Tyre Life

Sorry Tyre Life sounds like a lame 90's TV series.... :087:
Has anyone any experience of the Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres and how long they last, er, ridden enthusiastically?
Just due to go on a French trip and wondering if they'll go the distance (sic!).

They are (supposed to have better life) than the Outgoing mark 1's I got 10,000 on my street triple with them on last 2000 with brother who likes to spend his time on the back wheel.  Front was a bit better condition than the back as expected but both tyres on just under 2mm but no defects and 2 repairs.  Only problem I can see is loads as I run a Trophy 1200 and only get about 6000 out of Pirelli Angel GT's on the rear about 8000 on the front but the bike us usually loaded with Pillion and luggage plus 120kgs for them ontop of me and the bike with luggage.

My S1000R came with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II, the rear was toast in 1800 miles. This did include a couple of Trackdays, but I wouldn't be surprised if the XR lasts a similar distance.

It would be a real surprise if the Pirelli's go for much distance on this bike if you're thrashing it on a regular basis.  :305:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Mine have currently lasted 2300 miles. Just come back from riding in Spain. Not thrashing the bike , but not hanging around either. Should get around 3500 miles at a guess!

Yes..rained to the ferry in the UK and to the ferry in Spain! They were good. no dramas apart from the rear stepping out on a piece of spanish overbanding, but that would happen with any tyre. i felt pretty confident with them!
