Diablo Rosso Corsa: Power is nothing without your tyre
At the historic Assen TT Circuit, Pirelli presents the Diablo Rosso Corsa, the newest hypersport tyre which marks two motorcycle industry innovations: the ability to transfer more horsepower from the motorcycle to the ground and the first capable of telling the story and inspirations of the user through personalization of its sidewalls. Diablo Rosso Corsa uses the experience gained by Pirelli in racing championships all over the world and adopts new technologies developed to ensure high levels of performance and safety, for both performance on the road and track. In particular, Diablo Rosso Corsa is characterized by compounds derived from WSBK andEPT (Enhanced Patch Technology) which optimizes the tyre’s contact patch at all lean angles. THE TYRE THAT TRANSFERS POWER TO THE GROUND. The most notable innovation of the Diablo Rosso Corsa is the introduction of an effective method of measuring the true performance of tyres: the amount of horsepower which the motorcycle transfers to the ground. During the intense comparative tests carried out using the Diablo Rosso Corsa, the tester was able to transfer from the bike to the asphalt at least 10 Hp more than any other tested reference in each point of the track, with a peak of 40 Hp. These tests were conducted using a standard production motorcycle and a standard setup, and the Diablo Rosso Corsa was found superior to all other tested tyres in its ability to make the horsepower of the standard bike more usable. THE TYRE THAT TELLS THE STORY OF THOSE WHO RIDE. The extreme technology inside Diablo Rosso Corsa is uniquely matched with the opportunity for motorcyclists to express their passions. With special customizable labels designed by riders themselves, the sidewalls of the Diablo Rosso Corsa become a calling card, where the rider may compose a personal message to be written on the tyres: including rider’s own name, beloved country flag, preferred circuit layout, and even in different colors. The dedicated areas on the front and rear sides of Pirelli newest hypersport tyre are specifically designed to accommodate the labels, which can be created on Pirelli’s website and received at home. The Diablo Rosso Corsa personalisation kit, containing an exclusive set of six special tyre labels and all the materials needed for application are available for purchase from the MY DIABLO ROSSO™ Corsa dedicated section of the official website: www.pirellityre.com/drc.
