Diablo Rosso II is Pirelli Moto's newest sport tyre for road use, now in bi-compound.
Diablo Rosso II is the ultimate sport tyre of the Rosso Generation for absolute road use.
Filled with technology developed by Pirelli during its seven years in the Superbike World Championship, Diablo Rosso II is the ideal evolution of Diablo Rosso and replaces its predecessor and inherits all the sporty identity, whilst at the same time emphasizing and improving versatility, wet performance and regularity of wear.
Diablo Rosso II raises the bar of the Rosso Generation's sport capabilities in respect to road use and is destined for Supersport and Naked bikes that demand top performance and riding safety in all types of use, from twisty countryside roads to city traffic and under both wet and dry conditions.
Diablo Rosso II now features a Bi-Compound tread spread between a grip compound on the shoulder (25%) and wet/mileage compound on the center (75%) of the rear tyre.
Grip is enhanced even further by EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) developed in the WSBK experience which optimises contact area with the road at all lean angles. This contact patch area maximization is due in part to an ICS (Integrated Contour Shaping), complimenting modern bikes' handling and power delivery by ideally mapping tyre profiles; resulting in strong improvements in stability, performance in the wet and safety in corners.
The tyre's FGD (Functional Groove Design) restyled tread pattern contributes to improved wear regularity and offers a land/sea ratio 2% more surface contact for greater confidence in the dry and an increased transfer of power to the ground.
