Hey Dakota,Thinking about new shoes for my 996. I really like what I am reading and watching about the Diablo Supercorsa from Pirelli. Sounds like they heat up soon enough for the street and have at least some mileage longevity in them.
I agree. I have two track days and about 500 street miles on the Rosso III. I can’t speak enough about the tires. The track days were both in 100 degree heat. Although they’re not Supercorsas, they gave my Multi 1260 plenty of grip. And the street mileage over Supercorsas is a huge plus.its all based on preference, but sounds like the Rosso Corsa II or even the Diablo Rosso 3 would work for you. I've run Rosso 3's on the track before and been fine, so for the street they'll perform.
I have a pair of these on my R... once warmed up they are incredible. On more than one occasion after a spirited ride when temps were in the high 80's/low 90's, a rub of the tire surface with my thumb produced a fair amount of rubber. I've put about 2000 miles on them since new and they are holding up very well.Thinking about new shoes for my 996.

In my defense, I typically do not ride in weather that is anything but ideal... and when the weather is warm, these things are incredible. I simply had no idea they would be so much more difficult to warm up in colder ambient temps than the Diablo Corse III's that I ran previously.That video above was spot on the money.
I’ll bet 80% of the sportbikes crashed on the street are from guys running racy tires that are cold. Then they think their crash was because the tires weren’t sticky enough and buy racier rubber and crash again...all simply because of cold tires.
Good sport touring tires are way more capable than 99% of us and still work when cold.
