Product Details

Pirelli Diablo Rosso II Motorcycle Tire

Pirelli's Diablo Rosso II is the sportiest and most versatile road-oriented tire of the Rosso Generation. This supersport radial is perfect for all riding conditions, including the wet. It features a tri-zone dual compound rear, and the Diablo Rosso II has a high-grip compound on the shoulders and a wet / mileage compound in the center. The tire's grip is enhanced even further by EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology), a technology developed in the World Superbike, and a maximum contact patch area is due in part to an ICS (Integrated Contour Shaping) technology, complimenting handling and power of today’s modern motorcycles.

Features

  • W-rated for speeds up to 168 mph and (W)-rated for speeds of 168+ mph
  • Tubeless (TL)
  • Pirelli Enhanced Patch Technology (EPT) optimizing the contact patch for improved grip
  • Functional Groove Design (FGD) to optimize wet behavior
  • Bi-Compound rear tire combining long lasting mileage with excellent grip at full lean
  • Front tire's design is derived from the Diablo Rosso Corsa to provide improved drainage, better wear
  • regularity and efficient braking
  • Slick shoulder area for maximum grip at full lean, providing confidence and top performance
  • Blackwall
  • 180/60ZR-17 size for 5.5" rims

I have a set of rosso 3 on my other bike. They work so good at the track i assume the rosso 2 cant be much worse. I have high hopes for these tires on my ninja 300.

Eric C on Sep 21, 2019
I have not tried this specific pirelli tire before, but couldn't find the size that I needed for my son's bike in the pirelli angel gt that I run on my bike. But if it is anything close to the angel gt he won't be disappointed. Pirelli tires are a top notch tire and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Kelby B on Sep 17, 2019
Stock tires and excellent in every way. Decent in the rain despite the 240mm width rear. Sticky as hell in the dry! I'd give them a B+ on longevity given the softness & speed rating.

Eriberto A on May 15, 2019
These are stock on my XDiavel! And the grippiest tires I've ever run. Also one of two manufacturers that makes the 240/70 r17 for the rear. Ive heard these are still better!
AARON P on Apr 27, 2019

Mark G on Apr 23, 2019
Love these tires, prior to them losing there profile they make by bike ride and handle like a new bike. Cornering, braking and rolling down the road it's hard to believe that a set of tires can make so much difference. A price is to be paid on durability they do wear...

These tires have excellent grip, they are very stable in a hard lean. They DO wear fast. I got 4000mi out of the rear before it was time for a new one, but at the price/grip point, I'm happy with the rubber!

what zise of tires i need for a suzuki katana?
null on May 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question! For the front you will need a size 120/70-17 for the rear you will need 150/70-17.
When I picked my replacement tire I must have picked the wrong size. I picked the 120-60 but should have picked the 120-70. Would I suffer dramatic handling issues or should I return it for the other size?
Joseph B on Dec 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question Joseph! We recommend to use the OEM tire sizes for safety. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll free at 1-888-339-3888.

Curious to age of the tires you have on sale because I purchased my same front tire last year and chdecked date stamp just today and said 2012? Isn't that a bit old or how's that work? Thanks
Joshua M on Apr 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello Joshua, tires have a shelf life of 10+ year if properly stored. From the manufature, the tires are coated with an anti-rotting agent to prevent the rubber from dry rotting. The only way this coating can be removed is by riding on the tire. Also, the tire must be stored in a dry cool area out of the sun. All the tires we sell are stored inside of a warehouse out of the sun. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.

NINJA 300 - Great tires over stock, more control. Great shipping speed. Exactly as expected.
Ninja 300 - These tires are an absolute game changer from the stock ones. I feel so much more in control and am able to make much sharper turns. Shipping was fast but the tires came loose, I was expecting them to be in a box. That's okay because it all turned out well. Would recommend these over stock tires to anyone anyday.

good front tire so far
I needed a front and soon a rear tire for my 2002 BMW 1150R, and while I generally buy Shinko and have been reasonably happy with them in the past the rear Shinko on this bike has .melted relatively quickly. So based on recommendations bought a set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso II and so far only changed the front. First impression in early curves very surprised at the change in behavior of the bike, did not expect it, but got used to it very quickly and so far the tire does well, provides confidence in grip and steadiness even at high speeds. I have yet to change the rear so more on that later.

excellent tires. fast and cured the 250 ninja speed wobble.
i bought two front tires -- a 110 and a 120-- to put onto my 2007 kawasaki 250 em ninja. nobody makes a 110 and a 130 in a set anymore for this bike, but the 120 was a factory size for the rear the previous year. turned the 120 around backwards to use on the back. took it to the land speed races in maine and clocked a record in the 1.5-mile pure production class. the bike also had the infamous ninja 40-mph-wobble, as well, and these tires eliminated that. the pirellis are about the only option available to get a front and a rear in the same style tire for these old 16-inch wheels.

My second set (I think)
I have not had the chance to put enough miles on the tires but my last set was great. I have a 2004 BMW K1200RS which is on the large and heavy side of motorcycling but I can lay the bike to the edge of the tires which says a lot about the tire.

Was delivered quickly and with no issues
The tires are good and were delivered quickly. The only downside is the lack of communication during the delivery - the tracking number wasn't working.

Apart from that, all went well!
