Honda has officially selected the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP as the official tyre for their latest 2020 Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and Fireblade SP. Recognised as the top-performing street tyre from Pirelli’s extensive range of quality rubbers, the third-gen Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP is highly recognized as one of the ‘good stuff’ by elite superbike riders around the globe.
This appointment showcases Honda’s trust in Pirelli’s ability to perform brilliantly with the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade and this would also mean that the latest Honda superbike will have some sort of advantage going into the upcoming WorldSBK season, which is also sponsored by Pirelli.
As for the street-legal Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP, riders can be confident that it’ll deliver promising performance not only in the track but also on open roads. With a bi-compound rear unit updated with Pirelli’s Enhanced Patch Technology (EPT), the new Supercorsa SP offers greater mileage and better grip at full lean.
This is all thanks to the manufacturing process of including 23% more soft compound in the tyre’s shoulders with 33% side pattern extensions that guarantee tasty grip when dragging your knees (or elbows if you’re like Marc Marquez). The new polymers in the tyre construction also offer faster warm-up and improved grip in all riding conditions.
In other words, you’ll get better mileage and superior grip whether you’re commuting daily or ripping the track’s apexes. Stability and durability are the names of the game and Pirelli has enhanced that with a huge dose of grip as well as traction so that you can go low in corners and accelerate hard coming out of them.
