i used to have the diablo rosso 2 on my 848 ducati but tried the rosso 3 when they came out and was amazed on how much better they were in every aspect to the rosso 2 (which was also pretty good). The durability is lower cuz they are grippy but I like feeling comfortable in tight or fast turns laying it down

Very happy with the Pirelli tires. Had a tough time deciding between several brands and models. For the price and performance I'm glad I bought the Pirelli DR3!
I put a set of these on my Ducati 748 when it needed tires about 4k-5k miles ago. I'm more or less satisfied overall, but will be switching to something else now that they're shot. I commute on this bike, so no crazy antics - and I'm more interested in grip from a safety perspective vs. all-out performance.
The front tire from this set was great. I typically wear fronts out first, and many other brands of fronts have given me sloppy handling as they wore, due to uneven wear. This tire has worn evenly and still feels good, despite being totally shot. I love this front tire.
Meanwhile, the bi-compound rear - designed to enhance wear on the middle of the tire due to the harder compound - not so great. Sure enough, the middle of the tire has been long-wearing, but almost TOO long-wearing. I typically find that rears of other tire sets go bald in the middle first, so I was hoping this tire would avoid that. Well, it did. But instead, it just went bald on the sides. This kind of kills the point of the long-lasting center compound extending tire life. The tire is still shot, in about the same mileage as I've worn out other rear tires. Plus, there's now a pretty distinct ridge between the harder center compound, which wore more slowly, and the softer side compound, which wore more quickly. You can feel this uneven wear as the bike leans. Worse still, the compound used in the middle is really just too hard for confident grip. On more than one occasion, I've locked the rear under moderate braking during my commute, something that didn't happen with other tires on this bike. It's not TERRIBLE by any stretch, and it's not a big deal to self-correct and adjust your front/rear braking bias as you ride, but I'd much prefer a tire with a little more stick in the middle, even if that meant the middle wore out first. So, I'm back online writing a "wouldn't recommend" review of these tires as I search for their replacement.
I bought these to replace the Diablo Rosso 2 tires originally installed on my Ducati Monster 821. Overall, they handle great and look awesome too. Motosport had a good deal on the combo and they shipped them really fast... had them on my doorstep in 2 days. I'll have to follow up once I've put more miles on them.
Third set of d.r.3 and they get awesome treadwear life and warm up time. No bad things to say about this savage tire set.
Bought these a couple weeks ago awesome tires so far. If your like getting low on turns I would definitely recommend. Can’t rate durability because only had them for 2 weeks.
Bought tires about 3 weeks ago super stickey probably have around 700 miles on them now and they are like brand new still motosport.com did a great job shipping them out to me on time 3 days not bad and the price you you cant beat it
I used a new set of these at a recent track day and they worked really well. The scrubbed in right away, and had great feel and grip.
