Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire
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. :)

My 1199 performs like it's glued to the street. Stickiest street tire I've used. Pricey though and have 600 miles on it and wear indicators are showing already. I'll buy another

Excellent performance not so bad in the rain
Tires are great with grip,confidence tires gave me was amazing lots of feed back from the tire in all conditions.not bad in the rain very good feel at any lean angle closing in on 3k hard riding miles on tires and I would say I'm just about at 50% life left tires are amazing if you are looking for great grip and confidence building recommend these to everybody

Tire warmers not needed
I bought this tire exclusively for track days due to reviews that said it gave excellent grip without warmers and without substantial warmup on the track. I agree with this assessment, at least at my skill level (Intermediate)
These perform so well it would be difficult to get me to try anything else.

Amazing, sticky tires that provides confidence, on and off the track.
Great in the dry! not the wet. "Dry" race tires'..

Best high performance road tire
For aggressive riding on the road and the track this is simply the best tire you can buy. I can't say band for you buck is great considering the Dunlop Q3 is over 100 dollars cheaper and as good as this tire is it's not 100 bucks better than anything. With that being said, for aggressive riding there just isn't a more confidence inspiring tire on the market, the grip is out of this world in dry conditions. Wet traction.. well just hope you don't get caught in the rain, tread life is decent it just depends on our hard you ride and how aggressive you are on the throttle. Overall I love this tire and can't say enough about it.

I replaced my 2011 Daytonas' stock Super Rossa Corsa V1s with these V2s and am very pleased with their performance.

A fabulous tire on the Panigale; perfect on dry roads; satisfactory on damp roads
These are OEM equipment on my Ducati Panigale 1199. My first set lasted 3,000 miles, although that includes 2,500 miles of break-in. When I needed a replacement set I was unable to get the version 2 (not available then) and so I replaced them with the previous version of SP, which are almost worn out in half the milage. The V2 SPs stick like glue and are a great tire for fast road riding in dry weather.
