Bridgestone, the world’s number one tyre and rubber company¹, has applied its top Battlax motorcycle tyre technologies to upgrade its scooter tyre line-up.
Maxi scooter riders are now able to choose between Battlax Scooter SC2, the sport tyre, and Battlax Scooter SC2 Rain, the day-to-day touring tyre for maxi scooters.
Nico Thuy, Head of Europe - Motorcycle at Bridgestone EMEA explains: “Bridgestone has moved up closer to consumers and developed two versions of the new Battlax scooter tyre to match their different usage and riding styles. And by applying our flagship Battlax tyre technologies on both versions, Battlax Scooter SC2 and SC2 Rain can promise riders unbeatable performance.”
Battlax Scooter SC2: the sport tyre for maxi scooters
Battlax Scooter SC2 focuses on dry performance and has been developed with the latest Battlax Hypersport S21 technologies. Riders will appreciate how the whole SC2 package accentuates the ease and fun of riding sporty scooters.
The front and rear SC2 hypersport tread designs provide optimum rigidity, surface contact and grip performance, with new compounds selected for their outstanding dry grip across all temperature ranges.
On the rear tyre, the triple-layer-compound tread² offers riders the best of both worlds: high grip and cornering contact feel from the shoulder compound and wear resistance from the centre-area compound, with maximum performance throughout the tyre life.
Battlax SC2 Rain: day-to-day touring tyre, safe and confident on wet.
Battlax Scooter SC2 Rain provides exceptional traction and handling on wet surfaces, supporting scooter riders in their daily commute. Development is based on technologies introduced by the new Battlax Sport Touring T31 tyre, promising a safe and confident ride, whatever the conditions.
Both front and rear SC2 Rain tyres use the Battlax T31 sport touring tread pattern which is tuned to balance straight-line stability and sharp handling response. Wet performance is enhanced by the higher void ratio which improves drainage, and by new rubber compounds with high silica content, offering exceptional grip feel on cold and wet surfaces.
Again, the triple-layer-compound tread on the rear provides high grip and cornering contact feel from the shoulder compound and wear resistance from the centre-area compound, with maximum performance throughout the tyre life.
Battlax Scooter SC2 is available in 2 front and rear sizes; SC2 Rain offers 1 front size and 3 rear sizes.
