Motocross Rider Program

Pirelli Tire North America has announced the return of its #PirelliNation Motocross Rider Program for the 2023 racing season. With an impressive 79 Motocross World Titles, Pirelli dominates the racecourse on nearly every continent and country across the globe. Pirelli remains dedicated to the grassroots part of the sport, continuing with its motto, “We sell what we race, we race what we sell,” and offering all riders the ability to purchase the same SCORPION MX tires found on the bikes of their favorite professional riders and World Champions like Tim Gajser and Jeffrey Herlings.

The motocross rider program will offer several benefits, including technical advice and service at select races, the ability to purchase SCORPION MX tires at preferred pricing, Pirelli team-branded gear, national marketing opportunities and access to the latest Pirelli news. Residents of the U.S. are eligible for the program.

“Following a successful season, Pirelli is looking forward to returning even stronger for 2023,” said Nick Walton, off-road race manager, Pirelli. “Pirelli is dedicated to the grassroots level of the sport and supporting the everyday rider and racer who competes at their local motocross tracks. What makes Pirelli unique is that anyone can purchase the same tires found on the bikes of our World Champions. There are no secrets. 

“For 2023, we’ve put together an excellent network of trackside racing vendors who we will work with to provide the support and technical service needed to get Pirelli racers and their SCORPION MX tires to the top step of the podium.”

Pirelli will continue its presence in the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship and Pro Motocross Championship by having its race transporter set up at each of the 17 supercross and 11 motocross events to assist its teams and racers. Pirelli will also be on-site to support the all-new SuperMotocross World Championship, consisting of three rounds at the conclusion of the motocross season. 

The high-performance SCORPION MX lineup offers several different tread patterns, including the MX Soft, MX32 Mid Soft, and MX32 Mid Hard. View the complete range of SCORPION MX tires on the Pirelli website.

Road Race Rider Program

Pirelli Tire North America has announced the return of its #PirelliNation road race rider program for the 2023 racing season. As the official tire of the MOTUL FIM World Superbike Championship, Pirelli and its DIABLO Superbike lineup are the go-to tires for racers around the world, which includes three consecutive victories at the world-renowned Daytona 200. Pirelli remains dedicated to the grassroots part of the sport, continuing with its motto, “We sell what we race, we race what we sell,” and offering all riders the ability to purchase the same race compound tires found on the bikes of their favorite professional riders and World Champions like Alvaro Bautista, Jonathan Rea and Toprak Razgatlioglu.

The road race community program ensures racers are the first to know about the latest Pirelli news, be notified of the newest Pirelli products, receive updates on national marketing opportunities and be given access to technical advice and service at select races. Pirelli’s team will also identify and select several candidates who can purchase race compound tires at preferred pricing and be outfitted with Pirelli team-branded gear. Residents of the U.S. are eligible for the program.

“It was a great introductory season for the #PirelliNation road race rider program, which saw our brand achieve tons of success,” said Oscar Solis, road race manager, Pirelli. “The Pirelli DIABLO Superbike range, and all race compound tires, are developed alongside our professional riders in the World and National Championships before eventually making their way into the hands of local racers and everyday consumers. This strategy allows Pirelli to continuously work on the development to ensure the latest technology is incorporated into the same tires available at local dealers. This road racing community program has allowed us to strengthen our relationship with racers across the nation and provide them with the education and knowledge necessary to choose the best tire for them to reach success.”

Pirelli’s high-performance DIABLO Superbike lineup offers several different compounds including, SC1, SC2 and SC3 on the front and SCX, SC0, SC1, SC2 and SC3 on the rear.  View the complete range of DIABLO Superbike tires on the Pirelli website.
