Using new patterns and new compounds, in the S20 Bridgestone offers durability and long wear life while improving grip performance at both high temperatures and low temperatures, such as immediately after start and in wet conditions. Also, by optimizing the tire structure in the S20, Bridgestone was able to increase the running contact pressure and contact surface and focus on high performance in dry conditions and stable handling. The BATTLAX series is Bridgestone's premium brand of on-road motorcycle tires. The top of the line of the BATTLAX tires are the MotoGP class tires used in the FIM (Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme) road race series, for which Bridgestone is the official tire supplier.

I waited until I had a few hundred miles on the tire before posting a review. Thus far the tire has performed extremely well with excellent grip and predictable performance under heavy breaking, turn-in, extreme lean angles, and hard acceleration. It definitely inspires confidence to push hard through the mountain/canyon roads.
I cannot comment on track day performance as I have not had a chance to bring it to the track. However, given the response thus far on the streets, I would expect this tire to be at home on the track as well. It warms up quickly, enabling you to go hard almost right out of the gate.
If this tire performs well during the winter months and in wet weather, I will definitely pruchase this again. Due to lack of track time and inclement weather rides, I did not give it 5 stars. However, I fully expect the tire would come close to, if not fully perform as, a 5 tire rated tire.
Yes, I recommend this product.
