Top Bridgestone Battlax Sport Touring T30 EVO Review

Given 93% while driving a (190/50 R17 W) on for 0 miles
Suit the ZZR & my riding style really well with much improved road life over the S20 Evo's. Showing 6,000mls of even wear from hard mountain riding and just about to be replaced with another pair of the same T30 Evos. A little bit less top end feel/feedback and glue like grip that the S20's has but hey this is a real world tyre and will do everything you ask of it with reliable feel & consistent grip.

Given 34% while driving a Yamaha FJR1300A (120/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
I bought a pair of the Bridgestone BT 30 EVOs for my 2006 FJR May 20 2020. May have 600 miles on the them and the left side of the front is worn to the cords. The rear is great. I've never had a front tire wear that bad that fast. I've been riding since 1965. I ran Bridgestone BT 20 and never had an issue.

Motorcycle Tyre, matched set front & rear: 120/70/17 180/55/17
I got the bike with these tyres on. I've never been a Bridgestone fan but heard good things about these tyres. They are down to about 2mm of tread in the centre with about 5-6k miles on them. For a sport touring tyre where the centre is not that soft it's not a good tyre life. I get more from a Michelin Pilot Power 2CT which is a sportier all round tyre.
My biggest criticism of theses tyres except the wear is the feedback - there isn't any. You can't tell when they are warm or cold, or if you are close to the edge of adhesion. You have to use your instinct and hope it is right. I've not had any slides or wheels spin up so the grip is there but it doesn't give that re-assuring feedback. The feedback on the compound does not reflect either - very little in the way of colour change and tread surface marks. My guess here would be the compound is not soft enough to be affected without pushing on very hard and getting a lot of heat in to the tyre.
Overall a good tyre, but not one i bonded with or felt like i could comfortably push on when on an inspiring piece of road.

Given 77% while driving a Yamaha FZ6 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,500 spirited miles
Good tyres. Bought the original set in Oct 2017 & just had the front replaced with another T30 Evo.
They take a while to warm up in the winter months but once at warm temperatures are very good.
Excellent grip in the wet & even better in the dry. I've had my bike right over and they held their position on the road. They're easy to flick round corners.
Wear is ok. Front wears down quicker than rear. I got about 8500 miles off the front. The rear is still going strong with excellent wear pattern.

Given 89% while driving a Yamaha FZS 600 (120/70 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 16,777 average miles
I ride mostly highway with a little bit inside the city. I also took the motorcycle on a roadtrip from the Netherlands to Croatia last summer. Over the past 18 months I have ridden more than 27,000km with these tyres. I do not know how many kilometers they've done since I got them used with the motorcycle (looked fairly untouched at the time, but were not new). The front tire has now still 1000km to go according to the garage and rear 4000km. They have given me great grip in all type of weather condition: From the hot Croatian summer to light snow on a Dutch winter day, I have always had the feeling they have good grip and comfort.

Given 89% while driving a Yamaha FJR1300A (180/55 R17 R) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Had these fitted to my FJR1300A. I use BT 023's and wanted to see the improvement from these tyres. My initial impression was great. They are precise and make the bike feel lighter and accurate. On long slow bends they are fantastic. The bike drops down and flicks back up-confidence inspiring!! I have ridden them on all combination of roads including Europe. They have now done 6k miles. Only at 5.5K did a flat line appear on both front and back tyres. However, this flat line could not be felt when riding and had no adverse effect on the tyre performance. They warm up quickly (experience has taught me to take it steady for the first 10 miles of the ride!!) and have proven to be excellent in the wet (torrential downpour). They are a superb tyre for the FJR both for touring with luggage and pillion and also having a bit of fun when out with other bikers. I would buy them again and recommend to others? They boasted 20% more mileage, with 023's I gained 8500miles, with these I am looking at a hopeful 10K. At the moment, there is still plenty of meat on both tyres.
