Find the best motorcycle tires for your specific bike, surface, and style. We’ll make it easy to get rolling
NASHVILLE, TENN. (January 1, 2022)
If you race Supermoto in the United States or Canada, you know your selection of premium slick racing tires is limited.
This is due to the lack of options available for the 16.5-inch front tires that many of the Supermoto race bikes arrive with, including the popular KTM 450 SMR and Husqvarna FS 450.
Bridgestone Motorcycle Tires has listened to the requests. Due to popular demand among multiple stateside and Canadian Supermoto riders, Bridgestone will reintroduce its popular BM01 and R02 Supermoto tires.
There’s a reason the KTM 450 SMR and Husqvarna FS 450 arrived from the factory with the BM01 and R02 supermoto race tires. These tires offer excellent braking and steering response due to their balanced lateral and linear grip—two things racers need to win.
These non-DOT racing slicks are available in the following sizes:
To cater to a racer’s feel and track conditions, the 17-inch RO2 rear tires are available in two compounds: soft (YCX compound) or medium (YCY compound).
