Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Front Tire
Ducati/Aprilia use this as OEM tire for a reason...it's awesome!
This is probably the best 'stock' tire you can get if you plan on using your sportbike at the track most of the time. It has awesome grip and is very stable/predictable...feels like a race tire. If you don't take bike to track, probably not worth the extra $, but if you do it's definitely worth it.

Pretty much infinite grip
Excellent track day tire. On a warm day, they heat up in a lap or two and stay sticky for the entire session. On the occasional commute to work, they're totally fine, too. Definitely not recommended for wet weather riding, though.
The only negative? I have no idea what it feels like to lose traction anymore.

Simply the Best…
Price? Expensive. Worth it? Absolutely. The grip, turn-in feel and confidence these tires give you will justify the price. I only get about 2500 miles out of the front and rear, but I keep buying them. There isn't much rain in SoCal, so I don't have to worry about the wet traction. For an aggressive ride who loves the canyons and mountains, these are your tires. If you're just a commuter sticking to the highways they might be overkill. Save the money on frame sliders and get something that will help PREVENT you from going down.

Great STREET Tire
I ran these tires at the Track (Motorsport Ranch Houston) yesterday and my experience was not as good as I wanted. For the first half of the day as I was ramping up to faster speeds, the tires did really well. In the afternoon (75 degrees), I used tire warmers and ran them really hard. Probably around 1:50 lap times. On several turns where I would lean pretty low and accelerate hard out of the turn, the tires started melting right out from under me. During those times, my back end was sliding all over the place. Granted, I was dragging knee's and going really fast on a street tire.
All in all though, I think it is an awesome street tire, but don't plan on racing with this tire or it will hold you back.

Tons of grip
Great performing tire on my Panigale. Pricey and fast wearing but that's the cost of premium performance

I was very happy with the original version, but figured they do upgrades for a reason..
Did my first trackdays with the V2 last weekend and was very pleased with them. It's clear the profile on the front is different, b/c I was definitely leaning in further than I ever had, but the tire wear doesn't show as close to the edge as on the old ones. Extra margin of safety?
The rear tire seemed to wear the same, right to the very edge.
I buy the Supercorsas b/c tests show they aren't finicky about warm-up. I don't want to mess with tire warmers at this point, and with these tires, I don't have to. I take a 75% lap and then go.

Great grip, short tread life...
Love the grip and feel of these tires.. But you're gonna have to sacrifice longevity.. that's the tradeoff...

Expensive but worth it.
These came oem on my Panigale and lasted me 7k miles. I looked at other options but the super corsa is truly a great tire for high performance on the street and track.
