Enjoying the handle The Pirelli Diablo's were recommended to me on separate occasions from friends who are both avid semi-pro riders. Their rec has not disappointed: much improved grip from previous tires - I have more security especially in rainier weather :) April 6, 2015
Amazing grip Amazing tire, haven't got chance to ride it that hardcore since Minnesota weather is unpredictable but I am sure I will leave another review. But overall I like it. March 30, 2015
Sticky icky The stock tire was fine but the pirelli is on a different tier. Softer composite makes for better grip and easier turns in the lean. Though it won't last forever being soft composite, the performance is worth it. March 23, 2015
Great Tire! Put this tire on my bike and it was a difference like night and day! Will be getting the front tire soon. I love the look on it too. March 23, 2015
Love this product I recommend this tire for any bike. Bought it for my ninja 250 and boy it rides a lot better. March 21, 2015
Grippy Using these tires on my 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300. Vast improvement over the stock tires. Dual compound is great for a combination of commuting and spirited riding. I can't comment on tread life yet, as I've only had them for a few hundred miles so far. I can't comment on wet traction either, as I live in Southern California. March 16, 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
Great tire I've only had the Diablo Rosso 2's on my ninja 300 for a couple hundred miles now but can already feel the difference. I feel more confident in turns than with the oem road runner's. I do mostly commuting and a lil twisties on the weekend so we'll see how the tread life holds up. One of the big reasons I bought this tire was because it is a dual compound tire. Supposedly longer life in the middle and sticky on the outside for better grip in cornering. February 23, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Jimmy A: It has come the time to replace tires on my 2013 Ducati Monster 696ABS. I've turned to my tried and trusted, Revzilla for my most important purchase yet. Apr 18, 2015
Eric F: "For my 2009 Aprilia Dorsoduro, Good tire for and wet conditions. Better wear than the Pirelli Corsa " Apr 15, 2015
Tim S: Great reviews and highly recommended by all riders. Plus, hitting the track soon. Apr 13, 2015
T A: My Bridgestone BT-003 Battle-axes only lasted 1500 miles without burnouts and vaguely correct tire pressure. I can't be changing two tires for every oil change so I decided to go with these tires on my supermoto in hopes they lasted a bit longer. Only time will tell. I hope they're still as grippy. Apr 8, 2015
D G: Very sticky tire. Heard great things about it and decided to get it. Feb 25, 2015

Brian A: My Tuono and I wasted its stock Diablo Corsa's in 1,000 miles of street riding. The Corsa's are an excellent track/street tire and they rode and wore great till the end, but I can't afford new rubber every 1,000 miles. So I will try the Rosso II's this time around, which yielded about 2,500 on my previous bike (a 1200 Multi), I'm hoping to carry my same pace and get at least 2K from the II's on the Tuono. Dec 28, 2014
Martin J: highly recommended tire Dec 24, 2014
william f: To upgrade the tires that came on my 2014 Zero SR. These tires perform beautifully on twisty mountain roads like the Angeles Crest Highway in So. Cal.

juan m i: Great tires for GS1200Lc I have ridden Diablos for a while, you'll get decent mileage out of it thus is not a very lasting tire but if you're on the sportier side rather than the touring side, this is the perfect choice! Oct 21, 2014

Gilbert H: i heard great reviews from almost every kawasaki forum out there, super stoked to get them Jul 14, 2014

Louie A: hey jose,
im not sure if you have enough clearance to put that size on you bike. the best person the asked woulld be your local dealer and they should know if it would fit without rubbing your swingarm. i have a few friend that ride 600 and 750 gsxr and they where able to go from a 180 to a 190.... all i can say is this is a great tire with excellent traction. i give this tire TWO BIG THUMBS UP!!

Jimmy V: It'll fit. Will be a bit pinched. No reason to go that wide unless all you are really interested in is the look of a wider tire in the rear. Jan 14, 2014
Reply to Jimmy Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Clinton B: Lets say no. I did the same thing on my GS500E. I put a 150 on the rear where a 140 should have been. The tire for one was almost impossible to get on, and then the tread split in the groves in a couple months from being stressed so much. The profile becomes squeezed and more round than you can even use on the bike. You'll never get to the edge of the tire before your bike touches down and it'll wear weird. All you're doing when going wider without getting a wider rim that fits the tire is adding weight to your bike. It's not a bigger contact patch like you might think when the tire is squeezed like that. A 140 is more than fine for the power on a Ninja 250. Look at the Moto 3 GP bikes, they run 120's in the rear. Why? because they're better, lighter and will perform better with the HP of those bikes, which is actually a little more than your 250. Long story short, the 140mm would be best. You can upgrade the tire with a better tire of the same size. Oct 13, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi I own a ninja 300, I'll putting a power commander, full yoshimura exhaust with k&n filter and njk spark plug, should add at least 15hp. Equal to KTM rc 390. Should I get a one 150 back tire for the added horse power? Will it fit on the rim? There's more than enough space between the swing arms but I'm worried if the rim is big enough. Feb 26, 2015

A shopper asked: 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? Sep 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard S: I've not run either the Rosso Corsa or Angel GT, so I can't compare those for you. I did run the Rosso II on the back of my thruxton (160/60-17) for roughly 4500 miles, which included 2 track days, before running out of tread. All the grip I needed at the track and good street manners. It has a round profile, so I would touch down hard parts before approaching the edge of the rubber. As your bike is significantly more powerful and heavier than mine, I'd imagine that you'd want something with a bit harder center compound to keep from eating up this tire in a season. YMMV, --Rich Oct 1, 2014
Reply to Richard Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Dirk B: 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. Oct 1, 2014

A shopper asked: How many miles do you get out of this tire?

How do the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2's compare to the Pilot Road's in terms of traction and wet/cold weather performance?

I am caught between sport and sport touring, but I don't go to the track and ride only 2k miles per year (90% is mostly all weather commuting and the remaining 10% is occasional weekend twisty trips).

Duran G: I've never used the Pilot Road tires, but I can comment on the traction and stability of these.

They're great!
I try to avoid rainy days, but living in center city I see lots of things on the roads that make me wary, but I've never had an instance where the tires lost traction or didn't act as I wanted them too.

They're worth the money, imho.

Paul32: No, the widest you can go on the 600RR is a 200/50/17ZR. The swingarm is not wide enough to fit the tire correctly. There are quite a few sites that sell wider swingarms at a decent price. Look around first and see what you think. I own the same bike btw. Feb 26, 2012

RevZilla: The stock rear tire size for a 2006 Honda CBR600RR is 180/55/ZR17. Some track riders recommend increasing to a 190/55/ZR17, but that seems to be the limit. We cannot comment on fitting any tire other than than those recommended by the manufacturer. May 3, 2012
