The supersport tyre from the Italian brand does the double equipping the latest models presented by the Schiranna company, in 120/70 ZR17 front and 180/55 ZR17 and 200/50 ZR17 rear sizes
Confirming itself as the best choice for high-performance and the most exclusive motorcycles recently launched on the market, the DIABLO ROSSO™II continues its domination.
In fact the supersport tyre of the Pirelli range has been chosen by MV Agusta to equip the new Brutale 800 RR (120/70 ZR17 front and 180/55 ZR17 rear sizes) and the Brutale Dragster 800 RR (120/70 ZR17 front and 200/50 ZR17 rear).
In particular, the 200/50 ZR17 rear equipping the new Brutale Dragster 800 RR has been specially developed by Pirelli for this MV Agusta model.
DIABLO™ is the family of high performance motorcycle tyres from Pirelli. The DIABLO™ trademark was born in 2002, making its first entry into the supersport segment and then extending the range up to the present in many other market sectors. DIABLO™ can therefore boast over 10 years of history, experience, technology and victories both on track and in comparative tests produced by the leading motorcycle magazines.
DIABLO ROSSO™II is the supersport tyre for road use of the Rosso Generation. As a result of technologies developed by Pirelli in over ten years of participation in the FIM Superbike World Championship, DIABLO ROSSO™II brings to new horizons the sporty attributes of the Rosso Generation for road use. Developed for naked and supersport motorcycles that require high performance and crucially, riding safety in all conditions, from winding country roads to city traffic, on dry as well as wet surfaces.
DIABLO ROSSO™II adopts some of the cutting edge technologies from Pirelli:
• The EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology), a technology developed by Pirelli in the Superbike World Championship, it optimizes the contact patch for improved adhesion of the tyre to the asphalt, giving excellent grip
• The ICS (Ideal Contour Shaping), is the technology that enhances the grip and the power delivery of modern motorcycles perfectly shaping the profile of the tyre for unprecedented results in terms of stability and safety while leaning
• FGD (Functional Groove Design) contributes to improve the wear regularity and to further increase the contact surface with an improved sea/land ratio that increases the agility of riding and the transmission of the power to the ground.
The structure of DIABLO ROSSO™II has been designed to maximize the contact area at any angle and at all speeds, to support the tread and to gain sporty grip combined with excellent stability. All this was achieved with the EPT technology that ensures a more uniform distribution of stress and pressure over the entire contact area.
The profiles designed with the ICS technology, provide support in lean and confidence while exiting corners at full throttle.
Structure and profiles have been designed to allow the front and the rear tyres to work in sync with a balanced behaviour.
The 0° steel belt under the tread optimizes the shape and elasticity of the tyre thus ensuring the rider progressive feedback through the corner, a homogeneous behaviour and optimal ‘bump’ absorption. With the support of the compounds, the zero-degree steel belt ensures maximum braking stability.
Regarding the compounds, DIABLO ROSSO™II applies the Bi-Compound concept to the rear tyre optimizing mileage and grip. In the central area there are polymers that improve the hysteresis to provide a faster warm-up and high traction in straight acceleration.
On the external zone, the slick area contains a High Dispersion Carbon Black compound that provides an excellent grip at full lean and with any riding style.
Both compounds warm up quickly and reach the optimal temperature of use in a very short time, letting the rider feel confidence and grip from the very beginning. Finally, the compound of the front tyre provides regular wear combined with stability.
The tread pattern design of the DIABLO ROSSO™II uses the FGD technology: the grooves are positioned exactly where needed, leaving the slick area on the shoulders and at the centre to ensure high mileage and grip at lean.
DIABLO ROSSO™II is exclusively personalisable thanks to special adhesive labels that can be created on the Pirelli website and applied on both sides of the front and rear tyres. Each tyre creates an identity with which each rider may tell his story and his passion for two wheels.
