Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa: from track to road, the fourth generation of the tire that symbolizes sporty driving.
The following is a press release from Pirelli….
The new product, both in SP race replica and SC compound versions, is in the final stages of development and testing, to be on sale from early 2023.
Milan (September 12, 2022) – The fourth generation of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres, both in the SP racing street version and the SC option (available in different compounds and designed for track use), successfully complete the final stages development and testing and will be available to the public from early 2023.
Compared to its predecessor, the Diablo Supercorsa V4 (V4 indicates the fourth generation) is a completely renewed product in terms of tread design, compounds, structures and profiles. Diablo Supercorsa, both in the racing version and in the racing replica version, is a tire approved for road use and has always been an emblem of pure performance and absolute sportiness, in other words “speed”.
Diablo Supercorsa was born from the experience of Pirelli in the FIM Superbike World Championship, which since 2004 has partnered with the Italian tire company as a sole supplier. After launching in 2005 the Diablo Superbike slick tire for exclusive use on the track and designed for the maximum competition of the derivatives of the series, Pirelli presented the Diablo Supercorsa SC racing tire in 2007, which was followed in 2008 by the SP ( Sports Production). Over the years, in its SC compound version, Diablo Supercorsa has become the absolute reference of the Supersport and Superstock classes not only in the world but also for many national championships and still represents the standard for competitions that still use tread tires. rolling.
Diablo Supercorsa not only marked a turning point for professional riders: together with the SP version, it represented a revolution in the world of road tires for motorcycles. It created a new segment, that of race-derived hypersport tires designed to fit the most prestigious and powerful supersport motorcycles in the world, the same motorcycles seen in action in the Superbike World Championship. Over time, and with the evolution of two-wheelers which have seen the birth of increasingly high-performance hypernaked tires similar to faired “cousins”, Diablo Supercorsa SP has become the benchmark supersport tire for all motorcycle owners on the go. high performance, who want an uncompromising driving experience on the road, thanks to the highest level of grip and performance.
It was precisely with Diablo Supercorsa that the Pirelli motto “We sell what we race, we race what we sell” was born to indicate how the same tires used by professional riders can be purchased by all motorcyclists. To date, Diablo Supercorsa SP remains the best and most direct example of technology transfer from track to road among Pirelli tires, as it shares the profiles and many materials and technologies used for the structure with the SC version. But unlike the SC version, which uses full racing compounds, the SP adopts a dual compound solution, with racing compound on the shoulders and road compound in the center strip, to meet the demands of the road and ensure adequate mileage.
The SC version, available in different compounds designed to adapt to different asphalt conditions and temperatures, remains the first choice for professional, semi-professional or trackday enthusiasts who want a tread tire capable of delivering performance. maximum on the track.
With Diablo Supercorsa V4, Pirelli completes the process of renewing the fourth generation of the Diablo sports range, which began in 2021 with the Diablo Rosso IV and continued in 2022 with the Diablo Rosso IV Corsa.
