Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Front Tires 4.8 5 119 119
Great tire. Very nice looking, very stable, and has more grip than I have skills, so it's a perfect tire. June 29, 2015
Great tire 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. June 1, 2015
great tire, amazing handling very happy with the performance of these tires, this is my third set. June 1, 2015
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. June 23, 2015
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. May 5, 2015
Feels like a new bike After doing some research and checking out my existing tires, I figured it was about time to replace. Got the tires delivered in 4 days and then took to the shop for install. What a difference it made having stickier not flat tires! made the whole experience so much better. Deff. recommend these tires. May 4, 2015
Great tire but very short life for a dual compound. I replaced my HORRIBLE OEM bridgestones on my '12 Yamaha FZ8 with these. The feel and amount of grip these tires provided were incredible!! They feel VERY stable in turns even over tar strips and patches and inspire a lot of confidence to keep pushing. My bike is no liter bike but it has a pretty stout mid range and I can come out of a corner leaned over to the edge of the tire and come out of the apex at wide open throttle without a hint of wiggle or slipping. I've had them in the rain a few times (I try to avoid it# and they've felt very stable and never slipped once #I do run on the very safe side in the wet though). Now for the downside. I commute on my bike a lot and average 7,000+ miles a year. My commute consists of about 5 miles of highway and the other 30 is back roads with some twists and turns here and there but a decent amount of straightline riding. This is why I went with a dual compound tire. I am only at a hair over 2,000 miles on these and the rear is getting a very pronounced flat spot in the middle already! These are gonna be lucky to make it to 3,500 miles or so. This is the same mileage my friends get out of their ULTRA sticky Q3's! I check my pressure regularly and run the rear around 35-36psi for commuting. This was VERY disappointing as I was really hoping to get 5-6,000 miles out of these. June 8, 2015
I really don't like this tire This tire takes a good 30 mins of warming up before you can really do anything with them. When they are cold they have no traction. I've had my front end lock up lock on me on multiple occasions, and the front end is not as confidence inspiring as my old Mitchelins 2CT. I'll be switching back to Mitchelins soon. April 12, 2015

James S: O.E. Tire replacement [front] Apr 9, 2014
Christopher P: These tires have never let me down. They are sticky, predictable, and don't wear too quickly with aggressive riding. Apr 8, 2014
Gerald G: I have a set of Battleaxe tires that came stock with my 2012 ZX-10R. Whenever I lean into a corner my rear tire has a tendency to get a little squirrely on me from time to time. It's not because I go too low either, I have the chicken strips to prove it. Even when I apply me rear brake (not locking it mind you) I feel my rear fishtail. I just want to be comfortable pushing my bike as much as possible without fear that my tire is gonna give out on me. So far from what I hear Pirelli is just the tire I need to tear it up on the streets and leave only rubber behind and not plastics and pieces of my gear on the road. I"m stoked to try these out, hundreds of reviewers and Moto GP can't be wrong, so if all goes well the only thong I should be worried about are the things that should always be constant in my mind. Like pot holes, oil spots, loose gravel, and people that drive like they received their license from a Cracker Jack box, my bike and it's tires shouldn't be an issue Mar 20, 2014
John P: Stock tire for my Diavel. Can't go wrong with Pirelli! Mar 16, 2014

Austin D: I chose this tire because it is the best option for my Ducati Diavel. This is the OE tire for my Diavel and provides excellent performance/traction. Jan 31, 2014
Keith K: I DO NOT recommend this tire. I put this tire on the rear of my 2013 Triumph Street Triple, under the same riding conditions, and it lasted thousands of miles LESS than the Pirelli Diablo Corsa. I switched to Dunlop Sportmax Q3. Jan 20, 2014

Nolan S: Review. Pirelli's reputation. Look and price. Sep 12, 2013
A S asked: My primary riding method is commuting. I try to avoid riding when there's rain - only rarely get caught in the rain. I'm looking for good grip on dry, and wet roads for those "just in case" moments, to increase my confidence. Would the Pirelli Diablo II be a better fit than the Michelin Pilot Road 3 (I ride a Suzuki SFV650)? Apr 14, 2015

Charles N: I use the Rosso's front and rear on a DRZ400SM. They need to warm up, but the dry grip is very good and when they do start to slide, it is very predictable. The wear is much better than the Conti SMs I was running. Rain grip is good to, although I never push it to hard in the wet. Apr 14, 2015

Manuel H: I never had the pilot road 3's, so I can't really compare. The Pirelli's are great, I had them for a while on my computer bike and had great grip. I live in Southern Cal. And don't have much rain.

Hope this helps.

James k: They warm up quick. I've never had an issue in the early am with the front tire sliding on the damp crosswalk a block from my house. Other rear tires would slide but the Rosso 2 held the best. The warm up faster with some side to side riding that makes the neighbors look at you funny.
I did a lot of to work and back without many twistys with my current set :( and strangely they did not get a big center flat spot. They wore to a point so drop in was fun. So that's a plus in my book.

A shopper asked: Whats the difference between the 110/70R17H and the 110/70R17W? Dec 13, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The "H" and "W" associated with the size 110/70-17 is in reference to the speed rating. The 110/70R17-"H" is rated to 130mph and 110/70R17-"W" is good for 168mph. The other sizes, 120/60-17 and 120/70-17 are both "Z" rated and capable of 150+. However, we are sure that all of our customers are responsible and would never attempt those speeds. ;) Dec 13, 2012

Steven W asked: What is a 'D' spec tire and what benefit does it have over a non-D spec tire if any? May 31, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Donald T: None, I think D spec is just the Ducati OEM. I have ordered non d spec and d spec and they are the same. I think it has to do with licensing maybe. Because Ducati gave pirelli an exclusive on that size for a few years. Just a guess but makes no difference on the bike. Jun 24, 2015

A shopper asked: The owners manual for my 2008 ZZR600 recommends 120/65ZR17(56W). I see that the 65 isn't available. What do you recommend in place of the 65? Go up or go down a size or pick another tire manufacturer that carries the correct size? Feb 12, 2014

JOHN B: You might want to check the ZZR forum and ask about this specific tire. When I put Bridgestone S20's on my ZZR600, I went with the 70. They totally transformed the handling of that bike - the stockers were so hard and were probably squared off somewhat to boot.
Again, you might check with someone on a forum for these specific tires, but the 70's are pretty much the standard on 600 sportbikes nowadays. As long as it doesn't rub the fender, you're set. You might need to change the front end height a bit, but that depends on your sensitivity to such things.
