My rear stock pirelli was totally worn out after 5.200km, and got a good price from my local dealer on a pair of diablo rosso 3.
Big improvement in terms of feeling, amount of angle I take, braking, and it looks awesome as well. I still have not been able to test them in wet conditions, but it really improves the bike’s handling.
major differences is in the cornering, the factory STR’s feels very tippey. I understand it is normal for a ADV tire to feel like that, a Road tire will give me more confidence and more importantly “feel” as the suspension moves around enough already.
STR’s are a good tire by any means, I did a 800km day ride in sun and rain and they didn’t miss a beat.
