Bridgestone and Saroléa team up for fourth Isle of Man TT.
Bridgestone is continuing its partnership with the all-electric Belgian motorcycle manufacturer Saroléa, the company said. For the fourth year in a row, Bridgestone and Saroléa will participate in the TT Zero races at the Isle of Man on June 7, 2017. The Saroléa SP7 racing bike is fitted with off-the-shelf Bridgestone Battlax tyres.
Nico Thuy, head of the motorcycle department at Bridgestone Europe, said: “This partnership gives Bridgestone an exciting opportunity to demonstrate that we push the limit when it comes to the quality of our products. And by entering our regular off-the-shelf Battlax Racing tyres to the TT Zero, we hope to show that we can give everyday riders the best possible performance.” Motorcycle racer Dean Harrison of Yorkshire, UK will pilot the SP7 for the second year in a row.
The Bridgestone and Saroléa partnership began in 2014 and provides full technical support and tyres for Saroléa’s track and road initiatives, Bridgestone said. It also highlights the tyre maker’s commitment to sustainable mobility and its environmental vision, which focuses on ecological and resource conservation, and reducing CO2 emissions.
