Bridge­stone Bat­tle­cruise H50 £280 a pair

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

The Ja­panese tyre gi­ant’s first cruiser tyre, the all-new Bat­tle­cruise H50, has been launched to ap­peal specif­i­cally to rid­ers of Amer­i­can V-twins. Two waves of fit­ments will be avail­able. On sale now, the first has cross- ply con­struc­tion, comes in eight sizes front and rear, and is aimed at smaller, lighter mod­els such as the In­dian Scout and Har­ley Sport­ster. It’s suit­able for some Har­ley ‘Big Twins’ such as the Sof­tail Slim, too.

A sec­ond wave, in­clud­ing some ra­di­als, is sched­uled for Jan­uary 2018, and comes in 14 larger sizes (right up to a 240-sec­tion rear) de­signed for heav­ier tour­ers. Bridge­stone say the H50 gives class-lead­ing per­for­mance, ex­cel­lent grip and tyre life that’s claimed to be up to 90% bet­ter than con­ven­tional ri­vals’. On the down­side, no white­walls will be of­fered, as they com­pro­mise per­for­mance. Sizes: 130/90-16 73H, 130/90-16 67H, 100/90-19 and 80/90-21 front; 130/90-16, 140/90-16, 150/80-16 and 160/ 70-17 rear. www.bridge­stone.co.uk
