Pirelli claims it has further raised the “bar of sport riding” within the Diablo Rosso family by introducing the Diablo Rosso IV Corsa. The Italian brand describes the newcomer as a “fiercer version” of the Diablo Rosso IV supersport tyre and says it created the Corsa to provide the most demanding riders with a hypersport tyre that best expresses the potential of their supersport, naked or hypernaked bikes.
The FIM MiniGP World Series was launched earlier this year as the “newest path on the Road to MotoGP” and to serve as an umbrella for the various national, regional and continental MiniGP competitions, such as the FIM MiniGP UK Series. Through its partnership with FIM, Dorna Sports S.L. and Ohvale, Pirelli serves as sole tyre supplier, and to equip these bikes the tyre maker has presented its first NHS competition range dedicated to small motorcycles with 10- and 12-inch wheels, such as pitbikes, minimotards and scooters.
More than five million Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres of one kind or another have been made since the first product to bear this name was introduced in 2008, and this number will keep on rising. As we enter 2021, Pirelli is gearing up to release the fourth generation of this tyre family, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV.
This year a new range of Pirelli Diablo tyres geared towards track use will be brought to market. The additions for 2019 include: New compounds for the Diablo Superbike slick in the standard 200/60 ZR 17 rear and 120/70 ZR 17 front sizes; a new SCX solution (ExtraSoft) for the Diablo Superbike slick in size 200/65; larger Diablo Superbike Slicks in 200/65 ZR17 rear (SC0 compound) and 125/70 ZR17 front (SC1 compound); a new Diablo Rain rear tyre in size 200/60 ZR 17, available in two different compounds; and a new Diablo Supercorsa SC, the third generation of this range to be introduced.
