Bridgestone announced that the Battlax Adventure A41 will come as original equipment on the iconic BMW R1200GS and BMW1200GS Adventure motorcycles.
“The A41 has been designed for all riding conditions,” explains Nico Thuy, Head of Motorcycle Europe, Bridgestone EMEA. “It’s a tire to make your travel, whatever the weather conditions, and enjoy an undefinable experience’.
This all-round performance has been made possible by elements of the design. Engineers used Bridgestone’s Mono Spiral Belt technology to reduce the weight of the tires, maximize shock absorption and improve the riding comfort. The new pattern design featuring large blocks in the centre of the rear tire and a low SEA/LAND ratio at the centre of the front tire, ensuring stability even at high speed in fully laden conditions. As well as the superior stability, the new pattern also delivers more inspiring traction on straights and through corners without sacrificing anything on wear life.
Wanting to boost riding confidence in wet conditions, Bridgestone maximised water drainage by increasing the SEA/LAND ratio at the shoulders of the tyre.
‘We are proud to have been chosen to provide tires for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure,’ explains Nico Thuy. ‘Being involved in this project – with R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure, among the world’s most famous motorcycles – is a unique honour for us. It recognises the quality of our products, our leadership in tire development technologies and the strength of a long-term alliance with BMW Motorrad that dates back to 1995. We are looking forward to supporting BMW Motorrad on their next exciting challenges.’
The Battlax Adventure A41 range is also available for the replacement market. Produced in 16 sizes, the tire is sure to meet the needs of anyone who is looking for adventure.
