Unlike some of the other bike heroes who review tires I am not a street racing god who shreds up the tarmac every time I go out... I have no idea where they ride so hard without being caught or killed but I wish I could go there... that said I do ride pretty fast but I have been trained how and I would say 'smooth' riding is my forte - so take from that what you will. I ride like a real person who likes to use his bike to HIS full potential, not the bikes. I ride 1000+ sporty bikes such as Blackbirds, etc. My last bike was a Fazer 1000 and my current is a Tiger 1050. So lots of torque and drive but not heavy touring behemoths but neither are they super light. Being a nerd I keep logs of how long my tires last and I have consistently achieved 8000+miles out of these on my Fazer and Tiger. That longevity coupled with stable grip in wet and dry through anything I can throw at the bikes makes this a great choice. Plus they are not the most expensive... Give them a try, you won't be disappointed!

Great tire for the Buell. Rear lasted just over 10k kms, not bad considering riding style on this torquey single. Much better than the stock Dunlops as many will attest.

Good looking pair of tires. Handle great and can't beat the price.

I replaced a set of Michelin Pilot 2s with these. I was torn between the Pilot 4s or the Pirelli Angel GTs. The two tires flip/flopped on the reviews as the #1 Sport Touring tire. I went with the Pirelli in the end for the cheaper cost. BTW Motorcycle Superstore beats everyone else's price! I made the right choice. I feel I could ride on the ceiling. And very quiet and smooth. I did not think my BMW K1200RS could be smother than it already was - the Pirelli tires proved me wrong. Buy them, mount them, scruff them in slowly - Amazing tires.

I have been running Pirelli Diablo Corsa's, and now the Rosso's on my CBR1000RR for twelve years. I really like that the center lasts, as I do have to travel to and from the canyons. I am not heavy handed on the corner exits; however,I do try to carry maximum speeds thru all the corners and these tires rarely get even a little loose. I got caught in heavy rain three times going thru the mountains recently and the Rosso III maintained traction while carrying good speed thru the corners and the temps were quite cool (50s, F). I have averaged 4-4.5K on the rear Rosso II, therefore I'm expecting the same or better on the III. I used the Rosso II on a track day before and it heated up and stuck quite well under heavy acceleration on corner exits, very little sliding. I am extremely satisfied with Pirelli!!!

Best tires out there!!!
