Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Front Tires
Very nice looking, very stable, and has more grip than I have skills, so it's a perfect 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
