Pirelli Diablo Corsa 111's - comments?

Tried them out at Brands this week & to be honest didn't like them (see for sale section!)

I think Pirelli have changes the profile to make the handling a lot more responsive but lost some of the usual Pirelli stability I liked about the std diablo corsa - reminded me of the old Bstone 012ss's - which I didn't like much either

Anyone else got any comments??

I have Diablo Corsas on one set of wheels and SuperCorsa Pros on another set for the 888. The Diablos feel nice and stable in a straight line and turn in quite well. The SuperCorsas do not feel right until the bike is cornering and they transform into complete stability. They turn in better than the Diablos too.
Both give more grip than I can cope with, so I doubt if I will get any more Supercorsas, or whatever they are replaced with.

Used Diablo Corsas on our ZX9r & R6 endurance bikes with very good results. I then put a set onto my 748SPS didn't like them, no feel into the corners went back to Michelins / Dunlops. Maybe it's a twin thing.....

Did 200 miles plus on the Corsa IIIs today and to be honest they felt exactly the same as the original Diablo Corsas. They certainly didn't feel more unstable and any extra grip that they offer won't be apparent till I get the bike on the track again next weekend
