The polymers used for the SP compound helps achieve earlier warm-up and improved grip in all conditions
Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP has gained yet another original equipment approval, this time from Honda. The tyre has been chosen for the CBR1000RR-R Fiberblade and the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP (in 120/70 ZR17 front and 200/55 ZR17 rear).
The top performing member of the DIABLO road family from Pirelli, now in its third generation, is confirmed as the first choice for high-performance motorcycles recently introduced on the market by the most prestigious motorcycle manufacturers.
DIABLO Supercorsa SP is a concentration of technology which draws from Pirelli tyre racing experience and heritage as sole supplier of the Superbike World Championship since 2004, transferring sport technology to high performance street legal products, Said Pirelli in a release.
According to Pirelli, “This street tyre is designed for bikers who have a sporty street riding style but also love the track. It provides racing performance typical of track-only products, allowing the user to have a product that can be used in both arenas without compromise.”
“Compared to the SC compound version, the DIABLO Supercorsa SP has a rear bi-compound solution in order to give increased mileage and more grip while leaning. EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) has also made it possible to use 23% more soft compound in the shoulder area compared to its predecessor with 33% of the pattern extension on each side, guaranteeing better grip in mid to full lean. Finally, the polymers used for the SP compound helps achieve earlier warm-up and improved grip in all conditions.”
The DIABLO Supercorsa SP rear carcass is made from an innovative high module fibre, patented by Pirelli and developed in WSBK, with a considerably lower deformation ratio than the fibre normally used in street tyres. The result is a carcass that is more rigid, both at the centre and in the shoulder area. This provides greater resistance to the stress created by aggressive cornering or when accelerating early out of turns with the bike still in a leaning position.
