The new Triumph Speed Triple R, recently presented to the international press during EICMA, will roll on Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires derived directly from the SC (Special Compound) version of the same tread pattern adopted in the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup.
Pirelli says its Supercorsa SP tires use the same profile of the SC version, providing flat areas on the shoulders, increasing the contact patch at mid lean when the rider is still braking or opening the throttle and an optimal variation of this contact area linked to the lean angle to give the most progressive response.
The company says the advantages are high stability and cornering speed. This tire is characterized by a front casing, which keeps the tire on ground even under a low load, and a rear casing designed to improve the pressure distribution on the road surface.
The SP compound extends the mileage vs. racing specific compounds and withstands for extended periods of time the temperature variations typical of road duty, providing higher performances on wet ground, says Pirelli.
