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.

Amazing Stick
Have the thought in the back of your head that your stock tires just don't feel sticky enough?

Ever thought that maybe you should upgrade and maybe you'll feel better about the ride?

Well, look no further.

After looking at countless reviews for these tires, I was finally forced to buy some new ones, and boy did I pick the right ones.
These tires are ridiculously grippy. I literally feel like the ride has changed for me because of how much grip I feel I have. I feel much more confident about taking turns and corners with these bad boys now. I absolutely love these tires. Definitely recommend.

Best Non-Track Sportbike Tire
I went through 2 sets of these tires on my Ninja 250, both sets got atleast 6-8000 miles before needing to be replaced

These are very soft tires, but they handle very well in all conditions. Very progressive turning feel, you don't fall into corners, you glide in and out.

You will not be disappointed...

Short life, superb grip!
I ride a lot...and I mean a lot. I bought my current bike last year brand new with 0 miles on it. I now have 46,979 miles on it. That's not a typo.

I commute to work, and I hit the mountain hard.

For the mountain, these are by far the best tires I've used. The grip is INSANE. I have so much more confidence with these tires.

I even got caught up in a monsoon on my way home from work a couple of times, and I was still able to hold 90 with no problem.

The only downside is the mileage. I only got 3,300 miles out of these suckers. If you're looking for a good commuting tire that will get good mileage, I would recommend the Michelin Pilot Road GT 4's. They are my favorite for longevity.

I just ordered another rear Rosso II from RevZilla yesterday afternoon, and it was delivered this morning at 1000!

Best upgrade to my 250
These tires were the best upgrade i did to my 250. The difference was night and day. Just riding back from the shop the bike felt different. In a great way. If you bike comes with some cold hard cheap commuter tire, the upgrade to these is worth it. Hands down.

This new tyre from Pirelli is a winner! Awesome grip and stability. Great on the rain and at the limits. One of the best bang for the buck on motorcycle tyres. All the premium performance and quality and none of the crazy price.

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.

What is the weight for this tire in 180/55?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2015
I have a ninja 300 and was thinking about getting a stickier tire. What do you guys think the life would be on this tire with my bike?
A S on Apr 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have these on my ninja 300 and i have bur hard miles on them. It has been a fantastic tire on the ninja 300. It really helped be get the most out of this bike. Right now i have about 5k miles on the tire and might be bale to squeak out another 1k.
Does anyone here use these tires for track days. I ride pretty quick. Not expert, but a fast paced intermediate.
Do they stick well?
Orange Crush on May 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: depends on your bike. If you have an ultra lightweigt bike such as a Ninja 250, Ninja 300, CBR 250, CBR 300, KTM 390. The Rosso II is a solid setup. However if you ride a 600 or 1000 for trackdays (and your pace is truly one of the faster intermediates), I would recommend the Diablo Supercorsa SP hands down as a solid trackday tire without having to worry about tire warmers
Hi,
I need help to choice a rear tire for my 2013 Triumph street triple abs, the OEM tire is a Pirelli Diablo Corsa, but this tire give me 5500 miles on rear position front is like new, also The tire is like new on the sides but in the middle is dead now, so I need a tire with a hard compound in the center with out loos performance. Can you please help me to pick the right choice ?
Thank you.
A shopper on Jan 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi

I used this tires. Very good tires and i used it 7000 km.The Corsa also is good but for track racing.I used this tires for track. But if you used on road for long way you need choise the Rosso 2.

The Diablo Corsa 70 % side 30 % middle
The Diablo Rosso 2 50 % side 50 % middle
I have the new ninja 300, 2013, NON ABS.
Whats the widest I can go with these wheels in the REAR and FRONT?
I would like to get better wheels....the stock wheels are def not as stable as I would want them to be.
Minsu N on Dec 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The widest you can go for the rear is the 150 profile. Having tried both a 140 rear and a 150 rear, I much prefer the 140. The front you can do a 120 front but the stock size is a 110. As for your stability issues, I really don't think it has to do with your wheels. It could be something else.
Is this tire tubeless?
Fernando M on Oct 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these motorcycle tires are tubeless.
I ride a Moto Guzzi Griso 8v 1100 and I have an Angel GT Pirelli on the front and I'm running Motul 300v oil, so I was wondering which rear tire combo is optimal for mainly street and some 1-300 mile touring rides. Between the Diablo Rosso II, Diablo Rosso Corsa and the Angel GT rear tire?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you are going to do touring buy the Angel GT they have a good life span while giving excellent grip. Definitely dont buy the Corsa unless you are going to the track and are jn the expert class otherwise they wear very quickly. Rosso II are in the middle of these two tires but more traction then the angels but less life.
Does this tyre fit on a 2012 Honda cbr250r ABS?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't think this is the size you need for your 250, ( too wide) but if you look at your sidewall it'll tell you the size that's on your bike now, and you can then order the correct one for your bike.
How do you measure wear on the rear tire? There is no tread that cuts through the center.
Michael R on Jun 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't have the tires anymore, but i think the thread did reach into the center just enough to estimate the life of the very center. I'd just check the wear indicators closest to the center to see how it's shaping up. Remember that the center is harder and check for squaring. If the sides seem to have good life but the tire looks squared, you might have worn the center out pretty well. if the sides seem worn but the tire is squared, then MAYBE the center still has life. Worn sides on a smooth, round tire means all is worn. If I remember correctly, a small amount of thread makes it into the center, check how that edge compares to the rest of the groove. If possible, consider the age and usage of the tire during the estimation. Although I suppose running this tire with excessively high pressure could make it so you don't ride on the cuts at all. Good luck.
Can these tires be mounted on a rim with spokes? Which requires a tube...or are they for tubeless rims? Want to put these on my drz400sm
Josh B on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tubeless
