Bridgestone launches Battlax Hypersport S20 EVO, the successor to its award winning S20 tyre
Snapshot: Nine time world champion Valentino Rossi assisted Bridgestone in developing these tyres that are meant for street, but have technology used in MotoGP
Who in this world can have the highest word when it comes to tyres and grip? Of course a MotoGP rider. And to make everyone shut up and listen with maximum sincerity, Bridgestone brought on board a legend that needs no introduction. That is the reason when nine time world champion Valentino Rossi assisted one of the biggest players in the world of tyres, almost no one had any doubt about the quality of the product.
With the S20's class-leading performance, grip and safety, the successor also has greater durability and stability. In a way, it can be said that with this tyre Bridgestone was able to make the best better. The tyre manufacturer also released a promotional video where Rossi can be seen riding a Yamaha YZF R1 with S20 EVO tyres.
On his involvement, Rossi said, "When pushing to the limit you learn a lot about everything. Yourself. The bike. The tire. Sharing my experience, feelings and knowledge from the racetrack is important to those around me, it keeps the technology evolving.”
