  • Just made a pact with El Diablo

    I just order a set of Pirelli Diablo Stradas (120/70/17 - 150/70/17) for my Kat.
    $192.68 including shipping and all, at American Motorcycle Tire (thanks Lou for the link).
    In europe, they say that those are Z6's w/different pattern. I'll keep you informed.

    May well be the case -- Metzeler manufacturers all of Pirelli's commercial motorcycle tires. Let us know.

        Look at these minor differences (although I see an apex shape difference -- the Z6 is sharper sloped off-apex):

        Pirelli Diablos Strada Rear


        Note also that the motorcycle tire websites for the two firms are run by the same development team -- same fitment database, same directory tree structures, etc.

            I just saw the add for these in the new Cycle Canada.

            Make sure you give us a few updates over the life of the tire, I for one am very interested on how they perform.

              Cyberpoet,

              Could you post both front tires to compare?

              Thank you.

                I would have if I could have, but Pirelli motorcycle tire's website didn't have the picture loaded (nor any info on front sizing specs for the stradas).

                You can get an idea of the front tread pattern here (osciallating center groove, just like the Z6's):

                  Here's a pic of the front tire...
                  I got the tires... if I could only get my hands on that ST4.

                        Hey, Cyber: how can you paste pixs on the board without "attach" them?

                          use IMG tag (in square brackets) and reference the original URL the file is at, then close it with the [/IMG] tag.

                              Wooaa! Over the weekend the price of the tires went $19 up.
                              Coincidentally Ron Ayers is offering the Stradas (they didn't have them on friday) but they are even more expensive that the Z6's.
                              Hey MD86, we order them just on time!
