Well, if this helps, anything with the "Diablo" moniker is more track oriented, i.e. you can do a track day or two, and less oriented toward long wearing highway stuff. That's why you have "Diablo Rosso Corsa," "Diablo Rosso IV," "Diablo SuperCorsa," etc.Thanks for your info, folks. I’m erring towards Pirellis, probably Rosso Corsas, but it doesn’t get any less confusing. There seem to be:
Rosso Corsa II
Rosso Corsa III
Rosso Corsa IV
Which is which, for what? Is the Diablo Rosso Corsa any different, or is it then same tyre?
Supercorsas (in all the SC1, 2, & 3 compounds)
Do you still get Dragon Corsas? What are they in relation to the above, then?
Not too worried about rain performance, I’ve got the Hyper on Roadtecs for that.
As far as the differences, I can tell you what I think but I don't know if it's right as I have limited experience based on the SuperCorsa SP V3. There's no EVO that I have seen but there is a "TD" which is a track day version.
Anyway, I'd like to not be someone who speculates and rather someone who shares knowledge based on experience so I'll stop there. That said, I am sure that enough people here have ridden the variations outlined that we can compare notes.
I will buy a set of Diablo Rosso IV's for one of my bikes this year and report back. Based on Pirelli's literature, it seems like the SuperCorsa tire but with the compound dialed specifically for road use as opposed to the Supercorsa which, again per Pirelli, seems to be a track compound tire that's treaded to be street legal. I suspect it will translate to have a lower temp envelope which would offer better grip for road performance but we will see.
