Great purchase I bought these shoes for my ninja 250 and they perform sick! January 26, 2015
Thoroughly impressive tread life I've put over 8000 miles on a set of Rosso II tires on my Ducati 748. I was impressed with the handling and grip from day 1. I've used these tires for mostly sport touring, so I can't say how they perform on the track. But they grip confidently on twisty roads and the tread wear is fairly even. I've not ridden in the rain, so I can't say how they do in wet conditions. But 8000+ miles! January 22, 2015
Pretty solid tire I've been riding on these tires for quite some time now. In all types of conditions and have no bad things to say. Even when it was pouring down rain they performed very well. If you are looking for a tire with good grip and long life chose these. January 8, 2015
Great street tire I ride a 07 sv650, which is my only form of transportation and therefore use all the time for various reasons. I'm not giving this a perfect score because this is the first "high end" tires i have used, which means i can't really compare them to anything else. However, these tires are definitively better than other random tires i have used. I have used a set of rosso ii's for about 20k miles at the time, despite having gone through a lot of straights on the interstate, the tires have worn quite evenly. This may be because of the harder compound on the center. The front tire does seem ever so slightly more worn on the middle though. On twisties, the tires feel very planted on the road, given good conditions. Heck, it feels like i may be on a rail at times, if i need to brake during the turn, there's not much hesitation. These tires have also done well during hard acceleration and braking. (thankfully) Heck, i haven't been able to spin the tire on anything but dirt, maybe i'm just not trying hard enough. On the rain, these tires have fared quite well, obviously you will need to tone down your riding on the rain either way, but i haven't felt scared when riding on the rain with these tires. They did great. The only time i had a small slide on the street was when turning over large a "keep clear" painting on the intersection, during rain. I love these tires and will most likely use them again in the future. December 30, 2014
Great product Good grip, good traction, reasonable price and durability. November 30, 2014
Excellent sport tire This tire is phenomenal. It has fantastic dry grip and its steeper profile allows you to flick your bike into corners quicker than with other tires. This tire really inspires confidence when leaning over to its edges on the twisties. I've only ridden them in the rain once and they felt fine, but I didn't push it enough to rate the wet traction. The one negative is that the tread life isn't great, which is to be expected from a soft compound sport tire with lots of grip. Expect to get between 4k miles and 6k miles out of the rear, more out of the front but that number is TBD for mine. If you're going to be commuting a lot, try a dual compound sport touring tire. For aggressive riding in the twisties or at the track, this tire can't be beat. September 29, 2014
Good grip Second rear tire on the 1100evo Monster 2013, great grip got about 4000 mi out of factory tire don't expect much more out this one, good tire. November 10, 2014
Confident ride for the price No need to spend more than this on a sport tire. This tire will do everything you ask of it. November 3, 2014

Gilbert H: i heard great reviews from almost every kawasaki forum out there, super stoked to get them Jul 14, 2014
John R: These are widely recommended as the best upgrade from the stock tires on the ninja 300. They are much stickier than the stock tires, which are geared more towards a long tread life than going fast in the twisties. Jun 29, 2014

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
Sam G: I needed tires for my 2001 cbr 600 f4i. Reviews on Revzilla praise it's grip and the price is right so Diablo it is! Mar 2, 2014
Richard S: Best tire for the money. I ordered front and back tires and received them in two days!! Feb 26, 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

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

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.
