Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire
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.

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.

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!

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. :)
