I'd like to get my hands on a set of those "sticky buns".


And the tires sound and look pretty bichin' too.....

I just had these installed on my Z750S last weekend. Only been on them a few days, but I'm very happy with my tire choice. Planning to have a set put on my ZX10R in a couple of weeks.

I need high-molecular-weight reactive polymers in my tires. And polycarbonite too!

I wonder if they make a 19" front?

No Rosso II for you. But Pirelli does make three Scorpion tires for your bike: the Sync, the Trail Dual Sport, and the Rally. And if you factor in Metzeler, there are even more choices.

I've been hearing good stuff about the Pilot II's for the Vee. I never go off-pavement, so I can skip that feature.

Glad to hear you're liking them, too! BTW, I still think the Z750S is one of the motorcycle America's greatest unheralded bikes.

Default I see the light

"And here’s why the Diablo Rosso IIs make a lot of sense for sportbike riders. It’s a tire that’s grippy enough to drag a CBR’s footpeg on the track, yet it warms up quicker and lasts far longer than a race-compound tire, plus it’ll have much better traction in the wet."


I'm sold
