On the road both are awesome.


If track day is on the radar- Rosso II

If not- Angel GT.

I have the rossa 2s and they're a great road tire! More grip then you'll ever need for street and they take a beating too.

how did you get on with these tyres? I have them on my Falco and they feel great but wasn't sure what they would be like on the Tuono. Some feedback would be very welcome. Cheers

Hi! I must buy new real tire to my DD1200. I wonder about the:
1. Pirelli Diablo Roso Corsa 2 or 3
2. Pirelli Angel ST
3. Pirelli Angel GT
Which do u recommend for driving on the road?

I run the Pirelli Angel GT on my multistrada, they are a great road tyre, and great 2up, and very good in the wet. (on my 4th set) My second choice would be Metzler M7RR, i run them on mu 1290, they are also great on the road, and in the wet, but have the added bonus being very good for medium to medium quick track day tyres. 8000Ks for the GTs,and 6000Ks for M7RRs.

I have just fitted Rosso 3 to my DD1200 for the IOM TT. Fantastic performers and good for the long motorway ride too without the squaring off issue. Pushed the bike hard on the coastal roads and those tyres never missed a beat. Highly recommended

Hmm..can u close your rear tire in dd1200?

I installed a set of Michelin PR4's on my DD 1200 in prep for a 2500km road trip though all of the best twisty roads in South Western BC Canada. I could not be more impressed with these tires. Rode very sportingly at times chasing a couple of talented riders on K1300R BMW's and comfortably stayed with them. Lead the pack on a rainy section and after making 3 full on hard stops for crazy deer with no skidding at all, and thinking that these tires had way more wet traction than I am used to, I started to push the bike a bit and for the first time in my life rode fairly quickly on a wet road. I understand that the wear rates are very good on these too and a friend with a BMW 1200RT said he got 12,000 km out of his last set which is about double the amount expected from the Dunlops or Pirelli's.
So I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for excellent dry traction, outstanding wet traction, and long lasting wear rates. Cheers T
