Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Rear Tires
very good tire
I was able to squeeze out about 5k miles on this tire on my Ducati Diavel. Excellent road grip even when wet

I bought these tires a few weeks ago and have put almost one thousand miles on them, and i must say they are awesome tires, when i take a corner it feels like i am on rails. It does not matter how hard i am throttling through the corner these tires STICK, they are like glue! I will most defiantly be buying these again in the future! I have not ridden in the rain yet so i cannot comment on grip when wet. I only have 1,000 miles on the tires, but they look brand new still.

Fantastic tire, does wear quickly, but grip is amazing
Second time I'm buying Pirelli's for my bike, they are a fantastic sticky tire for street riding. My last one wore out in about 4k miles, but no complaints. Wet weather traction is amazing and I prefer them to the Dunlops I had before.

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 tire is amazing, day i got it installed i had to ride home while it was raining, and normally you want to put about 100 miles on a tire to get the coating off. Well I didn't really have that pleasure to do that so I decided to take it a bit easy at first and to my surprise, even taking off from a red light, the thing never once broke free or loss of traction. Ive also taken it out on some back roads and the thing just sticks like glue no matter what. I will continue to buy pirelli and this tire, just absolutely love the tire. Its helped build a lot of confidence since my last wreck where my back tire lost traction around a turn and i can always guarantee that this tire will stick no matter how low.

This is a great tire, I was looking at the Rosso Corsas but wanted more mileage. The only reason I gave an average rating for tread life is because I only have a little over a 1000 miles on them so far. They grip very well, a good confidence builder to really see what your bike can do. I don't ride in the rain so I didn't give a high mark there either. Pirelli recommends 40 psi rear and 36 front, right now I'm running about 38/34 to allow for expansion and they seem to be doing great. I have a 2008 zzr600 I had to go up some on the front from 120/65/17 to 120/70/17. And it actually seemed to stabilize my bike. Hope this helps anyone looking to buy this tire.

Wonderful Performance Tire
There aren't many options for tires on my Ducati Diavel, and this is the oem tire. The tire gives excellent traction in dry and wet conditions. The only disadvantage is how quickly they wear. I get about 3,000 miles out of a set of these, and I ride them until I see the rubber peeling from the core.
If you have need a very sticky and well handling tire, you can't go wrong with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II.
