The tyres’ criss-crossing diagonal grooves have been designed to enhance their all-weather gripping ability, with 5mm front and 9mm rear tread depth. This variation between front and rear tyres is intended to prevent irregular wear, extend the tyres’ longevity and also helps reduce tyre noise.
“Bridgestone has a longstanding relationship with Triumph and is delighted to have been chosen as original equipment on the latest launch,” said Gary Hartshorne, motorcycle technical manager at Bridgestone UK. “The pairing of the Tiger 800 XC and the Battlewing is very exciting and will offer customers the ultimate in high performance.”
