Bridgestone has unveiled a new sports radial motorcycle tire for street use that will be part of its Battlax line of motorcycle tires. The Battlax HYPERSPORT S22 tires will be available in one front tire size and five rear tire sizes when released in the U.S. and Canada in January 2019 and in other regions in February 2019.
The Battlax HYPERSPORT S22 tire is the successor to the Battlax HYPERSPORT S21 tire, which is featured as original equipment on numerous sports motorcycles and is a top replacement tire choice for countless riders. Compared to the HYPERSPORT S21 tire, the HYPERSPORT S22 tire boasts improved dry grip and lightness coupled with sufficient wet performance. These features provide sport bike riders peace of mind when the weather suddenly deteriorates or when driving on wet surfaces.
