“Long Life”, “Smooth Handling” and “Comfort Riding”

“BATTLECRUISE H50” invites American V-twin riders for breezy cruising…

Cruising in relaxed style on big displacement American cruisers.

This is where the BATTLECRUISE H50 promises to lead you. “Long Life”, “Smooth Handling” and “Comfort Riding” are the key features that H50 offers.

The rear tire can claim a long life as much as 2.7 times of the EXEDRA MAX.

Its handling capabilities allow even bikes of nearly 300kg to turn smoothly at both low and high speeds, minimizing fall-in characteristics in turns.

By reducing the transmissions of vibration of V-Twins, it provides a comfortable ride and helps to prevent fatigue, even when touring over long distances.

With the BATTLECRUISE H50, designed specially for big-displacement American cruisers, we want you to savor the laid-back cruising of the V-Twin.

Comfort with less fatigue

By optimizing rigidity distribution (vertical spring rate), the front tire absorbs energy inputs from the road surface while maintaining rigidity, reducing vibration through the handlebars.

Imperfections on the road surface are well damped. You will realize a real comfort touring with reduced fatigue even at long distance cruising.

Smooth handling

Using ULTIMAT EYE , the contact properties were analyzed to optimize the tire shape and structure accordingly.

This resulted in the generation of significant camber thrust, improving cornering grip and enhancing handling performance.

The large and uniform contact properties secures high stability in any lean angle.

Even on heavy machines that do not turn in quickly, control becomes easier and more enjoyable for the rider.

Tread Pattern

The tread pattern design of the BATTLECURISE H50 has been employed from EXEDRA MAX, adding diamond cut deco-grooves for the design enhancement.
Our pattern designer was inspired by leather craft stitches to come up with these deco-grooves.

BATTLECRUISE H50 Launch

The 3 day launch event for media was held in the vicinity of Orlando Florida near the Apoka lake during Oct.17th through 20th, 2016.
