Quick start for the Pirelli DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II.

The new DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II from Pirelli performs a real quick start: The Italian rubber gets top ratings in all the categories and secures the win in the comparison test of hyper sports tyres in the current edition 6-2018 of the specialized magazine “PS“.

“The Italian tyre performs under all conditions in an outstanding way, is the best all-rounder, and thus, deserves the first position. As swift as an arrow on dry or wet roads, it never lowers its guard. According to the summary, “it sets the only top rating concerning cold running behaviour and wet grip”.  Moreover, it is said that, Pirelli uses three different compounds at the back, which spread over five zones for the first time. At the front, you can find two compounds being spread over three zones. As a consequence, high mileage, and grip and a sloping position are to be generated at the same time”. The rating focused on cold running behaviour, handling, accuracy, stability, grip, behaviour in border areas, righting moment, and feedback. Dry conditions were tested on the “Circuit d’Alcarràs“ in Northern Spain, and wet conditions on a special test area in Southern France. A BMW S 1000 RR served as testing motorbike.

“The testers at PS wanted the tyre to really face demanding exercises, thus, we are of course extremely satisfied that the DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II performs that well”, Michael Müller, Head of the Business Area Two-Wheel Vehicles in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Benelux at PIRELLI, happily announces. “I am especially pleased that our tyre is able to lead the field in both dry and wet conditions. As a consequence, a big praise is directed to our development team.” The Pirelli DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II receives a total of 296 points, followed by the Continental Raceattack Comp. Endurance (294 points), the Dunlop Sportsmart TT (287 points) and finally the Michelin Power RS (275 points).
