Bridgestone's Battlax BT023 tyre has had a big impact on the biking industry. It was voted by Bike magazine as the best sports-touring all-rounder. Bridgestone developed the BT023 to deliver consistent high level performance for touring and sport riding. This sport-touring tyre also accomdates the larger heavier bikes with the GT version. It has now been superseded by the T30 which in turn has lowered the price.
