Ken,

Which did you buy? The GTS or the Diablo?

I had ordered the newer Diablo but seems that that one isn't in stock, so the dealer's parts guy called me and I will have the GTS installed tomorrow.
They are the same price up here and the pictures, looking backwards, appeared to have the same tread pattern.

My guess from Pirelli's description is that the Diablo is the "sport" tire vs the GTS being the "sport touring" tire. Likely characteristics would be more grip, but faster wear. The big question I have is regarding the wear. I'm getting pretty good mileage out of the GTS series tires. I'm looking forward to having a couple of members try out the Diablos so we can see how they compare. I have a new set of GTS tires in the garage and the ones on my scooter are still in great shape, so I won't be needing new tires for a while. By that time hopefully we'll have had some feedback.

Review of Rear Pirelli-GTS

Just got back from having the tire installed on the rear.
While I was waiting in the showroom I test drove the new AN650K5 just to see if there was a difference between mine with 9327 miles and a new one. Noticed some difference in the ride but I have my shocks adjusted stiffer.

Then...

I received mine with the new GTS on the rear and WOW!!!
I drove it around the block and it was so smooth that I had to stop the bike and get off to see if the tire was underinflated. NOPE

Road it for an additional 40miles (35 to 88 mph) and all I can say is that it feels better than the new burgman, and my bum is smiling

When my front is in and on with miles I will post more.

Danee,

You'll really be happy when you get the front GTS on. Installing a set of Pirelli GTS tires is almost like getting a suspension upgrade.

more news on tires---and a question

My backordered front tire is just that....backordered.
The vender says he is told out of stock. another vendor say backordered.

Having both vendors check for availability on the Diablos.

But on main question ..........Should I put a Diablo on the front and while having a GTS on the Rear?

Help

It is always better not to run mixed sets. But I did use up my original front Bridgestone with a Pirelli GTS on the rear. That was probably a worse match than the Diablo vs GTS that you are considering. Nothing terrible happened, but I didn't fully appreciate the Pirellis until I got the matching front on. If you need a tire now, and can get the Diablo, I'd probably go ahead with it.

Like Paul, I am using a GTS rear and a Bridgestone front and have not noticed any problems.
I think, from reading the Pirelli catalogue, that they have taken the Burgman 650 sizing out of the GTS line and moved it up to the Diablo line. The Diablo line is the sport bike line and this may better reflect the 650's preformance, it really isn't a scooter.
I think that in the future you will not be able to buy the GTS, at least the size is not list under the GTS line any more.

In any case, Bridgstone, Pirelli GTS or Diablo, they are are the same type of tire construction, tubeless radials, so they should all work and play well together. You are not mixing different types of construction or sizes.

Arizona Motorsports

For those looking, Arizona Motorsports is now aware that the scooter version of the Pirelli Diablo exists. They called it a replacement for the GTS, as well. They did annoy me a bit, however. They reported to me that they couldn't get the GTS and would have to substitute the Bridgestone. So, I asked them to cancel. Then they sit an order confirmation with just the one tire. I asked them to cancel. Then they sent a copy of the order with the Diablos:

Quote:
Pirelli Scooter Diablo 0340-0036 48.10
Sport Touring Tire:
Pirelli Diablo 120/70-15
Front Tire Burgman 650
(Will ship in 1-2 weeks)
Pirelli Scooter Diablo 0340-0035 1 39.95
Sport Touring Tire:
160/60S-14 TL Rear
Burgman 650 Radial
(Shipped)
I'd already ordered a set from Ron Ayers. In the end, I figured it will be nice to have an extra set around.

Ron Ayers is only slightly more expensive:
Partnumber: 0340-0036 - $46.18 x Qty. 1 = $46.18
Partnumber: 0340-0035 - $44.46 x Qty. 1 = $44.46

At least they seem to know what's going on.
