About Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP The tyres for the Panigale V4 have been jointly developed by Ducati and Pirelli. The Panigale is also the first motorcycle ever to come factory fitted with a Pirelli tyre known as Diablo Supercorsa SP. Talking about the front tyre, the profile has been optimized to enhance various riding aspects such as handling and grip loss predictability. The racing-spec rear tyres work amicably with the front ones increasing the contact patch at extreme lean angles and simultaneously ensuring robustness and versatility required for road use. The new tread pattern in the Supercorsa SP sports ‘flash’ geometry enriching track performance, reducing groove widths and improving wear to provide adequate support while thrusting.
