Pirelli declared that final testing was underway for its upcoming Diablo Supercorsa tires in September of last year. The Supercorsa range upgrade comes after the 2022 introduction of the Diablo Rosso IV Corsa. The new Diablo Supercorsa V4's specifications have been officially revealed for 2023 by the Italian tire maker. Unquestionably, Pirelli is one of the most well-known and highly desired motorcycle tire companies on the market. It is a popular among lovers of both big bikes and commuter scooters in the Philippines.
For sportbike and hyper-naked riders, there will primarily be two variants of the new Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tires, each with a different compound. The variant that is targeted for racing aficionados is called SC, or Special Compound. A dual-compound SP variant that can be used on both track and road conditions is also available. Starting with the SC V4, these tires employ a newer generation compound that is intended to provide better cornering traction than the V3. Additionally, a stronger racing carcass has been introduced for increased high-speed stability and improved corner exits.
The Diablo Supercorsa SC V4 is available in three distinct compounds: SC1, SC2, and SC3. In order to offer the best performance at the rear and the most reactivity up front, the softest of the group, SC1, is made for sessions on low-abrasive asphalt at high temperatures. The SC2 operates better consistently with both materials, however, and is better suited to colder temps and abrasive asphalt. The toughest compound is used by the SC3, which is best for lengthy track sessions and endurance events.
Moving on to the SP variants, the Supercorsa SP V4 is a tire that serves two purposes rather than being a true racing tire. It is built to deliver the best on-track performance possible while still having enough endurance to ride home after a grueling track day. As a result, it uses a dual-compound structure both up front and in the back. Due to the use of a tougher rubber composition in the core, it has a substantially longer service life than the SC. The tread pattern of the SP, however, is the same as on the SC.
