with the metzlers but these are better priced and equal in performance I’ve been using them since 2013 and have no complaints
Kris J on Jul 15, 2018
OEM tire for my bike. Handles good and last reasonably long.
S C on Jun 5, 2018
same brand as I currently have on the bike...your price is best online
Dr. John on May 5, 2018
It is a replacment for the same tire that I have had on bike for the last 30,000 miles and I am happy with them.
James H on Feb 17, 2017
The E model is recommended by Yamaha as OEM. Lasts longer and rides better than Avon

No Better 90/10 for an XTZ1200
Although far from dirt worthy, I've used these on several Super Teneres to great effect on varied roads and trails. Great on any road w/o snow, ice, or mud. Get 4-6k miles dependent upon riding style. Like magnets on pavement.

Great tires!
I've been using these OEM tires on my Super Tenere for 6 years now. I get fantastic mileage out of them and they grip really well even in downpours and cold weather.

Rear tire for V-Strom 650
Found this tire on Bike Bandit for a great price. Shipping was as they said it would be. Have only got about 500 miles on the tire but I do like it. Tread depth across of the face of the tire is equal and adds to stability on wet roads.

Great tire for DL1000
I have been using these tires for years. The Trail Wing is a little better in the dirt but I pretty much stay on the pavement anymore and the Battle Wing feels better and lasts longer.

Battlewing tire on a Super Tenere
After 85,000 S 10 miles, I keep coming back to the E series Battlewing. I’ve used many other tires, but for my use, which is mainly long distance touring with occasional dirt and Forest Service roads, it has been the best for traction, handling, wet weather riding and wear.

Great Tire
I replaced the stock Trail Wing 152 tire with the Battle Axe 502-E.
Huge difference. Better handling and great performance 5MPG more, higher speed with lower RPM's. Depending on mileage I will buy this tire again.
