Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire
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.

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.

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

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!

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.
