The Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP has been chosen by Honda, in 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR17 rear, as standard equipment for the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP, its new flagship supersport machine.

Diablo Supercorsa SP is already original equipment for supersport motorcyles such as the BMW HP4, Ducati 1199 Panigale (standard, S and R) and 899 Panigale, Aprilia RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R, EBR 1190 RS, MV Agusta F4, F4 R and F4 RR and Triumph Daytona 675 as well as naked motorcyles like the MV Agusta Brutale 1090 RR, Triumph Speed Triple R and Ducati Hypermotard SP.

Pirelli says the Diablo Supercorsa SP is a concentration of technology which draws from Pirelli's racing experience and heritage as sole supplier of the World Superbike Championship since 2004. Based on an ideal procedure of transferring sport technology to high performance street legal products. This street tyre, designed for professional riders and for bikers who have a sport street riding style but also love the track, provides racing performance typical of track-only products, allowing the user to have one ultra-high performance product that can be used on the street or the track without having to make compromises. Compared to the compound SC version used by Supersport and Superstock riders in the WSBK Championship, the Diablo Supercorsa SP offers a bi-compound rear tyre in order to better adapt to street use, as well as more regular wear which favours mileage.
