i haven't personally tried the diablo's on my bike, but i've ridden my buddy's MV that had them...the backend was all kinds of squirrely. I ran some dunlops at the track, and was very impressed with them. I dunno what the price difference is, but the dunlops would get my money i think.

No idea personally but a mate over here put the Diablo's on his Z750... They were awesome and he couldn't stop raving about them...

So he went and put a set on his 05 6R and hated them... :O

So essentially, i've been no help at all... :dowhat

I ran a set of Diablo's (Diablo Corsa) on the TLS and liked them a lot. But I use Supercorsa's now. I haven't ridden on any Dunslops for years.

Diablo's are GREAT tyres. I'd go for normal Diablo's over Diablo Corsa's unless you're planning on trackday action.
Haven't used dunlops for a while but seem to remeber they had loads and loads of feel but very little actual grip! fun though.
Standard Diablos lasted me 5000 miles+ including commuting to and from work, 4 trackdays and loads of general hooning around. Great tyres, quick warm up, long lasting , great feel, good ride and loads of grip too. The perfect tyre????? they are for me.

My PP's lasted me till 6500miles. It's a Medium compound tire so it's not really something that'll last you through the whole year if you ride everyday. I'd say PP's would probably last around 4-6months under everyday riding. Haven't tried the qualifers or the diablos, but supposedly *don't quote me on this* the diablos could go up to about 8k miles.

Diablo's lasted me AGES! Rear finally gave up after around 6500 miles, including several trackdays - at which they were ace. Great Great tyres. Awesome on the road, brilliant on track. Really don't see the need for Diablo Corsa's when these are sooooo good.
I'll be getting another pair.

I normally run diablos but at the mo I'm a bit short of cash and the bike has some third world shite that the shop shod the her with before they sold it to me. Very squirly and lots of fun. Will go back to my preferance when she needs new boots tho, or maybe, just maybe try some BT's?
