I bought the 180/55R17 for my 600RR, mounted up easily with hand tools. What I noticed first was the ample tread depth, this should give decent service life for street/mountain riding. Depending on the lifespan, I will likely continue to purchase these in the future.

Needed new tires bad. I had a shinko rear and the original front on my 05 Hayabusa. With just under 14k on the bike. With some upgrades and Mods I wanted to find a great set of tires and not spend a bunch of money. The Bridgestone battle axes looked and felt great on my bike. After about 100 miles on the tires I opened the bike up and it ride like a brand new bike felt the response when I leaned in the curves loved it. I’m not sure if I will buy anything else
i thought the S20's where good but the S21's are great
At first I was a bit hesitant about purchasing battleax as I have always gone a different route. Seeing as tires are the most crucial component I really wanted to take time pushing them to their limits. So far, they have performed above and beyond my expectations. Dry roads they grip like they are nailed to the road, even when you are melting the chicken strip. My biggest concern was wet roads as I live in Florida and it rains nearly every day. They maintain grip when getting your lean on on wet roads ( I don’t recommend anyone tries to drag knee on wet roads ). But with that, they have passed my testing and I will be buying a set of these again.
I bought the set. Better than the Michelin pilot. Great in the canyons, and get more mileage on these tires
Great tires battleax performance great last good time
Bike handles better with these tires. Last longer than my last tires
Going through my second S21 rear tire, first front coming from the S20 tire and really love this tire. I ride pretty aggressive street and have done 4 track days so far on the s21 and its an excellent tire for mid to advanced group. At full lean it inspires confidence and the also is very sticky. In the rain it has decent traction and will get you home having been caught in a few storms. For the performance, price, longevity, looks and profile options this tire is a no brainer.
This is the 4th set that i have purchased over the course of 3 Bikes, 06 GSXR600, 04 R1, and now my 09 R1. these tires have a great turn in, great feedback on the limit, very confidence in the Bridgestone name. only have about 400 miles on them but i usually get 5-7k miles out of a rear with a new front every other rear. bridgestone has made an amazing Street tire with the S21
I am very happy with the purchase. Motosport.com guys hooked me up with this tires very professionally, fast service, fast shipping, and awesome merchandise too. The S21 tires I got were manufactured the same year I bought them. I put 1500 miles so far, and the wear rate looks so much better than my previous set, the BT16. I am happy with the set so far because it has so much grip everywhere. I am confident both in dry and wet conditions with the tires. I have put the tires in the twisties, and so far they have made me feel safe.
