Pirelli Tire North America will introduce two new sizes of its DIABLO SUPERBIKE tyre lineup, geared specifically toward entry-level sportbikes. The new tires will be available in 110/70-17 front and140/70-17 rear sizes and reaffirms Pirelli’s commitment to racing and the growing popularity of smaller sportbike racing classes.
SC1 Compound Will be Available in 110/70-17 Front and 140/70-17 Rear Sizes
The new sizing options will be available in Pirelli’s SC1 compound. The front tire has been designed for improved handling and grip, while the rear will continue to have the same feel as the current race-proven DIABLO™ Supercorsa tires that have been winning races and setting records across the United States.
Compound updates with the introduction of the new SCX and larger sizes for the DIABLO SUPERBIKE slicks: innovative rear tread pattern and two different compounds for the DIABLO Rain tyre.
The new technical solutions, produced from constant development work, will beused by WorldSBK and National Championship riders and, in line with Pirelli’s philosophy towards two-wheeled racing, will be available for purchase by all motorcycle riders.
Pirelli, upon completion of intense and constant development work which started in 2017 and continued throughout 2018, is pleased to introduce the new 2019 DIABLO™ range of tyres in compounds intended for track use to racers and motorcyclists all over the world.
The goal that guided this development, which has resulted in the new solutions, was to increase consistent performance and, especially for the rear, ‘mechanical resistance’.
The Pirelli DIABLO Supercorsa SC V3 tyres are grooved solutions intended for track use and dedicated to professional and amateur riders, as well as sport users seeking top spec performance on the track.
These tyres are also available in various compounds in order to take on the different types of asphalt and weather conditions that can be found on circuits all over the world but, unlike the DIABLO™ Superbike tyres, no SCX or SC3 compound is available.
MICHELIN TPMS – Bike detects a tyre in distress through loss of pressure, fast leakage or an increase in temperature – often the sign of an impending blowout. Its compact display flashes as brightly as a mobile phone torch if it detects an issue, plus identifies whether it is the front or rear tyre affected.
Advantages of the MICHELIN TYRE PRESSURE Monitoring SYSTEM-bike
The motorcycle manufacturer recommends a tyre pressure (to be taken from the vehicle documents / operating instructions) which must always be observed. This applies to the tyres with which the motorcycle was delivered.
Tire manufacturers sometimes deviate slightly from this. Since motorcycle tires are constructed differently, such as. different stiff carcass or carrying capacity, they also tolerate a different air pressure. The tire manufacturers test the latest tires on the motorcycle, or pass on the optimal duck for your tire based on experience. Over the years, it may well be that the recommendations of the tire manufacturer are much more accurate than what the motorcycle manufacturer recommended a few decades ago.
Recently, we also maintain the recommended air pressures in our myNETmoto / database. You can choose your bike to find the recommended tires and air pressure.
Unless the motorcycle has a TPMS motorcycle tire pressure monitoring system
These systems are only prescribed for cars and not for motorcycles, although the right tire pressure is much more important here than in the car.
It decides about life and death who, due to the wrong pressure, slips away and lands in the next ditch.
It is up to everyone, but we strongly recommend getting a TPMS.
