Pirelli confident new tyre range will be best ever

The new compounds are 'softer, more versatile and better performing,' with two front-tyre choices available that are suitable for every race on the calendar with an increased range of use developed by Pirelli for each compound.

The Diablo Wet is a new intermediate tyre, specifically designed to offer riders and teams a better solution in mixed conditions, for example on a wet but drying track.

Its characteristics are such that the tyre could play a decisive role in determining the outcome of some races this season and will be a vital option in the strategies available to teams during wet races.

Pirelli will also continue to supply tyres in the British Superbike and Supersport Championships this year plus the Superstock 600 and 1000 classes and the Ducati 848 Challenge and Triumph Triple Challenge series.
