Panigale eats tires for breakfast , lunch , and dinner WTF !!!

This is the second set of Pirelliís I will be replacing with less than 5k on the bike . I love the tires but man they are not great on tire life . I make it a habit of replacing the fronts when the tears are shot . Just a personal preference of mine but . This is the second rear tire that down to the steel belting in the center . Pirelli should really make the centers a little bit more durable . This is getting outta hand . Also , this bike hasn't seen a track day yet . Interested in any ones feedback , personal experience or if anyone has switched to another tire .

grip bars , grab throttle and twist !

Yes, great tyres but very soft. The Corsa II now have the 200/60 rear and should last longer without too much of a performance difference, especially if you are not using your bike on the track. Unfortunately they are not yet available in Australia but they are available in Europe (and perhaps the USA as well).

Yep 2 track days @ $550 a set, basically doubles the cost of the track day. Oh well, can't really complain, it is 220hp or so after all, what do you expect ?

I bought some Michelin power RS which will be this beasts next victim.... they are going on today and I will report back with updates soon . I like what I hear about these tires as they are a dual compound tire with a harder center ....

It will interesting to see how well Ducati's "Tire Learn" function works.

You don't have tire guys at your track? Usually they have plenty at great prices; these are the guys at our tracks https://tracksidetires.com/product/p...perbike-slick/

Page 186 of the Owners Manual.

Different tire manufacturers use different profiles.

The stock setup is calibrated for Pirelli Super Diablos.

When you install a tire with a different profile it buggers up the DWC, DSC, DTC, etc.

The "learn" function allows the ECU to adjust these parameters to accommodate different tires.
