Pirelli Diablo Rosso 2

Got the front and rear in correct size(140/70-17 and 110/70-17), fitted, for $379AUD. Just put on this arvo and rode home through town. Still scrubbing them in but they seem to have far more progressive roll in and seem to require a bit more input, albeit for more reward. Only done about 15kms though via the dentist and pub(the pub being a nessecity after the dentis wallet rapes you).
Might get up early for a bash and see how they go when warm.

Would love to hear how these go. I always have Pirelli on my car and probably going to do the same on the bike.

Take more of the snake that bit you and you'll be fine!

Wondering what they are like genisis.

Wondering if they have more feel than the Bt003's.. I may try these one day.

In our polish cbr 250r group we have 2 owners of PDR2 - both of them are very happy about them. So happy that I am mounting on my bike those tyres on monday

Yeah they are gold, money well spent. Turn in quick, change direction predictably well and are generally confidence inspiring. They seem to be a bit squirmish when cold, had a few slides, but the IRC's would be sideways in the same conditions.
My street has a perfect 70-80kph left hand corner which I scrape toe on most times I come home, this tyre has me moving my foot out of the way (where they should be) and they've only done about 100kms or so.

No experience with bt003s but would like to try them. If I get my ass to a track and like it I will definitely try them. What are they worth?

Edit: probably overkill for the street on this bike but I'll try use them as intended

Make sure you put a front on soon as you can.. thats a hell of a missmatch, the pirellis are sticky and probably last 1/3 as long as the originals.
