pirelli diablo\'s - top tyre

Just got a set of standard diablo's on my 748r today and i have to say i'm impressed. They feel great and the bike seems to drop into corners much quicker / easier than my old dragon evos ever allowed, dunno if they have a rounder profile or what but it work's - perhaps all the hype i've been reading of late is right.

Have to agree. I've just put a set on mine to, and right from the off, even before scrubbing in, they felt really good.
They warm up really quick.
Steering is much improved over the BT010's and high speed changes in direction seem a lot easier.
Back on Pirelli again for me :P

Superb tyres!
Wait till you see how long they last too!
Just over 4k on mine at the moment - the back tyre looks like it will last at least another thousand or so.
The front still looks brand new.
( I used to get 2.5k out of a rear Dragon Evo )
They also got top rating in this weeks MCN test.

Happy!

Will hopefully try the Diablo Corsa's in the near future, wanted my mate to try them at the TT but he wanted to stick with the Super Corsa's.

I paid 180 for front and rear for the standard pirelli diablo which was a ride in ride out service, fitting and balancing etc. I thought this was ok for saving me hassle especially as i don't have a front fork stand as of yet which makes getting the front wheel off a tad tricky. But i'm sure you will get them via the net or mail order for maybe 20 or 30 cheaper but then you have to sort fitting etc.
