Pirelli Diablo Rosso III £250

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Tyre Guide -

Pirelli’s Diablo Rosso III tyres are allpur­pose sports tyres that fit bang in the mid­dle be­tween a high-mileage, win­ter sports tour­ing tyre and road com­pound track­day rub­ber.

What are they like?

Rid­ing a BMW S1000R, we tested the new Rosso IIIS on dry roads and Pirelli’s wet-weather test track, which fea­tures dif­fer­ent grip lev­els of tar­mac and mid-cor­ner pud­dled sec­tions, where a good tread pat­tern shows its worth.

You can use them all year round, for sports road rid­ing and oc­ca­sional track­days, what­ever bike you ride. Al­though they don’t have the out­right grip of a sports tour­ing tyre in the wet, they’ll still give plenty of con­fi­dence. They’re more durable and warm up faster than track­day rub­ber and are ev­ery bit as grippy on the road. But what’s most im­pres­sive is how light and crisp they make the steer­ing at low and high speeds. But this agility doesn’t come at the ex­pense of sta­bil­ity, so the bars won’t dance in your hands when you push hard.
