Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Rear Tires

The Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tires are the most versatile hypersport tire for road and track use. The profile and structure make it a reference point in the segment thanks to the excellent support ensured in inclination and rapid realignment coming out of bends. Made with the most modern EPT design technologies developed in the WSBK ensuring maximum grip on road and racetrack.

Three zone compound on rear represents the ideal way to offer the best performance where required in very different conditions (racetrack and road). The differentiated compounds between shoulders and centre zone are the winning solutions engineered to give to DIABLO ROSSO™ Corsa racing performance on racetrack and long lasting durability on road. High mileage is guaranteed by materials with high mechanical resistance in the central zone, while the high hysteresis shoulder compound gives steady grip response and incredible traction even at high lean angle. 

Diablo Rosso Corsa Tires offer a new way to measure tire performance: evaluating the ability to transfer the bike's power to the ground and expressing this as horsepower available on the ground. Thanks to the use of data acquisition equipment normally used for Superbike applications, Pirelli was able to measure the necessary parameters accurately to calculate the power transferred to the ground by the bike and hence by the tires. The results showed that, coming out of the turn, at the moment the bike is at maximum acceleration, DIABLO ROSSO™ Corsa is able to transfer at least an additional 10 HP to the ground in comparison to the other tires tested. The increased power transferred from the bike to the ground thanks to the new DIABLO ROSSO™ Corsa means faster acceleration coming out of turns, higher speeds in straight areas, and above all, faster lap times. 


  • Three zone ultra high performance tires
  • Delivers track performance on and off the track
  • Positioning of grooves optimized for use on road and racetrack
  • Profiles and structures set the new benchmark of the segment ensuring high support while leaning and fast stand up while accelerating out of the corner
  • Pirelli patented EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) optimizes the contact patch for the best grip on the road and on the track
  • By adopting Enhanced Patch Technology (EPT), DIABLO ROSSO™ Corsa ensures quick warm-up and a consistent hi-performance level lap after lap together with excellent performance recovery after stop & go
  • Pure racetrack performance combined with the comfort and predictability you expect from a high-performance street tire
  • World Superbike development technology improves structure and compounding
  • Continues with the aggressive Rosso tread design
  • W speed rating for speeds of 168+ mph

Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Rear Tires 4.8 5 43 43
Great Tires For Average Riders I had high expectations for these tires, but was slightly let down. Tires take a while to heat up, but are pretty sticky once warm. Great tires for commuting and highway riding with a little turns thrown in. For hard riding, these tires wear down quick and are not nearly as sticky once they start wearing thin. In short - if you're dragging knees daily, look for another set of shoes. If you're a commuter or weekend rider, these are great. March 25, 2015
Going to stick with this one. So my dilemma is that I have an odd rear tire size (180/60). This tire only comes as standard on a couple of bikes like the Ducati 848 Streetfighter and my Ducati 899. I've heard from some other people with 899s that going to a smaller circumference tire leads to erratic traction control performance, so I'm pretty much stuck using this tire due to the Ducati Traction Control. The good news is that it's a great tire. My first one lasted 4,500 miles before it was done, and that's including a hard track day in high heat at Road Atlanta. I know some people question it's wet performance but I've never had an issue. That might be partly due to the 899 having the low power delivery "wet mode" as well as ABS and rear wheel antilift. I can't tell if the tire has good traction in the wet, or if the electronic trickery is keeping everything in order (I don't make a habit of staring at my dash for the TC light while riding), but I've been riding on these tires since November 2013 and not had one issue. Just put a new one on and it's great. I will keep using this tire. February 19, 2015
Stock tires on a Street Triple These are the stock tires that came on my 2014 Street Triple and I have to say, I never cared for them. I could see how good they could be on the track or in aggressive canyon carving but I needed more than that. I primarily use my bike for commuting and the occasional day trip to the hills. Living in Seattle coupled with the kind of riding I do these were not the tire for me. Maybe I never rode them hard enough to get enough heat into them? I eventually switched to a set of Michelin. Like I said, no hate too what I'm sure is great track tire, but if you ride like I do, you may want to look elsewhere. February 5, 2015
Not good for cold wet days These came stock on my triumph street triple and I have to say when they are hot they feel great. In the summer they were pretty good tires especially that they were stock. In the winter not so much. I don't trust them enough on my morning commutes until I get onto the freeway and drive a couple miles. On rainy days even worse, I have to burn out for a good 10 seconds to make these puppies really hot. First day in the rain I rode on these they were slipping left and right doing turns going about 2 mph -___- really? If you are a track guy these are fantastic. January 2, 2015
Excellent warm up and grip On my third set of rears to 1 set of Rosso Corsa fronts. Front has excellent warm up time, grip, feedback, and life. Rears are even better but life is compromised, only 3-3.5k. Always squaring off the center after extended highway slabbing. December 17, 2014
Great choice for dry aggressive street or track use I've ridden these on both Thunderhill raceway and Reno/Fernley and had great traction at both. Warmup is reasonably quick and full grip was there by the 2nd lap. Streep warmup is a little slower but still quicker than several tires I've run. They are a bit slick in wet or cold conditions, but they really are a trackday tire at heart, so this is of little issue. They've worn very well so far, showing very little signs of wear after a couple track days and about 5 months of street use. December 7, 2014
I ride a Moto Guzzi Griso, so this tire is good. Provides the grip and confidence to take sexy winding road with some speed. The torque from my bike and the grip from tyre makes my acceleration awesome. October 27, 2014
Best grip, less miles Ive used two sets of these now and i still love them despite the relatively low milage they get. About 4k to a rear tire and 5.5-6k to the front. Traction is off the charts, and they warm very quickly December 8, 2014

ROGELIO H: This is my second set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa front and rear. The other brand I used was Bridgestone Batllax I was not very impressed with those tires. I have a friend that have sportmax tires on the same bike that I have. The sportmax is good tire on the street and the track but the Rosso Corsa are better on both they have superior grip they warmup time is very fast and when they do the tires get so sticky that you can have a faster corner entering speed and you can get on the throttle faster and harder then the sportmax. The only down fall is that this tires are more expensive and you will get lower miles out of it Jan 4, 2014

Juan C: Hello,
I guess you meant the Dunlop Sportmax. I'm not familiar with Dunlop as I always use Pirelli,
The Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa rear tire is an excellent tire for road and track however since I live in Dubai, I don't know how it will perform in wet roads.
Depending of your riding style it could last from 3,000 km to 6,000 km. Has excellent grip.
You will have to pay attention to tire pressure, so you can get the maximum from it.

Sean R: I have had great success with my Pirellis! Very good feel, long wear and amazing traction. I don't ride track, but get pretty aggressive on my Ducati Monster on the street and have never lacked for traction. The feedback from front and rear is very good. Highly recommended. Jan 16, 2014

A shopper asked: How does the pirelli diablo ross a corsa tire compare to the mich power pure? which tire would you recommend? Apr 26, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
supernoob: rode with a friend who used the power pures and he complained about slipping atleast once a 30 minute session while i only slipped twice the entire day with 10 sessions but that was my fault because i was on the brakes. same friend lets me ride his 600 on the street and they are pretty close, still prefer my corsas to his power pures on the road with not so hard riding. i don't like the shape of the power pure. it feels like it leans in unevenly while the corsas are round and the lean in feel more controlable.

Bogy: @Mikeyy39, I've owned both of them and of the two I'd go with the Pirelli, however be prepared to get only about 3000 miles out of those tires. If I may suggest, you should try the new Bridgestone Battlax S-20, WOW they stick better than any other non race tire I've tried! Jun 25, 2012

A shopper asked: Is it advisable to patch this tire? This morning I noticed that Id picked up a nail in the rear tire. I only have about 1000 miles on it and Id like to keep riding it if its safe to do so

Andrew H: The safest answer is no, it is not advisable. Being that 50% of the most important component of your bike has been compromised, the best and safest solution is replacement. That being said, if you do not intend to use this tire aggressively and keep a constant eye on tire pressures, it can be done. I have several friends who have patched there motorcycle tires with no ill effect. But ultimately, the price of your safety is up to you. May 29, 2014

Juan C: Hello Oleg,
I don't know but please consider the following:

You will have to check if swing arm and chain side distance is more than 200 mm both separetly as you may have space in the swing arm but the chain could be lesser.
The other point is the sidewall or height of tyre are measured as a ratio between the first (width) number and the second number. 200/55 means that width is 200 and shoulder is 55% of 200, in this case 110 mm whereas the original tyre I think is 190/55 or 190/50 meaning the height of the tyre is 104.5 and 95 mm respectively.
Most importantly this tyre will make your bike to be less flickable, meaning it will not turn as quickly as designed due to different tyre profile. Also the tyre carcass will not deform as needed for the bike design which might not have the grip you are looking for - some debate here though.
My suggestion: stick to the original size, your bike will perform better.
