Anyone tried the new 125 fronts yet? (Diablo Superbike Slick)

Looks like they're designed for literbikes

DIABLO™ SUPERBIKE IN LARGER SIZE

As in 2013 with the historic switch from 16.5-inch tyres to 17-inch tyres, Pirelli intends to continue being a pioneer in development, setting the guidelines for the future. For this reason, throughout 2018, the Italian tyre manufacturer developed and made available to the World Superbike Championship riders some larger 200/65 rear and 125/70 front solutions. These sizes proved to be able to offer, compared to the standard sizes, greater stability, more grip thanks to the wider contact surface, and an increase in consistency in terms of performance, trajectory precision and support.

After a year of development, Pirelli has now decided to add to the range, and therefore to make available for purchase, the larger sizes in SC0 rear and SC1 front compound with the goal of completing the compounds range during the FIM World Superbike and FIM Endurance World Championships in order to then make them available on the market in 2020.

Doesn’t mean we can’t run them

The 200/65 is more what you’re seeing
