The Rosso Corsa was developed from Pirelli’s experience as the exclusive tire supplier in the World Superbike
Championship. It’s designed to outperform its predecessor in every possible performance measurement including: warm-up time, outright grip, and mileage durability. It sports a more slick-like tread pattern yet Pirelli claims it still offers consistent performance on wet road conditions.
The tire will be released in Europe after the first of the year and will then make its way stateside shortly after. Initial sizing will be limited to a 120/70-17 front and a 160/60-17 rear with additional rear tire size options being released in spring.
