Re: Pirelli Diablo or Pilot Power (bigtime)
Pilot Power, no question! I have a set on my R6 racebike. The grip is outstanding. I am going through corners picking up my knee as the lean angle increases. Wear is outstanding. After a full track day the tires look barely scuffed-in! The rear tends to slide very slightly coming out of slow corners when getting on the gas hard and at high RPM, but it is completely predictable.
I even used them in my first SuperSport race of the season with the CRA over the weekend of 21-22 May. I ran near the front of the group throughout the race when everyone else was on full D.O.T. spec race tires. The Pilot Powers make me wonder why I bought D.O.T.'s??
