Pirelli Diablo Corsa II - New Product Ideas

European Editor Bruno dePrato recently enjoyed a unique opportunity: test the brand-new Diablo Rosso II at Pirelli’s own test track in Italy. “The latest evolution of the Diablo Rosso,” he reported, “is a double-compound supersport radial developed specifically for today’s mid- and large-displacement sportbikes that spend most of their life on the street, not the racetrack.

“With steel belts at 0 degrees, a large central band featuring a new compound that positively ensures solid mileage, but also very safe grip on wet surfaces, and two lateral, high-grip bands for serious lean angles, the Diablo Rosso II is regarded as the most versatile of all Pirelli sport radials.

“Mounted on the 2011 BMW R1200R that I was riding, the Rosso IIs provided a real shot in the arm and even exceeded my expectations. The boxer-Twin became even more nimble and precise, quicker-steering and more stable under heavy braking. With the optional ESA set on Sport, the R1200R felt perfectly home at the track and took to footpeg-grinding lean angles as though I was seated at a café drinking a cup of coffee.”
