Pirelli Diablo Rosso has anyone tried them on k1200s

I am interested in fitting a pair off Pirelli 's latest Diablo Rosso tyres onto my K1200s ,has anyone tried them yet as I would like to know if they or the Pirelli Diablo Corsa 111 seem to handle better.at the moment I am running on the Metzler M3.

I can't speak to the Rosso's but I love Pirelli tires and have been running the Diablo Strada's for a couple of years now.

They last longer than anything I've ever put through it's paces and the grip is excellent.

The Strada's have a harder compound in the center than they do on the sides.

BTW, I am pretty hard on tires thanks to what I learned at Freddie Spencer's riding school :-)

Had the Corsa and the Rosso wear out on the rear on my KR Sport. Both had outstanding traction dry and wet. The Rosso's lasted much longer. But neither of them will last as long as the Strata.
I've put 18,700 miles on my Sport in a year and I will be putting on my 5th rear tire next week.

Would you say that the Corsa 111 has better grip than the Rosso or would you say they are similar,as the Rosso lasted longer,

Rumor has it the Rosso is the same as the Metzeler Z6, but with a different tread pattern.

Love my Z6s, plenty of tire there to grind metal parts if I so choose, and they last reasonably well.
