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

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.

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.

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 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!

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.

Great Track Day Tire
I run this on my 2012 Triumph Daytona 675r and the traction is excellent. Telemetry shows lean angles over 50 degrees and these things hold firm. Once you find a tire you trust you stick with it. This will be my go to until I invest in tire warmers and start running slicks.

Awesome tire
I've already put 1500 miles on these bad boys and they still look new with lots of thread, I've also driven in harsh rain with these tires and no problem getting around to my destination, I did have to put my 1199 ducati in wet mode because in sport mode it was slipping but as soon as I put it in wet mode it gripped the watery roads nicely. It's a good tire and they also warm up very quickly as well IG:cchav8z

Val L on Apr 29, 2016
Tire came standard on the 2016 Aprilia Tuono RF. Some how I have 5500 miles on this tire (front is worn to wear indicators) and there is still room to go. I expect this isn't normal so I'm not going to assume this will be the case with the new tire. I am replacing the tire because it has a very small leak and instead of repairing I'm replacing along with the front
This tire has been great for the twisty back roads (50mph on up) and long mountain passes in dry conditions.

great traction control and good tread life. I did blister a little the second track day but i did not have tire warmers and this was on a '14 CBR10RR SP

Peter K on Apr 4, 2016
Great street and track tire. They are expensive and wear fast, so I would not use them purely for street riding. I've now upgraded to Pirelli racing slicks which are outstanding for wear and traction on the track. I've got the regular Pirelli Corsa's on my bike for street use during the non-track season for street use.
Jonathan G on Feb 2, 2016
Want to try them I have used the Diablo Rosso II, got about 3000 miles out of them, moved to Diablo Rosso Corsa and loved them for street and track. Only got 1500 Miles out of them I want to try these to see if my performance improves.

I have tried many brands and compounds but these are almost as good as the SCâ??s and with a little more mileage, I only use them on Track days. Excellent performance that It can be trust.

BEST high-performance street tire currently available. I ride this tire in the canyons and can comfortably lean the bike with supreme confidence all the way to the edge of the rubber without issue! They don't last long (2,500 miles front and 1,200 miles rear). I always wear the sides out before the middle but I mostly just ride mountain/canyon roads. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tire! It is OEM on Ducati 1199 and Aprilia RSV4. I run 32 PSI front and 29 PSI rear.

David R on Jun 7, 2014
It's the newer version of the OEM tires that came on my 2013 Triumph 675.
The OEM lasted for 9000 miles on long highway runs before a noticeable center line and squaring was visible.
I've read hard core canyon riders get about 3000 miles on them.

I.M.O. the performance of these tires will contribute to the safety of riding especially on dry Southern Cali streets.
The prices on Revzilla is over 30% CHEAPER than my local dealer!
It's a no brainer...buy it.

what is the biggest size tire that will fit on my 2003 gsxr 750?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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 :)
what is the recommended tire pressure for the supercorsa on the track?
charles v on May 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: if you go to the Pirelli website it will tell you the manufacturer recommended top and bottom range for cold and hot pressure. I use them in the track with warmers. The recommended pressure for the rear tire is30-26 psi. On a hot day with good weather conditions I use 26psi but on a colder day I'll increase to 27-28psi because I don't have the skill level to keep the tire constantly warm and work it hard constantly on a cold day. Also increasing the pressure will give you more stability and save the tire life. At 26 you have more contact patch and grip.
I have a 2014 Ducati Hypermotard that came with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP. At 1,300 miles the rear is shot (pass the wear bars on both sides, center looks great.) and the front not far behind in side wear. My questions: 1. Is the V2 a later generation than my stock SP as I can not find any kind of V marking on my SP's? 2. If the V2's are a later generation, can I expect any more life than my stock SP's ? I love the tire but going to go broke replacing every 1300 miles. Many thanks for your help. Jeff
A shopper on Aug 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the "V2" is a later generation than a tire without any "v" on it (the V2 says V2 on it). As far as I know the only change is the tread pattern, they made a DOT tire with even less grooves.

The less grooves will help tire life a little, but honestly this is a sub-2k mile tire when ridden hard, and the V2 isn't going to change that much.

I've switched now to the Rosso Corsas on my HP4 which are just as grippy in the corners, and the front actually heats up quicker than the SP V2 front, so I'm very happy. I can't speak about tire life yet, but I can say definitely that there's less "rippling" of the tire on a hard run, so I'm guessing that it's wearing less.
I don't know if my first two questions made it but I am looking for a tire that I can use on and off the track? I ride a zx14 and is going to attend a track class in the near future.
Walter G on Dec 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.

V4's out whats the difference btwn the V2's and the V4's?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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?
Matt L on Jan 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I have a DUNLOP GPA on the front and was wondering how important it is to have matching tire sets? Could I run a Dunlop GPA on the front and this Pirelli Supercorsa on the rear without any issues for track riding?

DYLAN T on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have only ride this tires front and rear at same time,...
most-Excellent -glued grip,
i can say to you that there is no better tire for track/road use than these.
But combining different tires i cannot tell about the profiles match or not.
Personally, for track use i would ride both the same tires, same profile, same grip, same time to warm up, same rigidity...
Do these tires come in multiple compounds ? IE Hard versus medium
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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
Where are the wear indicators and what do they look like in different stages. How do you know when to replace? Thanks!
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are raised indicators inside the tread pattern, when the indicator is flush with the tire it's time to replace.

What is the difference between this tire and the DSC sc? Which would be better for track use only.

Also I heard if you rear tire size is 180/55 17 you can fit a 180/60 17 with this tire, is that true?

A S on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've never used the DSC SC, but I've been told by the local Ducati shop, from well experienced riders, that it's a better track tire. Faster warm up primarliy. Supercorsa SP V2 works well obviously also, but for just track use, I'd try the DSC SC.

Using a 60 series vice 55 depends on the bike. Usually width is the limiting factor. I'd check with someone who has tried it on your particular bike.
