Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire

Original Equipment on the Ducati Panigale, the new SP Version 2 Diablo Supercorsa features the same tread design used in the 2012 World Superstock 1000 championship. High modulus fiber carcass offers a lower deformation ratio and makes the entire structure stiffer to allow a better synergy between compounds and tire carcass. Single Element Tread Pattern permits a 24% larger slick shoulder area (vs. previous Diablo Supercorsa), increasing contact area and grip and wear regularity. New compounds offer great balance of mileage and grip in an ultra-high-performance product. Rear tire uses Pirelli's patented EPT (enhanced patch technology) matched with a tri-zone compound that helps optimize the contact patch for improved grip and handling. 


  • Single Groove Technology greatly improves wear
  • Bi-Compound rear tire with slick shoulder for racing-like performance
  • WSBK derived materials and structure for increased agility and intuitive handling
  • Innovating and exclusive Pirelli-patented high-modulus carcass Lyocel fiber
  • Tire profile features variable geometry from the center to the shoulders for an increase in contact patch and quicker entry into turns
  • Tire carcass has variable density from center to the shoulders to provide maximum linearity and stability through turns and to maintain optimal trajectory
  • TL (tubeless)
  • (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ MPH
  • 200/55-17 is OE for Ducati 1199 Panigale

Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire 4.9 5 15 15
Hope to ride with these soon. I hear great things!!!!! Bought these for my 2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848 which comes with a 180/60 rear. Apparently putting a different size rear (ie: 180/55) can screw with the traction control. Although I wouldn't mind shutting off the traction control, I like keeping the bike as it came. I was happy with the Pirellis that came with the bike Diablo Rosso Corsa and honestly from the reviews I'v read and my Dad giving them 2 thumbs up while he had them on 1199R, I had to try them. I don't expect insanely good tread life because it is essentially a race tire for the street. In terms of price they were a bit cheaper than the also highly recommended Michelin Supersports. It was a toss up except for the tire size issue. Pirelli is the only manufacturer I found to carry a 180/60. That pretty much did it for me. This day in age it is pretty had to go wrong with a tire, considering how good all the top offerings from the big brands are. March 20, 2015
Stop Worrying, your Ducati 848 EVO loves the SP V2 Got my tires within two business days of ordering. Having used the OEM SP on my Ducati 848 EVO and the excellent SC2 I am thrilled to again be using the benchmark in track tires. For those who have been trying to find out online, the SP V2 is Made in Germany, just like the SC variant, so you are definitely getting the very best manufacturing available. Thanks REVZILLA for making these tires so available and affordable. February 24, 2015
Definitely recommend these tires to anyone on any bike! I bought a set of these SP V2 for my bike and I know they say you should scrub in your tires first before going hard on them but these tires felt so great that I had confidence in ripping them around corners without any second thoughts! Heated up fast just the way I like them! January 5, 2015
Excellent high performance tire I decided to purchase the new V2 set this summer. After all, I had to replace my old V1 (front & rear tire). The Diablo Supercorsa SP/SC tires have always been on top when it comes to performance but I've experienced some issues regarding tread life. The V1 would wear pretty quickly, especially after cornering at high speed. Pirelli said the V2 would improve on durability as well as offer greater grip capabilities. Now my opinion. Well, I can definitely say Pirelli improved the new version. It offers way better grip and feedback. It feels like your completely glued to the pavement, especially after they've warmed up a bit. They also stick very well on colder pavement during night-time. Don't even think about going out with these when it rains because they offer zero grip in the wet. I learned that the hard way. The tread life has improved but not dramatically. I did some high-speed runs and I could already see some tear offs, but they still wear less and hold together better than the previous V1 model. Overall, I would highly recommend the V2 to anyone looking for great performance tires. July 20, 2014
This tire is awesome Warms up quick, awesome for the streets and grippy for the track, there's a race version that looks similar to this using stickier compound but it takes longer to heat up so not recommended for the streets. June 30, 2014
great tires these tires have exceptional grip at lean with great feedback.have tried all brands and these tires are unbeatable on the street.only downfall is i only get 800 to 1000 miles out of a set on the street but i would sacrifice tread wear for ultimate traction any day!!! they are definitely the best tires available in my opinion June 2, 2014
Excellent tire from an excellent website Not only is the tire great, Eric at Revzilla matched a lower price I found on another website (by almost 40$). Still got the tire shipped free as well and had ZERO hassle to boot. Couldn't be happier. Wish more businesses ran their companies like Revzilla! May 5, 2014
Love 2.0 I haven't had too much time in the wet but, the wet traction seems to be at least on-par with the V1s. I rated the V2s a solid 3/5 only for the fact that this a DOT-legal track tire and not an all weather ADV touring tire. This same reasoning is exactly the same for a 5/5 for dry grip, it's not a race slick. I bought the V2s based on the tread life of the V1. For all it is and isn't, the tread life is good. The first impression of this tire wasn't love at first sight--the previous pair of tires were the previous version of the Supercorsa SP--it was however love on the second ride. The first ride from where my bikes are serviced is basically just a quick highway jaunt to scuff them up and get ready for a proper break-in...i.e. doesn't count. The first proper ride, about 70 miles of backroads/state highways, was far more pleasurable than I was expecting. The V2s had excellent grip, feel, and acceleration/deceleration response; even better than my late tires (R.I.P.). The V2s also appeared to allow my Ducati to settle-in at a lower speed, firming the turn-in and instilling even greater confidence in a particularly fun double-apex...excellence. You guessed it; I trail brake. :) March 24, 2014

I reviewed several tires but I decide this tire is best grip on the road.
Jan 13, 2015
Jorge J: I have tried many brands and compounds but these are almost as good as the SCâ??s and with a little more mileage, I only use them on Track days. Excellent performance that It can be trust. Nov 11, 2014
A S: BEST high-performance street tire currently available. I ride this tire in the canyons and can comfortably lean the bike with supreme confidence all the way to the edge of the rubber without issue! They don't last long (2,500 miles front and 1,200 miles rear). I always wear the sides out before the middle but I mostly just ride mountain/canyon roads. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tire! It is OEM on Ducati 1199 and Aprilia RSV4. I run 32 PSI front and 29 PSI rear. Nov 5, 2014
Ed V: Excellent tire that works well on track or road. Sep 17, 2014
jeremy t: track time! Jul 28, 2014
C H: Love the SuperCorsa SP, hoping the V2 is better. Jun 30, 2014
Tyler E: Excellent tire; OEM equipment on my 1199. Only downside is that they wear quickly and are overpriced. Jun 27, 2014
David R: OEM replacement for my BMW HP4. Jun 7, 2014
PAUL L: It's the newer version of the OEM tires that came on my 2013 Triumph 675.
The OEM lasted for 9000 miles on long highway runs before a noticeable center line and squaring was visible.
I've read hard core canyon riders get about 3000 miles on them.

I.M.O. the performance of these tires will contribute to the safety of riding especially on dry Southern Cali streets.
The prices on Revzilla is over 30% CHEAPER than my local dealer!
It's a no brainer...buy it.

A shopper asked: I have a 2014 Ducati Hypermotard that came with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP. At 1,300 miles the rear is shot (pass the wear bars on both sides, center looks great.) and the front not far behind in side wear. My questions: 1. Is the V2 a later generation than my stock SP as I can not find any kind of V marking on my SP's? 2. If the V2's are a later generation, can I expect any more life than my stock SP's ? I love the tire but going to go broke replacing every 1300 miles. Many thanks for your help. Jeff Aug 8, 2014

Jason K: Yes, the "V2" is a later generation than a tire without any "v" on it (the V2 says V2 on it). As far as I know the only change is the tread pattern, they made a DOT tire with even less grooves.

The less grooves will help tire life a little, but honestly this is a sub-2k mile tire when ridden hard, and the V2 isn't going to change that much.

I've switched now to the Rosso Corsas on my HP4 which are just as grippy in the corners, and the front actually heats up quicker than the SP V2 front, so I'm very happy. I can't speak about tire life yet, but I can say definitely that there's less "rippling" of the tire on a hard run, so I'm guessing that it's wearing less.

Daron F: I can't tell you how they wear as I have not installed them yet. However, the Revzilla customer service guy I talked to told me the V2 is is the updated version of the Supercorsa. Rubbing the rear V2 tire with my thumb, it feels a good deal more sticky than the center tread. The V2 tread design is different than its predecessor. IDK if the compounds have changed. Sounds like you corner very hard. IMO, if you find a tire that wears evenly across the whole tread. it probably wont suit your riding style. Aug 8, 2014

Mark B: The V2 is a later version. Good looking tire, but I would not expect additional wear. Have replaced my Pirellis with Dunlop Q3s on two bikes ...a Triumph Speed Triple and MV Agusta Brutale ...for inadequate street life. Don't get me wrong, the grip was quite good, and for track duty I would recommend them. But for the lower price, similar performance, and way better life, I prefer the Dunlops. I was very disappointed with how quickly the Pirellis wore out. Aug 8, 2014

Walter G asked: I don't know if my first two questions made it but I am looking for a tire that I can use on and off the track? I ride a zx14 and is going to attend a track class in the near future. Dec 7, 2013

Mark B: This tire is an excellent choice for your intended use...as is Dunlop Sportmax Q3, Bridgestone Hypersport S20, and Michelin Power Series (2CT or 3). Others as well I'm sure, but I have experience with these and can state with confidence all are fantastic for track and aggressive street riding. I have plenty of laps on the Pirellis and found grip and feedback to be quite good. Enjoy the track experience. Dec 8, 2013

Thomas N: Walter G,

They are fantastic tires. I have them on my 1199 Panigale and I have had nothing but a great experience. They are soft, they warm up fast, and they do really well in the wet. Good feel in hot or cold temperatures too. I ride in as low as the 30's and 40's and they have been great throughout. The only downside is that they do wear quickly, and they pick up anything and everything on the road like nails and glass.

On the track, they will be fantastic. I haven't been on the track just yet, but next year I plan on it, and a fresh set will be on the bike.

Be safe out there, and have fun!

Harold S: Hi Walte
Hope this helps I have a BMW HP4 and have just completed the California superbike school Level 4 the tyres worked well to the very edge and where very predictable with a high level of stability. They gave absolute confidence
mileage can't really say how good they may be on the road as I have only used them on the track. If this is your first time at school they are more than sufficient but bear in mind my BMW has a lot of electronic rider aids and would have saved me if I was to aggressive.
All the best and good luck with your first track class

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gabriel M: I wasn't aware that there was a V4 version out but if you want a piece of mind when you ride the v2's will deliver. These tires are by far the best tires I've had, although they don't last very long they get warm up fast and they grip amazingly. I highly recommend the v2's if you do a lot of dry weather riding but not if ride in the rain. Apr 18, 2014

chris s: As far as I know there is only v1 and v2 I googled it and some bikebandit place has v4's...but in the description is says v2 so I think its a typo verry little diff in v1 and v2 but both are amazing tires and I only ride these Apr 18, 2014

Matt L asked: Should these get better or worse tread life than Q3's? I'm down to the side wear bars on Q3's after 2,000 miles running 32f/30r psi. Based on that, what could I expect out of these at the same pressures? Jan 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas N: Tire life is pretty short on these tires, as has been my experience thus far. I got about 6500 miles on my front, and around 3000 on my first rear tire. I'm just switching my front tire out now, and by the end of this summer coming up I will probably get a new rear.

With all that being said, I will continue to purchase these tires. They are super sticky, and warm up very quickly. Grip and feel are fantastic as well. I've become very comfortable and confident on these tires, and unless something better comes my way, I will continue to purchase these.

I hope this helps,

A S asked: Hi,

What is the difference between this tire and the DSC sc? Which would be better for track use only.

Also I heard if you rear tire size is 180/55 17 you can fit a 180/60 17 with this tire, is that true?

Aug 13, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Tom E: I've never used the DSC SC, but I've been told by the local Ducati shop, from well experienced riders, that it's a better track tire. Faster warm up primarliy. Supercorsa SP V2 works well obviously also, but for just track use, I'd try the DSC SC.

Using a 60 series vice 55 depends on the bike. Usually width is the limiting factor. I'd check with someone who has tried it on your particular bike.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
chris s: First of all don't take this personal..its just funny a gsxr rider wants to throw the biggest tire possible on his bike...the better question should be "what size of rear tire does my gsxr take" this should do with safty..and also your rim/wheel... the one you have on now buy the same size...wait..the one that came with the bike..buy the same size. this should be the size to get
Front tyre dimensions: 120/70-17
Rear tyre dimensions: 180/55-17

anything else should be for a show bike only..and this aint no show bike or not at all. JMO

again I don't like seeing ignorant riders killing themselves because they are uninformed or are trying to "look cool"

Be safe keep your rubber roadside not highside!
If you want a bigger tire I suggest buying a bike that comes with one :)
