New Keeway MBP M502N naked bike is the QJ-owned brand’s first entry into the EU, and it’s targeted towards newbies.


Pirelli officially announces the 2021 Diablo Rosso IV’s arrival, a new high-performance rubber catered to supersports, hypernakeds, and superbikes.

According to Pirelli, the 4th-Gen Diablo Rosso provides excellent grip in every road condition and weather while increasing the bike control.

It is ideal for riders seeking thrills, mainly on weekends or for a short trip out of town.

The Diablo Rosso IV, albeit a high-performance rubber, has more road nature than the Diablo Supercorsa SP, designed for track use.

While the Diablo Rosso Corsa II can also balance between road and track, the Diablo Rosso IV offers superior mileage and better handling on wet surfaces.

Diablo Rosso IV construction uses a zero-degree steel belt that enables the tire to adapt brilliantly to different stress levels.

The use of Rayon ropes for greater stiffness at the front also helps improved riding precision.

Meanwhile, for rear tires 190/55 ZR 17 and above or motorcycle with more than 200hp, a three-filament Lyocell structure has been adopted. The result is a new structure capable of offering more excellent resistance to the stress during cornering or acceleration.

The Diablo Rosso IV will be made available starting Q1 2021 with the 120/70 ZR 17, 160, 180, 190, 200, and 200/60.

The official price is yet to be announced.

Sejak memperkenalkan Diablo Rosso julung kalinya pada 2008, Pirelli telah pun merekodkan jualan lebih 5,000,000 unit model tersebut.

Pirelli kini membuka tirai tahun 2021 dengan memperkenalkan Diablo Rosso IV.

Tayar generasi keempat ini dicipta bagi meneruskan tradisi Diablo Rosso sebagai produk berprestasi tinggi sepertimana ditawarakan Diablo Rosso III namun meningkatkan kualiti tunggangan dan cengkaman di atas permukaan kering dan basah.

Meskipun info lebih terperinci tidak didedahkan namun menurut Pirelli, Diablo Rosso IV adalah tayar untuk penunggang motosikal yang gemarkan tunggangan dinamik terutamanya pemilik motosikal jenis supersports, hypernaked dan superbike.

Pirelli is kicking off the new year by unveiling its latest Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV high-performing rubbers for those looking for the ultimate all-rounder tyre that can handle all weather conditions whilst offering dynamic performance and feedback for your supersports, hypernakeds, and superbikes.

Pada 31 Mac lalu, Brembo telah membeli 2.43 peratus saham milik Pirelli dalam pendekatan yang dilabel sebagai usaha jangka masa panjang.

Senario itu bukan satu kejutan malah tahun lalu, Timbalan Pengerusi Eksekutif Brembo, Matteo Tiraboschi mendedahkan mereka dalam perancangan mengambil alih sebuah syarikat bear dalam industri automotif.

Bagaimanapun, beberapa hari selepas itu, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif (CEO) Pirelli, Marco Tronchetti Provera menafikan spekulasi bahawa pembelian saham itu merupakan langkah awal Brembo dalam mengamil alih Pirelli.

“Tiada perancangan pengambilalihan atau bergabung dengan Brembo, mereka hanya membuat pelaburan dan kami gembira mereka melakukannya,” jelasnya kepada Reuters.

Menariknya, CEO Pirelli itu tidak mengetahui rancangan Brembo dalam membeli saham mereka sekaligus mengukuhkan kenyataan awal Tiraboschi mereka dalam perancangan mengambil alih syarikat besar – Reuters.

Pirelli mendapat satu lagi pengiktirafan apabila dipilih sebagai tayar rasmi bagi Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade dan CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP.

Tayar jenis Pirellie DIABLO Supercosa SP saiz 120/70 ZR17 depan dan 200/55 ZR17 belakang menjadi tayar pilihan Honda bagi jentera baharu itu.

Menariknya, tayar tersebut ketika ini sedang ‘beraksi’ di Litar Antarabangsa Losail, Qatar, bagi sesi pelancaran media CBR1000RR-R Fireblade.

Tayar DIABLO Supercosa SP lahir daripada pengalaman Pirelli sebagai penyumbang tayar utama Kejuaraan Superbike Dunia sejak 2004 dengan memindahkan teknologi perlumbaan ke dalam tayar berprestasi tinggi untuk kegunaan harian.

Berbanding dengan versi kompaun SC, DIABLO Supercosa SP memboleh penunggang untuk mengambil selekoh dengan lebih laju dan efisien.

Baru-baru ini, Honda melancarkan CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP dengan harga RM198,800.

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.

1. The Ducati Diavel 1260S is 90% new.

That’s right, almost the entire bike is new, only the headlight, tail light and the dash has been carried over, and that too from the X-Diavel. Everything from the mud guards to the swing arm and even the tyres are all new.

2. The bike is longer than before.

Just by a few mm, but the longer wheelbase makes a world of difference especially in long sweeping corners. The bike feels more stable and more like a cruiser, but with a mighty engine to match its power cruiser persona.

3. The standard is only available in one colour while the S is available in 2 colours.

Ducati found that the Diavel was hugely popular in black colour and then chose to offer it only on the high-spec S version. The standard version is available in the sandstone grey colour seen here, which is also available on the S version. Disappointed? Don’t be. The sandstone grey is a stunning colour, even when it is totally dirty.

4. The seat is 10mm higher than before.

That’s right, the seat of the new Diavel is slightly taller which is great news for tall riders. If you are vertically challenged, don’t worry, Ducati has you covered with a low seat option.

5. The electronics package has been substantially upgraded.

The riding modes are brilliant, especially Sport mode as it makes the bike feel like a full on sports bike. You get 3 riding modes – Sport, Touring and Urban – a vast array of parameters like ABS, Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, Cornering ABS, Ducati Power Launch (for those MotoGP-ish traffic light drag wars), a hands-free system that operates the keyless start and connects your bike to a dedicated mobile app, and a whole bunch more. And best thing is, you can tune these electronic safety nets down to the tiniest detail. Don’t like ABS interference but you want full the wheelie control on full alert? The bike will do that for you. No issues there.

6. There is no Carbon edition, just a standard model and a S model.

Just two models for now, and a X-Diavel later on for those who prefer a more cruiser-ish feel to their Diavel. The standard 1260 with no Ohlins and limited electronics and a 1260S which gives you all the toys, and some.

7. The Daytime Running Light is only available on the S model.

Yes that’s right. If you want the ultra-cool DRL headlight, that will cost you more moolah.

8. Ducati Quick Shifter is available as standard on the S, and as an option on the standard 1260.

Even you are thinking of buying the standard Diavel, opt for the DQS. It is the most amazing feeling to be banging home the gears with no loss of power and speed, no down time as you engage the clutch to hit the gears. You will thanks us for it later.

9. The tyres on the new Diavel are super sticky and work brilliantly in both wet and dry conditions.

The Pirelli Diablo Rosso III features dual compound technology (soft on the outside and hard on the inside). The outer, softer area is wider than before which gives you more grip even from mid-lean. The tyre gives you so much confidence in both dry and wet situations that it makes you feel like a better rider than you actually are, as this writer found out.

10. It is going to be launched in Malaysia next month – price unknown! Yet.

We are not sure of the exact date, but the new Diavel will be here very soon. And if you are in the market for a power cruiser that has performance to hunt down a sports bike, then this will be worth the wait.

Full review coming soon!

  • The Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC1 racing slicks are available for small capacity bikes.

  • They will be available by Round 1 of the 2019 Pirelli Malaysia Superbike Championship.

Everyone’s favourite race and performance tyre brand, Pirelli has launched the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SC1 V3 for smaller capacity bikes.

Smaller capacity classes are ever popular worldwide. We have the underbone a.k.a. cub prix class in Southeast Asia, before stepping up to the 250cc, 300cc and now 400cc classes. One of the biggest problems was finding the correct-sized tyres.

Pirelli recognizes this and debuts the Supercorsa racing slicks in 110/70-ZR17 front and 140/70-ZR17 rear sizes. The new tyres are made with the super-sticky SC1 compound. These are meant for 300cc and 400cc bikes, but the 250cc should find them useful, too.Indeed, Pirelli is the title sponsor and tyre provider for the World Superbike Championship which included the SuperSport 300 class.

Why the need for different tyres? Why not just use bigger rims to fit bigger sizes?

Smaller motorcycles do not have the weight and speed to create the type and of forces like big bikes do. As such, the tyres may not heat up enough and many not be able to retain the heat for optimum performance. Tyres designed for lighter bikes may have the same compounds as their bigger brothers but have slightly different construction.

The new tyres are now available in Europe and the US. got in touch in with the Malaysian Pirelli official distributor Southeast Asia Parts for confirmation. According to them, these new tyres will be available by the first round of the 2019 Pirelli Malaysia Superbike Championship (MSBK) 2019.

Get ready for even faster times in the Super 250 class!

*Note that these are racing slicks and the racetrack is the only place for them. Do not be foolish and mount them for road use!
