Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Front Tires
Great tire for the money!
Excellent grip in the corners never worry about it holding a line. Down side is everytime I have a tire that grips this well it doesn't last long..As for how it works in the rain...I live in southern California...It doesn't rain here...but I would buy this tire again and most likely will...

Absolutely Perfect for Ninja 300
If you want tires that can really bring out the maximum agility of your Ninja 300, look no further.
The profile on the Rosso II is a perfect compliment to the Ninja's light weight, making flipping the bike back and forth in the twisties almost completely effortless. The Ninja begs to be turned into corners with these tires, and once you're leaned over they'll keep you locked to the road with absolute confidence. I've pushed them pretty hard on the street, and never felt even a slight slip on dry pavement (wet is a different story).
I wouldn't expect to get high mileage from these tires, nor would I try touring on them in the first place. Wet grip is pretty poor (expect some slipping unless you pussyfoot through the corners), and I'm already seeing some tread wear after about 1500 miles.
However, if fun on the Ninja is your goal, you cannot do better.
For comparison, I recently swapped out the Rosso II's for Pirelli Sport Demons so I could do a 2,000 miles road trip comfortably. The Sport Demons were fantastic for touring for a lot of reasons, but they sapped a lot of the Ninja's natural agility, making the bike noticeably harder to throw around on the backroads (though still better than the stock tires). I'm looking forward to putting the Rosso II's back on and lighting up the curves again - the difference is night and day.

Very nice looking, very stable, and has more grip than I have skills, so it's a perfect tire.

Great price on a very good tire for everyday use, good on track as well

2nd time buying a complete set. Great tire. I have had a couple "uh oh" moments when I entered a corner at what I thought was too fast. Kept cool, leaned the motorcycle over more, and the tires handled the situation beautifully. These tires definitely inspire confidence. What was previously my "little too fast" pace is the "oh yeah, gimme me more!" pace.

Excellent, would buy another set for the next change.
Haven't had it for too long, but Ive broken it in at least and it is much better than the OEM. A noticeable increase in grip, feels nice and planted as well as stable. Also the bike (Ninja 300) feels alive, very flickable.

Very sticky tires
I believe these are the best tires for the Ninja 300. I definitely felt the difference between the stock Ninja 300 tires. Warms up nicely at the track. I haven't had any slippage yet compared to stock tires. I've ridden in the rain and the bike feels very planted. I have put 700 miles on them so far and I read the rear only last about 4,500-5,000 miles depending on riding style. That's the only downside because 5,000 miles is easily achieved in one riding season. The front will last longer but for the cheap price and free shipping, it is best to replace both front and rear when the time is up.
