Anybody tried the Rosso III's yet? I loved the II's on the Ape and am wondering whether or not anybody's had real life experience with the new model yet.

I was a big fan of the Rosso II's for a long time. I tend to be stupid and just buy Super Corsa SP's nowadays even though I commute every day as well.
I should probably go back to the Rossos. Someone buy a set and let us know how they are!
how quick do you chew up a set of supercorsa's street riding?

Mate picked up a set last week for his '15 S1000RR. Took it for a spin up our local twisties, and coming from a long time Pirelli whore, sadly, I can't say I like them.
Although there was no slip or anything that should spook you, I just didn't feel confident on them. On that bike on cooked Dunlops I've easily managed 55 degree of lean and felt fine, I maybe got to 45 with the Rosso 3's and I was terrified.
No idea why, but I just don't mesh with them. Shame, as I was really looking forward to them.

The rosso III is a sport tire. The q3 and Corse SP are trackday tires that are DOT legal. Big difference. Personally I use the RS10's. Get around 2000 miles from a rear. But I don't commute on my zx10R.

also curious about the rosso III for my rsv4 as i burned through the supercorsa pretty quick. Really liked the way bridgstones felt on my 4th gen so iv been contemplating the RS10 but if they only last less than 2000 mi i would just go with the supercorsa again

I only got 2000 miles from a rear and 4000 miles from a front the RS10's. That is all aggressive street riding. On the plus side, they are over $100 less than the Super Corsa.

Rosso III's I had em on the blade. Prefer the Rosso Corsa myself but with both the rear centerline goes relatively quick. Rosso III's are more street orientated, better in wet but slower direction changes. They grip well though but not as good as the Corsa's in the dry and not as planted through bumpy sections of road at pace as the Corsa's.

Ran 32 psi cold front and 32-36 psi cold rear pending on conditions and if I was carrying something behind.

I currently have Rosso III's on my ZRX1200 road bike and they are a good tyre (yes, that is how you are supposed to spell tire!). I usually run M7RR's on the big girl, but the Rosso III's feel just as good. So far, they have not let go at all and I have pushed them pretty hard (for road riding). I haven't tested them out on a fully wet road though, so can't comment on how they go in the wet.

I got 2 sets but haven't used them yet. Best tire I EVER ran in my life were the original Corsa III tires when they first came out. Those tires done more for improving my confidence in my tires than any before or after. Worse feeling high end tires I ever had were the 2CT . Everyone else loved them but me and my wife both put a new set on when they came out and before the first 50 miles we were both looking at each other with curled up lips. Both sets dismounted before they had 300 miles on them and replaced with Corsa III... Can't beat the Pirelli rubber ! Only thing is when you first make the swap you got to add about 2 teeth to the rear depending on what you had before the Pirelli tires are always taller than all the rest. The Mich are always shortest of them all

had my Rossi 3 on for few days now just the rear not a bad tire. For some reason I am more confident on my super corsa then I am these. after maybe 3 to 4 mins of riding depending how hard they are warm and good to go I have yet to hit the hard curves with it on yet but will do so tomorrow. For a tire around the street with performance and longevity not a bad choice good response a few occasions where the back did step out on me without hard leaning just in and out traffic but could have been tire cold doesn't happen often enough to state the tire is at fault. I will give the tire pressures I'm running tomorrow.

Night and day difference in grip to the Super Corsa. Be much more gentle on the Rosso III's compared to riding the Super Corsa.

Personally I have moved away from Pirelli to Bridgestone S21's for my ride. Great grip, good in the wet and they have something sorely lacking in the Pirelli's - Longevity like 2 to 3x the life of Rosso III or Rosso Corsa's on my bike. ))
