Bridgestone launches Battlecruise H50 tyres for American V-twin motorcycles

October 21, 2016

bikeHaving a long history of developing high-performance motorcycle tyres, Bridgestone Corporation has recently launched the Battlecruise H50 tyre,a new line of motorcycle tyres engineered exclusively to fit many popular and iconic American V-twin motorcycles.

The first of its kind from Bridgestone, the Battlecruise H50 tyre expands the company’s motorcycle tyre portfolio with a performance tyre offering that is specially designed for large displacement, cruiser-style bikes, which account for 50% of motorcycles on US roadways.

The new line of motorcycle tyre delivers the performance and attributes that meet the needs of American cruiser riders. Engineered using the company’s proprietary optimisation process and indoor testing facility, Ultimate Eye, the Battlecruise H50 tyre was designed to provide:

  • Superb handling with reduced steering effort: The Battlecruise H50 tyre offers a large contact patch and uniform contact pressure, creating high cornering force and resulting in less steering effort and light linear handling.
  • Strong wet and dry traction: Proven best-in-class tread pattern features central grooves that run circumferentially around the tyre to evacuate water and provide enhanced grip, similar to the class-leading Bridgestone Exedra Max metric cruiser touring tyre.
  • Long tread wear: Optimised profiles coupled with newly developed compounds and constructions provide long wear life and lower handlebar vibration to reduce rider fatigue.

“We’ve extended our influence into one of the most important motorcycle segments in America, and we’re excited to bring our deep industry expertise and Bridgestone-brand motorcycle tyres to this group,” said Kevin Hunley, senior manager, motorcycle and kart products, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.

“Riders of today’s cruisers look for a tyre that can provide exceptional grip and longer treadwear while enhancing their riding experience. We’ve accomplished that with the Battlecruise H50 motorcycle tyre as it brings ultimate performance, ride comfort and traction in all conditions,” Hunley added.

Additionally, the Battlecruise H50 is the only Bridgestone brand motorcycle tyre that offers the peace of mind of a road hazard warranty that covers eligible tyres that may become damaged or unusable from a puncture, impact, bruise, cut or snag.

Beginning January 2017, the Bridgestone Battlecruise H50 motorcycle tyre will be available in eight sizes for select American V-twin cruiser models. Riders can expect 14 additional sizes for touring-oriented models to come available in early 2018.
