    Check it out. I'm having my local bike shop checking into this. If it's true that I'll get two sets. One for the Beemer and one for the Aprilia.

    If they are anywhere as good as their sister tire the Metzeler Sportec then they should be excellent tires.

    The Diablo Strada is similar to the Metzler Z6 Roadtech. The Diablo is the one that is equivalent to the Sportech M1. I'd be interested to know what Pirelli has to be the peer to the new Sportech M3.
     
  4. Evangelina wears a Strada on her rear. I still have the Diablo on the front, since it didn't pick up a nail when Evangelina did. :(

    The Strada is a great tyre. It grips well for everyday riding and I hope it last longer than the Diablo, since the bloody things are slightly dear.

    Take care mates and keep the rubber side down. ;c :)

    That's what I meant.
    I have the Z6 Roadtechs on my ZX10R and love 'em.

    Depending on how much burnouts you do, you'll love that Z6's wear.

    I'm up to 13,000-miles on the front and 8,000-miles on the rear. I usually cruise at 80+MPH on the freeway and average around 300-miles a week on the Beemer. I would ride it more but the Tuono gets jealous.;f

    On the Diablo, I'm up to 7,700-miles on the front and 3,500-miles on the rear. The rear starts to look worn. The first rear tire went to 4,200-miles. I think that I could have squeezed 4,500 out of it but I didn't try.
