Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2 or Diablo Rosso Corsa

Postby Greenblood » Tue Feb 09, 2016 9:39 am

I am about to change the tyres on the 10 and was wondering if anyone has experience with the Rosso Corsa or Rosso 2.
I want good grip but a tyre that works at street speeds and not too bad if it’s wet.

I would put a set of Metzler 7RR tyres on the list,running these on the H2 even did a trackday on them.They are also great in the wet. ;)

i was thinking of going with the Metzeler 7RR but I got a price of $435 on a set of Rosso 2.

Q3 or sportsmart 2 will do the trick and work in the wet.M7 is very good in the wet and dry and last . I just used the rosso corsa very very good tyres but don't last long at all .

My Tuono had Rosso Corsa's from new but only getting 2600kms with running it in :roll: I don't class my self as a quick rider either.
Next set was Rosso Corsa II and got about 4500 out of the rear but it's going to get a new one tomorrow, only ever been caught on damp roads and never had any moments on either tyre.

As I said I don't class myself as a quick rider but the way I ride they seem to heat up fairly quick.

M7RRs are only $450 a set (with a 180 rear) from Craig White. I can't imagine a set with a 190 would be much more.

I have Diablo Rosso II's on my new Z1000, front is stuffed so cant comment on it but the rear doesn't feel as grippy as the M7RR. Cant wait till its worn out and a set of Metzelers can go on :D
