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 Tire 4.9 5 21 21
Twisty Tire This is the 4th Rosso Corsa I've had on my Speed Triple. I've tried several others but nothing offers the traction and confidence that the Corsa does. This IS NOT a tire to use if you're concerned with tread life or touring. I commute 20 miles each day down some fairly twisty roads and get about 2-3000 miles before I have a decent flat spot and some cords showing. That said, cold grip is great and it just gets stickier as it warms. They never get greasy even in 110 degree Texas summers. Wet traction is fair at best. I don't mind riding in the wet, but I'm very cautious when its damp. April 21, 2014
Excellent road and eventual track tire Very good tire with excellent grip on road and track - not for racing though. It warms quite fast. Tire pressure is essential for grip and life spam. Under hard riding last about 3,500 km Highly recommended. March 26, 2014
Would recommend Nicest tires I've had on a bike before. They warm up pretty quick, and they have great grip. Even when the rear breaks loose it's not hard to control. I just noticed a few inches of chord showing today. Odometer shows 3505 miles, so about what I expected. I tend to do a lot of hard acceleration so no surprise there. Fortunately, this is the first set of tires I had that never got that sort of "cliff" where the middle wears down too much and it tends to fall into corners. February 10, 2014
Excellent road and track tire This tire under hard road and track riding should last about 7,000 km. (Rear about 3,500 - 4,000 km) Excellent grip in dry conditions. Never tried in wet as it does not rain here (UAE) It is not a racing tire. Correct tire pressure is essential for this tire performance and life. Ducati Streetfighter 848 March 24, 2014
Excellent Tires!! I installed these tires on a Friday rode back home (10miles). Went to The Snake(Mulholland Canyons) next day, wax film and everything not the smartest idea but the tires held there ground. No slips no nothing even hauling butt on a turn.. My specs- 5,5 Height 150 w/Gear Weight I would highly recommend these tires to anyone that canyon rides. January 28, 2014
awesome tire! made a bad mistake on the highway and i had to make a sharp turn into a roundabout going 90 mph so i pressed really hard on the right handlebar and started leaning at probably a 30° angle and im pretty sure i would have died if i didnt have the pirellis. October 21, 2013
Amazingly grippy tire First off let me tell you I went from the battlax bt016 to these and I can't figure out how anyone could ever even compare the two, the corsas blow them away in every way you could possibly want. I work swing shift, so I ride to work in the afternoon and ride home at about 1 am and with the battlax I would have to be extremely careful with the throttle when leaving work at night or the rear would break loose pretty easily, but I have not had the tire break loose once yet with the corsas and I've even clutched up some wheelies within a couple blocks from work when leaving at night without a problem. As far as turning goes it's a dream, super grippy and smooth. I'm so much more confident in the pirellis it's rediculous. Tread life is around 3500 miles on the street, but that's because it's a 50/50 street/track tire and well the more grip you get is typically the less mileage you get, but worth it imho. Wet grip got a 3 because I don't know and I don't ride this bike in the rain. I honestly don't know if I'll ever get tires from a different manufacturer again unless I could get a gigantic discount and even then I'd have to think about it, that's how good these are!

Good tire Nice grip and decent tread life even with some pretty aggressive riding... July 22, 2013

Andranik K: Really good sticky tire Mar 25, 2014
Brandon M: Only tire I run on my speed triple. Not the longest life tire but amazing traction. Very little warmup needed. Decent in the wet but it doesn't rain much here in the Hill Country of Texas. Jan 20, 2014
Rob M: Need a sticky tire with some touring capability for my BMW K1300S can keep up with my BMW HP4 on weekend rides. Oct 29, 2013
Vishal P: Great tire! Good for those who switch back and forth between the track and street. Oct 3, 2013
Basit S: ONLY THE BEST Sep 23, 2013

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
