BATTLAX S21 – WORLDWIDE PRESS-LAUNCH
YAS MARINA CIRCUIT, ABU DABHI
In order to get the most out of a motorcycle you need great tires. Bridgestone has proven itself to be very capable when it comes to producing high-performance tires—just take a look at the past seven years of MotoGP. But it’s taken until now for that MotoGP technology to really trickle down into the street-going sport tires you and I can buy.Bridgestone chose the gleaming Yas Marina F1 circuit in Abu Dhabi to debut its new 2016 Battlax Hypersport S21 sport tire to the world’s motorcycle press. The new S21 is said by Bridgestone to be the first of its tires to feature leading-edge design concepts straight from the MotoGP grid and is intended to replace the S20 Evo, which itself was a very good sport tire.
Bridgestone had a wide selection of bikes shod with the new Battlax Hypersport S21, allowing us to sample its confidence-inspiring performance on the Yas Marina circuit.
