Doha, 21.2.2006 -  Pirelli Presents the new Pirelli Diablo Superbike As the 2006 World Superbike Championship gets underway in Doha, Qatar, Pirelli will be the official tyre supplier for the third year in succession. The development in this class is continuous and endless, because performance is a never-ending quest for Pirelli, pushing the level of excellence of its tyres. The SBK Championship is a particularly strong motivating factor for Pirelli technicians, as tyres are developed for the needs of professional riders, each with their individual riding styles and different machines. From the mightiest 1000cc Superbike to the near-standard 600cc Superstock machine, from standard to tuned bikes, the common goal is to provide state-of-the-art tyres for any kind of street-derived 2, 3, or 4-cylinder machine. A tyre to fit and perform well on different bikes, for different riding styles, but always offering the same astonishing performance. Only if the performance is improved, only if the stopwatch and riders all give a nod of approval to our technician's efforts, do the tyres pass the test. No rider pays more attention to laptimes than one who's very way of making a living depends on them, and it's with professional riders - and most of all for them - that Pirelli develops its tyres.
