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

They are popular and they're decent rreading
Branden l on May 13, 2020
Pirelli is a great brand. I had them on one of my vehicles in the 90s, a VW Fox and they were great. I like to remain with quality brands and I might as well try them on my motorcycle to see if I have the same successful results. Looking forward to the experience.
TERRY N on May 10, 2020

glenn s on Apr 7, 2020
I bought the rear and loved the way it made the handling of the bike a little sharper and wanted a matching set
marc w on Mar 10, 2020
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.
Nicholas B on Jan 19, 2020
This tire holds up well to roads I ride in the canyons.
Anton G on Dec 26, 2019

Joseph C on Sep 25, 2019
I was informed this was fantastic for my Z900. We will see.
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.
Paul P on Sep 12, 2019

Reasonably priced OEM tire. Only reason for buying it I hit a sharp metal rod in the road and blew the tire.

I had a great experience before with these tires. overall a great tire just needs more life to them.
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
This tire had great reviews for a street/race style tire for a great price
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

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.

You found it! Best tires in the game!
I did a lot of research before buying these tires and oh boy, did I make the right decision. These are the best tires I’ve ever used on any motorcycle in the past 12 years of riding in the streets. I would highly recommend these tires to anybody looking for the perfect balance between performance, cost, and efficiency.

Excellent Track Tires for small bikes
The rear tire in 140/70/17 is an excellent track tire for small bikes like the Ninja 250, Ninja 300, R3, KTM 390. I use the rear tire for trackdays and racing. I love how these tires grip and I dont have to worry about compounds or hot pressures. Just set the cold pressure and go. I typically run the rear tire at 30 cold with great results.
