Diablos vs Sportecs

On the basis that Metzler and Pirellis come out of the same factory, is there any differnce between these two tyres. This would be for road use.

Anyone tried Continental Road Attacks?

Sportecs are good..... Didn't have any problems coping with the awesome power put down by my SS or my Godlike skills at a scorching hot Brands Indy....

Never tried Diablos but have Diablo Corsas on now and they turn way faster, so much so that I nearly ran off the inside of the track on a number of occasions at Lydden. This may or may not be relevant depending on whetheror not Corsas have the same profile as Diablos... If the profiles different then its just mindless drivelthat uses up letters and proves how crap I am...

I'll go now.....

Cant answer Diablo v Sportec, but ...
I have had Sportec's on the FE, and they feel ok until they want to slide and then its a bit sudden, no creeping before it slides. They feel ok turning in too.
I have Dragon Evos on the beast, and they have a much more comforting feel, and turn in like a dream, even accounting for the different set up of the 2 bikes.
In contrast, I have BT010's on the SPS and I really dont lfeel at home with them.

I just realised that the dragons feel much more like race rubber, with the sportecs nearly there, while the bt10s nowhere near.
