I wasn't aware they were the successor to the Corsa 3's. They havn't advertised this tyre very well at all. :dontknow:
I wasn't either.:dontknow: I thought they were a totally different tire with a harder compound.

They've been out for a long time now. Several members are running them.

I don't believe it to be the sucessor. I thought it was a different tire. I don't believe it to be dual compound as the III is.

Enjoy! Corsa three are a great tire. Had them on a 750, the rear seemed to grip for days and wasn't wearing too badly when I sold the bike.

I'll let you know in a few days, I'm getting a set (not for the 10r though). probably not too much different than DCIII.

Finally got some miles on mine today, I must say theyre awesome!!!! It wasnt a really spirited ride but the feel and grip is just phenominal!!! Im also on a 190/55 instead of the 190/50 that came with my bike( I know its supposed to be a 190/55 but mine apparently came with the wrong tire!!) so Im still getting used to the profile but I came off of dc3's and I dont see a fault on these tires yet. I love Pirelli!!!!

Great to hear... I have DC III now and turn in is neutral which I like. Lean angle grip is great too. Only fault on DC III is the center takes a few minutes to warm up.

Is the feedback from the grip better than the DC III and what tire pressure are you running?

GLAD TO HEAR THEY ARE BETTER THAN DC III; that's a tough act to follow!

I weigh about 250 so center grip usually isnt a problem LOL. The feedback is great, I know exactly what that rear tire is doing at all time in the corners, I follwed a buddy through one tight corner in 1st and let on the throttle kind of hard and the front started lifting up at near full lean so Im pretty happy with the grip. I havent played with pressure too much yet as I started the ride ith only 100 miles on the tires, but I was runnin 40/34, being a big guy if I run em low though they tend to flatten out too quickly. Ive had 4 sets of dc3's and I think Pirelli has done a great job with this new tire, cant wait to get out there again

Have used Corsa IIIs since they came out in 06 and Rossos since they came out as well two years back. Very neutral handling tires which I definitely prefer. Best part is grip...Dry, hot, wet, the thing sticks. Warm is better than old Bstone BXs I used to use. Price is big con but you pay for what you get.
