LOVE THESE TIRES!!!
July 11, 2012(Mantua, OH)
I bought these tires (front and rear) in 2010. I've put 8,000 miles on this set of tires. I don't do a lot of hard riding, mostly back and forth to work, a lot of highway miles. Every now and then I do some harder riding, they grip well in corners and I try not to get crazy in the rain so I don't really know what their capabilities are on wet surfaces. Looking at them today while doing some work on the bike I noticed the threads showing a little. Ordering another set right now!!
Not worth it!!

I'm well past the break-in period for these tires and I still don't have confidence in them when I hit the twisties. They last quite a while, but I need to trust my tires when I hit corners. Moving to Pilot Powers.

I hate these tires because I have tried all other brands and nothing else works as well from the first corner at the end of my driveway as well. I hate them cause they cost so much compared to everything else out there. And because of that I will keep looking for a replacement brand that works as good. Till then I will give in and buy them till someone steps up to the plate with a compatible tire.
Corner Great, Tread Life Bad :/

I got these stock on my Buell 1125cr... Awesome tire if you hit the track every once in a while and are an aggressive Corner Monster. But if you don't, then don't get these tires, I'm at 3,900 miles and already showing radial tread. :(
Other than that, I feel super confident at high speed turns and low lean angles! Hope this helps.

My bike came stock with this tire front and rear, I never had any slips, wobbles or shifting in turns it wore out right before 2k miles. I have run michellins power 2CT, (2 rear) continental conti motion (1 front) and now a pirelli angel rear none of which have lasted more than 3k miles. The Pirelli Diablo Corsa 3 is a great tire but it's expensive my favorite so far is the ContiMotion, don't let the low price fool you it's a great tire.
Corsa III’s-Great Tire
June 02, 2011(Allover, TX)
I ride hard on a heavy bike…..’09 Hayabusa. The Corsa III’s are hard to beat when it comes to cornering/leaning. Knowing that the Busa eats tires and the life expectancy of any tire on a sport bike is short, if you’re using the bike for its design, they give me what I pay for. If I get 4800 miles, I am happy and I normally get that with the Corsa III’s. I have gone through four rear and two front with complete satisfaction. Never slipped out of control and I love high speed sweeping curves. I am an everyday rider 38+ years, ice is the only time I don’t ride. I put the test to my tires and the Corsa III’s have passed with flying colors. I can say with the utmost confidence that the tire is an all-weather tire that will get you through the twisties at high speeds. Now to test the Corsa (W speed rated).

I love everything about this tire...except the tread life. The tire warms up quick, sticks like glue, has lots of feel and is stable. I've only lost traction when in the wet when accelerating across the paint lines (tell me if you know of a tire that won’t do that). My ONLY disappointment is 2,200 miles of tire life (and the cords were showing by that point). I've only done one track day and the rest of the time my tires get the royal treatment (checking the air pressure before each ride and putting the bike up on tire stands between rides). I checked the tires before my trip with 1,800 miles on them but they blew thru the last 400 really quick. If you only ride weekends this could be a great tire, if you put serious miles on your ride look elsewhere.
Corsa III, not a wet weather tire!

Great tire for aggressive street riding.....when it’s nice out. If you ride in the rain DO NOT get these, stock on my Buell, made me sick to my stomach from how many times the rear slipped out with very mild acceleration out of corners. Wear out too quick for the price too.
A complete "street or track" race tire.

First I have to say that I have not ridden on this particular tire in the past year, but they deserve the review never the less. Since these tires I have ridden/raced on Pilot Pwr 2ct, M3's, and as of recent, the Q2's. All tires mentioned have been overall great tires. BUT, the Pirelli Diablo Corsa III's by far has been the best in performance. My GSXR 1k has never stuck so hard to the ground and I never had so much confidence in any other tire as I did with the Corsa 3's. In every aspect or cornering or accelerating, these tires were just made for me. Can’t really comment on wet traction, because I have always taken it easy in the rain. Even though I had no problems in the rain with these tires. Simply put, just an incredible tire. One drawback, Rear tire lasted 2200 miles before the cords wanted to surface. Tread life is not that good if you ride aggressively.
