When presented late last year, the Diablo Rosso Corsa II was hailed as Pirelli’s “first tri-compound motorcycle tyre” for the road, a product developed using technology directly taken from the FIM World Superbike Championship. This provenance and compounding wizardly has now been scrutinised by German motorcycling magazine PS. The publication’s test team liked what they found.
Drawing upon experience gained during its 15 years as official tyre supplier to the FIM Superbike World Championship, Pirelli says it has now merged its best technologies from racetrack and road to produce the Diablo Rosso Corsa II. This latest member of the Diablo family will be available worldwide from January 2018.
