Bridgestone Launches its Next-Generation Sports Motorcycle Tyre, the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23

Bridgestone Corporation (Bridgestone) today announced the launch of the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23, a new sports radial motorcycle tyre for street use that will be available from January 2024.

The Bridgestone BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23 is the latest product in Bridgestone’s BATTLAX range of premium motorcycle tyres, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2023. Delivering various performance improvements over its predecessor, the BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23 is a next-generation sports tyre that’s engineered to meet the requirements of sporty riding on asphalt, featuring increased levels of exceptional dry grip performance when riding on circuits or cornering on mountain roads.

The BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S23 employs a newly-designed compound in the edge portion of the tread to make better contact with the road when banking at sharp angles and maximise edge grip when cornering, allowing the rider to take their sports riding performance to the next level.

The updated pattern, incorporating the Pulse Groove Technology, contributes to an improved performance even in case of difficult road conditions and wet weather, granting riders enhanced grip, superior handling and, ultimately, confidence.

Bridgestone is committed to supporting the development of a safe and enjoyable motorcycling culture, offering peace of mind by advancing a niche global, premium strategy that utilizes products including its BATTLAX brand premium motorcycle tyres. Through these efforts, the company strives to achieve the corporate commitment of “Emotion: Committed to inspiring excitement and spreading joy to the world of mobility” and “Ease: Committed to bringing comfort and peace of mind to mobility life”, described in “Bridgestone E8 Commitment”.
