Pirelli Introduces First Multi-Compound Motorcycle Tire

DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II is the first Pirelli multi-compound tire that uses two compounds applied in three zones on the front tire and three compounds applied in five zones on the rear to create the ideal combination for modern motorcycles.

Using its 15 years as Official Tire Supplier to the FIM Superbike World Championship, Pirelli has now merged its technology from the race track and road to produce the DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II. Since the launch of the original DIABLO ROSSO CORSA in 2010, motorcycle torque and horsepower outputs have increased significantly and the introduction of sophisticated traction control systems and cornering ABS have enabled these performance gains to be applied by more riders at greater lean angles. DIABLO ROSSO CORSA II is the first Pirelli multi-compound tire that uses two compounds applied in three zones on the front tire and three compounds applied in five zones on the rear to create the ideal combination for modern motorcycles. Innovative profiles, a new structure derived from racing and a new tread design make this tire the best balance for riders wanting an excellent street tire that is even suitable for the racetrack. Pirelli says the new tire will be available worldwide in January 2018.
