Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP chosen as original equipment for the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and the CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP (in 120/70 ZR17 front and 200/55 ZR17 rear).
The Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP, currently in action at the Losail Circuit in Qatar are appointed as original equipment of the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP after they were chosen in 2014 to equip the previous SP model from the Japanese brand.
Diablo Supercorsa SP is a concentration of technology which draws from Pirelli’s racing experience and heritage as sole supplier of the Superbike World Championship since 2004, transferring sport technology to high performance street legal products. This street tire, designed for bikers who have a sporty street riding style but also love the track, provides racing performance typical of track-only products, allowing the user to have a product that can be used in both arenas without compromise.
Compared to the SC compound version, the Diablo Supercorsa SP has a rear bi-compound solution in order to give increased mileage and more grip while leaning. EPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) has also made it possible to use 23% more soft compound in the shoulder area compared to its predecessor with 33% of the pattern extension on each side, guaranteeing better grip in mid to full lean. Finally, the polymers used for the SP compound helps achieve earlier warm-up and improved grip in all conditions.
