Bought these to replace the stock Dunlops on my z900rs. Noticeable improvement in all operating conditions. Very little break in time. I grew up racing flat track on a frozen lake in Alaska, so I am in no way a timid rider. These tires have made an already agile machine better for me in every area.

The grip is so amazing . It's like you're glued to the street, I highly recommend it. Upgraded to DR3 from DR2 and there is a huge difference.
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

Question:Q: I currently have Pilot Power 3 on my 13' CBR1000RR. How would these tires compare as far as grip is concerned. I'm not too worried about longevity.Question asked 2 years 3 months ago
Question answered by ThumbsUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 2 years 3 months agoAnswer: A: They are pretty close, with the bigger bike the Rosso 3s seem to be a pretty popular switch, if you are only worried about grip I would recommend the Diablo Rosso Corsa which will be stickier but not last as long and the Diablo Supercorsa is even stickier than that but don't last nearly as long. So with longevity not really being the issue I would check out the Supercorsa tires.
Question answered by MotoexpertUser's contributor status: Top 25Question answered 2 years 3 months agoAnswer: A: Looks like the Rosso is going to com in at better traction under power and cornering. They are going to be less efficient at dispersing water due to tread design or lack there of on the clear outs. Also Rosso takes some time to get to temperature. Its an all around better grip tire and better cornering ability. Hope this helps man. The pilot power 3's are also great tires.
