DIABLO™ ROSSO II
DIABLO™ ROSSO II TECHNICAL ADVICES
ROLE AND POSITIONING
The DIABLO Trademark represents the excellence of the Pirelli Brand in the motorcycle tire industry. The Diablo family has rapidly evolved from its 2002 introduction in the supersport segment to cover many other market segments from Racing to Hypersport.
The current Diablo Trademark consolidates 8 years of experience, technology and victories in prestigious tests and competitions.
A consistent choice as original equipment by top bike manufacturers, all Diablo marked products are also considered a reference by the most acclaimed international magazines. From this history and rich background is born the new DIABLO ROSSO II.
THE DIABLO TRADEMARK
Diablo Rosso II front tire is derived from Diablo Rosso Corsa (see picture right) to provide:
Better wear regularity
When compared to the predecessor (see picture right), Diablo Rosso II rear tire features an increased slick area in the central rib and on extreme shoulder. This provides:
Mileage and braking
Dry Grip at maximum lean
BI-COMPOUND REAR TIRE
Diablo Rosso II applies the Bi-Compound concept to the REAR tire: In the CENTRAL AREA (75% of total surface)
the high silica content compound, blended with a reactive polymer provides a BALANCED performance to offer Wet Grip, Stability and Mileage In the SHOULDER AREA (25% of surface)
the fine carbon-black and resins compound provides the SPORT performance for Dry Grip at high lean angles
Diablo Rosso II has increased the regularity of wear, thanks to the improvements on the tread pattern design that in combination with a specific silica compound offers both an excellent grip on wet and extended mileage.
The second, softer compound, derived from the experience of Diablo Rosso Corsa and localized along the naked shoulder of tread design, offers a superior grip while cornering at full lean angle.
