Given 84% while driving a Kawasaki ZXR 636 (180/55 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
Originally I had Diablo Strada's which lasted 9000 miles. I wanted the same again, but they were unavailable so the fitter recommended the Diablo's. I was hesitant, but once scrubbed in, I never looked back. The front is planted, the rear is grippy. I've used them on twisty back roads, motorway and track. I can't fault them except for squaring off after only a couple of thousand miles.

Given 86% while driving a Yamaha FZ1 (190/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 4,000 spirited miles
Had these tyres on my Cb650f and loved them so put a set on my FZ1N prior to touring Europe, they’ve been fanatastic, once they’re hot they provide mountains of grip, and not bad in the wet either
Managed to get 4100 miles out of the rear before the cords were showing, that was 4000 odd miles of spirited riding fully loaded with luggage however.

Given 80% while driving a Suzuki 2000 vatari jx2.0 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
I bought a set of these for my SV650. I couldn't afford the more expensive Pirelli tyres so was recommended this by a fitter. They are a revelation. I'm a nippy but smooth rider & they tyres have given me over 5000 miles of easy, grippy commuting. They are a 'sticky'-type tyre so pick up small stones and grit a lot but never damage the tyre. This is the best wet weather I've ridden on, dry grip is great and the feedback is good, inspiring confident handling.

I would definitely recommend these for most middleweight motorbikes, provided you can find a tyre your size.

Given 90% while driving a Suzuki SV650S (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 spirited miles
Great Tyre, never let me down once. Ridden over the Isle of Man TT circuit, got them nice and hot, started to cook a little bit, but with plenty of grip to spare. Only downside is that i've completely eaten the rear up after about a year, and 4000 miles. Got another fitted as i was so happy with them. Not slipped once in the wet, but spun up occasionally in the cold if ive tried to put too much through them.

Given 53% while driving a Triumph Daytona 675 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
I don't doo too many miles on my 675 but after 2800 km's the front of the supercora from new was worn out. As I replace in pairs I thought I would get some standard Diablo's, after 1000 km's I am replacing them, the Supercorsa had a great feel, and never moved on hard cornering. The Diablo moves around on the back n throttle, a bit unnerving for me,
