Diablo Rosso II vs Angel ST

Anyone have any experience with either of these tires? I have a Brut 750S
which i use exclusively for back roads and i need new skins. Any advice on one vs the other?

I have had both, if you do many km's go with the Angel's, great wear and not too bad in the wet, if you want more grip but half the km's go with the other.

Thanks for the input, about how many km's did you get out of the rosso II's? Also are these still the tires you still use or have you found something better?

From memory i got close to the 4k mark, i currently am running the corsa tyres, very soft but they stick, must say they have worked extremely well. I cant see myself getting more than 3k out of them. Well on the rear anyway.

The best thing to do with the tires i found is asses the type of riding you do (and be honest with yourself) then apply them to suit your riding style/road surface/wet/ track etc.
I think its too dangerous not to.
Hope this helps.

I was looking at the Angel's last year - the only reason I did not pull the trigger was because I did the swap one tire at a time with the back last year and the front last week - didnt want different tread patterns - but I have heard nothing but good about the Angel's and the tread life.

I had Angel ST in my 695. Great all around and great wear resistance.

I have angels on my touring bike.... Sounds like I you are a backroads guy on the brutale, the Rosso II may be better. Don't have the Rosso II, but have the Rosso Corsas. Are the IIs an upgraded version? Looking them up it seems they are similar.

I love the Pilot Pure on my 748, also mounted a set on my 750 Brutale, but haven't ridden it with them yet. The bike is still in pieces.

The Pilot Pure is very sticky, and works well in both the wet and the dry. Works very very well.
