Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP V2 Rear Tire
Better know what you're getting
As long as you understand that what you are getting in a dry weather ONLY, track/street tire you won't be disappointed. It provides both fantastic grip and feel at full lean angle, especially from the rear tire. I like my front tire to have a little less flex in the sidewall but that is a personal preference because the tire had fantastic edge grip and bite. Now if you're on the street and it rains.....life is going to suck for a while. The tire is basically as close as you can get to a slick while still being street legal. There is 0 wet weather traction and the rear end will wiggle a lot under you searching for traction in the rain.

Great Track Rubber
1st, this is on my Triumph Daytona 675R 14' (standard tire)
This tire is amazing on dry surface, the grip is great.
It truly gives you confidence on leans. Warms up very very quickly. Leans perfectly.
I DO NOT recommend this tire for those who want to commute on them. The reason is that these are not cost effective tires for a commute. They are not made for rain, the grooves do not give you the safety level required to ride on rain.
Look into the "Rossa Corsa" tire if you want to save 100 USD on the set, + adding 500-1000 extra miles + better rain grip. You will just lose on tight tight learn turns, and fast sticky feel.

Who ever buys this tire probably know what they are getting, Superbike grip, wears extremely quick and not good in wet. Just keep an eye on tire pressure or you have buy a new tire very quickly.

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.
