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

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
Performance 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 October 28, 2013
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 October 28, 2013
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. October 26, 2013
Amazing, sticky tires that provides confidence, on and off the track. Great in the dry! not the wet. "Dry" race tires'.. October 24, 2013
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. September 13, 2013
Very sticky!!!! I replaced my 2011 Daytonas' stock Super Rossa Corsa V1s with these V2s and am very pleased with their performance. April 23, 2013
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. February 23, 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

MICHAEL P: Get the tire just before your track day. Use it when it's at its best. Leave with no chicken strips. Get more respect when back on the street. ;)
P.S. Fantastic tire.

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

V4's out whats the difference btwn the V2's and the V4's?

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
Reply to chris Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Colton S: I'm assuming you're talking about the "V4's" listed on bike bandit? They're just listed incorrectly, Pirelli still only has a V2 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

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,

Tom N.

geoffrey r: For what it's worth these tires lasted 4500 miles of aggressive street riding on my Panigale! I love them! I'm on my second set with 7500 current miles and plenty of tread left. Jan 27, 2014

A shopper asked: Do these tires come in multiple compounds ? IE Hard versus medium Mar 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jason C: Yes the sc 2 is a harder compound than the sc 1. Great tires. I will never ride any other tire. Give Chris at CT racing in California a csll. He can advise u all about Pirelli's. Good luck Mar 27, 2014
Reply to Jason Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Charles C: The street tire, only one compound mix, the DOT race tire comes in soft, medium, and firm. S0, S1, S2. Race DOT tire available from pirielli track service, I use CT Racing Mar 27, 2014

A shopper asked: what is the biggest size tire that will fit on my 2003 gsxr 750? Mar 7, 2014
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 :)
