Pirelli Diablo's Opinions...

So heres the deal....
I could pick up a set of brand new pirelly diablo tires from a buddy of mine for $175. The thing i want to know is how good of tire are they and how many miles i should expect out of them. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated i see on motorcycle superstore they got great ratings but i thought i would try on here before i buy them for sure. Thanks guys!!

Re: Pirelli Diablo's Opinions...

I personally have the diablo Rosso tires F&R, and while I can't speak to the longevity of them yet (only a few hundred miles old) I can say that I am very happy with their performance. The amount of grip over factory tires is substantial, and on angle,mtheese tire grip like Velcro.

My only word of caution would be that they do require some warmup time compared to stock. When cold, the rear has locked up on me a few times during branding while approaching a red light. This was my fault though, not the tires. Once they warmup though, they are awesome.

Re: Pirelli Diablo's Opinions...

Mileage on a tire is subjective.....I have a set of Pirelli Dragon's on a track bike that I use to CR with, love the tire, I am about 6 seconds off of my race pace on them and had no worries, now which diablo is it? The street tire? Race tire? SP?

Tommy, you think you had to slow up on the dragons? They are so affordable right now it's unreal man. Sc1 front and Sc2 rear and I'm a happy camper on a traditional feeling and shaped race tire. It may be old technology, but they seem to last quite a bit. I run em on the Honda CBR1000RR on the street and they are awesome. I doubt they'd be good in this weather tho. :/

Well it is not my bike that I cr on, and it's not set up for me. Had I had the proper springs, and everything that I like about my R1, I wound have been closer to that. However, IF I would have slapped on a set of cups I would have beat my race times on a bike not set up for me

The corsa 3 is an old tire, it compares to the rosso 2 that is out now, it is a good tire for street riding and I put a few sets on customers bikes and they loved them. Pirelli tires don't get the best mileage on the street, but offer great grip!
