Bridgestone Battlax tyres to be OE on the 2017 Yamaha YZF-R6

Bridgestone's Battlax Hypersport S21

Bridgestone’s Battlax Hypersport S21 will be original equipment on Yamaha Motor’s 2017 YZF-R6 super sport motorcycle. A popular model in the R series, the new Yamaha YZF-R6 sees its first major model change in nearly a decade.

Battlax Hypersport S21 tyres evolved from the Battlax Hypersport S20 EVO tyres, which delivered the dry-road grip performance and nimble handling expected of sports radial tyres. The Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S21 tyre was engineered using the company’s proprietary optimisation process, ULTIMAT EYE, to provide the superior grip, abrasion resistance, exceptional cornering performance, and high wear resilience required for super sport riding.
