SPORT BIKE - TRACK
There are a number of tire tests that helped set the ranking, by Motorad and other sites. The more formal, comparative tests were given more weight in the ranking process than user reviews.
In some cases the same tire was reviewed in multiple tests, so this helped bridge the gap between tires being reviewed in one test but not another. Intermixed with these more formal tests are other tires that were not part of formal testing.
The Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 was tops in the Motorrad annual tire review. In total, the S22 won or tied for first in eight of nine categories. The tire is very precise through the corners. Braking distance tied for the best. The wet braking was similar to dry braking performance, which is noteworthy.
