Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Tires

Bringing the race winning technology developed for World Superbike to the street, the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Tires deliver superior grip and wear-life for sport riders looking for a performance upgrade. The Tri-zone dual compound composition and improved tread design offers improved drainage, better wear regularity and advanced handling.

Features:

The Diablo Rosso II is the sportiest and most versatile road-oriented tire of the Rosso generation
Diablo Rosso II is Pirelli's newest super sport radial for all riding conditions, including the wet
Grip is enhanced even further by EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) developed in WSBK, which optimizes the contact patch for improved grip
A maximum contact patch area is due in part to an ICS (Integrated Contour Shaping) technology, complimenting handling and power of today's modern motorcycles
Slick shoulder area maximizes grip at full lean which boosts confidence and performance while cornering
Functional Groove Design (FGD) to optimize wet behavior
D Spec tire is OE for 2013 Ducati's fitted with Rosso II tires

This may be an unpopular opinion but I put these on my 696 and was overjoyed when I got a punctured rear tire. I bought them during soggy Washington winter and ride for 4 months, I never felt confident on the side of the tire. I replaced with Michelin Road 6 and those are amazing!

Not unpopular. Tires are like different types of shoes, you have to match them up according to your usage (and bike type) to achieve best performance. The Rosso II's are a great tire for a weekend track warrior while not sacrificing too much street usage. They are best used for the Sports Bike class.

my man. got the Michelin road 6 GT's a few hundred miles ago. big fan of them so far. got a hell of a deal on revzilla, I bought giftcarsd on sale, + gave me tool kits, then I used military discount + matching etc.. idk price, but it was way cheaper than everyone else.

'just sucks paying 150 to get tires mounted. used to be 100 before covid D: damn inflation
here's my little touring machine. just hit 2k on it few days ago. I chose GT due to bike being 500lbs with panniers, myself 150lbs, and my gf 100lbs when she rides with me, and possibly up to 20lbs of luggage weight. but me riding around solo, it feels great. not too harsh or anything. I havnt done anything to the suspension. I am a light guy though, Suzukis are pretty perfect for me weight wise pre set suspension.

I figure all said and done, GT was better than regular variant.

I hate the Rosso II's my bike shipped with. Terrible traction in every category. The carcass felt very thin and dangerous. I'm now Bridgestone for life.

My bike also came with the Rosso II's and I have had the exact opposite experience with them. Having said that, my next set will most likely be Bridgestones. ('22 Duc Panigali)

Yeah it was surprising as Pirelli's seem to be highly regarded. I've ridden Pirelli Sport Demons (I'd call "budget tires"--made to a price, not terrible) and Angel GTs (I liked those A LOT on a faster, heavier sport tourer) but the Rosso II's spun easily and frequently in rain and even dry a few times with low demands placed upon them. Two seasons in a row they were punctured while I was cornering and it's because of those times I now prefer a stiffer, thicker tire carcass than these provide. Finally they developed a very strange half-hexagonal wear pattern and flat spotted easily. Turn-in never felt good to me, this may be due to the U-shape profile. These may be great tires if you live somewhere very hot and dry, but I rode twisties and commuted in Virginia year-round and they don't heat up/retain as well as my Bridgestone S22's. According to one of Ryan F9's (fortnine YT) videos any stock tire may be a variant with different properties and compounds used than that of its namesake so take all this with a pinch of rubber.

I noticed a lot of MC deals go into "Sporting Goods" and not "Auto>Motorcycle Gear and Accessories"
